SOOLAIMON is an extraordinary luxury cruising yacht with a robust and sea-kindly shoal draft hull and an exquisite custom 3-stateroom varnished teak interior. Configured and equipped for offshore cruising, few boats can measure up to the comfort and luxury of SOOLAIMON. Features include automated sail handling, the Leisure Furl in-boom mainsail furling, self-tacking staysail, oversized systems, expansive side decks with direct walk-thru access to the large center cockpit, and excellent walk-thru access to the immense center cockpit visibility from the helm enable this yacht to be very easily managed by a cruising couple.
With her shoal draft of 5’ 8” and an intercoastal waterway friendly bridge clearance of 64’, SOOLAIMON can be sailed into anchorages and marinas not otherwise available to many yachts over 50’. This is the ideal sailing yacht for a couple or family with a desire for limitless cruising without sacrificing the comforts of home.
SOOLAIMON is among the most unique yachts in her class, as evidenced by her construction and specific attention to detail. She is easily sailed by one or two individuals, built to be a safe and robust passage maker. Most of the systems were installed from 2007 to 2015 and are of the best engineering and highest quality available. SOOLAIMON is genuinely a masterpiece of form, function, and beauty with an impeccable design. Her interior arrangement and deck layout are ideally suited for liveaboard, extended passage making shorthanded, or potentially suited for VIP chartering.
There are few yachts so well designed and built as SOOLAIMON. Hundreds of additional details, large and small, make her very functional with exquisite joinery and system installation. "Elegant" is the word used by guests. Only during an inspection can one truly comprehend and appreciate the total commitment to quality, functionality, and beauty. With SOOLAIMON's shoal draft and low bridge clearance, she is excellent for the Bahamas and Keys as well as intercoastal travel along the US East Coast.
SOOLAIMON offers a large aft master stateroom, a forward VIP suite, and a single cabin that can be converted into an office. This arrangement was designed to maximize comfort, privacy, and storage. The yacht's design incorporated many practical and innovative features to enhance her sailing and liveaboard characteristics. The exquisite interior is beautifully finished with matched grain, varnished teak joinery with solid raised panel teak lockers, and louvered cabinets. The cabin sole is hand-selected solid ½" teak over ¾" marine ply throughout and is finished with three coats of West Epoxy and multiple coats of varnish. All cabin sole panels are removable and include lock-down latches for offshore passage making.
Interior Styling & Additional Features:
Amidships is the exquisite raised main saloon with luxurious appointments and plush custom settees. The starboard settee is L-shaped and wraps around the solid teak salon table. The table can be configured as either a low height cocktail table for entertaining, a large six ft dining table with seating for eight, or converted into a double berth when additional guests are onboard. To port is a full-length settee long enough to lounge on. Both settees are covered in rich UltraLeather leather with plush cushions and tall seatbacks with storage behind and under. Above and outboard of the settees are finely crafted raised panel cabinets with a proper depth for abundant storage.
The companionway staircase was designed with very wide steps and a gentle incline with abundant handholds, enabling easy access to and from the center cockpit. The stairs themselves are hinged in the middle to allow access to the machinery area.
One small detail, but notable for highlighting the attention to detail in the construction of SOOLAIMON, is that at no point at its base does the companionway stairs touch the cabin sole. You can slide a piece of paper entirely around its base! The original owner wanted to be sure that the stairs would not mar the cabin sole. This small detail only highlights the precision and detail in this spectacular yacht.
The aft end of the starboard settee is built-in lockers with a dedicated entertainment center and ice maker. Hidden within the forward edge of the galley countertop is an electric lifting 40” Sony HD 3D television that is hinged on a swivel enabling it to be viewed comfortably from the salon settees.
Unrivaled luxury and comfort, the master stateroom aboard SOOLAIMON are what you would expect in a much larger yacht. This on-the-water sanctuary includes a king-size berth with seats framed on either side. The cabin lights can be controlled from the entry and at the berth, and high teak bookshelves are located on either side for all your reading materials. Large, his and her hanging lockers, drawers, and cabinets are located port and starboard. The Samsung 26" TV is inconspicuously mounted to port on a swivel bracket for easy viewing from both sides of the berth (includes a DVD and the aforementioned satellite TV). The queen berth with a 100% natural latex 8” thick custom mattress swings up on gas shocks providing access to equipment and additional storage beneath.
The ensuite master cabin head has a separate shower stall with a Corian seat and a luxurious marble floor. The design is similar to the forward head and includes a freshwater Vacuflush marine toilet, light Corian vanity, white bulkheads, and louvered teak medicine cabinet and locker faces. All the fixtures are of the highest quality and fitting for a yacht of such caliber.
FORWARD VIP STATEROOM
The yacht's forward section is an expansive VIP guest cabin with a centerline queen berth with an 8” natural latex hypoallergenic custom mattress. For storage, large banks of drawers, tall hanging lockers, and shelving incorporated into the joinery offer guests room for their belongings for extended voyaging or comfortable short stays. Just forward of the main salon, hidden within the main bulkhead, is a solid teak pocket door that can be closed to segment off the forward section of the yacht, including the forward VIP stateroom, starboard guest cabin, and the forward head. This configuration is ideal for VIP guests, families, or the ability to host charter guests such that they have their own private living space.
Forward of the saloon is the guest's head with a separate stall shower and marble floors. The shower also includes a custom infrared sauna, Corian shower seat, and beautiful teak paneling above. Above the Corian vanity counter is stainless-lined medicine cabinets with mirrored faces. Outboard of the freshwater Vacuflush head is a Corian counter with additional storage underneath. Below the vanity and shelf are teak louvered locker doors. Overhead is an opening deck hatch for ventilation. The sanitary hoses have been updated with Shields Rubber PolyX sanitation hoses with a lifetime warranty against odor permeation.
STARBOARD GUEST CABIN & OFFICE
To starboard between the main saloon and VIP forward cabin is an impressively large private study with a wide teak deck. There are three wide custom teak-faced rollout filing cabinets, a double hanging locker, multiple shelves, and a computer cabinet. When desired, the desktop fully converts to a very comfortable single guest cabin with a natural latex 8” custom mattress.
You have never seen a galley like this on a 60' sailing yacht. The galley is truly a masterpiece of design and build quality with full-size appliances, great storage and organization, and acres of countertop space that will please even the most sophisticated chef! The light-colored Corian countertops, lower sliding cabinets locker faces, and integrated backsplashes complement the matching raised panel solid teak cabinetry, lockers, and drawers. Many of the cabinets have rollout shelves, and all the pantry drawers slide out and include organization shelves inside. There are multiple options for lighting within the galley and numerous opening portlights for natural light and proper ventilation.
Adjacent to the galley to port is a sizeable work area with a 1/8" stainless steel work surface that can double as a workbench or additional preparation area in the galley. This area is currently set up as a workshop for onboard projects and keeps the messy work of maintaining the boat organized and consolidated to a single location. This is an invaluable aspect of a proper cruising boat. Underneath the work surface is a bank of 4 wide, deep drawers and a large locker. Above the counter are double shelf lockers. There is a significant amount of storage and bin space for tools, spare parts, and anything you require to accomplish your projects.
SOOLAIMON includes a navigation and communications suite with multiple redundancies and often back-ups for the back-ups! Three networked computer stations allow all information to be tracked from several areas. Important systems information and tankage can be monitored from both the helm and navigation center with multiple alarms.
Aft of the port settee and adjacent to the cockpit companionway is the offshore navigation center with a built-in electronics console above and outboard the navigation table. The tabletop lifts to access a storage compartment. Under the forward half of the table is a bank of three deep drawers. Aft of the swivel navigation seat is the large breaker panels that are hinged for easy access. Multiple control panels, including the generator start panel, separate metered power panel for the auxiliary wind and solar power, and the master battery switches, beneath is a bookshelf.
