Being one of two similar yachts, this 85' Jongert Motor Yacht HALCYON DAYS was built in the mid 1980s. HALCYON DAYS is built to German Lloyd's classification with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, making her heavier and larger in length but shallower in draft. In 2007, she underwent a substantial refit, which included a spectacular redesign of her interior. The galley was elevated from the deck below, and added in its place was a fourth stateroom, the media room, and an additional head. The aft deck was extended four feet which allowed more space and private crew accommodations. Her engine room was gutted and rebuilt with new equipment. HALCYON DAYS rendered in fully restored condition with an extremely strong structure and mechanics.
Entering HALCYON DAYS through the aft French doors, you will find yourself in an elegant salon that gives a stunning impression as she is fabricated with warm sapele woodwork. On the port side of the salon, there is an L-shaped couch for comfortable lounging. To starboard, disguised by the cabinetry below, there is a Plasma TV with an entertainment center. The windows on both sides of the salon may be lowered for you to enjoy a nice, natural sea breeze.
As you enter via the aft French doors, you will notice a curved staircase to the port side. This will take you down to the delightful full-beam master stateroom. Flowing along the staircase structure, and through the master, is the same rich sapele paneling as the salon. This master stateroom features a king berth and three hanging closets with ample cupboard and drawer storage. There is a TV with a DVD player mounted on the wall to starboard. To port, there is a lady's vanity with a stool. Adjoining the berth's night table is a two-seat settee. The marble-lined master bath includes a Jacuzzi tub and toilet, bidet, shower, and sink. All fittings have gold finishes. At the end of the master stateroom's companionway, you may access the engine room.
Forward of the salon, and to starboard, you will notice the mahogany inlaid bar as it is equipped with a sink and includes plenty of storage for glassware, wine, etc.
Fore of the inlaid bar, you will be approaching the buffet bar and well-furnished galley.
Forward of the galley is the pilothouse where the remaining staterooms are accessible. To port and forward is the guest stateroom that features twin berths and a pullman. Also, this stateroom is equipped with drawer storage and a hanging closet. Outboard, you will see a built-in TV/DVD and sound system. The guest bath is located forward with a tiled, circular shower, toilet, and sink.
To starboard is a second guest stateroom with a double berth and upper single berth. This stateroom also has drawer storage and a hanging closet. The ensuite bath is similar to that on the opposite to port. The two guest staterooms are paneled with hand-rubbed teak.
The VIP stateroom is aft of the foyer to starboard. This stateroom features a queen berth, night table, storage, a hanging locker, and an ensuite head/shower.
Across the way is a study/media room which can be converted into a fourth guest cabin. In this entertainment area, you will find a Plasma TV with a DVD player and a U-shaped settee.
Back up to the helm, there is a unique double bench seat that is able to slide forward at the helmsman's leisure. There are cabinets on either side of the helm for extra storage space. Starboard of the helm controls is a chart table with a seat and storage for a collection of charts. The communication center is located about-face of the chart table on the bulkhead.
The flybridge can be accessed from the port-side ladder in the pilothouse. The flybridge is a generously spacious area where you can enjoy sunbathing, fresh air, and spectacular views of all in which you are surrounded by. Over the helm is a bimini with a double-arch mast. Lounging is provided to port and starboard of the helm, with storage areas below.
To the port aft end of the flybridge you can descend down to the aft deck where you will notice a large settee and table - a luxurious ambiance to relax or enjoy outdoor dining.
To port of the aft deck, there is a curved staircase leading down to the cockpit area. Facing forward, there is a hatch that, if opened, reveals the captain's cabin. In the cabin is a queen-size berth and an ensuite head/shower.
The foredeck can be accessed via sidedecks on the port and starboard sides. Extra storage is provided, along with two lounge seats.
