The 1999 CUSTOM COLD MOLDED 62 CATCRAFT "MEGALODON" is a must see. Her name says it all as she is an absolute beast of a vessel. A Malcolm Tenant design, she was build built by Orin Byard on the Outer Banks of NC. This 62 CATCRAFT is a true custom cold molded build that has been refit, re powered and painted all in the last several years.

Her rudders and props are protected above the keel line, and the engines have V-drives allowing complete maintenance accessibility. Extensive storage spaces for diving equipment, personal items, books, charts, galley and other equipment both inside and in deck lockers. Joinery throughout the vessel is of high quality Honduras mahogany and birch with a matte finish. Simply put, the 1999 CUSTOM COLD MOLDED 62 CATCRAFT "MEGALODON" is a vessel like no other.

VESSEL WALK THROUGH
Main deck includes a spacious aft deck including work bench, an outside dining area, a salon with open galley, formal dining areas port and starboard and an entertainment center.
The large owner's cabin occupies the entire starboard hull with queen-sized berth forward and book cases mounted on outer hull. Next aft is vanity, and aft is expansive head and stall shower.
Below decks on the port side are two guest cabins, with vanity, a shared head and stall shower and book cases mounted on outer hull.
Upon entering the yacht from the aft deck, the nearly 27' beam becomes readily apparent. Even with ample walk-around side decks, one feels as if he/she is aboard a much larger yacht. The main cabin has twelve opening windows which provide excellent natural ventilation and nearly 360 degree visibility. Immediately on the left upon entering the salon is the staircase which is the primary access to the pilothouse.
Port and starboard forward are two dinettes with plenty of seating. To starboard on entering is a large hanging locker and forward of that an entertainment cabinet housing a 32” Sony TV, 10 cartridge CD unit, DVD player and Sirius receiver. Below is a multi-drawer cabinet holding an easily-accessed selection of tools.
- DVD player

- Jensen 10-Disc CD unit

SALON AND GALLEY
Occupying the port side of the salon and just forward of, but open to the galley, is one dining area that seats six. Forward and to starboard is another dining area seating four. The entire salon/ dining/ galley area is surrounded by opening windows which provide unrivaled natural ventilation and light to the area. In addition the area is fully air conditioned. Galley with extensive food and utensil storage space also has a large double bowl sink, top load refrigerator and freezer, three burner propane stove with oven, and a propane gas detection unit. There is also an exhaust fan for ventilation.
Accessed from the salon companionway to starboard, is the master cabin featuring an athwartship queen island berth forward in the hull with overhead opening hatch and dual fans and reading lights. Lockers are located below the berth and forward is a cedar-lined, very large hanging locker.
The master head is en suite aft in the hull. On the inboard side is the vanity. The shower has a hand-held or wall mountable shower fixture, light and exhaust fan. The toilet is an electric deluxe Jabsco.
PORT FORWARD GUEST STATEROOM
