Many years ago when they were sailing a smaller Bristol, the owner's of "Chesapeake" were anchored in the Mobjack Bay, on the Chesapeake. They were sharing the anchorage with a beautiful blue yawl. They decided that evening, this beautiful blue yawl was the boat of their dreams.
Several years later and 20 years ago they purchased "Chesapeake" the same beautiful yawl that was the boat of their dreams.
She is a classic yacht that has had constant maintenance and upgrades its entire life. Items and systems have continually been approached from the perspective of how can this be upgraded, improved or modernized. This has been done by an owner who is a knowledgeable yachtsman and engineer. Very nice, classic yacht.

Continuing forward to starboard is a stack of drawers and a double hanging locker. Opposite is an enclosed head accessible from either the main cabin or the forward cabin.The head contains sink, telephone shower, and Raritan manual head. The head is also equipped with an Electra-San unit which discharge to a 20 gal holding tank. The holding tank is fitted for either deck discharge (with freshwater rinse deck connection) or overboard via manual pump. The cabin sole in the head area is molded fiberglass pan with drain and shower sump pump.
The V-berth has a seat between the two berths as well as an insert to convert the berth into a double. There are ample drawers and lockers in this area, as well as a full length shelve on both sides. All the way forward is the anchor rode/chain locker.
All of the interior light fixtures have been replaced. Many of the fixtures have been upgraded with efficient LED bulbs. The dome lights have both a white and a red bulb (for night sailing). There are also floor level courtesy lights throughout the interior.
