Full Specifications

Walk Through
The interior is varnished solid mahogany, with the exception of the cabin sole which is teak and holly veneer. The yacht was custom designed and built for a couple to circumnavigate in comfort. Headroom is approximately 6.5 feet (2 meters). To port aft is the owner’s cabin with a wide double berth with custom inner spring mattress, storage underneath, a built-in chart storage drawer and multiple cabinets with ample storage. To starboard aft, is a large storage room/tool room/workshop with a bench vise, cabinets, lockers, and bins for parts, along with a permanently attached toolbox w/ sliding drawers. Easy access to the Spectra watermaker, Espar heater, Racor fuel filters, and hydraulic autopilot are located in this cabin.

Just aft of the Nav Station and to starboard of the companionway ladder are two very large lockers. The forward one is shelved, the aft locker is a hanging locker for weathers/gear.

Forward of the galley and Nav Station is the main salon. To port is an L-shaped settee with large storage behind and underneath. Settee makes into a berth with lee cloth. The mahogany table is small to permit easy seating, as well as an extended section with insert to convert to a full table. Above the settee seat backs are lockers with doors for storage, TV cabinet (no TV installed) and liquor locker. To starboard are two leather Captains chairs which swivel and recline, with side stands, CD holder, storage cabinets, chart storage rack and bookshelves above. There are two Bose speakers and a Sony Tuner/CD player with a 10 CD Disc Changer.

To port forward of the salon is a large head with sink, storage below and above the counter, mirror, a Vacuflush electric toilet by Sealand, and a large separate shower stall with curtain. The head is a custom-built modular fiberglass unit, making it very efficient and easy to use and keep clean. The shower has a high threshold with a built-in seat, so it is easy to shower and not get any water in the rest of the head. Hot and cold water is available at both the sink and shower. The shower faucet has an FM Mattsson thermostatic/pressure balanced mixing valve, which keeps the water temperature constant while showering, and avoids the risk of intermittent hot and cold water pulses. The Vacuflush toilet is discharged into a separate holding tank, which is installed underneath the V-Berth forward. The holding tank is discharged either overboard via an electric pump installed in the head area, or via on-deck pump-out.

Across from the head to starboard are two large lockers with vented doors, one is shelved and the other is a hanging locker.

Forward of the head and lockers is the V-berth area with removable center piece, storage underneath on both sides, and storage cabinets and bookshelves above on both sides. The cabin sides are lined with varnished slating. There is a storage area with countertop, and doored storage cabinets above and below.

Just forward of the V-Berth is access to the chain locker

Galley
To port just forward of the companionway ladder is a C-shaped galley
• Custom dish cabinet complete with dishware
• Built-in microwave
• Well-insulated top loading refrigeration compartment
• Counter level storage cabinets
• Two large, deep storage bins under counter surface accessed from the top
• 9 large drawers for storage
• Double stainless-steel sinks
• Doors on both sides of galley counter for access to storage area under sinks
• Sinks have hot/cold pressure water via Shurflo pump. All water is filtered through a Shurflo filter
• Drinking water – there is a separate tap connected to a General Ecology Ultrafine water filter. In order to prolong the life of the Ultrafine filter, drinking water goes through the Shurflo filter first and then to the Ultrafine.
• Sprayer hose/nozzle at sink for rinsing dishes
• Vent hoses for water tanks are located under the sink to prevent outside contamination
• Force 10 Propane Galley Range with black glass door – 4 burner with oven and broiler
• Storage bin under galley range for pots and pans
• Bomar hatch over galley range
• Xantex Propane Control and Alarm

• Compass
• Barometer
• Hella fan
• Paperwork storage rack
• 12 volt outlet
• Control for Espar heater (new Espar 2018)
• Red/white overhead light

Ventilation
There are two opening ports in both aft cabins, and two more on both sides of the companionway. There are hatches above the galley, above the forward end of the settee and the Captain’s chairs, in the head, and a large hatch over the V-berth. In addition, there are dorade vents above the galley and the Nav. Station, and solar vents in the shower and V-berth. There are 7 Hella two speed fans throughout the yacht in all areas. “Oceanair” Shades cover the portlights in the cabin and have reflective surfaces helping to keep the sun and heat out. There is layered foam insulation between the interior and the hull down to the waterline. Accordingly, the cabin is very well ventilated and insulated. In colder climates, cabin is heated with installed radiator/fans and Espar diesel heater.

Hull & Deck
The hull is 5086 alloy. The design is a modified fin keel with skeg hung rudder. The rudder is fiberglass with a 2-inch stainless steel rudder shaft. Teak on cockpit deck and seats, remainder of deck is painted with nonskid Awlgrip. The deck and hull were sandblasted from the waterline up and repainted with Awlgrip in 2020/21. The cockpit is spacious with 6.5’ long seats with a large lazarette aft beneath the helm seat. New cockpit cushions were made in 2021. Anchor winch (new 2021) is below decks and feeds into chain locker. The mast is keel stepped. The large hard dodger is bolted on and can be removed for shipping overland.

In 2007, the skeg shoe was removed and a new bushing installed. In December 2008, the rudder was removed and inspected, all fairing was removed and the rudder was re-glassed by Brin Wilson Yachts in New Zealand. External aluminum anodes (5) were replaced in spring 2019, shaft and prop zincs replaced twice a year or as needed. 2 coats bottom paint added spring 2021.
