While light, views and space are the hallmarks of this pilot saloon design, interior finishes of teak, beige suede-like upholstery, and easy to maintain countertops blend warmth, design, and practicality into welcoming spaces below decks. Cabinets and furniture in the saloon and the two staterooms exhibit fine craftsmanship. In additon, private heads in each stateroom create a suite life for you and your family or guests. The hot and cold pressure water system is served by two 58 gallon tanks plus a ten gallon water heater. Abundant hatches, opening ports, and dorades add ventilation. When daylight fades and you deploy the shades and curtains, an array of built-in halogen fixutures plus reading lamps over the berths keeps everything bright. And if the night's a bit chilly, an Espar diesel forced air heater will keep everyone warm and snug. An AM/FM/CD stereo with MP3 capability can provide entertainment day or night. Here's the layout, fore to aft:
FOREWARD STATEROOM: A wide-at-the-shoulders vee berth provides comfort for two. With 6'3" headroom, there's plenty of room to change clothes easily, stow gear in the hanging locker or cabinets, and rest or read on the portside cushioned seat. Two overhead hatches and two hullside ports provide natural light, not to mention ventilations from the hatches. Your crew will appreciate a private, bright, easily maintained head including a shower and all the necessities in a starboard compartment with its own overhead hatch.
SALOON/GALLEY: Here's where the pilot saloon design pays big dividends. To starboard, the U-shaped settee embraces a folding table that can be lowered to create a large double berth. Sit down at the settee and you are still enjoying the view through the large wrap-around window. Also to starboard are multiple cupboards and storage compartment forward, under and around the settee and, aft of the settee, a wet hanging locker (for your "oilskins" as the Wauquiez literature says). To port opposite the dinette and settee, the chef doesn't miss the view when busy in the "up" galley. It features a two-burner propane stove with oven, double stainless steel sink, front-opening refrigeration, counter space, and numerous cabinets and lockers. A complete forward facing navigation station with cushioned seating lies just aft of the galley.
AFT STATEROOM: With 6'2" headroom and an island berth, this is an amazingly spacious master suite for an aft cockpit yacht. There's great ventilation with four opening portlights, two onto the cockpit, two in the hullsides. A hanging locker and several storage areas swallow plenty of clothing and gear. The roomy adjoining head includes everything you would expect plus a separate shower.
The well-designed cockpit offers comforts and ease of operation for captain and crew whether under sail, under power, or relaxing on the hook. Teak seats and cabin sole are attractive, practical, and excellent footing. A central pedestal features a large-diameter wheel, compass, and single-lever engine control and serves. Four Andersen stainless-steel, self-tailing winches -- two 46.2 primaries near the skipper and two 40.2s on the cabin-top, one electric powered -- facilitate line handling, as does an array of sheetstoppers. Lockers and storage compartments to port and starboard accommodate lots of gear and a large liferaft storage space tucks into the transom. A unique sliding helm seat leads to the walk-through transom's hinged swim platform, which provides easy access to and from dock or dinghy. A Jason Iverson dodger and bimini provide shelter and shade from the elements and a cockpit shower can provide a refreshing al fresco rinse-off.(br> It's easy to get around the wide decks, encircled by stainless steel pushpit, pulpit, life lines and stanchions with midships gates for convenient dockside boarding. There are even properly placed padeyes for jacklines. Six stainless steel cleats with deck protecting chafing strips handle moorage and spring lines. At the foredeck, a new windlass has been installed with ground tackle including a #44 Rocna anchor, 200' of chain, 200' of line, bow roller, and a line locker plus a fender locker.
An anodized aluminum double spreader, deck-stepped mast is supported by stainless steel standing rigging. The inmast furler makes deploying, retrieving and reefing the main easy from the cockpit. A rigid vang supports the boom, which is also served by the cabin-top traveller. The 150% roller furling genoa is also readily controlled without going on deck. Lengthy tracks with sturdy cars aid headsail sheet trim.
Raymarine gear aboard includes a two E-80 chartplotters, Radar, ST-60 knot, depth, and wind instruments, and a 6001+ autopilot. There's a compass at the helm. Other items include an AM/FM/CD stereo and cell phone and XM satellite radio antennas. In addition to shorepower with numerous 110 volt outlets, the yacht's electrical system includes three house and one start battery, a battery charger, an 80 amp alternator, plus complete AC and DC breaker panels with a 12-volt outlet at the nav station. A watermaker completes the package so you can be free from the docks.
The low-hour 55 horsepower Volvo D2-55 spins a three-blade bronze prop on a 33 mm stainless steel shaft. Engine compartment insulation, muffling the diesel, is fire retardant foam. Two bilge pumps, one manual and one 4.5 gallon-per-minute 12-volt electric, protect from water instrusion.
