Main Salon

A doorway leads from the port aft side of the wheelhouse to the main salon. The main salon is charming, comfortable, yet clean and uncluttered. Along the starboard side is an L-shaped settee with a custom built, teak varnished, hi-lo table that can accommodate up to 8 for dining. At both ends of the settee are teak chests which serve as end tables, each with a drawer, cabinet, and lamp.

Opposite on the port side of the salon is a second, smaller raised settee. At the aft end is a teak cabinet with a drinks' fridge. At the forward end is a movable teak china storage cabinet. At the forward end of the salon, starboard, is a floor to ceiling teak cabinet which houses a large Samsung TV and stereo equipment. Adjacent is a sound proof door which leads down to the engine room.

The main salon has a teak sole which is covered with a bound, removable Sisal carpet, the same carpeting as can be found throughout the yacht.  The overhead has white panels with teak battens that can all be removed for access to wiring, etc. Three circular lights with teak rims and decorative stainless-steel protective guards are mounted overhead along the centerline in a section of the ceiling that has full length teak grab rails on either side. In addition, there are several small LED lights overhead as well as:
(3) Kerfort roll-down windows: one port, one starboard and one aft which looks out onto the boat deck
(2) Large fixed windows to port and starboard

The salon’s walls are finished in a custom designed, hand tooled, faux leather wallpaper. Windows have off white drapes with coral colored “tie backs” which are in keeping with the traditional feel of the yacht.

Lower Accommodations

ASSIGNATION has three cabins and three heads plus a convertible settee in a crew mess (forward). Her versatile accommodations can be used for 2 owners, 2 guests, and 2 to 3 crew or additional guests.

The full beam master stateroom is below – aft of the salon and forward of the cockpit. Its location affords the owners privacy yet easy accessibility from both the salon and the cockpit.

On the starboard aft side of the stateroom is a walk-around queen berth with drawers for storage underneath it. On either side of the berth are built-in night tables – white with teak drawers. Mounted over the berth are handsome, silver gimballed lights – imported from Italy – and indicative of the high quality of light fixtures and hardware throughout the yacht.

Forward to port is a large, walk-in cedar lined closet with a safe. On the forward bulkhead of the stateroom is a Samsung TV. Adjacent (starboard) is a doorway to the ensuite head with stall shower, and teak with inlaid Birdseye Maple wash basin and countertop
Teak drawers and storage cabinet under countertop, mirrored cabinet above
New Dometic MasterFlush toilet with adjustable flush
Tile flooring
(2) Circular LED lights with stainless protective guards
Opening overhead hatch
(1) Dogged opening port light
Doorway and steps (port aft) which lead up to cockpit

On the port side of the master there is a vanity/desk with chair incorporated into the cabinetry. There are also six large teak drawers under the countertop as well as two cabinets above the countertop with louvered doors. On the starboard side are (2) additional cabinets, all of which provide a great deal of storage for the master stateroom. The walls are covered in a synthetic burlap print wallpaper. The teak floor here is covered in a very attractive, natural sisal carpet.

Guest Stateroom #1

Located below and forward of the salon on the starboard side is a twin berth guest stateroom which is as nicely finished as the master. Between the berths is a night stand. Under the berths are drawers for storage. Over the berths, both inboard and outboard, are large storage cabinets with louvered doors. Forward outboard and to starboard is a large double door, cedar lined closet. At the most forward end of the stateroom is a door which leads to the ensuite head. Although smaller than that of the master it has the same high standard of fit and finish. In addition to having a separate stall shower, it has a teak and birdseye maple sink and countertop with a mirrored cabinet above, four double door louvered cabinets, a Dometic toilet, and tile flooring. A circular overhead light with teak trim and a stainless-steel protective guard, as well as a dogged opening port, provide plenty of light in this area. The wallpaper and carpeting in the guest stateroom are the same as in the master.


Opposite to Guest Stateroom #1 to port is the bright and immaculate galley. It has white cabinets with teak moldings, teak flooring, and white, removable overhead panels with teak battens.

In addition, it has the following:
Fisher and Paykel double door refrigerator
GE “Café” convection/conventional microwave
GE “Café” full-size oven
New Kitchen Aid induction cooktop
Large stainless-steel sink outboard to port
Storage compartment for bulky items
Storage under hatch in sole

Crew Mess

Further forward of the galley and guest stateroom is a crew mess. It has a long L-shaped settee to port which pulls out to make into an additional berth. Also in this area are:
1. Folding serving table on forward bulkhead
2. Cabinets with louvered double doors above settee
3. Hand crafted teak spice rack (forward starboard bulkhead)
4. (2) Circular lights with teak trim and guards
5. Dogged port with deadlight
6. Recessed cubbies
7. New Asko stacked washer/dryer concealed behind a louvered door

Guest Stateroom #2/Crew Stateroom

Forward and further along the companionway is the 2nd quest or crew stateroom (depending on how one wishes to use it). There is a V-berth all the way forward which can accommodate two. Under the front of the berth are two teak drawers. Above to port and starboard are long shelves, as well as an additional upper shelf on the port side. At the bow end of the stateroom is an access hatch to the chain locker. At the aft end of the stateroom on the starboard side are steps which lead up to the foredeck above. Adjacent (starboard) is a doorway which leads to the ensuite head. Opposite the door to the head is a louvered double door hanging locker. Aft of this on the port side is a door that leads to a stall shower compartment. As in all other staterooms, there is plenty of light, both natural and other in this area:
1. (2) Silver lamps mounted on the bulkheads at the foot of the V-berth.
2. (2) Circular ceiling lights (same as in other staterooms).
3. Opening ports, port and starboard.
4. Large opening hatch above berth.


The flybridge can be reached from both interior steps that lead up from the starboard side of the pilothouse or via an exterior, custom fabricated, stainless stairway (with teak steps and stainless-steel handrails) from the starboard boat deck. This stairway is gradual, safe, and easy to navigate. At the top of this stairway is a security swing door for children and pets. Four additional areas on the yacht can also be secured: Slide in panels at the port and starboard side decks and slide-in panels between the aft outboard stanchions (port and starboard) and the boat deck.

The flybridge upper helm station has full controls and instrumentation as well as both redundant and stand-alone electronics. Computer screen and gauges have a plexi cover over them. There is a compass mounted on the forward console. At the console are the electronic CAT displays, radar screen, bow thruster toggle, and throttle controls. There is a spoked destroyer-type wheel here. This area is covered by a stoutly built Bimini with an aluminum fame and canvas top. An additional “fly” with removable supports can be attached to the aft end of the Bimini to provide shade for the entire bridge deck.

Aft of the steering console are two custom pedestal mounted helm chairs. To starboard outboard is a built-in settee with storage underneath. On the centerline at the aft end of the helm area is the yacht’s mast. Mast has a large ship’s bell, 2 radar scanners and a SAT TV dome – plus navigation lights at the top. The mast can be lowered to allow for an inside passage to the Great Lakes.

On the after end of the bridge deck there are two fore and aft facing settees with storage under each, and a varnished table – a perfect spot for alfresco or protected dining depending on the weather. Adjacent to the aft settee is a drinks' fridge. Opposite on the starboard side is a long, low, covered freezer with cushion on top for seating. Mounted on either side of the flybridge are triple spreader outriggers.

Steps lead from between the fridge and freezer to the boat deck below. The boat deck has a heavy-duty cradle for a tender. Outboard on the port side is an 800 lb. Nautical Structures davit. Just below the boat deck, a few steps down, is the large cockpit with transom door that leads to the swim platform.


A sturdy fold down Bimini
Exquisite 130 Class Bluewater fighting chair
Hatch to the lazarette
Electric Nilsson stern warping winch
Transom door to large swim platform providing easy accessibility to the water for boarding the tender or engaging in water sports activities


The lazarette houses the yacht’s two John Deere generators as well as one of two 20-gallon hot water heaters, various pumps, and the steering gear.

Side Decks and Foredeck

Full walkaround side decks lead to the foredeck. Decks are painted here and have new aluminum stanchions, bow rail, and lifelines on welded studs (no stainless fastened through deck).

The side decks have entry gates to port and starboard. There are deck fills for fuel and water, port and starboard, as well as shore power connections – one amidships to starboard, plus one on the port side forward. At the front of the house in the bow is a large U-shaped sun lounge covered in a waterproof upholstery which does not require a cover. This is a perfect spot to “get away” if needed, have a nap, or enjoy looking at the water either at anchor or underway! Adjacent to the sun lounge are stainless steel cowl vents for fresh air.

At the bow is a Nilsson #300 hydraulic anchor windlass with dual capstans (windlass runs off a PTO on port gen). There are two anchors on rollers here:
Starboard 75 lb. stainless steel CQR type with 150’ of ½” chain and 1” rode
44 lb. stainless steel Bruce type lunch hook
