Accommodation and Overview
DREAMCHASER has a rich interior feel due to extensive Burl wood throughout with bookmatching and high gloss finish. Originally constructed to be the builder "show model", combined with the current proud ownership and continual upgrading, this pristine yacht is a pleasure to tour.
There are three king berth staterooms, each having a separate stairway down from the main deck. All have ensuite heads, two of which have bidets and Jacuzzi tubs, the forward stateroom head has a large shower. In addition there is a 4th guest cabin with upper and lower twin berths. On the main deck there is a day-head. Completely separated and accessed from a foredeck hatch is a single berth crew quarter which has a head. sink, and air-conditioning.
Some of her other features are full walk-around side decks, covered overhead from amidships aft. The bulwarks are topped with a thick teak, varnished cap rail with 2" polished stainless safety railings from bow to stern. The entire boat was painted during a 2012 exterior refit that included the addition of a custom hardtop, new flybridge venturi windscreen, full bridge enclosure (poly panels with soft aft curtains), enlarged forward deckhouse windows, extension of the flybridge deck (providing coverage for the aft deck settee), and refreshing of the teak decking.
A large and open aft deck has a U-shaped, plush cushioned settee around a generous teak dining table with two fold up expanding leaves. Two teak cushioned chairs with an ottoman are just ahead of the table. Euro-styled curved stairways lead from either side down to the transom platform with stainless hoop railings.
The flybridge is another highlight area with a large C-shaped settee and dining table to the portside. Forward is the helm console with twin Stidd helm chairs and to starboard is a nice lounge/couch followed aft by console containing refrigerator, sink, and Jenn-Aire grill. Above is mounted a flat-panel TV (HD sat dome and upgraded AV throughout the vessel). Further aft there are two teak steamer chaise lounges and a hot-tub shaded by a tailored tent canvas. Out towards the bow is an oversized sun lounge cushion.
On the main deck the salon has a full sized leather couch to the portside with a dark wood and glass, rectangular cocktail table. Across to starboard are two comfortable arm chairs, one with ottoman. Between the chairs a built-in cabinet houses a pop-up lift with large, curved HD TV. Forward to the portside is a floating stairway to the bridge and just beyond a teak and holly landing foyer for a side deck wing door. A mirrored alcove and granite counter is forward with two wine coolers just below. Here is also the top of the stairway down to the mid stateroom.
Moving forward to the portside is the day-head. Next forward is a raised platform, C-shaped dinette that is conveniently next to the lower helm station. Just aft and across is the open galley with stainless front appliances and a Teak & Holly sole. Granite countertops and upper cabinets with lighting beneath. There is a door to close off this whole forward area from the salon if privacy is preferred. Just ahead of the galley to the side of the helm station is a pantagraph wing door providing easy access to the side deck and bow. Forward is the stairway to the bow stateroom.
Although the layout preview is complete, there are many additional features which will be detailed in the following individual sections.
