I'm sitting here with a glass of wine and enjoying that beautiful sunset, isn't that so nice? Now take a look at that side deck, nice and wide, easy to move around on this boat, great transition from cockpit to bow. The hand holds everything. the way down and look at the size of these scuppers it has scuppers all over this boat this boat is designed to take very very heavy weather now remember this is a
2003wait until you see this room it looks brand new come on i'll show you, just look at these folks look at the size of this wonderful space and I didn't tell you look at the quality of this wood look at the quality of everything here the boat literally looks like it came off the store floor jus It's absolutely beautiful here, starting on the right side.
I want to point out this birdseye maple that contracts beautifully with this teak plank. By the way, this is a solid teak plank. It's just a wonderful combination of woods that they're using here. to give you that really warm feeling it's a home from home literally a very very clean space with everything tucked away in here you have your tv and stereo system and also notice in the header here we have surround sound for the lounge and it looks um, sounds wonderful, you're going to like it a lot, so just look at this, look at these big beautiful windows that let in all this beautiful beautiful view and natural sunlight.
These teak scales that hide the hardware for your drapes and drapes are very, very tastefully done which blends beautifully with the classic design of this boat, we have a little seat here of course that has excellent storage space underneath for the bar and again check this out these double sliding glass doors here that just let all this light heavy construction in but they move very easily and again those big windows here on the starboard side are also beautiful ,beautiful and look at this i mean its a 2003 this is the original upholstery and it looks like its brand new and check out this coffee table its not that cool huh the teak fiddles so well made huh over here downstairs storage for a bar and some glasses and then this wonderful design very nice very unique yes I have not seen too many tables that look like this now here so here in the kitchen and look see gallia once again, which is the preference of many boaters, so whoever is preparing the meals is engaged with his friends and family in the lounge here again.
I love this and the satin finish throughout the boat gives it such a warm and comfortable feel nice to the touch uh solid solid teak fiddles that keep plates where they're supposed to be kept and a lot of really good stuff. menities here well let's start with this and look at that uh look at this look at the quality on this and look at how well it fits it's like a very very snug fit and this boat is exceptionally well built very very deep stainless steel sinks and the other The side of this is a cutting board so you don't waste any space notice how tight it is a grade cutting attachment and plenty of storage here everywhere there is storage storage here dry storage here you can store your paper towel and napkins and other bulk items in there like cereal that's ok full intercom system throughout the ship so whoever is on the bridge if you're looking for sandwiches or beer you don't have to run downstairs and ask for it that way and here and once again so much storage space on this ship is just and the name of the ship is monkey joe um talk to us when you get on board we'll tell you the story behind it and s really is really is very nice but when I open that look at this we have monkey joe plates isn't that nice oh just a nice little touch everywhere under here we have a built in fridge and freezer on the other side and, by the way they are both below zero they both have their individual compressors they don't work out of one compressor now right across from that is your trash compactor here and plenty of storage under your sink right here a full bench of drawers here you have a full oven three burner electric stove and not just a microwave but a convection microwave everything you need to prepare gourmet meals and wow your friends and family and if that's not enough storage check out all the storage here you have a full pantry here and upstairs we got two more drawers and another four drawer bank here and if that's not enough another pantry here man you could be gone for months and have enough Have food on board so you don't have to stop for long it's not nice it's just a beautiful feeling so imagine yourself in an anchorage somewhere and maybe the sun is setting a beautiful glow the sun reflecting off the water you have eagles up high and the shoreline there with a background of trees and rocks and typically beautiful bc and you are here in this space preparing a wonderful meal for your friends and family wow you could be very very happy in this space right now here on the pilot cabin this is another amazing place it's beautifully decorated it's very bright with all these big windows and it's the place where you can sit and have your lunch table here. so ideally set up so you can have lunch while you're on the go and have your friends and family here next to you as patron look again at the quality of this original upholstery and in such great condition and again look at this lovely beautiful antique table look at the inlay there , all handcrafted and satin finished and this also breaks down it's like a cocktail table if you like and right behind that I got a ton of storage two months the cabinets in there love it and so Of course we have wing doors on each side of the cockpit so when you're docking, uh, you can dock either side and be able to get out of the wireless remote that plugs right into this unit. so you can operate the craft from your wing, isn't that so cool?
Now here we have storage for letters and books and anything else you want. We'll start on the starboard side and we're towards port we've got your searchlight right here just to the left you've got your engine controls and on top you've got your gps navigator the way this boat is set up is with navionics as you can see , I'm I'm using my cell phone and I use navionics for this but it connects using this adapter to this display and it works wonderfully well you know the advantage here is that you can take it home huh lie down on your waypoints go back to the next day plug it in go in and you have your full screen right there it's great there these zf fly-by-wire controls have a bit of a lag but they have such a solid feel when you're operating the boat and the big five bladed props that really they bite when you start it up your Caterpillar engine analytical screens are right here and above, it has its autopilot with its rudder angle indicator as well as a rudder angle indicator analog rudder just below just to check and to make sure and to the left of that we've got your windlass control here of course you also have woodless controls on your deck and we'll show you a little bit later now this is great we'll you'll love this this is wrinkle it's a security system that sends status to the remote it tells you where your boat is lets you know if any of the doors that have sensors have been opened if there are sudden movements it has a fencing capability so that anyone operating or coming within a certain perimeter of the boat send you an alarm on their cell phone just a relatively new technology it's interesting that the last two boats we've done videos on have these sprinkler systems on them very very comfortable seat on the boat rudder is fully adjustable and the visibility from here is just fabulous I mean I can see the bow clearly and the visibility is good I just can't tell er better than this bow thruster here too right next to my left hand and the wiper controls here complete with wash functions also now in this space that we have a second helm seat which is right here that can be lifted up and moved you wanted your co-pilot to be right next to you and the visibility around you is amazing now i pointed that out earlier i can look back when i am docking the boat i can look back and see through the transom too.
The design is amazing, just amazing. You will love it now. I mentioned earlier that
jeffersonis a custom builder. This boat was custom designed for the first owner. As a usage, I wanted to incorporate many of the features seen on much larger boats and 80 to 90 foot boats. One of the things he has insisted on is increasing the size of the cabins. right down to the heads and beds you're really going to enjoy this now when you just look at this master oh my gosh this is absolutely gorgeous the first thing you'll notice here is this queen walks around the bed she walks no climbing or climbing on things walk around the bed very very comfortable and while lying in bed and reading andlooking at this beautiful mosaic work accentuated by this wonderful mosaic wonderful woods all around this mosaic is beautiful just wonderfully done i don't know how to explain it beyond that feeling of great warmth here it is huh and spacious i love the mirror or the headboard always give me kiss goodnight that's uh sounds like a couple of romantics and that's nice that's what browsing is all about isn't it i here i notice a big bank of drawers i have three drawers on top here and then down below we have these big cabinets that are lined with shelves a nightstand on both sides again with this beautiful wood and controls for your reading lights as well as your dome lights notice you have not one but two portlights that open here now when you're in a marina and it's time to sleep these curtains the same curtains you saw in the kitchen living room that beautifully accentuate this wood and contribute to this whole feeling classic ation of this from this ship now here we have a hanging locker and notice all the lockers here are lit right above that we have a tv and it's positioned in the right spot easily seen from the bed and a dvd player just below from the intercoms everywhere and in case you are lying in bed and whoever is in the kitchen is in the kitchen you can ask them to bring a sandwich or a glass of wine very convenient full length mirror here that's good and for here omg wait look at this look at the size of that locker it's huge and again lit up lots of places to hang stuff and store your shoes and store your long pants shorts socks and everything else all lined in cedar, just brilliantly done.
Now, each master stateroom should have its own bathroom and, uh, look at this, what a bathroom this is. I am approximately uh six years old. He's got this uh, fully enclosed stand-up shop. I love this tea plank. Oh my gosh, it's so beautiful. have a corian counter top with a molded in sink so you don't have a lot of leaks we have the storage right here you can put your soaps and shampoos and whatever you have in there well lit huh very very comfortable space and of course your plush toilet next to empty not a great space for a bathroom and oh man just standing here looking at this master cabin it's so beautiful just beautiful so that's it for the master cabin and bathroom and look at this uh this locker is vented because en beh And here is your separate ge washer and dryer.
It's not a combo unit folks, it's a separate washer and dryer. It's not that cool. Perfectly located between the cabins. it can also be made into an office if you want the top to fold out and you can turn it into a desk uh it's totally up to you uh but they wanted uh they wanted a kids cabin so there you have a very comfortable bunk bed under. lots of base storage we have two doors below and a hanger or above and reading lights for each of the berths moving forward we have the vip cabin once again we have a custom queen size bed beautiful beautiful wood here again notice the opening port lights that they provide a wonderful wonderful cross trap for ventilation and the hatch over the bed opens it up which is also screened in and this gives you plenty of ventilation. ceasing day head from the ladder here we have a fully enclosed stand up shower to keep the water where it is supposed to be a good seat toilet with a vacuum sink sink large mirror with storage under a boat very very comfortable this would be a big family boat you know and that's what they've used it for up until now but now the family has grown and gone and they're looking for something a little bit smaller so follow me up to the deck of the boat now so come out the wing door here. on the starboard side before we go to the bow just want to point out that we have these gunwale doors just outside the two cockpit side doors very very handy to have them here a number of ways you can board this boat Now , as we walk forward, we're going to go across this Portuguese bridge and up onto the bow, so look at the hardware on this bow. it is being towed if that should ever be the case and no o ne but two bow rollers now very often you see a bow roller with two separate rollers these are completely separate and ground rigging for a serious boat like this we have a bruce with no less than 400 of 3 8 stainless chain 3 8 galvanized chain and also a stainless steel anchor with 200 feet of nylon trail as you noted in the cockpit we could raise and lower the anchor from there but we also have switches deck here so you can do it right where the anchors are. actually located, the searchlight is remotely connected to both rudder stations, both upper and lower and, yes, just a wide expanse of a dex.
I also want to point out that your wash will be here and you can wash your anchor as it is uh as it comes from the bottom right here we have a hatch that opens to the vip cabin and this is very cool I like this I really like it actually right here perfectly placed to sit here and when you're underway just watch the world go by listen to the spl the ash from the bow wave coming off the bow is a great spot especially on a beautiful day like today now before you get on to the deck of the boat, also wanted to point out, first of all, notice how the windows are tilted back here for the cockpit and also notice that there is a ridge above the windows to help keep out frost for fall and winter boating , but it also keeps out the rain so it's a purpose built boat to sail well in very heavy weather now notice the portuguese bridge here too just closing it this is great it helps break any er serious wave that may be coming over the bow guarding the windows in the cockpit okay follow me we're going up on the deck of the boat and we'll show you what's going on up there so look at the size of the deck on this boat, will you?
It's huge absolutely huge now imagine this when that boat is in the water you have all this space to entertain you could put teak tables in here you could put lounging pads you could put various things up here and you have plenty of room left and right here look this beautiful storage bench under the bench and picture yourself sitting here with a couple a couple of tables and chairs over there maybe a bigger table here with some more derbs and check this out hey we have an outdoor kitchen here what great is that and down here we have a fridge freezer for ice cubes and underneath storage for additional food products and drinks if you wish this is just a great place for outdoor entertaining especially now here we have a Nick Jackson 1250 and will lift over 1200lbs which is more than enough to put this filthy in the water.
Fully functional boom extension up and down to position on the stern just over the top of the swim rack if you are in tight spaces where you really have the boat tied up and just look at this absolutely beautiful tinder center redova r cockpit is electric start electric bilge gps chart plotter 40 horsepower yamaha as this will take you where you want to go and has the convenience of a built in aluminum fuel tank you don't even have to worry with it because it's already there for you , just a beautiful, beautiful piece of equipment, also notice how the weight of the cable is contained in its own stainless steel container so it doesn't move very well thought out now up here at the upper helm you have great visibility from these uh very, very comfortable seats um you got a destroyer stainless steel wheel right here the same controls the setup controls you had underneath, all the necessary engine scans are here, replicating from below, uh, trim tabs, bow thruster search light. bhf radio and a place to plug in your ipad or whatever uh whatever device you have your navionics loaded on of course we have a compass here and of course we have an intercom that works with the bridge and d also to the main state room not so nice absolutely beautiful we have some power outlets up here in case you want to run a back up search light and these uh these seats are very very comfortable very luxurious fully adjustable up and down Down fore and aft with these nice footrests to rest your feet in under dash storage and the dash is arranged very ergonomically.
Really good space for a lot more instrumentation in there. If you want, we also have your GPS up here and your autopilot. if you choose to operate from here this is a beautiful beautiful boat and you feel totally in control and command and just loving this world going through this all the scenery and the beautiful beautiful bc coastline to sit here and watch the world go by its beautiful amazing you have great visibility you are very high in the water great visibility for logs or anything else that might be in the water but you just experience the wind in your face as you drive along this beautiful bc coast here we are in the engine room and There's a lot to talk about so I'm not going to take a lot of time here you can get all the specs on the caliber website with the specs under this boat but while we're here I want to point out a few things and we'll start aft and work our way up First of all, look at these dual register filters, one, one for each motor, and look at the pressure gauges on each one as well.
Now the advantage of having dual track cores is that you can change on the fly if a filter starts to clog you can change it without having to stop the boat and clean the filter. My arm rests on this nine kilowatt generator set. genset with a sound shield the engine room is sound shielded as well I just sent this notice that uh uh it's turbocharged then cooled uh so these are Cat C12s putting out 700 horsepower Strength aside, now you might think it's going to be a big gas guzzler. not the hull like we p The above mentioned is very very efficient you will be able to get a little less than a nautical mile per gallon which is very efficient for a boat this weight and beam and this is important the owner of this ship is very skilled in mechanics, as you can see.
For the cleanliness of this engine room, all hoses are double clamped and all hoses and clamps that I can see here are in exceptionally good condition. if you can't get to your engines for maintenance you won't with an engine room this size you'll be very comfortable doing your regular maintenance and checks your daily checks down here is an engine room any owner would feel very very comfortable moving, well then I tell you folks what a spectacular 2003 boat but my goodness she looks like she just walked off the factory floor both outside and inside a wonderful stable room. he 68,000-pound boat with a beam of 16 feet and an overall length of 57 feet and a strong sheen that gives it extra stability in the worst waves of the sea this boat is ideal for sailing with a family or with friends three cabins two bathrooms all that you would like to travel on a ship for long periods of time up and down this beautiful coastline that we have and you know what this ship can be yours all you have to do is give us a call come on board it will be very, I'm so glad you did
