The three cabin layout, with a fourth crew cabin forward, provides comfortable stateroom accommodations for six guests. The owner’s stateroom is forward with centerline queen island berth, ensuite head with stall shower, beautiful custom cabinetry, workstation with flat-screen television and ample hanging, drawer and locker storage storage. Two mirror image aft staterooms, each with ensuite head, are outfitted with sizeable double berths, inner spring mattresses and plenty of hanging and shelf storage.

The spacious main salon, also outfitted with custom cabinetry, flat-screen television and comfortable leatherette fabric is the perfect gathering area for owner and guests. Seating for six or more surrounds her dining table to port while her galley, quite suitable for the gourmet, is to starboard. The galley sports double stainless sinks, four-burner ENO propane stove with oven, microwave, dual standup Vitrifrigo refrig/freezer units, custom pantry storage and plenty of countertop space.

Equipment on Board:

Her meticulous owner has invested over $750,000 to bring this 523 to complete bluewater racer/cruiser capability. Upgraded to offshore specifications to meet the rigorous standards of the 2010 Newport-to-Bermuda Race, she took 2nd in class (of 15) on her first attempt. Her equipment includes Quantum Racing sails, upgrade to Harken roller-furling system, all-electric Harken primary and halyard winches, generator, air-conditioning, Espar heat, watermaker, dual inverter system and much, much more.
