You begin your tour of this remarkable yacht at her fully enclosed raised aft cockpit. Spacious enough for a cocktail party with a crowd, this is a wonderful place to entertain outside but stay protected from the weather. The helm has excellent all-around visibility. It even features its own reefer next to the helm chair big enough for two to enjoy while you cruise!

Two steps down takes you to a saloon that belongs on a fifty footer. With glass all around and sparkling teak and holly sole this is a bright and cheerful place even on a rainy day! The use of of European-style cabinetry and lighting add to her feeling of sophisticated elegance.

The large modern galley is on this level which allows the chef to not feel isolated from family and guests while whipping up that special dish!

Continuing forward and down two more steps brings you to the spacious guest cabin. It features large twin bunk beds and lots of storage. In a remarkable design feature Chris-Craft eliminated the dreaded V berth and instead used that space for the large guest head. It features a walk-in shower bigger than most ashore with a skylight overhead. You'd better make sure the water tanks are full as your guests will not want to ever stop finding a reason to use it!

Head back to the saloon and continue aft to the private full width master stateroom. Featuring a queen platform bed it has the same sleek European cabinetry and even a flat screen TV. There is a spacious master head that features a Vacuflush head and a separate shower stall to complete this wonderful live-aboard space.

Broker's Comments

Over $80,000 was recently spent on this remarkable yacht to update her to serve as an elegant, comfortable live aboard while retaining her offshore cruising capability. Her current mooring on Lake Union is transferable and features an unobstructed view of the lake. It's within walking distance to all of the south lake restaurants and watering holes, and the bus stop is across the street for the short commute to work downtown. So chuck the car and enjoy this remarkable opportunity to live the "sleepless in Seattle" lifestyle. And when you're ready for a change of scenery you can head off for a day or a month in this tough, seaworthy yacht!
