Description and inventory of the boat (next)

Deck arrangement

The central cockpit is quite spacious thanks to the tiller that can be raised when anchored. The benches are made of teak slats and the seat at the top of the companionway is made of mahogani. The bottom of the cockpit is lined with grating. The latter surmounts a large plexiglass overlooking the saloon table (this is where the engine entered). A kind of ditch goes around the plexiglass and the water escapes through scuppers.

The solid teak cockpit table was decorated by a Marquesan artist. It's a real table and not a rickety system like we sometimes find. It is sturdy enough to serve as a workbench. It can even be lowered to the level of the cockpit benches to make a large tatami-like square, practical for doing work that requires space, a safe play area for young children or even a giant outdoor bed (the mattresses in the forward cabins and the benches in the saloon are the length of the cockpit benches!).

 

The mainsheet tackle behind the cockpit does not interfere with the passage to the companionway. The boom is tall enough to stand upright underneath. It is held by a rigid downhaul.

 

Sunbrella plus (really waterproof) dodger no longer made in August 2023.

 

Small space at the rear of the boat with 3 trunks. You can store large gas bottles in the middle one.

 

When sailing, you can rest safely at the foot of the mast thanks to the guardrails.

 

The dinghy fits upside down between the mast and the lower stay when sailing, well maintained by the guardrails on each side of the porthole which fit into the bottom of the dinghy.

 

A bow locker and a huge sail locker at the front. Classic opening with hinged hood for the bow locker and sliding hood for the sail locker.

 

The hull, mast and deck are painted white. The deck is entirely covered with self-adhesive anti-slip. The paint has a few chips at normal points of wear: at the stern (in the passage where you get on and off the boat through the skirt), on the cover of the sail locker and the anchor locker, at the davit and a place on the port side gangway (where the tender touches the deck each time it is hauled or launched). The anti-slip on the portholes is damaged.

 

Freshly installed nets (December 2023) go around the boat from the front and sunbrella dodgers close the rear (January 2024).

Interior design

It is a rather compartmentalized layout compared to more recent architectures. We don't feel locked in there though. The headroom is the strong point of this boat. We stand up everywhere! The saloon and cabins are spacious. The whole thing is bright and aesthetic. The touches of white highlight the teak woodwork.

The companionway is amidships. It is made of stainless steel and the steps are coated with an easy-to-clean non-slip coating, just like the floor. It overlooks the galley area to port and the chart table to starboard. A plexiglass offers a 180° panoramic view forward.

KITCHEN AREA

The kitchen is small but well ventilated at companionway level, with a hood and a fan. There is plenty of useful storage space. The seat at the bottom of the companionway (which encloses the keel axis) can be used as a work surface.

Card table

You can store lots of things in the huge map table and drawers. Tool boxes fit in the trunk under the seat.

Saloon under cockpit

The saloon under the cockpit is very spacious. It can accommodate many guests. The plexiglass at the bottom of the cockpit illuminates the room. There are two hull portholes whose watertightness is guaranteed by double plexiglass (one plexiglass on the outside of the hull and another on the inside). The bench seats are equipped with anti-roll canvases for night shifts. There are trunks on each side behind the bench seats and under the rear seats. The edges of the table fold up and slide on a rail. They can be shifted or removed completely.
