BLUE TOO offers three staterooms for the Owner in a very spacious low profile raised deck salon/pilothouse, with large full beam lower salon. Accommodations for four/five crew forward of the galley with a comfortable crew mess.
One of the greatest aspects is the two-cockpit design, with the private owner’s cockpit aft, while the large center cockpit offers a superb seating, sailing comfort and room for dining. Just aft of the seating area are walkways to the side deck, with the helm located just aft.
The interior is teak with raised panel joinery, with elegant soft goods and bright, well ventilated accommodations. All interior lighting replaced with LED.
Upon entering from the spacious cockpit, you are greeted by the delightful Deck Salon with a large U-shaped settee with comfortable seating for six to port with a cocktail table that converts for dining. Opposite to starboard on the forward side, is the lower navigation and communication station that may be retracted from sight when not in use, while aft is a full navigation station, and adjacent facing outboard is teak desk.
A few steps down from the Deck Salon, with a gracious stairway,provides access to this well apportioned Main Salon, while the Deck Salon provides an open and airy feel. On the port side is a large seating area with built in sofas and cocktail table, with a dining area to the starboard side of the full beam salon and new TV.
Located forward of the dining area is the access to the Galley and crew mess. Spacious and well designed with a crew dinette on starboard and well-equipped galley on port. As expected, the galley offers built in refrigeration, freezer and storage for extended entertaining and cruising. Specific equipment is listed below.
The owner and guest staterooms are in the desirable area of the aft section of the yacht served by a central corridor from the deck salon.
The full beam master provides a full walk around queen bed to port, L shaped settee to starboard and bureau. Double door closets provide hanging locker space with cabinets provide additional storage. Continuing aft the landing for the stairs to the private cockpit, splits the master head with a large shower room to port featuring a marble shower with teak seats, sink and mirror vanity. On starboard side the split head area offers the WC with toilet and sink.
On either side of the central corridor from the deck salon are the guest staterooms. On Port is a queen bed stateroom complete with nice hanging locker, bureau and ensuite head with stall shower. Opposite on Starboard, the guest stateroom features side by side single beds, hanging locker and ensuite head with stall shower.
Just forward of the Crew Mess and Galley, the Captain’s stateroom is to starboard, with a full double and drop down pullman berth, ensuite head with stall shower. Opposite to port is a over/under crew cabin with good storage and ensuite head with stall shower. A single berth is available in the forepeak if needed. Deck access from both the forepeak and crew mess areas.
The engine room was completely gutted and redesigned by Rob Doyle Design and the Crew in 2016 refit at Holland Jachtbouw: Access is Aft near centerline and there is a port side deck flush hatch entrance.
