Four Cabin Layout

The current owner purchased the sailboat in February of 2014 and has since then been upgrading systems and enjoying it with his family and friends. This boat includes a hard to find four cabin layout which offers plenty of room for family, friends and/or crew.

The previous owner spent a year and a half sailing up the Caribbean chain of islands while he outfitted the sailboat for a trans-Atlantic crossing. He toured the Med and sailed back down to the Caribbean. This sailboat design is a proven model for this type of cruising. Subsequently, the boat has a great deal of safety gear for emergencies and for peace of mind. A list is provided in the specifications section.

Each of the 4 cabins has room for 2 persons with a double bed in each of the two forward cabins and queen size beds in the two aft cabins. There are two heads, one port, one starboard, and these are accessible from the main saloon area, as well as privately from each of the aft cabins. For additional sleeping the table in the saloon drops down to make another large bed providing total sleeping accommodations for 10 people.

The designer did a splendid job creating storage places throughout the boat. Personal items fit in a variety of spaces in the cabins and food, tool, or miscellaneous storage are abundant in the galley and saloon areas. The chart table has a lid that lifts to provide space for charts, log books and other important navigational items. In the cockpit the bench seating lifts to provide large dry storage for line, anchors, boat supplies, fuel tanks, snorkeling gear, or any other items that might be arranged to be there. Also in the cockpit a large deep storage locker under the starboard aft seat fits long and bulky items such as dingy oars, deck brushes, fenders and buckets. On the port side is a locker for the cooking gas tanks. The swim step also has large storage bins each side of the swim ladder. Up forward in the bow area is a very large and deep locker accessible through a newly replaced hatch that can store just about anything from sails to suitcases.
