Vessel Walkthrough

CIPANGO offers a great amount of amenities for both private and charter use. The spacious and inviting Aft Deck has walk around side decks up to the seating and sun lounge forward.

The open plan Salon and Dining Salon creates a vast interior space. The raised Pilothouse offers the captain a commanding all weather Helm, a Day Head, larger than normal Galley and access to the Crew Cabins are further forward.

The Master and nearly identical VIP Cabin has a private stair forward of the Dining Salon. The Queen and Twin Staterooms are accessed by separate stair in the Aft Salon. A great Flybridge with separate guest seating areas is accessed via the Pilothouse.

Entering via a pneumatic sliding door, the spacious Salon extends well forward and includes the adjacent Dining Salon.
Immediately to starboard is a built in upholstered L shaped settee to seat six. Two small cherry and black galaxy granite tables lie in front of the sofa.
Next forward is the Salon's entertainment center. It includes:
Sony CD/DVD player DVP N5625P
Sony Hi Fi stereo VCR SLV N77
Sony digital audio/video control center STR DE895
Pioneer Elite 300 disc CD/DVD player DV F07
RSQ video CD player for Karaoke SR222

Above the entertainment center is a gilded twin fixture wall sconce set upon a mirrored
bulkhead. Next forward is a walk behind burl wood bar with a cube type refrigerator, Icerette icemaker, stainless bar sink, three cabinets, four drawers and a granite work surface.

To port starting forward is a burl wood topped buffet. Next aft is an L shaped free standing sofa facing aft to seat three or four. The upholstery matches that of the aft sofa and there is a matching small table as well.

Opposite the entertainment center are three burl wood drawers and a mirrored panel with gilded sconce light matches that to starboard. Next aft is a burl wood table with four loose chairs ideal for card games or cocktails.

Furthest aft is an L-shaped cabinet hiding the steps to the aft accommodations and the Engine Room. Facing the aft settee mounted on the cabinet is a 32" Sony LCD TV.
Overhead the Salon has a shallow tray type treatment with a mirrored border on vinyl
panels. Seventeen halogen mini spots are arranged over the sofas, bars and tables. Drapes and opaque blinds cover the fixed and opening windows. Burl wood valances are lit from behind. Full drapes cover the aft sliding door and fixed clear side panel.
Specially lit artwork in gilded frames, and custom woven carpet complete the high end décor of the Salon.

Dining Salon
Just forward but open to the Salon is the Dining Salon. The aforementioned buffet houses pegged dinnerware and padded glassware storage in three cabinet doors. Six more cabinets going forward house additional storage. The forward bulkhead has five more cabins with four additional to starboard. All of the storage cabinets have burl wood doors and tops. They completely surround the burl wood dining table that seats six to eight, offering storage not usually found on yachts of this size. The ceiling treatment has a deep tray with twelve halogen mini spots providing ample lighting.
Additionally the forward bulkhead is mirrored and has two gilded sconce lights mounted on the mirror.

To starboard from the Dining Salon is the yacht's main deck Companionway. From this area are nine curved steps to the Master and VIP Cabins, access to the Pilothouse, access to the large "Dog House" storage under the Pilothouse, access to the Day Head, the Galley and furthest forward the Crew Area.

The Yacht's Day Head has a marble sole that matches the marble vanity top with under mount china sink. There are two cabinets in the vanity and a Microphor toilet. Two large ornate mirrors make the area seem larger than it actually is.
