From the moment you enter one of the two doors on either side of the cabin, the interior of this beauty spreads out before you. There is a comfortable salon area over the aft cabin, with walk-out access to the stern and a ladder accessing the bridge deck. Two sofas and a large TV as well as a modern and classy navigation and helm station complete this cabin.

Stepping down below into the second level, you find a very large salon with a sleeper sofa, large TV, and L-shaped dinette that could seat 6. If you go aft, you will have a head to your right and the office to the left. This office is classy and functional, with a large amount of desk space as well as storage. There is a trundle-bed that folds down as well as a couch that serves as a berth, so this could easily be converted to a guest room for two.

The aft cabin is the gem of this boat. The king-sized bed is centered in the middle of fine teak finishing, surrounded by mirrors, a walk-in closet, a vanity, a TV, lots of shelf and storage space, and a head with a real bathtub!

If you step forward of the salon area, you enter a highly modern galley which has just been refitted with stainless appliances (including a dishwasher and trash compactor!). It's stunning. Forward of the galley is a washer/dryer and a third cabin which features a double berth with a single berth underneath. The third head is in the bow of this boat, and features a stall shower and plenty of room.

The things that stands out the most about "Anticipation" is the care that her owners have taken to keep her in such good shape. She is clean, shiny, and has many new features. Her furnishings and d├ęcor are tasteful and clean.

Don't miss this gem!
