Walkthrough

Boarding THE VOYAGER is from the port or starboard amidship boarding gates via a Marquipt Tide Ride ladder or vertical ladder.  One can go aft through the side decks to the Aft Deck or forward to the Portuguese bridge and Foredeck.  Entrances to the cabin are by the Wheelhouse doors or Aft Deck wing doors.

The Aft Deck is fully enclosed with built in seating, a table, a bar and a centerline door to the Cockpit.  The Salon which is next forward is open to the Aft Deck with the original doors and windows removed.

The Salon has an L shaped settee to port with the yacht’s entertainment system and open bookshelves to starboard.  The Galley is open and next forward.  Steps in the Salon lead to the private Master Cabin and Engine Room area. 

The Pilothouse is large and inviting with seating and all equipment a long distance cruiser requires. 

Steps to starboard lead to two Guest Cabins, a common area with laundry and the forward Crew or Guest Cabin.

Aft Deck

The Aft Deck is fully enclosed and quite spacious.  The deck is oiled teak.  Two deep seats port and starboard offer ample seating.  The port one has a teak drop leaf hi-lo table in front.  Lucite windows and hinged screen doors are both port and starboard.  The aft and sides are enclosed with glass and plexiglass with interior Sunbrella light filtering sunshades.

To starboard is a self controlled Cruisair AC unit under the five tread ladder to the Boat Deck.  Next inboard is a newer Raritan stainless steel icemaker built into a cabinet. 

To port is a bar unit with fitted barware storage.

Overhead is a teak rod rack for eight rods (rods excluded).

Centerline aft is a hinged door and fold down screen giving access to the Cockpit.

Also in this area are overhead lights and stereo speakers.

Salon

Outboard of the sofa are three large windows with semi opaque pull down shades.  In front of the sofa is a large drop leaf hi-lo teak table. 

The forward corner of the sofa has a matching table lamp.

To starboard upon entering the Salon is a cabinet housing the entertainment equipment consisting of a 48” Samsung LCD TV, a Samsung Blue Ray player and an Audiosource amplifier.  This equipment can be hidden by a fold away cabinet door.  This area also has open shelving forward.  The TV area forms the stairwell access the Master Cabin.

Additional open shelving is to starboard under the windows and shades matching those to port.

Remarks

THE VOYAGER is a true blue water cruiser with extensive West Coast cruising, a Panama Canal passage and cruising on the East Coast form Maine to the Caribbean. 

Built as Starfire with a length of 60’ she was extended to 68’ by a very useful Cockpit addition.  Some of her features are updated electronics, updated stainless steel Galley, four staterooms with four Heads, newer engines, generators, wiring and plumbing. 

Being a Stephens she carries both appealing lines and a great pedigree from the West Coast’s most highly regarded custom yacht builder.

Exclusions

While every effort was made to list all pertinent included equipment aboard THE VOYAGER, there are some personal belongings aboard.  Prospective purchasers should assume any item not specifically mentioned herein will not convey at closing.
