    This vessel represents a fully equipped 145' Christensen with several upgrades that have become a trademark of the Christensen yacht family. She features an on-deck master stateroom with office, and four staterooms located midship on the lower deck, all with spacious ensuite heads. Luxurious high- gloss painted wood with recessed lighting is featured throughout. With a large aft deck, spacious sky lounge for entertaining and sun deck with Jacuzzi tub and bar, she is ideal for entertaining family and friends, or for charter.


    Entering the main salon through the aft deck, one quickly realizes the extensive amount of space for guests to relax and enjoy themselves in. An exquisite combination of wood, fabrics, stones and carpet are featured throughout. The seating area offers a large sofa, love seat, and two chairs centered around a large coffee table of etched glass and marquetry. The AV Entertainment System is complete with Crestron control and Lutron "One Touch" electrical lighting. To create the open concept feel, custom madrona wood columns flank a glass panel etched with shell detail, and the tops of the columns feature metal palm fronds separating the salon and dining area without blocking them off from each other.


    The formal dining area features a huge rectangular table custom made in Holland, which comfortably fits 10 adults in large, plush seats. Port and starboard, buffet cabinets offer ample storage for fine china, cutlery and tableware. A custom painting between the galley and dining area can be lowered to reveal a glass window allowing guests to choose to see through to the galley or for privacy during meals.


    The galley, just forward of the dining area and to port, features light-tone marble and neutral creme cabinetry done in a tasteful country-French style decor, giving the galley a comfortable, inviting atmosphere. The custom hood above the stove features a custom light blue "under the sea" tile design. With a large window that allows an abundance of sunshine, light granite counters throughout, two large sinks and plenty of storage, this galley is a Chef's dream. Additional features include a built-in Miele coffee espresso machine, counter top grill, Alto-Shaam smoker, and sizeable pantry just forward of the galley with tons of refrigeration and freezer space.


    Starboard to the galley is the main deck foyer with an intricate sole detail comprised of hand-chipped glass pieces and madrona wood inlays that are in turn arranged on a mirrored surface, lending depth and sparkle to the overall design. Spiral glass staircases lead to the main guest area on the lower deck and to the sky lounge on the bridge deck. The day head features a glass sink with toilet, and custom artwork on the walls.


    The full-beam master stateroom, located forward on the main deck, features an office to starboard, vanity, king size bed, sofa, and two huge walk-in closets with a washer/dryer. High-gloss painted surfaces and natural wood highlight the room, and the king-size bed is framed with silk bulkhead panels, headboards and accessories which soften the look and flow of the room. The ensuite head is adorned with hand chipped glass detail throughout, towel warmers, and granite counters inlaid with fiber optics that, when turned on, glow from beneath. The walk-in shower separates the "his" from "hers" side and boasts a waterfall feature that literally spills water out so gently and smoothly it's the envy of many a yacht owner.


    Located midship on the lower deck is a guest foyer with marble flooring and chipped glass detail, with four guest staterooms forward of the engine room. The two queen staterooms are located aft to port and starboard with plenty of space allowing for guests to walk around the beds, and the two twin staterooms are located forward with beds large enough to accommodate adults. All four staterooms boast spacious ensuite heads with large showers, ample counter space and intricate marble detail. Silk panels and high gloss painted wood are featured throughout the cabins.

    Upped Deck Salon

    Located on the bridge deck, the sky lounge features several custom features including reflective zodiac symbols on the shimmering overheads. The sky lounge also features a fully equipped bar with etched glass detail, and four large seats to accommodate guests. Plush carpet is located throughout, as well as an entertainment center with surround sound cinema and a 50" plasma TV. A large seating area and coffee table create an inviting space for guests to relax and enjoy themselves. There is a day head just forward of the sky lounge with a glass sink, marble floor and etched glass detail.

    Upper Deck

    Aft of the sky lounge is a covered deck with a large circular table for 10 to enjoy al fresco dining. To port and starboard aft are small, intimate seating areas for private occasions. A large wet bar with sink, refrigerator and ice maker are also featured to starboard of the dining table.


    Forward of the sky lounge is the pilot house, adorned in a soft light blue tone with beautiful teak flooring. Two captain's chairs, a settee and table offer ample space for crew and guests to enjoy cruising to new destinations. The Captain's cabin with ensuite head is located just off the bridge for easy access during long trips and for additional comfort and privacy from the crew area.


    Forward of the bridge is an oversized sun pad that will accommodate four or more adults. Speakers on either side of the sun pad allow guests to enjoy music while relaxing on the bow.


    The Sun deck is accessed midship starboard side via a wide staircase from the bridge deck. A sizable Jacuzzi hot tub easily sits 10 adults and the large bar with six barstools features a Rum Runner machine for constant frozen beverage service. There is ample guest seating, and two captains chairs are forward for steering from the top deck. One of the yacht's two tenders plus two PWC Seadoos are stored aft of the hard top. There is also a large chef's grill to starboard, and the davit is located port aft.


    The aft deck ofers a covered, spacious area for relaxing, dining and entertaining. With a large teak table with seating for 10 guests, and a fully equipped bar with three swivel seats, the aft deck is a great space for family and friends. Boarding the yacht can be done via port and starboard boarding gates, and the swim platform and/or bridge deck can both be accessed via a staircase located on the starboard side.


    The Swim Platform "Beach Club" is an enormous space ideal for lounging or used as a base for water sports activities. Two large umbrellas provide ample shade or can be easily removed for full sunshine. Access to the engine room is also located here.


    With beautiful fire engine red engines, gold-tone diamond plate, air conditioning, control room with office, and a sizable lazzerette with dive compressor, the engine room area is surely one-of-a-kind.


    The crew area is located forward of the main guest area, with three upper/lower cabins for up to eight crew members (including the double in the Captain's cabin). There is a sizable crew table with a small galley, pantry, TV, laundry room and access to the main guest area via a hidden door.
