Construction/Layout

Construction:

The hull is solid hand layed up fiberglass with thicknesses up to one inch near the keel.  The decks were fiberglass cored with small squares of balsa. Balsa was used for the core of the deckhouse also. The integrated full keel is part of the hull design with the typical Brewer-Bite and keel-hung rudder.

Interior Layout:
Starting all the way forward below decks is the bow cabin with access to the chain locker. There’s a Pullman berth to port with sail locker underneath, 3 drawers and step-seat with drop-in storage. There are two opening bronze port lights and a Bomar deck hatch.

The original saloon featured pilot berth on each side, each having two opening port lights and plenty of storage underneath. The large saloon table can be adjusted to convert in extra sleeping area when requested. Opposite the dining area to starboard is another bunk with storage underneath. The Bomar hatch provides plenty of ventilation and light.  

A starboard head has a pump toilet and integrated shower. A single sink has pressurized hot and cold running water.

Opposite to port is the galley with custom Corian countertops and integral sink. Hot and cold pressurized water is available at the sinks.  A Force 10 3-burner stove including oven with broiler. Facing forward are two built in build iceboxes with DC refrigeration in the freezer with a dampered frig. Above are 3 cabinets for additional storage.

The pilothouse is large and well lit. It has three windows on each side and four forward facing windows. The two outside forward windows are operable and open to allow ventilation. These were all replaces with custom fabricated aluminum windows in 2006.  A large navigation table is on the port with a convertible U-shape dining area to starboard. Access to the engine room by lift-up sole boards. There are two hanging lockers aft of the navigation seat.  A new navigation console houses the electrical distribution panel and helm controls and wheel.  There’s a opening window to forward and a hatch above the indoor navigation area. The exit is by a Teak ladder.

Aft is the owners cabin with a double berth, opening port light and locker space below. There are 5 drawers under the berth. Opposite is an enclosed head and vanity sink with hot and cold pressurized water and plenty of cabinet storage. The holding tank is below the sink. Just facing aft is a hanging locker with additional storage space behind a door. 

The interior has been extensively redone in 2010/11 with maple tambour with the original teak accents. New flooring and headliner have been added also.
