A great Northwest Performance Cruiser! Hard to find at a great price for a 2006!!
This near new (only 250 hours)two-cabin layout provides a nice-sized double cabin forward; a comfortable saloon with U-shaped dinette to starboard and settee with nav station to port; a relatively large head with separate shower recess immediately aft, opposite an L-shaped galley to starboard; and a very large double master cabin aft on the starboard side, providing fore-and-aft or transverse sleeping arrangements depending on personal preferences.
The saloon has a bright and warm ambience, with the numerous windows, hatches and lighting offsetting the teak veneers. There is comfortable seating around the central table. The table can be lifted high up the mast compression upon which it is mounted, in a novel approach to providing access to storage spaces and cleaning. Or it can be reset low for use with the U-shaped settee as a double berth.
Another thoughtful approach to space utilization is evident at the aft end of the settee to port, where Jeanneau has provided a chart table on slides and a small bench seat at the aft end, allowing the navigator to decide if he or she wants to work facing forward or aft. This arrangement also allows the settee to be used as a single berth if required.
Between the nav station and the bathroom is a large hanging locker, which will be handy for wet weather gear, etc. The bathroom is just big enough to house the shower stall with molded GRP bench seat over the manual head and there is access to the large storage area in the port quarter. A door divides this area from the vanity unit with sink and storage cupboards forward.
The galley has twin sinks with pressurized hot/cold water supply, two-burner stove/oven and a large (37 Gal.) top-opening refrigeration unit. A plexiglass splashback shields the forward end of the bench space. There is decent cupboard space for provisions, cookware and crockery and storage space throughout the boat is quite good. This boat is due for new batterys and the seller has agreed to renew them for the next owner!!! Owner has new boat and is ready to sell... Just reduced $11,000 price makes this a great value!!!
