The interior is a white bead-board.  Douglass fir makes up the flooring, arched beams, and cabinet framing.  Other cabinets are made of maple by a master cabinet maker.  All of the cabin housing was built by a master shipwright from New Zealand.  Starting in the aft cabin there is a full queen sized spring and mattress. Maple side stands, and LED light for reading and rope lighting for ambiance.  

The bathroom is full sized, complete with shower, cabinets and vanity. The saloon is approx 14 x 10 and has built in seating and a chart table. Access to the motor well is via two hatches, and affords stand up working space.

Forward of the saloon is the galley with a double sink, two burner stove (diesel fuel),  and a full sized Whirlpool refrig. Forward of the galley is a two bunk sleeping area, and open storage to port.

The instruments (Simrad), radar, sidescan , chart plotter were installed by an electrical engineer at Marine Repair Services.  He also installed a Blue Seas Systems panel and ran all wiring. The Side-Power bow thruster is a SE100/185T (24 volt) with remote controller used on the flybridge. The heavy duty Lewmar winch retrieves a 150 feet of 3/8’’ chain with foot pedals on the deck and another control on the dash. There is on 8D starting battery, a dedicated instrument battery, a dedicated battery for bow thruster and winch, and 6 6volt batteries for domestic uses.

Owners installed a Marine Aqua Drive, which dampens vibration (and extended the prop beyond the dead rise of the keel.) They put a new four blade prop on, and kept the three blade as a spare. Appreciation comes with the prop and shaft being protected in the full length keel.

The toilet is electric, with macerator (new).    

The flybridge provides excellent sight lines for driving the boat, as well as entertaining.  Two bunks with attractive cushions are perfect for napping or travel.  The bridge has a wheel and full instrumentation. A hard-top Bimini was added in 2017.  

The hull is 44 feet and constructed of 9/32” steel, coated with an epoxy barrier and coated with anti-fouling paint in 2017 and scrubbed monthly. The bridge surround is aluminum. Two part Acrolon paint is used on the top sides. Decks have a non-slip paint and surround the entire cabinhouse.  

This boat is sturdy and hardy:  she traveled the Great American Loop with comfort and safety in all conditions, including rock and countless locks, where boats take a beating.  Plus she invariably attracts interest because of here beautiful shear, and salty appearance.
