Vessel Walkthrough

CHAPTER THREE is a raised pilothouse-style cruising yacht capable of 22 knots cruising speed, as well as, very comfortable low-speed cruising. This classic design features a spacious salon with large U-shaped seating on the port side, 2 new occasional chairs with ottoman starboard, and a teak hi-low table that opens for dining and doubles as a cockpit table. A built-in cabinet houses the entertainment equipment and a flat screen. Aft through double doors is the cockpit that features outdoor seating, a storage cabinet with ice maker, and adjacent cockpit controls. The swim platform is accessed through the transom door which provides boarding rails for safety. The bridge is entered via a ladder and the side decks are wide, offering safe and easy passage fore & aft. Boarding gates on both side decks provide convenient entry onto the yacht.

Going forward from the salon is the low-profile, open galley, which is very spacious for a yacht of this size. There is plenty of counter space with all the amenities of home, including refrigerator/freezer, sink trash compactor, microwave, and range. The galley is open to the pilothouse which gives the impression of a much larger salon/galley.

Forward from the galley and up a few stairs is the raised pilothouse which has a large dinette, L-shaped lounge, two helm chairs and all the necessary instrumentation for navigation. Starboard, thee is a cabinet which offers additional refrigeration and a staircase to the flybridge, as well as a pass-through from the pilothouse to the bridge. The area is well laid out, very functional, and offers good visibility for navigating and handling the yacht.

From the pilothouse on the starboard side is a staircase that leads to the VIP stateroom and its private head and shower, which also serves as a day head. At the base of the staircase is a locker containing a washer & dryer. The VIP stateroom has V-berth arrangement with a center filler cushion capable of converting to a full size berth. There is plenty of storage with a cedar lined hanging locker on either side and plenty of drawer storage. The head has a private entrance from the stateroom as well as an entrance from the hallway.

The Master stateroom with its private head and shower is accessed from the salon on the starboard side via a separate staircase. It offers a queen center-lined berth with night stands on either side, two large cedar lined hanging lockers, plenty of drawer space, and an escape hatch overhead.

The flybridge is accessed from the aft deck by a ladder or from the pilothouse via a staircase. The helm station is full forward with two Pompanette ladder-back chairs and, behind, an L-shaped lounge with two teak-trimmed tables. Aft of the seating areas is the boat deck with a 13' dinghy and davit and on the starboard side, a St. Croix davit on starboard side.
