The pilot house has 2 Pompanette chairs, the one to starboard is for the helm. 2 bench seats are to aft and flank the companionway into the aft cabin. The aft cabin has a full bed that can be walked around. Drawers and one hanging locker flank the bed on all sides. Next to the companionway to port is a desk with shelves above and drawers below. To Starboard is the head with new electric toilets and a full separate shower. There is a small flat screen television mounted to the bulwark opposite the bed. Moving forward from the pilot house is a Galley to starboard and a dinette with benches to port. Past the next set of bulkheads is the forward cabin with 2 good sized over under bunks to port. Opposite the bunks, to starboard is a head (this one does not have a shower). Forward of the head is a large hanging locker with storage above. There is also drawers below the lower bunk.
BANYAN has a Detroit Diesel 6-71, naturally aspirated. She has a little over 1000 engine hours. She has an Allison M20R transmission. She gets roughly 1.2nm/ gal at 10kts.
The hull is solid fiberglass, as are the forward and aft cabins. The middle pilot house was added in the refit and it is marine plywood covered with fiberglass on oak frames. All interior cabinetry is marine plywood with varnished Mahogany trim. The hull is in solid condition. The entire cabin and pilot house were recently awlgripped. A large swim platform was added. Teak trim or drip edge was added to cabin. A storage box was added on top of the aft cabin to hold the propane and additional storage, it also serves as a nice seat. She is in well maintained condition.
BANYAN has an interesting history having served with the United States Navy aboard the aircraft carrier the Dwight D. Eisenhower. Because she was built for the navy, she is solid and reliable. Her design is the same design that has been used for Capain's Gigs for many years so her lines are more classic. She is certainly a work boat in design and aesthetic, but recent cosmetic upgrades have softened her and her refit has made her quite comfortable for cruising with 2-4 people. She would be wonderful for trips up and down the ICW or other coastal cruising.
She is currently moored in Red Brook Harbor on Cape Cod and available for viewing with an appointment.
