BIG DECISION has been maintained without regard to cost by her owner. She is loaded with custom features and creature comforts which provide a luxurious platform for cruising, and a shoal draft for gunkholing. This Talaria 55 Motoryacht, was built as “THUNDER” for a knowledgeable and experienced owner who was very involved in the build, as is evident in countless details that have made this a truly unique boat. With her twin 1300-hp MAN diesel engines, the Hamilton Waterjets, and the Hinckley JetStick, the boat has great performance and reliability, and is easily handled by one or two.
A 17'9" beam allows for spacious accommodations including a large cockpit, comfortable pilothouse area, open galley, a guest cabin with twin berths, and two heads with stall showers, washer/dryer, and a luxurious master suite with queen-sized center-line bunk.
This interior is reminiscent of a bygone era of boating. The interior is finished in high gloss varnished cherry with custom detailing, a bright varnished teak and tulipwood cabin sole, and an overhead of painted v-groove paneling and custom detailed exposed deck beams. All closets are lined in planked cedar. The overheads are cream lacquer wood with high-gloss cherry accents reminding us of the old Hinckley sailing yachts. Four highly polished stainless dorades, eight opening screened portlights and nine opening overhead hatches provide great light and natural ventilation, augmented by reverse cycle air conditioning.
Raised panel doors are cherry, and cabin liners are cherry-sheathed. The large overhead hatches have Ocean Air screens and shades. Opening ports with screens custom faux painted to match cherry interior provide additional natural ventilation, augmented by reverse cycle air conditioning. Custom cabin lighting throughout include halogen swivel lights and Cantalupi Cupid satin-nickel bulkhead lamps with rheostat controls. All interior electrical outlets and light switches have cherry covers. Interior cushions are covered in Spinneybeck Blue leather with antler buttons. Countertops throughout are custom including Honey Onyx stone and padded leather with cherry handrail bases in the master stateroom.
