Vessel Walkthrough

This vessel represents a fully equipped 145' Christensen with several upgrades that have become a trademark of the Christensen yacht family.  She features an on-deck master stateroom with office, and four staterooms located midship on the lower deck, all with spacious ensuite heads. Luxurious high-gloss painted wood with recessed lighting is featured throughout. With a large aft deck, spacious sky lounge for entertaining and sun deck with Jacuzzi tub and bar, she is ideal for entertaining family and friends, or for charter. 

Main Salon
Entering the main salon through the aft deck, one quickly realizes the extensive amount of space for guests to relax and enjoy themselves in. An exquisite combination of wood, fabrics, stones and carpet are featured throughout. The seating area offers a large sofa, love seat and two chairs centered around a large coffee table of etched glass and marquetry. The AV entertainment system is complete with Crestron control and Lutron "One Touch" electrical lighting. To create an open concept feel, custom madrona wood columns flank a glass panel etched with shell detail; column tops feature metal palm fronds separating salon and dining area without blocking them off from each other. 

Dining Area
The formal dining area features a huge rectangular table custom made in Holland, which comfortably fits 10 adults in large, plush seats. Port and starboard, buffet cabinets offer ample storage for fine china, cutlery and tableware. A custom painting between the galley and dining area can be lowered to reveal a glass window allowing guests to choose to see through to the galley or for privacy during meals.

The galley, just forward of the dining area and to port, features light-tone marble and neutral creme cabinetry done in a tasteful country-French style decor, giving the galley a comfortable, inviting atmosphere. The custom hood above the stove features a custom light blue "under the sea" tile design. With a large window that allows an abundance of sunshine, light granite counters throughout, two large sinks and plenty of storage, this galley is a Chef's dream. Additional features include a built-in Miele coffee espresso machine, counter top grill, Alto-Shaam smoker, and sizeable pantry just forward of the galley with tons of refrigeration and freezer space.

Spiral glass staircases lead to the main guest area on the lower deck and to the sky lounge on the bridge deck. The day head features a glass sink with toilet, and custom artwork on the walls.

Master Stateroom
The full-beam master stateroom, located forward on the main deck, features an office to starboard, vanity, king size bed, sofa, and two huge walk-in closets with a washer/dryer. High-gloss painted surfaces and natural wood highlight the room, and the king-size bed is framed with silk bulkhead panels, headboards and accessories which soften the look and flow of the room. The ensuite head is adorned with hand chipped glass detail throughout, towel warmers, and granite counters inlaid with fiber optics that, when turned on, glow from beneath. The walk-in shower separates the "his" from "hers" side and boasts a waterfall feature that literally spills water out so gently and smoothly it's the envy of many a yacht owner.
