Quarters at the Bow
The interior of “Summer Skis” is teak
with a satin finish. All living

system. All upholstery in the
saloon and pilothouse was upgraded to Ultraleather.
The main saloon is accessed from the stern of the boat
through a large dutch door. This arrangement allows for a large settee & custom
Corian fold down table area on the stbd side with full settee on the port
side. This allows for easy access
through the salon and is a great space for entertaining. The Corian table has a
Crown Stainless Hi-Lo pedestal base. On the stbd upper bulkhead of the saloon is a flat screen TV.
The floor of the salon is teak & holly with an area carpet that enhances
the look of the saloon.
The galley is at the forward end of the saloon and offers custom
Corian countertops that can be used for passing items to the saloon eating area. The galley is well laid out with ample
storage. The galley contains the following appliances:

Three steps lead up into the Pilothouse from the
companionway. The Pilothouse
includes the primary command stations & electronics for the vessel, along with a Zentrax battery monitor and rode counter. This area provides a panoramic view of

which keeps the crew close during overnight trips. There is also a Splendide washer/dryer
combo unit installed beneath the chart table area.

The lazarette contains the house
