Vessel Walkthrough

Beautifully appointed with 3 Staterooms plus crew, office, and 3 heads plus crew.

The large salon is entered from the protected aft deck, up the steps to the galley/dinette with port and starboard doors to the weather decks and staircase to the Command Bridge and to the staterooms. The down forward staircase leads to the midship Primary Stateroom, forward VIP stateroom, and Port Guest stateroom / office.

The stand-up Engine Room and Crew Quarters/Lazarette are aft and entered from the cockpit or the transom door.

The enclosed Command Bridge is accessed forward from a staircase from the galley dinette area or a staircase from the Aft Deck.

The Boat Deck serves as a sun deck when the tender is launched. There are wide protected side decks, a Portuguese bridge and an impressive high foredeck bulwarks.

Blue Heron was built with elegant, satin-finished grain-matched cherry bulkheads, trim, and finishings. The soles are teak and holly.

The fixtures are gold-plated for reduced maintenance. Door trim is heavy to accommodate substantial Schwepper hardware.

The climate control system uses a reverse-cycle chilled/heated closed Glycol/water loop system, quietly and gently delivering proper air temperature throughout.

Accommodations

There are three staterooms, an Office and three heads, plus Crew Quarters with queen bed and ensuite head. The Master Stateroom has the highly desirable his/hers twin head with central shower aggangement. The forward VIP Stateroom has an en suite head with separate shower and an additional door to the companionway that allows the head to be used by guests in the Port Stateroom and Office, and also as the day head. Extensive storage areas are provided throughout the vessel.

A close inspection of the enclosed storage areas shows that the fine joinery is continued into the fully lined and perfectly finished cabinetry. Spaces behind appliances are finished to the same standards as the visible accommodations area. All hanging lockers are cedar-lined and lighted.

There is a separate entrance in the cockpit so the crew does not need to enter the salon to access their quarters. There is also a transom door that provides access while in port. This door takes you through the storage area and crew quarters to the engine room.

Galley / Dinette

The Country Kitchen is centrally located on the main deck forward and up 3 steps from the salon. An opening under the aft cabinets allows visibility right through to the salon and aft deck. The galley counters are Black Galaxy granite and the under-mounted sink is on the forward side of the galley counter so you are looking out the front windows of the yacht when standing at the sink. The Dacor cooktop is on the port side of the U-shaped counter and has removable stainless steel sea rails to keep pots from moving about on the smooth glass cooktop. The up-right refrigerator and freezer are on the aft end of the galley right next to the cook top. The galley has generous cabinet space with louvered doors to keep the cabinets well ventilated. the raised dining area is aft to port with L-shaped Ultraleather settee.

Engines and Mechanical

The engine room has full standing headroom. It is accessed through an aft watertight door with a viewing port. Air conditioned and with cables neatly bundled, valves clearly labeled, plumbing color coded, gauges at eye level and plenty of light to work make this an ideal "boys toy room".

The sea chest is at the forward end of the engine room and provides sea water to the engines, generator, air-conditioning, and all the other items on the yacht that need sea water. Each item has it's own shut-off valve for servicing. The two 900 gallon fuel tanks are just forward of the forward engine room bulkhead. This is the center of floatation of the yacht so your running angle will not change as your fuel level changes. The fuel tanks also provide an additional layer of soundproofing between the engines and the cabins forward.
