This is one of the best layouts Broward ever offered. On deck "day head" and Flush Deck design makes this yacht very easy to handle with pilothouse, galley, day head, salon, and aft deck on the same level. Huge fly bridge and full cockpit with generators beneath cockpit deck. Spiral stairs from aft deck to fly bridge. Ideal charter layout with crew forward, Pullman berth in one of the guest staterooms, and huge salon with all glass aft bulkhead, aft sitting areas and dining forward. 

There are two Guest Staterooms located aft, accessed via a stairwell from the aft starboard corner of the salon, each with twin lower berths and ensuite bath. The starboard stateroom has a Pullman berth.
The Maytag stacked washer & dryer and storage closets are accessed from the companionway between the aft guest staterooms and the master stateroom.

The Master Stateroom is forward of these guest staterooms and can be accessed from a stairway aft and starboard in the main salon. The stateroom is full beam, with king size bed and "his" and "hers" baths with adjoining Jacuzzi tub & shower. Also found are settee, vanity with mirror and stool, two large wardrobe closets, Mitsubishi 27" TV, Denon entertainment system, plenty of drawer and cabinet storage, night tables at either side of the bed with lamps. There is overhead lighting as well as under-berth lighting.

Salon/Dining Salon

Continuing forward through a glass wall and a sliding glass door, the very spacious Salon features a large U-shaped seating with cocktail table to port, and barrel chairs and end table opposite. Two built-in wine coolers hold 8-10 cases of white wine and 4 cases of red at just the right temperature. A full entertainment center features satellite TV, Flat Screen 36" LCD TV and Sony stereo system. A stairwell in the aft starboard corner leads below to two guest staterooms and the Master Suite. Further forward is the Dining Salon with oval table and upholstered chairs to comfortably seat 6-8 guests with mirrored forward bulkhead, custom overhead ceiling light treatment, and L-shaped buffet storage along the windows to port and separating the Salon from the Dining Salon.

The davits are just forward to port and starboard, with a dinghy and wave runner forward of the sun lounge. The radar arch with Bimini top protects the flybridge helm station.

Additional Features

    This one of a kind, very rare model Flush Deck model Broward was built extra heavy with thicker plating and additional framing to endure the waters of the Pacific and Alaska. She was built as the "Light Horse". Her hull remains in excellent condition to this day.

    Cosmetically the "Real Escape" is due for exterior paint. A wholesale paint quote from Lauderdale Marine Center is available for $124,000. (Half price) The exterior teak was stripped to bare wood and new varnish applied 2014. Once new paint coatings are applied this very spacious good looking yacht will continue to impress for many years to come. Current green hull shows no blistering but is fading. White topsides no longer hold a good shine and need to be repainted. The only blisters noted are around the aft deck window frames and will be corrected during a full paint job. Interior salon carpet is new in 2014 and the interior is in very good shape. The galley has nice granite counters and was updated. The lower stateroom are all very nice and require no refitting.

    • Exterior of vessel is due for full paint job. Some blisters noted at aft deck windows.
    • Vessel is due for new entertainment and navigational equipment. 
    • Below decks and staterooms in excellent condition
    • All systems and machinery very well maintained by full time Captain, vessel is cruise ready.
    • Huge fly bridge has room for 2 tenders, lots of storage, excellent lounging areas.
    • FB has control station aft 
    • Very large salon, dining salon and aft deck areas, all air conditioned.
    • Very economical, very long range cruise capabilities. 

Engine Room/Crew Quarters

To port is the Captain's Cabin with a 3/4 double berth and two single crew cabins are forward. There are two heads and showers for the crew as well as three TVs.

This engine room is more spacious than any other yacht this size due to the generator room being located aft. Both machinery area show excellent maintenance levels by her full time Captain of many years! This yacht can drop lines and head to the Bahamas with no issues.

One of only two built of this rare and very attractive Flush Deck design by Broward Marine. The day head and overall spacious layout is a big plus for large families or charter use. Both main engines were completely rebuilt in April 2015 at a cost of $100,000 before her trip North for the summer. Her bottom done every April at Jarrett Bay in Beaufort, NC. This yacht is always ready to cruise anywhere. She does however need a new paint job on the exterior and is due for electronics upgrades and toys. Mechanically this yacht is excellent. Both generators were replaced recently.  This is a very rare opportunity to purchase the "REAL ESCAPE"  mechanically ready for reliable cruising by her experienced long term Captain. The Captain has been aboard for 15 years and maintains the yacht ready to go at all times.  

This is the only "House Boat Style" Broward FDCMY on the market worldwide. Only two were ever built and we sold the other one twice. After this 94' receives a new paint job she will be a fabulous value and a very rare handsome classic yacht new owners could appreciate for many years. This is one of the most handsome looking classic yachts you will ever find with huge full length fly bridge, big aft deck, spirals stairs to huge enclosed aft deck, and large fishing cockpit. She makes and ideal live aboard or charter yacht.

Located at Jarrett Bay, Beaufort, NC as of May 8th, 2016.
