You soon get used to slipping through the relatively small doors to the side decks, which are nicely balanced to swing open and shut easily, but can nevertheless be dogged down securely when the need arises. Boarding and disembarking from the side decks is also easy despite the raised gunwales, although it is a bit of a drop down to pontoon level. Hatches on both quarters give access to a sizable lazaret (which includes a saltwater fire hose), and for an aft-cabin boat there is plenty of deck stowage, not least within the seat-bases. The rope locker forward is separate from the adjacent chain locker. Nipping up to the flybridge via the quarterdeck from either side of the vessel is safely assured, with good-sized treads and kindly angled steps, plus plenty of handholds. Most of the exterior is finished in teak decking as standard. The flybridge is uncluttered, and the high coamings mean you feel tucked safely out of harm’s way. The mast hinges down to reduce air draught. Stern A transom gate gives access from the bathing platform to the decks, and to the aft cabin, via a hatch in the quarterdeck. Foredeck This is mini-ship style, with large bitts and enclosed fairleads. A freshwater wash-down hose is incorporated in the locker. Side decks The raised gunwales are topped with teak, and 12in (30cm) midships bitts.
Flaps on the main dinette’s table hinge out so that six can dine on the extremely comfortable settee, or you can put your feet up and watch the flat-screen television that floats up out of the sideboard opposite. The galley, a few easy steps down, is a practical U-shape with plenty of countertop space. It is very well appointed, not least because it is all-electric, with a 7kVA generator being fitted as standard. Galley consists of:- 24v (130L) refridgerator Electric hob Combination oven Extractor Twin bowl stainless sink Opposite is the forward WC, acting as a day-toilet as well as serving the adjacent cabin. If required, a washer/dryer can be fitted in an oversized cupboard worked into the aft bulkhead. The usual alternative layouts for the forecabin are vee berths or a central double. But on this boat the vee has been skewed, with one side extended to make a small double while the other is child-sized — a neat solution for when your guests are a couple with a youngster. The aft master cabin is indulgent without being greedy on space, and benefits from a good-sized en-suite. There is also a companionway directly out on to the aft deck. Saloon A lowish window line affords a great view in all directions, even when you are seated, and there is headroom of at least 6ft 4in (1.93m). The dinette seats six when the table is opened up. galley To support the owners’ plans for extended cruising, the galley has a good-sized trunk freezer installed beneath the worktop. There is plenty more well thought-out storage, including a sensible rubbish bin. Master Suite There is a full bank of hanging lockers and cupboards on each side of the wide double berth. Toilets Both WCs benefit from a separate shower cubicle of a wholly practical size. Sea toilet Design Detail Neat practical details include a chart locker set into the deckhead at the forward end of the wheelhouse/saloon.
Mechanical and Rigging
GRP Twin Volvo Penta TAMD75Ps 6cyl, 7.28lt diesels 480hp at 2600rpm There are two ways into the engineroom. Lifting out a hatch in the saloon sole allows you to drop straight down onto the treadplate between the engines. Or flicking a switch to raise the stairwell that leads to the galley reveals a dogged door in the compartment’s forward bulkhead. This latter approach also gives access to a ‘glory hole’ which houses the Eberspächer heater and waste tank as well as providing useful storage for engine spares and tools. Either way, all the main check points and service items are easy to get at, not least the primary fuel filters and transparent-topped raw-water strainers to the front of the bay. Items located outboard of the engines, such as one or two of the filters, are a good 12in (30cm) or so clear of the wing fuel tanks, making them quite accessible. The generator is located against the aft bulkhead, but is just high enough to leave reasonable access to the shaft logs beneath it. The engineering appears to go by the book, to a high standard, and with a good ‘loaded’ insulation fitted to all surfaces. The yard have also built in some useful extras such as drain plugs to the drip trays, and a handy freshwater tap.
