Exceptional Build Quality, Systems & Equipment
Soolaimon is an extraordinary luxury center cockpit. Her strong sea kindly shoal draft hull design has an exquisite custom 3 stateroom varnished teak interior. The exceptional design and equipment for offshore cruising is second to none. Includes fully automated sail handling and wide decks with direct walk through to the large cockpit.
The meticulous attention to detail is unbelievable and present throughout the interior and exterior. Soolaimon is as close as one could imagine to the ultimate modern luxury cruising yacht for live aboard. With her draft of less than 6' and intercoastal bridge clearance of 64' she has access to thousands of anchorages and marinas not available to many yachts over 50'. There is everything a couple or family would desire for offshore cruising.
Soolaimon offers luxurious accommodations that maximize comfort, privacy and storage. Many practical and innovative features enhance sailing and living aboard. The exquisite spacious 3 stateroom interior is beautifully finished with matched, varnished teak woodwork with solid raised panel teak lockers and louvered cabinets. The cabin sole is hand picked solid 1/2" teak over 3/4" marine ply throughout, and is finished with 3 coats of West epoxy and multiple coats of varnish. All cabin sole panels are removable with lock down latches.
Starting forward is the VIP guest cabin with centerline queen (base swings up on gas shocks for equipment access and massive storage) multiple drawers, lockers, shelves and storage compartments. This large, attractive, very comfortable stateroom offers extra floor space and headroom, great storage and total privacy. A solid teak pocket door separates the two forward guest staterooms and head completely from the salon. Offering complete privacy for guests or VIP charters. Note: master & guest mattresses made of 100% natural latex, 8" thick EXTREMELY comfortable and hypoallergenic.
To starboard between the main saloon and VIP forward cabin is an impressive private study with wide teak desk that can be converted to an additional sleeping berth. There are three wide custom teak faced rollout filing cabinets, double hanging locker, multiple shelf lockers and built in 12 volt computer. With the desk top fully raised the study is converted to an additional guest cabin.
Forward of the salon to port is the guest head with separate stall shower/sauna with Corian seat, teak paneling above and marble floors. Above the Corian vanity counter are stainless lined medicine cabinets with mirrored faces. Outboard of the Vacuflush head is a Corian counter with additional storage under. Below the vanity and shelf are teak louvered locker doors. The white bulkheads, shower, floors, light colored vanity and sink, and deck hatches enhance the bright airy feeling.

Amidships is a large, attractive, very comfortable raised main salon with luxurious appointments including plush upholstery, L shaped settee to starboard around a convertible table and built in straight settee to port. Both are very comfortable seating for lounging and dining. Above and outboard of the salon settees are raised panel underdeck cabinets. There is additional storage outboard of the settee backrest and under the settee seats.
The custom teak dining/coffee table has an adjustable height feature and leaves that are hinged to convert the table from a standard cocktail size to a 6 foot long dining table. The table can also be lowered permitting conversion to a double berth. At the aft end of the table is a removable pedestal style chair with backrest. It is adjustable and swivels for multiple uses (facing forward for an additional dining seat, or facing aft as a galley counter seat).
Aft and outboard of the starboard salon settee are built in lockers with one dedicated for entertainment equipment and another for the ice maker. A hidden HD 3D 40" Sony Flat Screen (new 2012) rises up from a hinged cabinet top. The TV cabinet is also hinged on the inboard side allowing it to be angled for improved viewing from all salon seating.
The companionway staircase has wide steps for easy entry and sits just above cabin sole. It is also hinged in the middle allowing it to be raised providing unrestricted access to the machinery area.
Aft of the port settee, adjacent to the cockpit companionway is the offshore navigation center with built in electronics console above and outboard of the navigation table. The table top lifts to access a storage compartment. Under the forward half of the table is a bank of three deep drawers. Aft of the swivel navigation seat are three breaker panels that are hinged for easy access. Multiple control panels including gene start panel, separate metered power panel for alternative power (wind and solar) and master battery switches. Below the electrical panels is a bookshelf.
The spacious U-shaped galley is truly a masterpiece of design and build quality. The extra counter space, drawer and cabinet storage, along with full size appliances will please the most sophisticated chef. The use of light colored Corian for counters, lower sliding cabinet locker faces and back splashes complements the matching raised panel solid teak cabinet lockers and drawer faces. Many of the cabinets have roll out shelves and all the pantry drawers slide out. There are multiple options for lighting the galley and opening ports provide natural light and ventilation.
Opposite the starboard galley is a sizable work area with many drawers, cabinets, lockers and stainless counter (1/8" stainless with overhang). This area is currently set up as a workshop, but could also be used for additional galley countertop work space and storage. Under the counter is a bank of 4 wide, deep drawers and a large locker. Above the counter are double shelf lockers.
The private aft master cabin is what you would expect in a larger center cockpit design with centerline king berth framed by seats on each side. Matching hanging lockers and multiple storage lockers. Cabin light can be controlled from entry as well as berth and high teak book shelves on each side of berth offer ample space for all of your reading materials. The Samsung 26" flat screen is inconspicuously mounted to port on a swivel bracket for easy viewing from both sides of berth. Also 2 STD DVR receivers for both US and Latin America direct TV. The king berth base swings up on gas shocks providing access to equipment and additional storage.
The ensuite master cabin head has a separate stall shower with corian seat and marble floors. The design is similar to the forward head with light Corian vanity, white bulkheads and louvered teak medicine cabinet and locker faces. All the fixtures are the best that money can buy, including the Vacuflush head.

Soolaimon is one of two 60' yachts designed by Jack Corey and built by Antigua yachts. Antigua Yachts manufactured many yachts in Fl. such as the Antigua 44' (originally the CSY 44 but redesigned and mfg'd by Antigua ), Antigua 53' ( Revamped Outlander 51 with a newly designed deck and house) and the Antigua 60 & 70's which were new ground up builds, all Jack Cory designs. She was highly customized by Corinthian Boat builders to accommodate her new owner's specific and meticulous requirements for the ultimate in safety, comfort and luxury. She is the most unique yacht in her class you will see. Built to be a safe, strong, fast performance cruiser she is easily handled by a crew of one or two. Most systems were installed from 2007 to 2015 and are of the best engineering and highest quality available. She is truly a masterpiece of form, function and beauty with an impeccable design. Her interior arrangement and deck layout are ideally suited for live aboard, extended passage making shorthanded or even VIP chartering.
There are few yachts so well designed and built as Soolaimon. Hundreds of additional details large and small make her very functional with exquisite joinery and system installation. " Elegant" "is the word used by guests. Only during an inspection can one truly comprehend and appreciate the total commitment to quality, functionality and beauty. With her shoal draft and low bridge clearance she is great for the Bahamas as well as intercoastal travel in the US East Coast.
