VESSEL WALK THROUGH

From the companionway, the vast main salon in gorgeous teak opens out with an L-shaped settee to starboard, forward of the navigation station and chart table. To port is another L-shaped settee with a large folding leaf inlaid teak table. 

 The enormous galley is set to port aft of the main salon.  It features a large top opening freezer, double ceramic sinks, an electric 3 burner stove and oven, a full-size refrigerator, and microwave oven. 

 Moving past the galley one enters the owner's spacious and beautifully appointed stateroom.  A king-size center-line bed beneath four transom port lights sits between beautifully finished teak cabinets and multi-level shelving with brass keeper rods.  The ample hanging lockers are cedar lined, and again, beautifully finished. There is a large vanity sink with mirror set on the forward bulkhead, and to starboard is the head, with Vacu-flush toilet and separate shower compartment.

Moving through the Main Salon, The companionway leading from the salon to the cockpit is in the center of the aft bulkhead. On the starboard side of the companionway is the Navigation Station with all the latest equipment (see "Electronics and Navigation" for equipment list). Portside is a Bar with ice-maker. 

The walk-in Workroom is accessed just Starbd of the companionway to the cockpit. In the workroom are storage boxes, room for washer-dryer and the main AC power panel. When you first enter the workroom area, you will find counter space. Forward of the box storage area is the main electrical 120-volt panel (which was totally upgraded). The centerline, walk-in, Engine Room is entered from the workroom through an insulated door

Forward of the main salon down a hallway to starboard is the crew cabin with double bunk berths. There is also a sink and plenty of storage. Forward of the crew cabin also to starboard is a large head with Vacu-flush toilet and separate shower enclosure. 

To port is a large and well-appointed guest stateroom that has a double bed and a vanity sink with mirror, as well as an en-suite head with Vacu-flush head and separate shower enclosure. Once again, the cabinets and shelving are beautifully finished, and a large mirror on the bulkhead gives the room a light and spacious feel.

The second guest stateroom is all the way forward.  It has a double bed and like the other staterooms, it has cedar lined hanging lockers and beautifully finished teak on walls and storage areas, as well as bookshelves that hold a small library.

There is teak and holly on the exposed floor surfaces

The entire yacht is designed with 6 opening deck hatches and approximately 22 opening side ports, which combined provide excellent natural ventilation and light in every cabin. There are also three, 16000-BTU, air-conditioning units.   The interior, from stem to stern, is finished in exotic hardwood, creating a comfortable atmosphere and welcoming ambiance. There are hanging lockers and drawers for storage in all staterooms. All baths have Vacu-Flush heads and stall showers.  Proceeding up the companionway, four steps from the salon, one arrives in the large center cockpit. This area provides easy seating for eight, but as many as twelve or more can gather around the cockpit. While entertaining, the aft deck refrigerator (drink box) with holding plates is a major asset. There is an enormous amount of clear deck space for extra outdoor living and fun.

Comments

This exquisitely built yacht has been continuously upgraded and lovingly maintained by a few knowledgeable owners. She is perfect for serious, long-distance cruising or relaxing sunset sails. Easily handled by two adults, her sail plan with 2x #65 electric winches in the cockpit, bow thruster and center-cockpit layout lend themselves to comfortable, shorthanded sailing.  There a total of 4 private staterooms, with three forward, 2 with queen size beds and en suite head and separate stall showers, the third is a crew room with private sink. The owner's state room is aft with a queen size, centerline bed and en- suite head and separate stall shower.  Vessel has a 1000-gallon fuel capacity and carries 600 gallons of water! Her Cat 3208, 220 hp naturally aspirated diesel with Hundested feathering prop, can propel her while motor sailing at 8 to 10kts at 1100rpm while she is burning only 1.7 gallons of fuel per hour. This gives her a motor sailing range of over 5,000 nm. 

The Vessel has a blue-ribbon blend of features - she is stable and sea-kindly, strongly built for both shallow water and ocean cruising. She is fast and easily handled. She has trans-oceanic range under power. The practical walk-in engine/work room with bench features top quality equipment and ease of maintenance. The comforts of home are unparalleled in a yacht of this size. She is a versatile, all-encompassing cruiser. Wellington Yachts built the hull and it was finished by Windship
