The owners stateroom is
located on the main salon, about 225 sq. ft. and has a full 15' wide
wall closet with full length mirror doors on the front. Steps
lead down from here to the bath area which has a 6' wide walk-in shower. This area down here is 15' front to back
and over 8' wide and has a 10' long counter with opening ports at
eye level on the outboard side. On the inboard side, the
closets etc., have back panels that remove to access the train of
food cars as the underwing and salon floor are separated about 21"
tall and 30" wide tunnels.
The other staterooms under
the main salon are (3) under the floor with queen size beds that
will slide apart to form single beds, the plan so far. Each
stateroom with its own shower, toilet, sink, counter with opening
ports and air conditioning.
There are two crew quarters at the front of each bow each with
queen beds, shower, head and settee that will make into a
bunk (kids will be coming sooner or later.) Opaque windows above
on the dash area, allow light in as well as a couple of port lights
and a flush deck hatch and an electric stair case that you enter or
exit from the side walkway outside.
Main salon is all one level with the galley in aft port corner (30"
deep counters) center island with bar stools around it with raised service
area, about 1,000 sq. ft.. Plan to have a separate bar inside with wall for wine
storage and stools for 4-6 and on the other side a lounge area for
TV and entertainment center as well as small office desk space.
Pilot house is open to aft deck and floor up about 3' to the area
that will be wide enough for 3 helm chairs and stairs
up and out to the upper aft deck lounge area sundeck. The pilot
house windows all open and has moon roof sliding hatches overhead as
well as opening side windows and indirect air inlets when they need
to be closed but air wanted inside.
The aft deck will house nice dining and lounging areas,
a 2 person hot tub, outside head, shower, bar and ample seating with

electronic controlled and have 3 bladed full feathering props that
are adjustable pitch. The two diesel 11-13k gensets are in the
engine room with sound shields as well as each hull has its own 18
gal elec/heat exchange hot water tank. There is 200 gallons
fresh water with an 1800 gallon/day watermaker. These areas have a toy
box on each side that will winch in a 15' shoreboat on one side and two
Waverunners on the other as well as house dive equipment and underwater
scooters (got to have toys.)
She is well underway and plans
for everything above the water line are being made. The slide show
will be updated as we go and a lot of this will make since then and
as the concept artists help put the ideas in sketches.
