Additional Info



Second Wind features a three-stateroom layout that sleeps seven, with a large central double bed forward, two private double cabins aft to port and stbd, and a convertible dinette in the saloon to port.   The galley runs fore and aft along the stbd side of the main saloon.  There is a U-shaped settee to port with nav station aft and a head and shower to stbd near the companionway stairs.  A large closet is found between the salon and the entrance to the port aft cabin. 

The fwd cabin can be private or made completely open to the salon by removing a bulkhead and door assembly.  This can be in or out and only takes a few minutes to convert.   Currently the bulkhead is off the boat,in storage. There is a privacy curtain in its place. 

Large hull windows in the saloon and at the fwd berth allow you to see out while down below.   Curtains are installed for these and other deck windows and ports.    Two overhead deck hatches provide additional light and air and each has a combination shade/screen attachment.  The finish is a light blond oak with dark sole and taupe upholstery and padding and this delivers a modern and updated look.
