Vessel Walkthrough


The companionway steps lead down to a very spacious interior styled by the Italian firm Nauta Designs, well known for its mega-yacht interiors. The designers have done a very nice job compromising between stylishness and the need to use the interior at sea with fiddles and handholds abound in warm, light, and airy surroundings. When the light gets too bright, blinds pull down inside a deck liner/valance that keeps them in place when the boat's heeling. The salon table cleverly swivels and folds up for sailing and expands for dining. Open for business, the table seats eight. Opposite the table is a comfortable straight settee with a fold down armrest. The nav station is to starboard of the companionway, and no bulkhead obstructs the view forward. The chart table is big enough to accommodate charts with a minimum of folding. The spacious L-Shaped galley is to port, with a gimbaled three-burner stove and oven. The galley has a plenty of seagoing elements. The sinks are close to the centerline so they don't fill on either tack. There's plenty of storage space and abundant counter space. The forward stateroom features a centerline queen berth with a pair of hull ports. The forward hatch supplies ventilation and additional light. The large en-suite head has a separate shower enclosed by a curved sliding door. A hatch above the shower ventilates the head. Opposite the head is a good-sized hanging locker and a vanity with a seat. The mirror image aft cabins features a great use of space with hanging lockers and shelve storage. The aft head has a vanity to starboard with a separate shower stall and private access from the starboard aft berth.


Open to the main salon and conveniently adjacent to the companionway, the "L" shaped galley offers plenty of counter space for meal prep. The onboard chef is a part of the party and conversations.

Construction Information

The hull is monolithic GRP construction.

Reinforced points (keel, rudder, chain plates, hull-deck joint) help to strengthen the structure.

Structural monolithic inner molding is bonded and laminated to the hull. This structural role is important as it takes and absorbs the stresses at pressure points (shrouds, chain plate tie rods, keel, rudder, etc.) and spreads any loads guaranteeing reduced strain on the hull.

The surface material of the inner molding makes cleaning easier and provides a better finish.

The deck is sandwich construction (fiberglass and balsa) for an optimal strength/weight ratio and excellent thermal and sound insulation.

A diamond point non-slip surface is applied to all areas of work and movement on deck.
