IMPOSSIBLE DREAM is one of two similar motor yachts built by Jongert in the mid 1980s.  Built with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, she is the heavier (though shallower draft) and larger in length, beam, and accommodation of the two. She underwent an extensive refit in 2007, which included a significant re-design of her interior spaces. Her galley was brought up from below decks and a fourth stateroom, additional head and media room added in the galley’s place. Additionally, the aft deck was extended four feet into the cockpit to allow for more space and private crew accommodations. IMPOSSIBLE DREAM’s engine room was gutted and rebuilt with all new equipment, rendering her in fully restored condition with an extremely strong structure and mechanics.

Entering the WHEELHOUSE one immediately is impressed by the magnificent joiner work of the solid teak paneling. Behind the steering wheel is a double bench seat which slides forward for the helmsman. On the portside is a curving stairway down to the guest accommodations. On the starboard side on the aft bulkhead is the communication center. The helmsman has very good visibility of control panels, radios, radars etc. To starboard of the wheelhouse is the large chart table with seat and ample storage for charts etc. On either side of the wheelhouse console are lockers for general storage. The sole is wide planked teak and holly. There is a ladder to the flybridge.

Aft of the wheelhouse is the well equipped galley. Between the galley and salon to port is a breakfast bar and stools.

Next aft is the stunning and richly appropriate sapele paneled salon: Sofa, table and chairs to port. The salon is beautifully illuminated with concealed cove lighting, concealed lighting in the curtain window pockets and six wall scones.

On the starboard side of the salon is a sapele inlaid bar with a sink underneath, liquor locker, wine locker and cupboards for glass storage. There is also a concealed plasma TV set and a complete entertainment center.

Windows on both sides of the salon can be lowered for excellent ventilation. The salon has a lovely ambience created by fine sapele woodwork.

In the aft port corner of the salon is a curving stairway to the OWNERS ACCOMODATIONS. Sapele paneling is carried through the stairway and on into the owner's suite. The Owner's suite is full width with a king size bed at the aft end of the stateroom. Above the headboard is concealed lighting for display of artwork. On either side are scones. There are three hanging closets with lots of cupboard and drawer storage. To starboard is a wall mounted TV with DVD player. To port is a lady's vanitywith stool. A two-seat settee adjoins the night table. Forward to starboard is a door entering the bathroom.

The OWNERS BATH is marble lined, including an oval Jacuzzi tub and toilet, bidet, shower and sink with gold finished fittings.

The GUEST QUARTERS are located forward and accessed from the wheelhouse down stairs to a foyer. Forward to port is a guest Stateroom with twin berths and a pullman, good drawer storage, vanity, stool and hanging closet. Outboard is a built-in TV/DVD and sound system. Forward is the guest bath with tiled circular shower, toilet and sink.

Opposite to starboard is the second Guest Stateroom with double bed, upper single berth, good drawer and hanging closet space. The ensuite bath is similar to that on the port side. Both staterooms are finished in hand rubbed teak paneling.

The VIP guest cabin is aft of the Foyer to starboard. There is a queen berth, night stand, ample stowage and hanging locker in this guest cabin. An ensuite head with a shower is attached. Opposite, with double doors, is a study/media room which also serves as a fourth guest cabin. The media room has a plasma TV and DVD, reading lights and a ‘U’ shaped settee.

The CREW CABIN is located aft and accessed from the cockpit. There is a queen berth with a night stand, hanging locker, bench seat, fridge, freezer and microwave; head, sink and shower.

The very large AFT DECK is reached either by port and starboard wing doors, double sliding salon doors made of French hardwood with glass panes, stairs from the cockpit or stairs from the flybridge deck. On the aft deck is a large custom table that can easily seat twelve people. There are also hose bibs and fire fighting bibs. Adjacent to the salon doors on each sides are cabinets. The port side cabinet houses a trash compactor, and storage. The starboard side houses a fridge for drinks.
The AFT COCKPIT is surrounded by a 10” wide teak cap rail. It has a teak deck, stowage lockers and a 3' teak swim platform with stainless steel boarding ladder.

The FOREDECK is teak with teak seats and general storage. Forward is a double anchor winch with a built-in wash down. Below is a large chain/storage locker. Two hatches are located on the port side deck which opens to large storage lockers which holds two spare props. The forward locker also holds propane storage. Both lockers drain over board.

The exceptionally large FLYBRIDGE has a bimini over the helm and a double arch mast and twin helm seats. Aft of the helm seats is a couch, two chairs and a table. To port and starboard aft are padded areas for sunbathing. Further aft are stairs to the aft deck and tender stowage for a 17’ tender and jetski.
