From aft:




The aft Owner’s Stateroom uses the full width of the yacht, and benefits from an abundance of natural light. Headroom is approximately 78”.  Overhead are two hatches, the port one of which doubles as an emergency escape route and is fitted with sockets to receive a stainless-steel ladder which is housed in the outboard wardrobe at the port forward corner of the stateroom.  Each of these hatches has a sliding insect screen and an opaque sliding screen.  Stylishly arranged on the deckhead around the hatch openings is a stout teak handrail.  The deckhead consists of solid removable flat panels with eggshell finish. The deckhead has six recessed lights and two ventilators each with insect screens.  Additionally, there are two sound speakers, and in each cockpit coaming there are two fixed windows each fitted with a spring loaded white roller blind.  Covering the windows are curtains with upper and lower curtain rails all running behind integral teak pelmets.  In the topsides port and starboard, beneath the coaming windows, is a pair of stainless steel opening hull windows with curtains fitted to upper and lower rails, again running within integral teak pelmets. 


The main feature in this cabin is the double berth which is 77” in length, 64” in width fitted with a padded headboard, which was re-covered in cream suede in 2011. The inner sprung mattress (new 2017) is laid on transverse wood slat springs, in two separate sets, one for each side of the berth. At the foot of the berth on the port side is a very large storage drawer. There is another very long drawer beneath the berth on the starboard side.  Just ahead of the berth is a teak veneer covered compression strut beneath the mizzen mast and a tension rod connected to the main mast standing backstay.  The tension rod has been cleverly adapted to serve as an extremely useful handrail, beautifully made and a styling feature. There are three LED lights in the deckhead above the head of the berth, and also its foot. Also in the deckhead are stainless steel loops to receive the lanyards of lee cloths to the side and centre of the double berth which can be used in a seaway.  Either side of the head of the berth is a reading light. 


To port of the head of the double berth is a large sideboard. Outboard are two bookshelves, each with integral retainers. A CD player is fitted to the forward end of the sideboard above two useful drawers. Beneath the forward of the two book cases are double cupboards.  Next forward is a glass fronted bookcase and beneath it is a dressing table which includes a storage recess at its outboard side, and in its centre a lift-up lid with securing stay which accesses a storage compartment.  The dressing table has a conventional kneehole at its centre and a circular stool on a stainless-steel strut.  The pedestals of the dressing table contain a locker aft and forward, three drawers with two halogen lights on the forward bulkhead. Adjacent, are double doors which access on the outboard side and a wardrobe with stainless steel escape ladder stored at the back.  Full length mirror on the door, which is fitted with a lockable stay.  The inboard door, again fitted with a lockable stay, has on its inner side an illustration of the yacht’s layout features. 


On the starboard side of the cabin running from the aft bulkhead to the head/shower compartment is a long and very comfortable settee.  At the fore end of the settee is a power socket and air conditioning control.  The settee can serve as a very useful extra berth and is fitted with a good lee cloth, the lanyards of which are secured to stainless steel rings in the deck head above. The cabin sole here, and in all other cabins, is teak and holly, some parts being fixed but with lift-up sole traps.  At the fore end of the owner’s stateroom there are three such traps and in the dry compartments beneath them is good space for storage.  At the sole perimeters, where the sole meets up-stands of other furniture, what would otherwise be a 90-degree sharp corner is beautifully radiused for easy cleaning.


At the fore end of the stateroom are two steps down to a lobby, the sole of which is at the same level as the aft passageway to the saloon.  There is a useful handrail to port. The central step lifts to reveal a stowage compartment beneath and the entire sole of the lobby lifts to access piping etc. To port in the lobby is a very useful large linen cupboard.


The head compartment is off the starboard forward corner of the cabin and on its partition within the stateroom is a clock.  The entrance door is fitted with two pegs for bathrobes or towels and with a lanyard arrangement to secure robes.  The head compartment has a generous 80” headroom and is finished with off white eggshell paint.  The compartment has a fixed coaming window with a white net curtain on rails and a long mirror on the coaming. 


At the outboard side are three cupboards, each fitted with a mirrored door.  The vanitory is a mottled green granite effect Corian and is fitted with a Fowler vitreous china wash hand basin with single lever controlled faucet. Adjacent are two storage brackets and a soap dish bracket. At the fore end of the vanitory is an opening trap which covers a bin for soiled linen.  There is one drawer in the vanitory and beneath it four good lockers. The electric head is by Mobiflush. Above the head is a tower rail with a further towel rail adjacent. The shower stall is a vertical cylinder with a useful handrail at its door opening and with a revolving stainless steel clear acrylic curved door.  Shower head by Hans Grohe. 




Next forward from the owner’s stateroom is the aft passageway which runs forward to the saloon.  At its aft end, on the starboard side, is a good linen cupboard. Three lift up sole traps access bilge / stowage areas including stowage for main entrance hatch washboards. 





To port and starboard of the aft end of the passageway are doors to the matched “mirror imaged” guest staterooms where headroom is 78”.  These staterooms are arranged with twin berths, each of 76” length and 31” width, one inboard and one outboard and with a bedside table between.  Alternatively, the inboard berth may be slid athwartships to join with the outboard berth to create a double.  In that mode, the bedside table is moved inboard.  Each berth is fitted with a headboard and a reading light.  As with the owner’s stateroom, the berths are fitted with athwartships sprung slats.  The outboard berth has two large drawers beneath it and the inboard berth has one drawer to its outboard side and a further drawer at its forward end.  When the berths are moved together to make a double, an access drawer to the inboard side of the inboard berth becomes available for use.


Above the head of the berths at the forward end of the stateroom is a suspended locker unit with, at its centre, a useful bookshelf.  Beneath is a CD player and there are two lockers each side of the bookshelf, though the outboard lockers are small due to internal trunking. Above the outboard berth is a long shelf and over its forward end, an air conditioning control.  Above the berth is a single opening port which is curtained with an integral teak upper and lower pelmet. The port may be shielded with a pull-down spring loaded white roller blind. In the deck head there are four lights and two sound speakers. Additional “plastic tube” mood lighting is provided within the window pelmets and behind long teak high level handrails which run the full length of the stateroom, one each side of the walkway between the berths and also beneath the forward suspended locker and above the outboard shelf.


In the deck head is a high recess leading up to an opening deck hatch.  In the lower part of this recess is a fixed coaming window with a curtain behind an integral pelmet.  Above is the coach roof hatch well which is fitted with a slide-out insect screen and a slide-out opaque screen.  On the aft bulkhead of the stateroom is a clock and on the aft outboard corner of the stateroom, a good wardrobe providing hanging space and two lower shelves. There is also a fire extinguisher and on the inboard side of the stayed door is a safety diagram of the yacht’s layout. The wardrobe is equipped with an automatic light. There are four lift-up sole traps in this stateroom revealing useful stowage compartments.  Note that all sole traps throughout the yacht are hinged and held shut by spring loaded lift rings.  Some of the traps are supported by gas struts.


At the aft end of the stateroom a door accesses the head/shower compartment where headroom is 77”. 


On the outboard side of the compartment is a mottled green granite effect Corian vanitory with a Fowler wash hand basin with single lever faucet above.  Adjacent are two storage brackets and a bracket for a soap dish. At its aft end, a lift-up trap accesses a compartment for soiled linen.  Above the vanitory are three large lockers all with mirrored doors.  Beneath the vanitory are two good lockers and a special recess to hold a toilet brush.  The electric head is by Lavaflush and above it is a control unit for a towel rail which has a further towel rail adjacent to it.  There is a lift-up trap in the compartment sole which accesses a storage space. On the inboard side of the door are two hooks for towels or robes and the inboard side of the compartment is a cylindrical shower generally identical to that within the owner’s stateroom compartment save that there is slightly less headroom in the guest stateroom shower. There is no handrail at the entrance, though the towel rail is so positioned as to serve as a handrail.





In the coach roof are two opening hatches, each fitted with an insect screen.  In the deck head are also nine recessed general lights and two LED picture lights.  Two very large coaming windows are fitted to either side with five windows forward. 


To the port side of the deck saloon on a plinth raised 8” above main sole level is a very comfortable dinette, shaped as an elongated ‘C’. In the centre of the dinette is a table which can serve in coffee table mode at a low level and folded in half, or be easily raised and folded out to become a full size dining table.  When used as a dining table, a tall director’s chair may be placed against the inboard side of the table to accommodate a sixth person. 


In the starboard aft corner of the saloon is a well-organized chart table which has a 2-person seat and a very sensible teak handrail running around its side and the seating area. 


The chart table lid opens to reveal a stowage compartment for charts and books etc. In the chart table pedestal there are three drawers generally for office use. Next forward is the inside control steering position with auto pilot steering position, , light switch controls, engine instruments, propeller pitch control etc. 


The leather for the saloon, the navigator’s chair and the desk have been re-leathered in cream (2011).


To the aft end of the saloon is a fixed window above the stairwell and the very substantial powered sliding accommodation entrance door, four steps up from the deck saloon sole.




From the deck saloon, three fan-radiused steps lead down to the lower saloon.  Good handrails to either side of the step well and to port continue all around the furniture unit and vertically up the port side of the door leading into the galley.  Having descended to the lower saloon, immediately ahead is a sideboard area providing a serving surface through a rectangular serving hatch with the galley.  This may be closed by a teak sliding door. Above this is stowage for china in sets for about nine diners.  Vertical teak handrails are provided to either side of the sideboard. To starboard a semi-circular dinette upholstered in cream leather against which is a square table serving as a coffee table in folded mode or alternatively when elevated by electric motor, and with four leaves extended and corner pieces inserted, become a large circular dining table. A director’s chair may be placed against the inboard side of the table to accommodate a seventh person. This table, the dinette seating and the serving hatch from the galley are all provided with protective covers on passage.


Outboard are two bookshelf compartments each of which has a removable retainer.  Adjacent to those shelves is a clock.  Above the dinette is an opening hull window within a curtained recess with integral upper and lower pelmets and plastic tube lighting, as with other windows.  In the forward corner of the stateroom above the dinette is a fixed reading lamp.  Generally distributed over the forward saloon are three recessed lights and six halogen lights. 


Above the forward end of the lower saloon are two medium size coachroof hatches each equipped with slide-out mosquito screens.  Just aft of the entrance into the galley, under the lower saloon sole is a freezer compartment, approx. 1m3 capacity.


To port of the door to the galley is the library which consists of a three-shelved open fronted teak bookcase on the forward bulkhead. Outboard of the bookcase is a speaker and an air conditioning control. Also storage for three remote control units. Above is an opening hull window in a curtained recess with plastic tube lighting outboard of the pelmet at the deckhead.  Next aft is a compartment for the TV. Teak double doors open and then slide neatly outboard and into the recesses to either side of the TV.  Next aft is a double-doored cupboard for crystal. Across the forward bulkhead beneath the library, outboard and then running inboard, are various doors. The inboard door beneath the library is for spirits, the next door conceals an ice-maker, the forward outboard door contains various plates and bowls. Next are three drawers. The aft door is to drinks refrigerator.


Finally, on the aft side of the compartment to port is the door to the engine room. This is cleverly arranged such that when the door is opened, a semi-circular section of cabin sole revolves with the door to move it out of harm’s way whilst the door is open




A sliding door closes off the galley and crew mess / accommodation area from the lower saloon.  To port in this compartment is a large blue leather covered C-shaped settee at a table, topped with mottled green granite Corian. This table usefully includes a stout handgrip along its inboard edge. The dinette sole is well raised from the general sole level of the galley. Above the port aft corner of the dinette is the 24V DC distribution power panel with circuit breaker and in the forward outboard corner the 220V AC distribution panel with circuit breakers. Between these two panels is a shelf and on the forward bulkhead, a further shelf. Above, on the forward bulkhead is a clock. Beneath the aft end seating is a washing machine and beneath the forward seat is a clothes dryer and in the deckhead above the dinette, is a DVD player and a CD player.  Above the dinette are four recessed lights, a closable ventilator and a sound speaker.


Across to starboard is the galley which has a mottled green granite effect Corian worktop. Beneath this worktop is a dishwasher and further along, set into the worktop are large and small stainless-steel sinks with galley style faucet. Outboard is a two-position ceramic hob and outboard a microwave. Beneath the ceramic hob is a trash draw. Next forward is a gimballed stainless-steel gas cooker which has oven, grill and four burners- new 2017. Outboard is a cupboard behind sliding glass doors. Forward of the cooker is a top-opening vegetable cooler. Above the cooker is an extractor hood.


All around the aft and outboard end of the galley is cupboard storage space for crew crockery, various galley tools and comprehensive set of stainless steel saucepans, frying pans etc.  On the forward bulkhead, is a refrigerator at the top and a freezer beneath.  Between the freezer and the cooker is a stack of four drawers for cooking implements etc. Overhead in the galley is a small opening hatch, a closable ventilator, two air fans and five recessed lights, with other lights beneath the suspended lockers and a sound speaker.  Headroom in the galley is 76”.





At the forward end of the galley is a lobby leading to the Captain’s cabin and crew cabin. A set of vertical teak steps is arranged as a fixed ladder to access the large forehatch immediately above. Adjacent is a required safety plan of the yacht and a crew muster list.


A door to starboard in the lobby accesses the Captain’s cabin which has headroom of 78”. Outboard are two berths. The upper berth is Pullman type, folding down as required, and generally is used at sea. Below that is a wider fixed berth which can be pulled out to be used as a double. The length of both upper and lower berths is 79”. Above the upper berth is a shelf and air fan. Outboard of the lower berth is a narrow shelf.


Forward of the berths is a wardrobe. In the deck head above is a speaker, a closable ventilator and three lights. There are separate reading lights above each berth and a telephone fitted to the aft bulkhead.  There is also an air fan adjacent to the lower berth. Beneath the lower berth are two long drawers. There are two coat hooks on the inboard partition wall of the cabin and overhead is a medium size hatch fitted with a mosquito screen and a slide out opaque screen. At the forward end of the cabin is a clock.


A door in the forward bulkhead opens to access the head/shower compartment in which headroom is 78”. 


There is a stainless-steel handrail adjacent to the shower, a teak handrail adjacent to the outboard vanitory unit of mottled green granite effect Corian with wash hand basin.  This has a single lever tap, two storage brackets and a bracket for a soap dish. Beneath the vanitory is a double doored locker and above it a double doored locker with mirrored doors. The sole in this compartment is white painted and there is a curtain which may be drawn completely around the shower area. Also two towel rails, a locker for towels etc. and a push button electric head. Above the head is an opening hatch with mosquito screen and opaque screen


From the lobby and beneath the forehatch a forward door accesses the crew cabin which has upper and lower fixed berths, length 79” and of good width.  Headroom is 78”.  It is notable that the heads of these crew cabin berths are aft which provides welcome privacy because it puts the head of the occupant behind the partition wall with the lobby, keeping light from the sleeper’s eyes if the door from the lobby is opened. 


Both upper and lower berths have a reading light and an air fan. Beneath the lower berth are two long drawers. On the central partition are two coat hooks and a clock and to port in the forward end of the cabin, a good wardrobe with automatic operating light. At the forward end of the cabin is a head/shower compartment which is identical to that of the Captain’s cabin with identical overhead hatch, light and ventilator arrangements.




Accessed via the forehatch and provided with a stainless-steel ladder.  This invaluable compartment stows some bagged sails, a large quantity of running rigging, etc.
