Layout Overview
Enter from the aft cockpit through the aluminum hinged Dutch door. There is a crescent shaped settee to starboard and a straight settee to port. The upholstery is Ultra leather. There is a custom Boyle hi-lo, drop leaf table to starboard. The teak and spruce salon sole is covered with an anti-skid backed, bound edge new carpet with a 2" reveal to expose the wood around its perimeter.

The galley is at the port forward end of the salon and communication between the galley and salon is unimpeded. The stacked Asko washer and dryer are forward and to starboard behind a fully louvered door.

Just inboard, there are steps up to the pilothouse. The pilothouse is a comfortable place for a group to gather underway. Forward raked windscreens aid in shedding water and eliminate light reflecting from the electronics during night operation. Inside the windscreen are large upper and lower instrument consoles.

There is a very comfortable, and adjustable Stidd helm chair upholstered in Ultraleather at the steering station. The chair is located comfortably in reach of the instrument console and angled stainless steel wheel. The instruments mounted into the upper and lower consoles display very clearly. To starboard is the electrical distribution panel with digital meters that allow the systems to be monitored easily.

Aft of the helm chair are the dinette settee and teak table. The cushions are upholstered in matching Ultra leather. A watch berth is just aft and above the dinette seat back.

To starboard and forward from the pilothouse are steps down to the landing for access to the master and guest staterooms.

Forward of the landing are the two guest cabins with the double to port and the over and under bunks to starboard. There is drawer and locker stowage in each cabin.

Aft of the landing is the master cabin. There is a queen size bed with drawer storage under, and two hanging lockers and drawer storage outboard to port. Over the head of the bed is a bookshelf with a removable fiddle. There is a swing arm reading lamp above each side of the bed. The bed has a custom mattress.

Forward of the bed is a bank of drawers with a dressing mirror above.

Engine room access is on the starboard side of the bed. The door is gasketed, insulated aluminum with a lockset and two dogs for a positive sound seal.
Machinery Details
The single John Deere main engine is a time and distance tested Nordhavn configuration. With dry stack exhaust and the Nordhavn gravity feed fuel system, the propulsion system is the most reliable of any in service. It has been tested over many years and millions of cumulative miles, including those racked up over numerous transoceanic passages dating back to the introduction of the Nordhavn 46 in 1988.

The raw water pump on the main engine has been eliminated in the keel-cooled configuration. There is no raw (outside) cooling water intake in the closed circuit to ingest weed, plastic, or other marine growth.

Exhaust gas from the engine is discharged from the dry stack well above the deck and superstructure to eliminate the “station wagon effect” of pulling the exhaust along with the boat underway. Exhaust noise is diminished because of the absence of the cooling water discharged with the gas at the waterline.

Machinery Components:
John Deere 1066T.2 diesel engine rated at 164 hp (1,734 hours as of 11/2017)
Engine has 24-volt 175-amp Leece-Neville large case alternator for house bank
              charging, plus 24-volt 40-amp small case alternator for engine start battery
John Deere 844D 40 hp wing engine (126 hours as of 11/2017)
ZFW 220 main engine transmission with a 3.96:1 reduction gear
Trac digital stabilizers
Side Power bow and stern thrusters
Mathers electronic engine controls for main engine in pilothouse and cockpit control
Engine analog gauges and Murphy “powerview” digital display
2-1/4" diameter Aquamet propeller shaft
Spurs line cutter on main propeller shaft
Propeller is a four-blade 34" diameter x 32" pitch bronze
Main engine fuel filter is a Racor 75-900FGX2 (duplex) with valve-over capability
Wing engine has its own shaft and propeller. There is no cross-linking of power to the
                main shaft, which would be rendered ineffective if fouling of the main engine
                propeller would occur.
Wing engine has Morse cable controls. Control head and instrument panel are
                mounted in the pilothouse. The wing engine can be started and operated
                immediately from the pilothouse control station.
2 ea. 700 gal. fiberglass fuel storage tanks with man-sized access ports and internal
                removable baffles. Fuel supply pick-ups are at the bottom of each tank. Each tank
is fitted with a sight gauge
1 ea. aluminum 70-gallon aluminum supply (manifold) day tank fed by gravity from the
               storage tanks via ¾" lines.  Supply tank has a water/debris sump with a drain and
               Racor water sensor connected to an alarm in the pilothouse. Supply tank is fitted
               with a sight gauge.
Fuel transfer system draws from the bottom of each storage tank. System uses 
                a Waldron fuel pump to move fuel from tank to tank, or a tank back to 
                itself, through a Racor 900 fuel filter.
The wing engine tank is only filled via the fuel transfer system, ensuring that 
                all of the fuel in it is clean. Fuel to the wing engine is filtered through a 
                Racor filter again in the supply line to the engine.
Reverso oil change system plumbed to main engine, generator and wing engine
Air-conditioning is Marine Air reverse cycle with digital controls with total of 60,000 Btu
            capacity -  2 x 12k for salon, 16k for pilothouse, 2 x 10k for staterooms
Steering system - Hynautic hydraulic, with 18" angle mounted wheel and power knob
Rudder stock is 2" in diameter supported at the upper end by a cutlass bearing 
                 and at the bottom by a bronze shoe
Emergency tiller and cross-over valve for steering system back-up
Engine Room
The engine room is insulated with 2" foil faced leaded foam, covered with aluminum perforated plate.

The maintenance strakes contoured into the hull underbody provide space for a flatter main engine shaft angle for propeller efficiency as well as increased space in the engine room to walk around the engine.

There is easy access to all of the mechanical systems in the engine room. The John Deere wing engine is to port and the Northern-Lights generator is to starboard.

There is a stainless-steel railing around the main engine.

There are insulated winter covers for the engine room air intake ducts.

A set of SAE and metric wrenches, screw drivers, pliers and miscellaneous tools are conveniently mounted on dedicated backboards on the aft engine room bulkhead.
