GENERAL COMMENTS ON ACCOMMODATIONS:

LET'S START WITH A LETTER FROM THE PERSON WHO KNOWS THE YACHT BETTER THAN ANYONE...THE CAPTAIN ON THE M/Y NEWS:

"I've been the Captain for the last 4 years and enjoyed working on the yacht.  Over the past few years we have done a lot of work on the yacht.  We've painted the hull, refinished the decks and cap rail, (installed) new equipment and performed maintenance on all systems.  I've enjoyed bringing up the yacht to its classic Denison Yacht standards.

The owners have many years on this yacht, mostly private use.  He also had many large parties on board up to 75 people.  When the yacht had large parties, it had more room than expected.  Between the Salon, Aft Deck, Flybridge, and Cockpit, we would have more than enough for large groups.  Even though we have not chartered the yacht, it wold be  an awesome charter yacht.  It has a well laid out galley, dining room, and the guest rooms are very spacious."

- Captain Steve Pulaski 

DESCRIPTION OF ACCOMMODATIONS:

HISTORY AND FUTURE:

NEWS was originally built with four (4) Staterooms, and was designed for corporate entertainment and major corporate events.  In fact, the "ALLIANCE," as she was formerly known, logged 100 events in New York City in one summer!

After the "ALLIANCE" was sold, the four (4) staterooms were converted to three, combining two (2) forward staterooms into one very large, full-width master stateroom, with "His and Hers" heads.

As Captain Pulaski states in his letter (above), NEWS would make an "awesome charter yacht."  The lower Accommodations can be re-configured into the original four (4) stateroom layout, and the large Dining Salon can be modified into an on-deck stateroom office/convertible den...making NEWS into a Five (5) stateroom Charter Yacht.

(NOTE:  DYS HAS PREPARED AN ADDENDUM - "CHARTERING NEWS")

DESCRIPTION OF ACCOMMODATIONS:

Main Deck - Exterior:

Classic Teak Decks cover the wide side walk-around decks and forward deck, as well as the aft deck and cockpit sole.

The FOREDECK has large built-in Port and Starboard aluminum deck boxes (with side cushions and covers), and, in addition, has been fitted with teak chairs and table.  The ground tackle is a large, dual hydraulic "Lofrans - Ercole B" Anchor Windlass.

After boarding through the amidships boarding gate, you walk aft along a wide walk-around, through the wing doors to a spacious, enclosed, and air conditioned AFT DECK.  There is a built-in curved settee, with custom end tables and a center-line table, with side chairs.  Port and starboard stairs lead down to the large cruising Cockpit.

The COCKPIT is fitted with a Rybovich "Marlin" chair, built-in storage cabinets - with sink and Bar-B-Q.  A starboard side transom door leads to a large swim platform, which allows guests easy access for the Tender and Jet Skis to enjoy scuba, fishing, and other water sports.  Two (2) 75 KW "Northern Lights" generators are installed under the Cockpit sole, to provide a separate generator space to reduce sound levels within the accommodation spaces.

Forward of the Aft Deck, and through dual sliding Stainless sliding doors, is the spacious MAIN SALON.  Large windows illuminate the beautiful Teak paneling, inlaid with lighter Burled Ash.  

 A Grand Piano anchors the port aft corner of the Salon, with several seating areas to encourage relaxation and/or casual conversation.  A large Teak and Burled Ash Breakfront & Wet Bar dominates the forward end of the MAIN SALON.

Following the starboard companionway past the forward end of the MAIN SALON, and passing the RAISED PILOT HOUSE as you proceed forward, is the large FORMAL DINING SALON, with seating for ten (10).

The forward bulkhead of the DINING SALON has a 15 foot long teak buffet crafted in teak with burled ash inlaid panels, a marble counter top, with lots of storage space for the dishes, silverware, and serving pieces...all set off with a large mirror, running the full length of the Buffet.  The aft bulkhead showcases a beautiful painting, and a movie screen for "Show and Tell" drops from the overhead at the port side windows.

The GALLEY is just forward of the DINING SALON through a swinging teak door, and is professionally-equipped to handle a large group for special events of up to 75 guests, or for up to ten (10) guests at a more intimate dinner party.  There is plenty of counter space, and a center island makes serving more efficient.  There is plenty of storage space in the cabinetry, and all the appliances are professional for serving the finest fare.

From the starboard side of GALLEY, and down the corner stairway is the large CREWS' QUARTERS, with room for up to five (5) in Crew.  A U-Shaped Crews' Mess is at the forward end of this space, with plenty of room for eating or just hanging out and relaxing.  Captain and Crew Staterooms line the Companionway that leads aft to the watertight door to the ENGINE ROOM.

The ENGINE ROOM is full-height, with easy access to the MTU12 V- 331 TC 90 Turbo-Charged Diesel Engines, as well as all of the other machinery.

The ACCOMMODATIONS can be accessed from a curved teak and plexiglass stairway at the midpoint of the MAIN SALON on the starboard side.  The Stairway winds down to a large octagonal foyer with a stunning ceiling recess.

The MASTER STATEROOM is directly forward, and features a full King-Size Berth  with an upholstered headboard, set off by a full-length mirror, flanked by custom sconces.  Twin full-height cedar-lined closets flank the Mater Berth, with built-in dressers on the port and starboard sides, including a large make-up vanity on the port side.  The "His and Hers" are located in the aft bulkhead of the Stateroom; "Hers" on the port side with a full 5 foot tub, and "His" on the starboard side with a large shower.  Both Heads have large vanities, with "Sherle Wagner" sinks and fixtures along the ship's sides.

The PORT GUEST STATEROOM features a Queen-Size Berth, a large cedar-lined closet, enough room for a large arm chair for reading or relaxing beneath another beautiful lighted sconce.  A full head, with shower and marble-topped vanity is aft through the rounded frame teak and mirror door.

The STARBOARD GUEST STATEROOM features Twin Berths separated by a removable night stand that allows the Twin Berths to form a full King-Sized berth.  This Stateroom has a full head, with a vanity and shower, as well as the corner upholstered chair, and a large cedar-lined closet.

The PILOT HOUSE is located in the center of the MAIN DECK, and has a comfortable raised bench seat facing the full array of instruments and electronics in a wrap-around console.  The Electronics have been updated recently with the latest 72-Mile Range Furuno "NSO-EVO II" Radar.

The FLYBRIDGE is reached by a comfortable stairway on the port side of the bench seat through a folding plexiglass hatch.  The Upper Helm Station duplicates all the essential Instrumentation and Electronics, with a custom "Stidd" Helm Chair, with the forward portion of the FLYBRIDGE covered in a anodized aluminum Hardtop.

A large aluminum Mast Island provides the base for the large aluminum radar mast, with spreaders supporting the electronics array.  A full Wet Bar with Refrigerator, Ice Maker, and lots of storage is under the mast Island.  The U-Shaped welded aluminum seating provides seating for over 15 guests, as well as storage underneath.

Aft of the covered seating area is a large, open Boat Deck with room for two (2) tenders, Jet Skiis, other "Toys," and life rafts.  The Tenders can be launched form either side with a 3,000 pound capacity telescoping "Marquipt" Crane.
