Vessel Walkthrough

Enter through port or starboard wheelhouse doors into the large wheelhouse. Aft
through a door is the large galley-up, featuring full size appliances, plentiful storage and a dinette that seats many of your friends and family. The aft section of this area has plenty of comfortable seating for relaxation. The aft deck is just out a door starboard. Forward out of the wheelhouse and down a few steps are the accommodations. There are 4 full staterooms with the master all
the way aft featuring a full size king size bed on a center line and a large dressing room. The
flybridge is accessed from the wheelhouse up a ladder.


The full beam main salon combined with the tastefully decorated interior, gives the sensation you are on a much larger yacht.  At the forward end of this space is the formal dining table, the entertainment center, the wet bar, and built-in custom desk.

There are 4 full staterooms with the the master stateroom which the aft 1/3 of the lower deck. It is one of the largest you will find on any 65' yacht. It features a centerline walk around king size bed with a custom mattress, a large dressing room with sink and vanity, lots of hanging storage and drawer space, and a large ensuite bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and custom sink with gold faucet. 

The Galley-up also takes advantage of the full beam.  Updated Stainless Steel appliances and granite countertops with updated backsplashes and a breakfast bar that separates the galley from the main salon .  A large dinette is located conveniently next to the galley. 

There is a door between here and the salon and also one aft of the wheelhouse that allows you to cruise after dark from the lower station with lights on in the galley and salon.  The
flybridge is accessed from the wheelhouse up a ladder.


Hatteras flush deck wheelhouses are hard to beat. They have excellent visibility, plenty of
vertical dash space to flush mount the navigational electronics, and sliding pilothouse doors port and starboard. These doors allow direct access to the forward side decks, making single handed docking a breeze. From this area you will find a ladder leading to the large flybridge, a doorway leading to the galley, and a stairway leading to the accommodations.
