The heads are of a good size and have a macerator toilet which can be discharged
to sea or to a holding tank concealed under the counter top. It has an antique corner
handbasin and a stand up shower area. The walls are finished in light grey and white
marble effect “Shower Wall” panelling with varnished teak and sapele shelves and
surfaces. The ceiling is varnished light oak panelling with recessed LED lighting.
There is a portlight and also a frosted screen (which forms the back to the companionway
steps) which make this area very light and airy. There are two teak cupboards for
storage with inset mirror doors and there is also a full length mirror. (not glass!)
The shower is on a trigger control and is set at head height. There is an acrylic
shower screen which folds out from the wall if needed and a small radiator which
keeps it toasty warm when the heater is on.
The diesel heater is located behind a removable panel and there is access to the
mast support and pipework behind the full length mirror. The shower tray, which drains
to the grey water tank, hinges upwards for access to the bilges and propshaft below.
This is a huge cabin with masses of storage and a very comfortable double bed. It
really is luxury at sea and we love it very much.
The doors and furniture are high gloss teak and sapele offset by white gloss tongue
and groove effect ceiling and side walls and ash locker tops and end walls which
makes it light and airy. There are also big sapele turned spindles at the foot end
of the bed which adds to the impression of a four poster bed but they are really
hand holds! There are 4 side portlights and 2 Goiot opening ports set into the transom
and also a large Lewmar hatch with smoked finish and quick release stainless steel
security bars so it is possible to get a good airflow through the cabin for ventilation.
It also has a double radiator.
There is a huge amount of storage space:
A wardrobe with double teak doors and interior light, hanging space and deep shelving
12 deep drawers with beautiful varnished sapele fronts with brass fittings
2 enormous lockers either side of the bed
There is a large area below the bed which we use to store spare sails, ropes, the
drogue and many other items. The bed is hinged across halfway along its length so
there is easy access to this storage without removing the mattress or bedding. (We
also prop the bed end up regularly to air the mattress).
A further 4 lockers under the steps and wardrobe floor.
It would be possible to use the locker tops each side as additional bunks for children
on inflatable or roll out mattresses (not included), or a cot, although additional
restraints would be needed if at sea.
The master cabin/stateroom and the aft heads are adjacent but not en-suite so that
the heads can be used at sea without accessing the stateroom.
The Master Cabin
Varnished wooden pelmets run the length of the cabin on each side with concealed
LED strip lighting behind. This is switchable from the head of the bed as well as
near the door.
The bed has two high density foam mattresses pushed together (any larger will not
get through the companionway!). It is a double size bed (4ft 6 ins wide) with individual
high intensity LED reading lights on each side along with 2 x 240V sockets and USB
charging sockets for phones etc
There is a beautiful L-shaped desk of varnished sapele with inlaid dark green gold
embossed leatherette and a comfortable upholstered swivel chair. There is shelf below
the desk for a printer and documents and the side of the desk hinges upwards for
easy access to the printer. It has 4 x 240V sockets.
The master cabin has a decorative ash floor with access to bilges and propshaft/stuffing
box below where there is also an automatic bilge pump and space to store maintenance
materials. When shut, the door of this cabin seals to form a watertight bulkhead
in case of emergency.
