Description of layout from forwards:
Two full sized bunks to starboard with reading lights. Central fluorescent light. On the port side is a good seating area and wardrobe. Good storage drawers and under bunk stowage. Bowthruster in bilges. 240 volt supply from shore/generator. The cabin has a large hatch and electric dorade vent. There are two opening portholes in the cabin. This cabin was completely rebuilt during refit of 2003. 12/24 volt cigar lighter outlet.
To the starboard side a lavac manual toilet and a wash basin with hot and cold pressure water. Various storage areas and cupboards. Fluorescent ceiling light and red florescent night light. There is an opening hatch to the deck. The toilet drains into the black tank or directly out and the sink basin into the grey tank. There is a glass light prism in the headlinings.
Positioned on the port side the generous guest cabin contains one single upper and one lower double or single bunks both with reading lights. There is an electrical extraction fan to dorade outlet. 240 volts are available from shore/generator. There are two wardrobes in the cabin and substantial drawer/locker room with concealed valuables drawer. There is a large hatch and opening porthole in the cabin. There is a glass light prism in the headlining. FOLLOWING THE CURRENT REFIT, OUTSTANDING TO VARNISH ALL WOOD IN THE GUEST CABIN.
A large light and airy heads containing an electrical lavac toilet with manual backup. There is a built in wash basin with hot and cold pressurised supply set in a melamine surround with large mirror fronted storage cupboards. The floor is fully tiled and contains an American style shower that gravity empties to a grey tank. SHOWER CURRENTLY OUT OF COMMISSION DURING REFIT. TO BE REINSTATED. All cupboards are mirror fronted with an above tubular fluorescent light. A central fluorescent light and matching red fluorescent night light with integral switch. Easy access panel to the rear of the navigation panel and all instruments. There is one opening portlight into the heads. The toilet drains to the black tank or to the sea and the wash basin to the grey tank. An extractor fan is fitted in the headlining operated by a time delay switch and also a glass light prism to the deck.
The above cabins are connected to the saloon by a lower companionway which also contains a central fluorescent light and matching red night light.
Three steps take you up into the main saloon area. Behind the steps is access to various sensors and tanks. There is voluminous storage in the bilges under the cabin and companionway flooring. There is a glass light prism in the forward part of the companionway.
To the port side of the saloon is a six person table that folds in half if required and newly upholstered seating (2017) for six. In addition there are two stools that fit into the floor for extra seating when required – never used, as a bit wobbly. Behind the seating is a very large storage area which also contains the SSB and air conditioner. SSB not used by current owners. Air Conditioning never fully installed as current owners felt it was not needed, as Lady Polgara has very good through ventilation from various hatches and portholes. Built into the forward bulkhead is an electronic weather barograph which also monitors humidity and temperature. The saloon has a corner reading light hidden from the cockpit for night time reading and three fluorescent lights in the ceiling along with a matching red night light, plus 3 occasional lights. Several 240volt socketsare available supplied from the shore supply or generator. There are two opening hatches to the coach roof. There is a flat screen TV and DVD installed and a Brennan 500Gb stereo system.
To the starboard side is the navigation area. The saloon is built so that when seated there is a full view through the coach house windows. The yacht can be steered from the navigation position by means of either of the two Autohelms. The navigation area has a large chart table with chart storage under and a separate pens & bits storage. There is also a large storage for A4 size books of reference such as pilot books, log etc. Behind the nav seat is mounted the Furuno 400 watt SSB control. Mounted directly forward of the chart table is an extremely comprehensive navigation area.
As part of the current refit, we have been installing a new Raymarine system comprising a 9C MFD chart plotter mounted in the cockpit and a new fishfinder transducer (DST). This is interfaced to a new Quantum chirp Radome, AIS B and dual station ICOM VHF. The MFD wifi facility allows us to view and control the MFD from anywhere on the boat. As shown below for example. The old comprehensive B&G system remains independent of the Raymarine system but needs re-programming we think as some of the repeaters give wrong outputs. We have taken on board the previous owner’s mantra that there should be 2 of everything on the boat…
On the starboard side aft of the saloon and connecting is the extensively fitted and spacious galley. The galley contains a bar area forward. A Force 10 gas cooker with four rings, grill and oven. There is a twin basin sink unit with a number of water supplies. A hot and cold pressure supply, a stand by foot pump of fresh water (outstanding to be repaired), a pressure sea water supply via hand shower head (outstanding to be repaired), and a filtered freshwater supply from the pressure system that contains a clinical quality biological filter for fresh drinking water. There is also a liquid soap dispenser. The sinks may be switched to drain direct into the sea or into the grey tank. There are twin fans on the forward and aft bulkheads and the galley has very good natural ventilation. There are two fluorescent headlining lights and one matching red night light. In addition there are lights under the spacious wall cupboards and a spot light over the cooker. At the outboard edges of the worktop area are storage areas for jars and cooking utensils. On the inboard bulkhead is mounted a large microwave, grill and convection cooker supplied by 240 volts. At the forward end of the microwave is the automatic bilge system control and at the aft end internal bulkhead is a battery water level monitor (not in use), the engine room entrance door and a large food storage cupboard. On the out board side is a large fridge and freezer. The whole galley area continues the red and white internal colour scheme and the worktop is tiled in a mosaic of red and white. Two opening portlights enhance the light and airy feel to the galley and interior. There are also two large opening portlights into the cockpit area giving cross flow ventilation. (Following the ongoing refit, outstanding to varnish all wood in the galley area).
The engine room is accessed through a door opposite the sinks in the galley area and is spacious although with limited standing headroom. Good access is available to the engine, batteries, generator, pumps etc. At the entrance is a chest with eight drawers containing some of the many spare parts stored on the boat. Other spares are stored under the beds in each of the cabins and elsewhere. There is 240V and 12V lighting installed and 240V sockets.
The aft cabin is an extremely spacious owners’ accommodation. With one large wardrobe on each side and many storage areas there is a very spacious feel to the cabin. The headlining contains a large two way (forward or aft) opening Giot hatch in addition to four hull opening portlights and four opening coachroof side portlights. There is a centre line double bed with removable lee boards of King sized proportions – a double mattress topper makes this a very comfortable bed. In the forward bulkhead is fitted B & G system repeaters for Wind speed, Compass and wind direction as analogue instruments. Over the double bed is fitted adjustable intensity spot lights with oil lamps at each side of the bed. Generous bedside cupboard, drawer and top area. Substantial storage area under the bed along with the emergency rudder helm, rudder stock and drive gearboxes. All wardrobes contain automatic lighting. There are twin fluorescent lights in the headlining and two glass light prisms in the headlining.
The aft heads are spacious with a full shower unit with closing door. The shower unit and heads are tiled floors that drain directly into the grey tank. The shower is a thermostatically controller American standard shower with mixer control from the pressure water system. The wash basin is hot and cold pressure system with drain to the grey tank. The toilet is full macerator electric that can be drained directly to sea or to the black tank by a two way valve in the engine room. The colour is a light and airy red and white continuance of the internal red and white decor. The heads contain one opening portlight and a timer switched extractor fan in addition to a large portlight in the shower opening into the lower cockpit. Spacious cupboard storage with mirror doors and a tubular fluorescent light above the doors along with a glass light prism in the headlining and one fitted fluorescent lighting unit. In the aft inboard section of the heads is a large cupboard containing the automatic Phillips 12lbs washing machine that is fully plumbed into the boat.
