VESSEL WALKTHROUGH: (4 cabins plus crew cabin, 5 heads)

Starting forward is a separate crew cabin complete with two single berths to starboard, (converted to a large double) a marine toilet and a sink to port, an overhead light and a hatch leading to the ladder for cabin access.  This cabin is separated from the rest of the interior by a bulkhead.

Aft of the crew cabin there are two mirror image, forward guest cabins, one to port and one to starboard.  Each large cabin is equipped with a comfortable double pullman berth outboard, a private head with shower and sink forward, as well as plenty of storage in the hanging closets and additional lockers.

Moving aft and in to the main salon, to starboard is the large linear galley.  The galley is well lit and ventilated from the many overhead hatches, one directly above the double stainless steel sink.  The galley features plentiful storage throughout and a large countertop surface for food prep.  Forward of the double sink is the stove and aft are the cavernous top-opening refrigerator and freezer as well as additional counter space; a design with gives the galley a very open feeling.

Opposite the galley and to port is the large open salon area.  A welcoming D-shaped settee offers plenty of seating and surrounds the large salon table.  A centerline island settee, large enough for three people, is located inboard of the salon table.  The current owner has converted this settee to a freezer space that could be converted back, or used as seating.  Outboard storage is found throughout the salon, with ample shelving for all your books and things. To port and aft of the settee is the aft facing nav station with full-sized chart table.

Moving further aft, are dual aft cabins to port and starboard.  Each cabin offers a large queen-sized berth with ensuite head, shower outboard and forward, as well as a great deal of storage space in the hanging and additional lockers.

The whole of the interior is spacious, light and airy, being well ventilated with plenty of hatches and side ports.  “Bleu Turquoise” has been well cared for so that she shows in good condition throughout.

On deck you’ll find good condition gelcoat all around.  The cockpit teak has been recently replaced and shows well and feels great underfoot.  Dark blue canvas is newer and the Sunbrella fooks and feels great.  Raymarine instruments with a B&G plotter get the job done.  Standing rigging is near new.  Sails, that big-ticket item, were new in 2019, and with boat stationary through 2020, are still as new.  An electric halyard winch gets that huge main up with ease.
