New Palm Beach Towers hardtop, US9SP Miya Epoch Teaser Reels, EZ2CY enclosure and new Garmin electronics package.
Bayliss Boatworks completed a new fully-refrigerated Mezzanine in 2008, with Gaggennau grill, Pipewelders sunshade, teak deck and covering boards.
Houdini has a three-stateroom/three-head layout which includes an owner's suite forward and guest suite amidship. Heads are finished with teak and holly flooring. Traditional varnished teak is used on all bulkheads, cabinets, rails and drawers. Instead of the traditional dinette, the boat's owner opted for an office suite that includes two large file drawers and a desk housing a computer and fax machine (both of which are routed to the boat's landline, cellular and satellite phone systems). A bookshelf, large chairs, bar stools and large granite bar, complete with the traditional brass kick bar, contribute to the antique look while the 46’’ Samsung , remote-control high/low table and pneumatic pop-up sofa bring a modern edge.
