Vessel Walkthrough

Beginning on the aft deck, features include a built-in cushioned aft lounge settee with facing varnished teak hi-lo table and seating for eight. A stainless steel ladder with hand rails forward to starboard leads up to the boat deck and flybridge. Port and starboard aft are 3 steps leading down to the cockpit and swim platform. A textaline sun shade slides into a hidden track above the aft setee, providing protection from sun and wind.

A sliding air door center line opens from the aft deck to the salon. Joinerwork in the salon and throughout the yacht is done in hand rubbed honey teak with a satin finish. All cabinetry features recessed paneling and there is solid teak crown molding in the salon and galley. The sole is teak and holly covered with new bound edge carpet. Large framed windows flood the salon with an abundance of natural light. Upon entry one is greeted by the tasteful all new interior decor. Immediately to port is a U shaped cushioned settee surrounding an electrically operated teak hi-lo cocktail table which converts to a dining table for six. To starboard is cabinetry housing the audio video components as well as the 46" TV on an electric lift. Two upholstered accent chairs face the settee. Further forward to starboard is a stairwell leading down to the master suite, and to port is the galley. The galley is open to the salon and pilothouse forward.

The pilothouse is two steps up from the salon. To port is a newly upholstered elevated convertible settee and rectangular teak dining table. Chart storage drawers are beneath. To starboard are teak steps leading up to the flybridge followed by a built-in cabinet housing a Sub Zero refrigerator. Further forward, port and starboard are sliding doors leading out to the side decks. The helm station is center line featuring excellent visibility, access and sight lines to all electronics, gauges and controls. Two cushioned power helm and companion chairs on pedestals are mounted directly behind and to the port side of the helm. The electrical distribution panels are on the starboard side of the helm.

The master suite is completely segregated from the guest staterooms with access from a stairwell on the starboard side of the salon. A new wine cooler is located in a cabinet in the stairwell.A king size island berth with built-in night stands and newly upholstered headboard and new custom mattress faces aft. Built-in cabinets, vanity and a large mirror are to port. Two double width cedar lined hanging lockers separated by built-in drawers and the TV are on the aft bulkhead. The en suite bath with stall shower is to starboard.

The VIP and guest staterooms are accessed via a stairway on the forward starboard side of the pilothouse. The VIP guest stateroom is all the way forward with queen size berth center line, two cedar lined hanging lockers and built-in vanity with mirror. The guest bath with stall shower can be accessed from the VIP stateroom or the companionway. The guest stateroom with upper and lower berths, cedar lined hanging locker and built in desk is aft of the VIP to port.

The fourth stateroom is aft, accessed from the cockpit and can serve as a guest or crew stateroom. It has upper and lower bunks, cedar lined hanging locker, and en suite bath With stall shower. It is finished to the same standard as the forward staterooms.

The large aft utility area contains a full size washer and dryer, two Sub Zero freezer drawers, a sink and an abundance of storage and work space. The engine room is entered through a center line door on the forward bulkhead of the utility area.

The flybridge can be accessed from the pilothouse or the aft deck. Beginning forward, the center line helm is guarded by a new plexiglass Venturi windshield In a stainless steel frame. Teak ladder back helm and companion chairs are directly behind the helm and to port. Aft of the helm to port is a molded fiberglass L shaped settee with new cushions. Directly in front of the settee are two convertible teak cocktail tables with hinged leaves. To starboard is a molded fiberglass cabinet with refrigerator, sink and an abundance of storage. Aft of the settee is another fiberglass cabinet with an electric barbecue grill and large ice maker built in. The entire flybridge area is covered by a fiberglass hardtop. Moving aft to the boat deck, the 14' Novurania tender is mounted fore and aft to the port side. An 1800 lb. capacity hydraulic davit with extending boom and automatic rotation is to port of the tender. A large plexiglass hatch and ladder down to the aft deck are to starboard. The entire boat deck is surrounded by a stainless steel guard rail.

The teak cockpit is easily accessed via wide teak steps from either side of aft deck. The cockpit provides a platform for effortless boarding to and from the tender, blue water fishing and all the water sports you can imagine. Vast storage is located through water tight deck hatches to the lazzarette. A dive compressor is located there with remote fill station and controls in the cockpit. Access to the swim platform is through the large transom door.

Hull & Construction

Offshore utilizes the best fiberglass materials available including solid hand laminated "Knytex" bi uni-directional fabric and vinylester resins below the waterline. This provides greater strength and reduced weight over conventional woven roving / mat construction. Above the water line closed cell "Core Cell" material is vacuum bagged to the same bi and uni-directional fabric using isothalic and vinylester resins.

The hull is one integral laminated component. The main deck and cabin are one component which is laminated to the hull. The boat deck, fly bridge and pilothouse roof are one fiberglass component which is laminated to the cabin structure. When these three individual modules are laminated together an extremely strong, rigid and water tight uni-structure is formed that meets or exceeds ABS requirements. Four massive full length stringers and multiple thwartship frames are laminated and bonded in the hull to minimize panel size and achieve incredible hull strength.
The bilge areas are divided into five sections to further increase water tight integrity. Each section has it's own automatic bilge pump and all can be made common by gate valves in each section.

Massive main bulkheads consist of multiple layers of cored fiberglass and each are insulated with multiple insulation materials designed for each bulkhead's sound requirements. Engineered insulation at the engine room overhead and at the bulkheads as well as the master stateroom bulkheads utilize multiple layers of varying types of sound deadening/sound absorbing materials to minimize engine noise and insure maximum privacy.

Incorporated in the hulls construction are two heavily laminated rub rails that are structural components of the hull. The substantial rub rails, capped with solid stainless steel, increase the strength of the hull sides protect the hull when coming alongside a piling or dock. The joint between cabin sides and overhead is bonded with frp and finished in gel coat instead of caulking.

The running gear is fully protected by an extended keel which also adds stability.

  – Solid fiberglass bottom to waterline, vacuum bagged Core Cell hull sides superstructure
  – Exterior hull finish in high gloss Cook gel coat
  – Full length keel for directional stability running gear protection
  – Sealed bow compartment (crash bulkhead) w/ water tight hatch
