Vessel Walk-through


  • Midnight Blue Gelcoat
  • White Boot Top
  • Gold Cove Stripe
  • Sabre White Deck Color
  • Beige Non-Skid Color


The cockpit is entered through the port transom door from the hydraulic swim platform/dinghy lift (with remote control), or from either port or starboard cockpit sides. The swim platform has optional 6" pop-up cleats and dinghy chocks that fold down flush with the platform. Through the transom door, the L-settee is to starboard, and sheltered from sun and rain by the electric Sure Shade. The cockpit has the optional teak sole, and added pop-up fender cleats to port and starboard. A curved stairway is also to starboard, and leads to the spacious flybridge. Engine room access is from a large hatch in the cockpit sole, and the additional 3rd Volvo joystick is on the port side.


The roomy flybridge has twin Ultraleather Stidd seats on the centerline and to starboard. A large U-shaped Ultraleather settee is to port with a custom 12"X39" gloss table, which accommodates 8. There is a full duplicate helm station with engine and electronics controls. The custom radar mast is just aft of the bimini covering the flybridge. A dual beam searchlight is installed on the front of the flybridge, the EPIRB at the base of the mast, and the Kahlenberg triple chrome horns forward to starboard.


Instead of the standard hinged door, slightly oriented inward, from the cockpit into the main salon, there is a custom full beam, sliding glass aft door. The entire aft bulkhead is vertical glass, with a sliding glass door, opening from the main salon into the cockpit. There is a retractable Ocean Air shade for the aft glass door for privacy.

To starboard the Ultrsuede L settee faces aft, toward the action and the water, with a beautiful high gloss end table at the aft end of the settee. The 32" flat screenTV on an electric actuator, is hidden in a cabinet between the Stidd seats and the starboard settee. Opposite is a custom straight settee with another high gloss end table at the aft end and an end table forward with built in liquor bottle storage below. The custom gloss teak cocktail/dining table is on an electric pedestal for ease of use. There are cream colored linen drapes available.

In the middle of the salon is a discreet hatch, powered by an electric actuator, that opens into the large climate controlled utility room with a stairway, where, among other things, the side by side washer and dryer can be found. There is extensive custom shelving throughout, as well as extra outlets which can be used for a wine cooler or other uses.

Helm deck: Forward of the starboard settee is the lower helm with two Ultraleather Stidd seats mounted on a cherry cabinet that houses the ice maker. All electronic and engine gauges and controls are on the helm pod and bulkhead. There is a door to the side deck from the helm with an additional hand rail overhead.

Forward of the port settee is a built in nav station with chart and laptop/ipad storage with electrical outlets for charging. Going forward below the nav station is the custom double glass door breaker panels.

Down 3 steps is the large galley to port (more below), and to starboard, through custom double doors, is the master stateroom with a queen island berth and an ensuite head and shower. Forward is the VIP suite with its optional electric scissor berth (the queen island berth splits into two separate twin berths) and an ensuite head and shower. The scissor berth has been found to be very convenient for couples, children and single guests.

There are three air conditioning units on this lower level, Accord shades on all ports, Ocean Air screens/blinds on the hatches, multiple extra outlets and USB ports, dimmer switches, and TVs in each stateroom. Also, larger stainless steel push button latches have been installed on all doors and drawers. The Beam Central Vac cleaner with its 32' hose is stored under the galley stairs.
