SUNROOM AND AFT DECK:
After boarding the vessel via her midship gates and walking aft through a side deck door, the vessel’s aft deck “sunroom” area sets the stage for the luxury that lies ahead. Not unlike a summer “cottage” in Maine, the aft teak deck area is arranged with White Wicker furniture and offers 360 degree breathtaking views. Foredeck access is available via two side deck doors in the sunroom space (port and stbd.) Access to the flybridge is made via a stainless steel ladder with teak treads and high gloss varnished sliding overhead hatch. Moving aft and three steps down brings one to the stern deck; where there is another spacious exterior teak deck & great access to the offset transom door/swim platform (w/custom stainless scuba ladder). There are custom lockers for snorkel/scuba gear as well as a (6) tank water-filled well for re-filling via the on-board rapid-fill air compressor. There is a dedicated high capacity “shaved ice” maker to starboard of the primary engine room access door. An over-sized teak deck hatch provides excellent access to the machinery space below. Hose bibs for both salt and fresh water washdowns are to starboard, while the 100 amp service cords are deployed to port.
MAIN SALON AND GALLEY:
A large single high gloss-varnished teak-framed sliding glass door provides access and entry to the main salon from the aft sunroom/deck area. A large u-shaped settee to port and L-shaped settee to starboard provide comfortable seating for many and excellent viewing out the large main salon windows. Outstanding natural ventilation can be achieved in the main salon/galley space due to several “drop-down” style windows on either side. Wood valences house the Venetian-style privacy shades for all windows. There are two custom cocktail/coffee tables inboard of the settees. A large flatscreen TV is mounted on the aft salon bulkhead and provides excellent viewing angles from the entire main salon/galley area.
The custom red birch dining table is expandable, and accommodates up to 8 people. Two sizes of leaves are stowed inside the table. Like much of the vessel’s interior wood detail, the table edges are inlaid with a band of highly polished stainless steel. Beautiful. The custom birch dining chairs were cleverly designed to accept “leg-risers” (that stow under the main salon utility desk to starboard) to become “bar stools” in the galley.
The galley, just forward of the dining table/area, offers excellent counter space. The black granite counter is on two levels; a bar top height and a more traditional galley counter height inside the traditional cooking triangle. Designed to be bright, open, inclusive and family-oriented, the galley space is laid out very well. With galley stove, sink and refrigeration all within arms reach, the chef will be smiling; even when underway! A large front-opening refrigerator, drawer-style deep freezer, custom sliding door-sized spice rack, dishwasher, microwave and more…. make this galley more than complete.
MASTER CABIN & GUEST CABIN:
After descending from the dining/galley area via a custom spiral staircase, one finds two palatial cabins (owner’s (aft) and guest accommodations just forward) with King-sized beds; “his & her” heads in Master cabin (single head with separate shower in guest cabin) with black granite countertops; dual access to stall shower in Master cabin via “his & her” heads; cedar-lined walk-in closets; sitting areas and more. Cabin hull ports bring in natural light and great viewing. Interior raised-panel bulkheads and custom cabinetry are built from red birch; with many drawer faces and panels from the heart of the tree. The cabin soles are constructed of white-washed Bamboo wood. Over-sized flat screen TV’s are bulkhead-mounted for great viewing from all cabin angles. To describe these accommodations as “large” is an understatement. There is a large built-in wine storage cooler in the passageway between these two cabins.
HELM/BRIDGE – MAIN DECK:
Access to the bridge is via a passageway to starboard and forward of the galley. A “day-head” to port of the passageway with pocket-door, offers a small stainless sink, black granite counter, and commode.
The bridge is impressive, stunning and commanding. Fully equipped with lots of redundancy, the bridge offers complete control to the Captain. Extremely well designed, major electronic components include: a fire suppression system; a pair of large Nobeltec flat screens that provide multiple functions including vessel position, radar, AIS and more. An additional Furuno GPS plotter serves as backup to the back-up. A fully custom AC/DC breaker panel system was designed and installed in the custom overhead valance. A pair of joysticks control both bow and stern thrusters along with many radios for communications via VHF, HF and Satellite. Autopilot, full mechanical/engine monitoring and more. There are cameras mounted in the engine room, aft deck and forward for video monitoring from the bridge.
A very unique and comfortable seating area was designed and built just aft of the helm (includes a custom pull-out leg rest for lounging). The large custom wood table functions well for those on watch and “snacking” or looking over the chart kit. A great place for visits from the owner, guests and crew standing by to take watch. There is an elaborate bank of drawers for charts just to port of the helm. This whole area can be removed to provide excellent access to the electronics forward of the helm. The flybridge and upper helm is accessed via an aft facing staircase on the starboard side of the bridge house.
A fully equipped 2nd helm station is available on the flybridge. With maximum visibility and full instrumentation at the Captain’s fingertips, the flybridge helm station is a great way to operate/dock the vessel in settled weather. There is additional seating to starboard of the flybridge helm seat and it even includes a “pull-out” slider with filler cushion to convert for lounging/sunbathing.
Access to the flybridge is via what many may consider “a wooden work of art.” The fully custom high gloss varnished teak companionway slider magically disappears into a seahood that is integral to the flybridge. This elegant wooden arch; its joinery, fit and finish is a fine example of the work so typically seen on yachts built by Lyman-Morse.
An equally impressive custom bi-fold high gloss varnished teak companionway door cleverly nestles to the side when open, and shuts out the weather when teak slider and door are closed.
A large and spacious dining settee and varnished teak table provide seating for 6-8. A pseudo-galley to port provides the essentials for this upper dining area. The u-shaped space includes a stainless sink, refrigeration, ice maker, ample counter space and even features a dumbwaiter tunnel between the flybridge and full galley below!
Moving aft one finds additional seating to port; a custom storage locker for tender fuel to starboard along with a hydraulic crane for launching the 16′ Novurania hard-bottom inflatable (w/90HP 4-stroke 2019 Yamaha OB) mounted in custom deck chocks/hold-down; the Yachts Mast (on centerline) and associated antennas; two life rafts (mounted outboard on both starboard and port sides); and a second custom high gloss-varnished teak companionway slider with stair access to lower sunroom/aft deck.
CAPTAIN’S OFFICE & CAPT/CREW QUARTERS:
Just to starboard of the main bridge is a second spiral staircase that leads to the Captain’s office/crew quarters. A great space dedicated to keeping the “ship’s affairs” in order, and for “down-time” for the crew. And depending on how the boat is operated, this space and two additional cabins could be used for guests or additional family members.
This Captain’s office area is also equipped with (2) additional front-opening refrigeration units; an over-sized box-style freezer, and the vessels washer and dryer. Moving forward the space is equally divided into two mirror image bunk-style cabins (two single bunks per cabin.) Each berth has a dedicated flat screen TV and each cabin has a dedicated head with mirrors, Corian countertop/sink and commode, along with a separate stall shower. A bank of drawers, hanging lockers and additional counter space is inboard of the bunks.
