1993 Vagabond Ketch

16 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

A ladder leads from the center cockpit to the spacious saloon. To starboard is a proper forward facing nav station. Just forward of the nav station is a graceful curved settee that opens into a double berth or just a great place to sit back, put your feet up and read or watch TV. Opposite, on the port side of the saloon is an L-shaped settee around a beautiful wood dining table.

Forward from the saloon is the guest suite. To port is an en suite head with shower. Opposite are plenty of ventilated lockers. The berths are 2 singles with the foot of the port berth over the foot of the starboard berth. The starboard berth pulls out to make a cozy double.

A penninsula to port separates the saloon from the galley which runs aft to the owner’s suite. In the penninsula is a liquor locker convenient to the galley, fridge, freezer, saloon and dinette. A pull out ironing board is cleverly concealed in the liquor locker.

To starboard from the saloon a passageway leads aft through the owner’s head to the owner’s stateroom. Just aft of the nav station in the passageway is a pilot berth currently used as a shelf for storage and a second refrigerator. Below the pilot berth is the generator in a sound and heat protected enclosure concealed by beautiful teak doors.

The owner’s stateroom features huge athwartship berth with a view through the classic stern portlights.
