Accommodations & Layout
The interior of the Transpac 49 is beautifully finished in natural burmese teak, solid laid teak and holly cabin sole and very well-constructed interior makes you feel as though you are on a sailing ship of old and not a production built private yacht. The large windows and ample ventilation let in an abundance of natural light and ventilation making the interior warm and cozy
The three private cabins (This is a true tri-cabin layout) and permanent pilot berths provide four separate sleeping areas for maximum privacy. She sleeps 9 owners and guests in three staterooms, plus two in the dinette and one settee berth for a total of nine berths. The master stateroom is Aft with head, separate stall shower and large bed. This boat is also very unique in that she features a large walk in engine room with work Beginning in the forward stateroom that features a V-berth with storage under, large hanging locker, bookshelves, opening ports for good ventilation; going back the second guest stateroom to port features upper/lower berths in the port with an abundance of storage.;
The salon has a L shaped dinette to port, wine locker and across to starboard is an additional oversize settee. The u shaped galley is aft and to port and the giant size refrigerator/freezer is to starboard. The passageway has the nav station to starboard and engine room access to port. The master stateroom has a large athwart ship double berth with spacious lockers, drawers and three transom windows (lockers and bookshelf above) which provide an interesting view while underway; she also boast an ensuite head with separate shower stall, and cabinets. The walk in, stand up engine room is accessed through the aft head and also features a complete work station including vice.
The galley has plenty of surface area, a double sink and a fridge and freezer so efficient and well insulated they run off the batteries.
The topside has just as much room to move around, large flush deck provides an amazing amount of out door living area. Behind the cockpit are roomy lockers, a BBQ grill.

With a 3 stateroom layout, galley to port amidships, large saloon, and stand up engine room with work bench,
At 49' long, she is a large boat. However, she is rigged to be sailed short-handed. Roller furlings are used throughout with all lines leading to the cockpit. One of the first comments we hear when a person steps below is "wow, there is so much room". The wide beam provides two important design elements: lots of room below and stability. There is minimum headroom of 6' 3" throughout.
This boat has been extensively gone through and up dated over the last 4 years. Over $60,000 has been spent on her renewing her various systems, no expense was spared in the refurbishment. (All the receipts are available)
