CHIMERA was designed and built to accommodate her current (and original) owners’ plans to live aboard for extended periods and safely cruise remote areas of the world in comfort and style. The Ted Hood Design Group created a handsome and powerful yacht with a versatile and roomy interior layout usually found on much larger yachts. Her sweeping decks and warm, inviting interior will appeal to any discriminating yachtsman.

As one comes aboard CHIMERA from the rear dinghy/swim platform, one cannot help but be impressed by her clean, elegant lines. Her flush aft decks lead forward each side to convenient side-entry points to the spacious covered cockpit area and separate helm cockpit. To port in the main cockpit is U-shaped seating with an expandable varnished teak dining table supplemented by two folding dining chairs inboard to accommodate 6-8 for dining. To starboard is an L-settee, removable coffee table and wet bar with both front-opening and top-opening drink fridges. The cockpit is protected by a permanent bimini with built-in lighting, dodger and removable enclosures all around. Flush stainless deck hatches, under-deck anchor systems and hidden sheet leads all help to create a clean, uncluttered deck. A large lazarette aft, multiple side deck lockers and deep forepeak provide tremendous storage capability.
CHIMERA sleeps eight in four owner and guest cabins aft, plus two ensuite crew cabins forward. The craftsmen at Alloy Yachts have proven their mettle with the beautiful interior highlighted by traditional varnished cherry joinerwork accented by fabric panels. Cabin soles are solid varnished maple with teak inlays in upper and lower salons, aft passageway and toilets, with fitted carpet in the aft cabins. Painted white grooved hull ceilings throughout and overhead in upper salon, with fabric overheads elsewhere. Tasteful fabrics and multiple lighting options with dimmers add to the interior ambience.
Pilothouse/ Upper Salon
The spacious pilothouse, accessed from the main cockpit via a wide companionway, offers incredible panoramic views in all directions and is a very comfortable area to spend time when cruising in inclement weather. A large dining area is to port with an expandable table and three large removable chairs that add seating capacity inboard. To starboard is a complete navigation and piloting station with multiple screens, communication equipment and other monitor screens to safely operate the vessel. An L-settee is aft to starboard, with two large chart drawers and a wet locker also provided.
Forward and down a few steps from the pilothouse is the main salon, which is open to above. Comfortable lounge seating is to port with a flat screen TV forward that drops down and opens up to the galley for casual serving or breakfast at the counter using two bar stools. To starboard is an additional L-settee aft and fully equipped bar forward with wine cooler, icemaker and sink, along with two leather bar stools. Numerous end tables and lockers provide exceptional customized storage for glasses, dinnerware and other items. A passageway leads aft and down a few steps to the guest accommodations.
Port Guest Cabin
The port guest cabin features twin berths with night table and full entertainment system access. There are numerous drawers, lockers and a large hanging locker for extended stays. A private toilet and shower is forward and, typical of all cabins, features a Corian vanity, electric toilet, heated towel bars, mirrors, multiple lighting options and separate stall shower.
Secondary Starboard Guest Cabin
Opposite the port guest cabin is a smaller cabin to starboard that features a double berth, small desk, hanging locker and complete entertainment access. This cabin shares the toilet and shower with the primary starboard guest cabin and is great for use by a nanny, additional guest or extra crew.
Primary Starboard Guest Cabin
The starboard guest cabin is identical to the port cabin, with the exception that a Pullman berth drops down from the overhead when needed. The toilet and shower, shared with nanny cabin, is larger and can also be accessed from the passageway to facilitate use as a day head.
The passageway continues aft to the owner’s suite which is truly magnificent for a yacht this size. A queen-sized berth is flanked by night stands each side with a large L-settee forward and a spacious vanity with seat to starboard. There is a large double hanging locker on each side of the stateroom and a private companionway leading to the aft deck. There is a large flat screen TV and fully independent entertainment system. The toilet area is quite large, with an oversized shower stall and twin sink vanities on each side.
Galley/ Crew Mess
Forward of the main salon is the galley area featuring a functional U-shaped design with generous countertops and storage lockers and the option of opening the bulkhead up to the lower salon. Vertical Sub-Zero refrigerator with twin drawers below and twin sub-sole freezer compartments with 18 cu. ft. of storage. There are also many large areas below the sole for storage of long-term supplies and provisions. To starboard is the crew mess with comfortable seating for four and access to all ship’s monitoring and entertainment equipment, as well as a laundry area aft. Two large hatches and two opening portholes provide excellent natural light and ventilation. In addition there is a large hatch for access directly to the foredeck.

CHIMERA has served her owners well, having fulfilled their dreams of exploring most of the world by water. She has methodically travelled throughout the northern and southern Pacific, including Australia, Micronesia, Japan, Alaska and the U.S. west coast and down through the Galapagos and around Cape Horn, continuing around the entire Atlantic basin, circumnavigating the U.K. and much of the Mediterranean.
CHIMERA has proven to be a perfect design for extended cruising in all climates, offering all the comforts of home for up to six additional guests. Her overall construction quality and engineering detail are second to none. She has never been chartered and has benefitted from continual upgrades and proactive maintenance.
