This European styled raised pilothouse yacht was introduced in 1998 and offered a very impressive mix of comfort, style and performance Her spacious three stateroom interior layout includes a large galley, wraparound dinette and space-age helm forward, a full beam owner’s stateroom and a luxurious VIP cabin Careful consideration was given to the color coordinated fabrics, carpet and accents These features combine with her cherry wood interior provides a casual yet sophisticated aura throughout the vessel There is nearly seven feet of headroom in the main salon and she invites everyone on board to sit in her adjustable pilothouse helm seat that features joystick steering Take note of the interior bridge access to the upper deck from the pilothouse, the large engine room, spacious flybridge, and tender davit system This vessel rides on a modified V-hull with a 13 degree deadrise aft 

You will feel the turbo chargers kick in about 1600 RPM as the speed builds to 32-33 knots at flank speed, yet it only sips fuel at displacement speeds of 8-10 knots

Starting in the bow in the guest stateroom, we face aft and see the private head access for the guest stateroom On the starboard side we enter the hallway and immediately see the bunk stateroom access to port Further aft, the master stateroom access is to port The master stateroom displays separate head and shower/tub compartments with an aesthetically pleasing vanity area between them and a 32" LCD flat screen TV Across the hallway from the master access is the hallway entry to the guest head We now ascend a circular six step staircase to the pilothouse The helm and interior flybridge access is to port and vessel entry to starboard A companionway will take us further aft and down to the galley (off to port) and main salon The main salon will most likely be the hub of most activity with its 37" LCD flat screen TV The salon is spacious and carefully laid out A breakfast bar is cleverly built into the galley countertop system A sliding glass door will lead us to the fully enclosed aft cockpit and through a transom door to the swim platform There is also additional flybridge access from the aft cockpit The flybridge is exceptionally large and can easily entertain a party of 8 A stainless steel propane grill and other amenities, including ice maker and bar sink provide the perfect party atmosphere
