Deck And Hull

Viewing the Yacht from across the basin you will be tantalized by her classic lines, and beautiful flag blue hull. Such a classic yacht immediately beckons all to come aboard. Entering the cockpit you notice the teak decks and large teak table with bench seating and chairs that comfortably fit 6. The extended deck hard top provides protection from rain and sun in the cockpit. In addition, the owner has added protective wing doors to keep dry and secure during heavy winds and rain while underway. As you walk around the outside of the yacht you notice the details: no window frames, built-in bow seating, high bulwarks which provide safe walkways around the yacht. At the bow is an anchor windlass which controls two anchors with 150 ft. of chain on the Danforth, and 300 ft. of chain on the Bruce. There are port and starboard power cords, fresh and salt water hose bibs. TV and phone connections and the shore water pressure regulator are located in the bow storage cabinets. Returning to the cockpit, you enter the salon which is wide open and you can see from bow to stern.

On the forward port side of the salon are the steps into the pilothouse and galley. There is an excellent galley set up with state of the art refrigeration and appliances, and a helm station that is designed like a piece of art, with a very comfortable dinette.

The Galley is well laid out with lots of counter space. You will feel right at home with a full size oven and cook-top, convection microwave, dish washer, and granite countertops.  

Heading down the curved stairway to the staterooms, your attention is focused on the quality of the wood, recessed hand rails, and the finish of the teak. Forward is the VIP stateroom with a queen size bed, in-suite head and shower.

Moving aft and to port is the 3rd guest stateroom, with an en-suite head and separate shower. The generous side by side bunks are comfortable for adults and children alike. 

Once you enter the master stateroom you can view the lavishly custom designed high gloss burl wood headboard. This stateroom is full beam width, with a king size bed which is perfectly located fore and aft on center line, and offers twin his/her separate heads with a central shower, rows of drawers that have been hand crafted with the finest cedar lined closets.
