FINESSE features berths for up to 8 in a three-stateroom layout. The interior has an open feeling with inordinate ventilation and light sources. This airiness is complimented by the "Herreshoff" styling and the cherry ceiling located throughout. Beneath the surface, every space has been thought through and optimized for stowage and easy access.
Forward in a very roomy stateroom with V-berth and en-suite head. The hull sides are covered with cherry battens. Storage abounds under and outside of the v-berth with a generous hanging locker aft. The head has a handheld shower and overhead opening hatch for good ventilation.
The salon area of the boat is bright white with custom canvas doors located outboard of the port main salon settee. A removable custom carbon fiber/Kevlar pipe berth has been fitted to port in the main salon to create an additional secure and comfortable berth when at sea. When not in use, it discretely stows under the outboard starboard shelf in the aft Pullman berth. A second additional custom berth is located outboard to starboard
A lovely folding table seats 6 for dinner. The table is flanked by a custom L-shaped settee to port and a straight settee to starboard. The cabin sole was replaced with a custom L-M teak and holly sole. This sole can be covered with a custom racing blue water sole, which provides a safe, durable, non-slip surface.
The U-shaped galley is very well laid out and would please any cook at sea. Generous counter space and storage is found here. A large well insulated ice box fitted with Sea Frost engine driven refrigeration is located forward of the 3 burner Force 10 propane stove with oven (new in 2011). The large double sink is fitted with H&C pressure water as well as a water filtration system and a foot pump for fresh and water.
Just aft of the galley area is the second head which features a hand-held shower and a wet locker for foul weather gear. The head is light and airy with good ventilation and a properly sized foot print which allows adequate elbow room yet safely sized for being at sea.
Across from the galley is the nav station which features a forward-facing seat with large charting area. Outboard of the charting area is a deep storage shelf, the vessel's electrical panel an additional instrumentation. Under the seat is a custom storage locker.
Behind the nav station is the third stateroom with a double berth measuring over 6'6". Storage is found on the outboard shelf and under the berth. Just forward of the berth is a bureau and hanging locker
