A LOT of boat for the money! Feeling much larger inside and out than her length suggests, this US-built family cruiser features a striking "modernist" all-white interior -- most surfaces are easy-to-maintain Formica, thus still crisp and sharp-looking to this day. Boathouse-kept, so exterior also in great condition. Unexpected economy even up on-plane, cruising at 14-15 knots: only 10gph -- no, not from diesels, but from modern (1996) fuel-injected gas engines, with under 300 hours on top-to-bottom overhauls. Up to 19 knots available, to get out of the way of a storm... Sleeps up to eight PLUS two grand-kids; in two staterooms with en-suite heads (each with separate showers!) as well as on-dinette and on any hide-a-bed sofa you'd choose to install. Generator or inverter for underway 110vAC power. Clean, tidy engine-room; dry bilges... definitely an "oldie-but-goodie" from the early years of robust (overbuilt) fiberglass construction.

This imposing Aft-Cabin MotorYacht is actually quite easy to board, as the carpeted swim-platform is clear from dinghy-obstruction; any dinghy you wish to add hangs well-aft on Snap-davits, giving wide path to the centerline ladder up to long open aft-deck. This deck has faux-teak pattern on the fiberglass, and is also carpeted in modern Berber-texture (edge-bound). Or put down the removable ladder to dock, from either side-gate thru aft-deck's surrounding plexiglass windbreak-panels, which are attached to the teak-capped SSTL safety railing. This railing extends all the way forward to sweep around the graceful curve of the prow, teak-capped most of the way.
Foredeck is also an entertaining area, as the trunk-cabin incorporates seating molded into its forward end. Unique very large centerline chock takes the place of bowsprit/anchor-platform, keeping mooring length shorter. Husky vertical-shaft windlass brings up the large but lightweight aluminum Fortress (Danforth-pattern) anchor -- effortlessly. Brackets hold fabric-covered large-diameter fenders.
It's true stairs (not a ladder) from aft-deck to the flybridge, which seats three abreast on individual bench-helmseats, richly upholstered in thick white vinyl. Yet another wide bench-seat behind this row... Radome is on stout square pole to port, easily pivoted down for low-headroom undercover moorages. Navigation electronics reside inside a wide "garage"; flip-up door keeps them dry. All engine gages are newer, to complement the recently-installed replacement engines. Big under-cowl storage lockers with wide-opening doors!
Go down similar stairs from aft-deck into the bright open salon, perceived as even larger since it flows without break right into the "down" Dinette and "down" Galley; only a safety railing separates these two levels. Salon is "un-constructed"; that is, absent built-in furniture, so can be outfitted as desired. Items that will stay aboard include velour-upholstered swivel rocker chair; wood end-tables with storage (one has built-in stereo); and large flat-screen TV attached to starboard-side wall, flanked by stereo speakers. Light floods in thru aluminum-framed windows with screened sliders at both forward and aft ends, as well as thru the three-panel windshield (recently re-glazed with tinted glass), whose center panel tilts open. Lower helm nestles into the forward starboard corner of the salon, taking up very little living-space.
Down stairs into the Dinette area, directly across from the Galley - both well-lit by more long aluminum-framed slider-windows, obviously not quite as tall as the Salon windows. Dinette breaks down into full double berth; has convenient long shelf under the side-deck below the window; cavernous storage under the dark-green vinyl seating, with patterned seatbacks for a bit of variety. Galley has electric stove with oven, over-stove hood with filtered fan, tall Norcold fridge with separate-door freezer, microwave, and large single-basin sink. Flooring is easy-clean wood-pattern laminate.
What's striking in this interior is how bright it is: nearly all surfaces (bulkheads, walls, doors, cabinet-fronts) are finished in easy-care -- and essentially un-blemished -- white Formica. With just a bit of wood-trim, the effect is rather like modern-architecture minimalist, almost "bauhaus"... complemented by the subdued grey Berber carpeting. Overhead is covered in white vinyl; clean -- clearly a non-smoker's boat so far. Same decor extends into the two staterooms. LED lighting at many of the fixtures, for efficiency and frosty-cool appearance.
Enter forepeak stateroom thru privacy door; to port are over-under berths (dark-green vinyl upholstery), en-suite head with separate showerstall shares starboard side with a large closet. Stateroom feels roomy , as it extends forward ahead of berths, to incorporate emergency egress thru foredeck hatch.
Enter the aft master stateroom thru privacy door at corner of salon; entryway stairs pass by a long sliding-door closet. Hullside to starboard, there's two long but narrow berths arranged stairstep-fashion, with yet more storage under the upper berth -- call these the "grand-kids' berths", or a great place to just throw "stuff" -- across from the Queen berth to port. Another deep hanging closet on the forward bulkhead (hidden inside is one entry-door to the engine-room - other entry is under the galley stairs) and adjacent to this closet is the en-suite head with large lighted make-up mirror, sink in counter, and another shower-stall!
This layout would make an excellent live-aboard -- and never any diesel-smell...
