CAPTAIN KIDS is a prime example of this very popular classic Post model.

The spacious cockpit is equipped with a live bait well in deck, generous fish/storage boxes, cockpit freezer and tackle cabinets.  The foredeck is easily accessed and has a 1200 lb capacity davit crane and tender cradle, ready for the owner’s choice of tender.  The large and well laid out command flybridge area features storage and seating.  The exterior areas of CAPTAIN KIDS are both practical, and conducive to your family’s outdoor boating interests. The engine and machinery spaces are easily accessed through a large entrance portal in the forward part of the cockpit. The machinery installations are well laid out for convenient maintenance or systems checks prior to departures or while underway.

The interior areas of the boat offer some of the most generous accommodations and storage space to be found in any vessel of her size and type. The salon features a large settee aft and to port and a big dinette forward to starboard. Both areas offer considerable useful storage beneath the seating. The panoramic windows allow for wonderful vistas and great natural light levels. The fully equipped galley forward to starboard and down two steps features a high gloss teak and holly deck and Corian countertops along with a complete compliment of appliances to make meal prep both easy and convenient. Continuing forward down the lower companionway, the master stateroom is to starboard with its own private head and separate shower. The master features a walk around island queen berth with hanging lockers, storage drawers, TV, and skylight hatch.

Opposite to port is the second guest cabin with upper/lower bunk berths and drawers . This stateroom also offers a private entrance to the guest head which is also accessible via a separate door from the companionway. Finally, all the way forward, is the VIP guest stateroom with a set of crossover berths featuring a double berth to starboard and a separate single above to port. Again, this VIP stateroom features hanging locker, storage drawers, TV, and a private entrance to the guest head as well as the Kenmore washer and dryer
