As you enter the salon, you'll find a dual-functioning helm and saloon space wrapped in the richness of custom book-matched Ropey cherry veneer and trim accents. As an acccent wood which is both luxurious and durable the Sapele is matched with maple on the floors with a satin finish throughout. Sapele lumber runners are also used in the headliner to accent the cabin. Two Stidd helm chairs with a matching electronics dash wrap are the foundation for the interior driving station with pod joystick controls.
Aft, you will find a sofa with dry storage underneath and in the aft corner, the Jarrett Bay signature bucket seat. Down below you'll find a well-appointed galley with hidden Sub-Zero refrigerator units, a hidden microwave and maximized storage space and cabinetry.
Built with Canyon overnighters and extended Caribbean cruising in mind, the Jarrett Bay 43 HTX comfortably sleeps four in a forward queen berth stateroom and a side-by-side bunk room beneath saloon. This unique bunk room bonus space is afforded due to the smaller footprint needed for the engine room thanks to the compact pod drives. The queen bed lifts for custom rod storage, and hanging and storage lockers are found centrally and on the outboard hull sides. If you notice, you even have the luxury of a sitting area in the master.
Keeping things custom all the way into the head, here you will find a hand-carved, high-gloss Sapele sink and matching counter top, custom wallpaper and a teak trimmed, seamless glass shower entrance.
Look down after dusk, and you’ll find your own aquarium forming around custom underwater transom LED lights. Walk forward safely using a hidden finger rail on the cabin sides to access the custom anchor pulpit and windlass, and look back at the wide-view wrap-around windows with wipers for maximum visibility in unfavorable conditions. Look up to find FLIR technology, custom LED tower lights, pod joystick controls, teaser reel remote, and actuated storage drawers all conveniently accessible in the Palm Beach buggy top.
Wrapping it all up in a shiny Alexseal Kingston Grey coated hull, a Josh Everett Nautical Designs hand-painted transom, and topped off with a custom buggy top, the “Gregarious” is ready to share the quality, passion and dedication of Jarrett Bay’s custom Carolina construction with all she may encounter.
With an intent focus on the business-end of this Jarrett Bay, the owner & captain’s cockpit order definitely did not fall short on any detail. Ensuring access to the twin 600hp Cummins QSC motors and Zeus pod drives did not encroach on deck space, the 43HTX’s hydraulic cockpit decklift delivers in both form & state-of-the-art function. Making the most out of all spaces, the mezzanine not only serves as a comfort station complete with an ice maker and drink coolers, it also provides bait storage and functions as an aft helm station with pod joystick controls in a recessed compartment . Also serving double-duty is the stern fishbox that doubles as a live well. Keeping the aft deck space clear of clutter from head to toe, the electric teaser reels are flush mounted into the cabin overhang, and a low-footprint Release Marine Battle Saddle perfectly complements Jarrett Bay’s finely crafted teak cockpit accents, as well as the custom metal, CNC-cut Jarrett Bay logo drain covers.

"Gregarious" features a completely enclosed, air conditioned house with lower helm station. Entering the salon, just off the mezzanine, is simplified by an electronically operated door. Inside you'll find the interior built from Ropey Cherry. The floors throughout the salon, galley and head are made of Africian Sapele with maple border strips. While the focal point of the salon is the inside helm supported by twin Stidd helmchairs, aft you'll also find a luxurious lounge to port which is directly adjacent to the entertainment center. And just aft of the TV, a built in barrel chair, just inside the salon door.
