LYNLEY III is an exceptional yacht. Her high level of craftsmanship, engineering and ergonomics are a rarity only found in the finest of custom yachts. Exquisite joiner work and finish, a large, comfortable center cockpit arrangement and three double staterooms make her a pleasure to be aboard. A powerful, yet easily-managed rig and sail plan make her a delight to sail either on a distant passage or a lazy Sunday afternoon. Hull newly Awlgripped (2016) and mast overhauled and repainted (2016).
This striking yacht accommodates six in three staterooms. Her interior is finished in varnished American Cherry, fashioned in a unique contemporary style. Removable overheads, flush lights and cabinet hardware, along with a wide array of colorful fabrics, accentuate the stylish look below.
A large anchor locker at the bow is well suited for storing gear such as sails, fenders, dock lines and running rigging. This locker is completely isolated from the living quarters so that no odor or dampness can work its way aft.
A guest stateroom just aft of the anchor locker is furnished with a large V-berth with filler piece to provide two V-berths or a large double berth. The second guest stateroom is aft to port and has over/under berths. Both staterooms provide ample storage. They share a spacious head with stall shower, easily accessed from the salon for use as a day head.
The main salon is spacious and bright. It is furnished with two settees upholstered in blue leather, surrounding a beautifully varnished cherry table, two fixed armchairs and a built-in TV/DVD/Apple TV. Natural light and air is supplied by four fixed-hull ports, eight opening ports and two overhead hatches.
Aft to starboard of the main salon is the galley. A passageway to port leads past the nav station, the engine room, top-loading freezer and the bar, into the owner’s suite.
The aft master stateroom features an offset queen berth to starboard and an L-shaped settee to port. It is equipped with a built-in TV and ample storage in a large hanging locker, lockers, drawers and bookshelves. The ensuite head is forward to starboard and provides a full-sized stall shower.
The DC electrical system is 24 volts provided by 10 AGM batteries with a total capacity of 1,000 amp hours. There are separate 12-volt batteries for engine and generator. An emergency parallel switch allows the house batteries to start the main engine.
The AC electrical system is 120/240 volt, 50 or 60 cycle single phase. There is a 12 kW Westerbeke generator (2001) fitted with a water drop exhaust system and (2) 50-amp shore power outlets.
