Spacious for its size, this yacht comfortably sleeps four adults in two private staterooms plus two at a convertible dinette for a total of six berths. The interior also includes two private head compartments (one with a shower and the other with a stall shower/bath tub), a full service galley, large dinette and a comfortable salon. There is also a lower helm station with side-access door. The engine compartment is accessed through removable deck hatches in the salon sole, offering generous stand-up access. Outdoor living is equally accommodating with a full-width hardtop-covered aft deck, flying bridge with custom-fabricated hardtop, full enclosure and seating for a small crowd. The foredeck is easily accessible through aft deck wing doors on either side of the vessel and forward along side-walks with well-placed handholds. There is an aft boarding/swim platform with hot/cold hand-held shower. Another included option is a 10' Trinka hard dinghy w/ Honda outboard with a sailing and rowing package....Dinghy is placed and stored on top of the aft deck's hardtop by way of a davit and custom pipe-welded aluminum chocks. The hull color is white with newly painted blue accent stripes, blue bottom paint (see refurbishing details below), blue boot stripe and fresh white canvas.

This vessel was originally owned and maintained for twenty years by an extremely knowledgeable Naval Officer and captain. The current owner carefully selected this yacht with plans for he and his wife to extensively cruise and stay onboard for extended periods of time, entertaining overnight guests occasionally. Reliability and safety were a priority. The current seller then began to outfit the boat accordingly. Price was not an issue....quality of the work was. Known deficiencies of this particular model and age-related concerns were properly tackled. Full documentation of the work performed, including records and hundreds of photographs are available and will convey to the new owner in the sale. Extensive manuals for Perkins Engines, the Jefferson Owner's Manual, and many parts manuals too, in both hard and soft copies.

Refrigerator was replaced in the spring of 2022. The new furniture has slipcovers too as well as storage underneath. Louise came up with some loving words: Sweet Louise is well loved for her classic beauty and generous storage spaces and has been recently updated with new modular salon furniture with storage under, as well as custom curtains in there and in the staterooms.
"Sweet Louise" was cruised from Hilton Head, through the Chesapeake Bay, Hudson River, Erie Canal, Oswego Canal, to Trent, ON, then returned to North Carolina this fall. Some 2,400 miles. She is well loved and has done a fine job cruising.
