Enjoy the modern conveniences of a built in refrigerator and ice maker on the flybridge.
Below you’ll find a roomy and air-conditioned interior centered around an open-concept main saloon with a panoramic 360-degree view of the surroundings and plenty of table space for entertaining. The fully outfitted galley is situated aft, and has perfect access to the sliding door and window to provide a perfect indoor-outdoor space for cooking and entertaining. Next to the central dining area is a navigation station and the unique forward salon door which opens onto a large forward cockpit, offering a great spot to lounge as you look out to the horizon.
Below the main deck, the 51PC boats a starboard hull that is totally dedicated as a master suite with a queen cabin aft, sitting/lounging area and a spacious head with large, separate walk in shower forward. The port hull has two queen cabins each with en-suite heads with separate showers. There is a single cabins foreward in the forward port hull, suitable for a child, accessed by an overhead hatch and also through a door forward in the port double berth. The salon table is also convertable, so the yacht can accommodate up to 9 guests maximum. There is also a forepeak captain cabin which can be used for a crew member.
On the stern sits a simple davit system to raise and lower the dinghy, which offers guests new the unique opportunity to travel with the dinghy securely raised out of the water instead of towing it behind the power catamaran.
