|This vessel was designed by William Garden and built by the Vic Frank Boat Co of Seattle, Washington of FRP (Fiberglass)-covered wood in 1974. The vessel is a twin screw, diesel powered, pilothouse trawler.
Stepping onto the vessel from the painted teak swim platform and stepping through the transom gate, there is a large cockpit that is planked in teak. There are access hatches giving access to the generators, FRP mufflers and the rudder posts. The forward area of the cockpit is protected by the overhang of the boat deck from above. There are two (2) large, what appear to be, pedestal berths that have foam and vinyl cushions, and foam and vinyl pillows for lounging and relaxing. Below these pedestals are the engines. These disassemble and open, giving access to the engines. Through a doorway is entry into the main cabin.
On the starboard side of the main cabin is an L-shaped, leather sofa and on the port side is a convertible table that opens to seat twelve. Just forward of the leather sofa is a stairway rising to the pilothouse. The galley would start at this point on the port side. The aft end of the galley is dedicated to a wet bar, with a sink, storage, beverage dispenser and a built-in TV in the overhead cabinetry. The galley runs along the port side of the vessel, with more amenities than most vessels a dishwasher, trash compactor, a full-size (house style) side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, and a disposal built into the sink, with multiple cabinets and storage areas acting as a pantry. On the starboard side is the owner's stateroom, with a walk-around, double berth athwartships. On the forward side of this cabin is an in-suite enclosed marine toilet and shower.
Continuing forward of the galley area, there is a second enclosed marine toilet. Opposite the companionway is the first guest stateroom. It has over/under berths, with the lower berth being athwartships. Continuing forward is a second guest stateroom, with over/under berths and these parallel the hull. On the port side is a utility room with a washer / dryer, storage and other convenience items. Stepping through the next bulkhead is the fourth cabin, which would be called a crew's cabin. It has over/under berths paralleling the hull on the starboard side. On the port side is the third enclosed marine toilet with shower. Continuing forward thru the forward bulkhead would be considered the forepeak, with the chain locker and a significant amount of storage in this area. Throughout the vessel there are various hanging lockers, cabinets, drawers and other storage areas.
Beneath the cabin sole there are access panels to the different bilge areas. All the plumbing and equipment for the marine toilets are located beneath this cabin sole. The water maker and compressor are accessed through the second hatch. Storage for dive tanks and storage for the beverage dispenser, water heaters, access to the stabilizers and the pressure water pump are located in the third hatch. The fourth hatch gives access to the tanks for fuel and water as well as their filters.
This vessel has had a large amount of time and money spent maintaining and upgrading it since 1974. It is a unique vessel and the appearance of this vessel creates its own stature and image, with the high flared bow and comfortable access throughout the vessel.
