Forward in the bow is the anchor locker, just aft is the private owners' suite with a center double berth and ensuite head with separate shower. Hanging closet and drawers for storage. Moving aft on port is the guest quarters with two bunks. One bunk folds up to allow more headroom in lower or to convert into a sitting area. A large hanging closet and small vanity for guests' belongings or additional storage. Across to starboard is the guest head.
Moving up three steps to the lower helm and saloon area: lower helm is starboard with sliding door just aft. To port is the U-shaped galley: a long counter with overhead storage and wine glasses, the 4-burner Wedgewood propane stove and oven look out so you may enjoy the view and the side-by-side stainless sinks look forward. The fridge and freezer are starboard aft of the sliding door. Above the fridge is an Emerson Microwave oven and wine rack. (A U-Line icemaker is in the lazarette). The helm and galley are open to the salon -- while underway you can relax on the L-shaped settee or in one of the new swivel chairs.
Access to the engine room is either via a hatch in the saloon floor or under the stairs at the lower helm.
The salon and lower helm areas have new carpet; shades with valences add privacy with a finishing touch. The teak throughout the interior of the boat appears to be in very good condition. Double doors lead to the aft deck, which is fully enclosed for inclement weather or screens that fit the window areas for the summer months. Aft deck has access to the lazarette and a transom gate for boarding off the swim step. A ladder to starboard accesses the flybridge and boat deck. The flybridge has full controls, guest seating and a captains’ chair at center.
The side decks are teak and weather-protected by a bridge overhang. They are wide enough for easy passage around the house. Wide decks, high bulwarks, sturdy teak railings with netting for pets all contribute to staying dry and feeling safe while boarding or docking.
This boat is outfitted to enjoy as a live-aboard, gunkhole in the Sound or San Juan Islands, or cruise comfortably to Alaska!
Lucky Lady will need the settee cushions recovered, some brightwork varnished, the radar display installed, and furnace needs a new switch.
The boathouse is equipped with washer, dryer, refrigerator and freezer. The outside dimensions are 20’x60’, the well size is 15.5’x50’. The floats on both sides will need to be replaced. The front floats have already been replaced. Seller said the new floats would cost approximately $10,000. This is not firm and a prospective buyer should get their own estimate.
If a buyer wishes to buy just the boat or boathouse, they will be separated, however the boathouse will not be sold before the boat is sold.
If the new owners wish to keep the boat/boathouse at the Port Orchard Yacht Club, they will need to joint the club. Information on joining the club can be found at .
