Boarding via the amidships gate, the solid build of COWBOY is instantly felt: waist high gunwales with stainless steel handrails on the main deck and a Portuguese bridge forward. The bow sports a single serious plow anchor with a vertical foot-operated capstan.
The Aft Deck is laid out with bench seating and a large table. A portside ladder leads to the boat deck and there is a hatch that provides entry to the engine room. A stairway to starboard steps down to the fishing cockpit that was added after the build, making this original 68 footer a 74’ fishing trawler. The cockpit is outfitted with four fighting chairs, helm station, rod holders, bait freezer, bait well, cutting table and electric Jenn-Air grill.
The Main Salon is entered from the aft deck. A large U-shaped settee to starboard is upholstered in a caramel leather that complements the maple paneling, giving an inviting warmth. A custom topped table with a sportfish motif fronts the settee. To port are two dark brown chairs further adding to the warm ambiance, and a drop-down TV lies above the granite breakfast bar that serves as the division between salon and galley. Storage cabinetry abounds in both the salon and galley.
From the galley to starboard is a door to the exterior as well as stairways leading below deck and to the pilothouse.
The pilothouse is raised a few steps above the main deck. There are doors port and starboard to the Portuguese deck and a stairway to the boat deck and flybridge. Roomy with excellent visibility, the pilothouse is outfitted with full navigational equipment for deep-water voyages. Storage areas abound and there is ample seating with a helm chair for two and a large raised settee.
Electronics are repeated at the helm on the Flybridge. There is an abundance of storage on the flybridge: under the console, in port and starboard cabinets, as well as below the built-in U-shaped settee. A 22’ Twin Vee CAT tender is cradled on the boat deck and is raised and lowered with a davit. The tender is powered with two Suzuki 60 hp outboards.
COWBOY’s accommodations consist of three double cabins and two heads. The VIP cabin is forward with a double berth, drawer storage and hanging lockers. The Guest Cabin is just aft to port and has a double berth and twin Pullman berths. The VIP and guest cabin share a head with shower located portside. Aft of the head is an office complete with built-in desk.
The Master Suite is full-beam amidships. There is a centerline king berth, a built-in chest of drawers to port, night stands, a dressing table to starboard and four sets of hanging lockers. An en suite head with Jacuzzi tub is to starboard.
A utility room with laundry is entered from the master and a water-tight door amidships accesses the engine room from the utility room.2014 - Complete new paint job
