Rhapsody is a thoroughly updated Paragon 2009 94′ Motor Yacht with an enclosed pilothouse. She features twin Caterpillar C-32s and (2) Northern Lights Generators with only about 2000 hours on all machinery. 

In 2018/19 she was refit by Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding Co. The flybridge was converted to an enclosed pilothouse, the interior received all new soft goods, new appliances in the galley, as well as granite countertops and new a dining area, all upper deck areas were repainted, and all equipment and systems were serviced.

Rhapsody is turn-key and ready to go cruising!

Rhapsody has a warm welcoming feel as soon as you walk through the salon doors to the open layout of the main deck. Rich Mahogany can be seen throughout. The boat flows well and has a spacious skylounge and after deck with all the amenities for entertaining.

Walking into the salon through double automatic sliding doors is a spacious and comfortable sofa as well as an elegant armchair. To starboard side, are cabinets, built-in fireplace and a pop-up TV. At the forward end of the salon on the port side, is a desk/counter area with drawers and lots of storage space. Across from the desk/counter area is a wet bar with ice maker and wine storage along with a cabinet with Audio/Video components. Forward of the wet bar on the starboard side amid-ship, is a stairwell to the large full-beam private Owner’s stateroom.

Moving forward to port, is a large and open chef-style galley with a Viking gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, pantry, high-low pop up appliance center, and a “Dutch” door accessing the covered walk-around decks (great for crew moving in and out without disturbing the salon area).

Forward of the galley is a formal dining area with seating for 6 guests and built-in storage cabinets. Between the galley and dining area is an automatic divide that separates the galley from the dining area on-demand. The area has direct access to the foredeck sun lounge seating thru sliding doors on both port and starboard sides. On the starboard side is a staircase leading to the skylounge and a separate stairway leading to the lower guest staterooms. At the landing of the forward stairway to the left (aft), is the full-beam VIP and to the right (forward) is the guest stateroom, both with private ensuite heads and stall showers. 4 heads total.

The forward end of the enclosed skylounge houses a dash with a full array of electronics and seating with two Pompanette chairs. Directly aft to port and starboard are L-shaped settees with large wood finished tables. To the aft of the settees to starboard is a convenience galley with sink, fridge and microwave, and storage. To port is a storage cabinet and a 2-piece head.

The skylounge sliding door access the aft skylounge deck with teak decking, a “U” shaped settee with 2 tables and a barbeque/storage and sink area to port. There are stairs leading from this deck to the lower aft deck.

The aft section of the skylounge deck is equipped with a davit and dingy storage.

Refit in 20017-2019 by Lyman Morse

Rhapsody underwent a 14-month interior refit at Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding in Thomaston during 2017-19 that included the addition of an enclosed flybridge, relocation of the steering station, and significant interior work.

The refit, overseen by 35-year Lyman-Morse Project Manager Bill Belyea, involved installing all-new custom African hardwood burl veneers and a redesign that included enclosing the entire flybridge. The resulting so-called “skylounge” creates a third interior level to the boat that features a dedicated helm station, two settees, additional galley, camera locker, head, and other features. The skylounge sits atop the 200,000-pound Rhapsody, yet reduced the yacht’s total weight by approximately 3,500 pounds.

Belyea says the retrofit was part of a series of upgrades that the owners sought after living on the boat for several years. “Essentially, this was like you buy an existing house and there is always something you don’t like. So you refit it,” says Belyea. “The owners knew what they wanted and we gave them that.”
