Vessel Walkthrough/Description: Just forward of the companionway; small ‘L’ shaped galley is located to port and to starboard, a quarter berth and chart table/nav station with a wet locker underneath the table. Continuing forward is the main salon with a pull-out port settee, which converts into a double berth, and a settee to starboard. The ‘L’ shaped dinette to port features an ample teak table which folds against the main bulkhead with a storage/shelving area behind. The head is to port and a hanging locker to starboard. The v-berth is in the bow section with drawers and cupboards for storage – one which can be alternately used as hanging storage. The interior is varnished teak and ash; the cabin sole is varnished teak and holly. Access to the generator, transmission and stuffing box is through the quarter berth, as well as a removable section of the galley area under the companionway gives easy access to the engine and all associated mechanicals. Storage on the boat is remarkable for the size and design of the boat. The designer has utilized all available space. Some of the lockers have been cedar lined and converted to shelving by adding teak grating, but can be easily retroed for hanging locker space if needed. Ten bronze/screened ports as well as two opening hatches and two dorades provide good ventilation.

OWNER'S COMMENTS: Designed by Carl Alberg, the full keel with a cutaway forefoot ensures solid maneuverability and kindly motion offshore. The cutter rig is designed to provide flexibility and response whether offshore or coastal cruising. A mast height of 47' allows passage under many ICW bridges, as well as the infamous railroad bridge at Ft Mayaca on the Okeechobee Waterway, if you so choose. The five foot draft has proven itself to be no barrier during the three years she cruised the Bahamas. BRAVE HEART has undergone significant upgrades and improvements since the current owner acquired her in 2007.
