Offshore Yachts are a strong brand based on great design, renowned build, and a long list of discerning and satisfied owners. William B. Crealock designed a semi-displacement hull, which is efficient at displacement speeds and hides a turn of speed when the need arises to beat weather or return to home port. The ride is soft, comfortable, and, in worsened conditions, safe - inspiring confidence. The low centre of gravity, substantial displacement, fine entry, deep forefoot and long keel allow a comfortable motion, excellent directional stability and ease of handling in close quarters.
The design demands a discerning builder, with components fully finished, even where hidden from obvious view. Mold details such as recessed port lights and overhead deck lights and exacting details of intricate and thoughtful storage, and remarkable access to service points. The fibreglass structures are immensely strong and the gelcoats the finest. Note the massive stainless steel engine beds and feel the confidence.
Throughout the yacht find teak joinery to a very high standard of finish and care. The honey teak glows warmly and evenly above and below decks. The soft furnishings are tasteful and immensely practical throughout, including the flybridge area with the full enclosure, and the helm and co-pilot seats that turn to join friends at table. The salon, galley and pilothouse are bathed in natural light from large windows and a plan that separates spaces, but feels open and airy. The visibilty of the surroundings is incredible, and rare in modern yachts built with dark windows suited to hot climates. Interior heat is provided by a newly updated diesel fired hydronic system with zone temperature control, and by back up electric AC baseboard heaters in the salon and in each cabin.
Sandpiper excites the moment one opens the boatshed door - she gleams proudly, ready to take safe flight and explore remote beaches up and down our coast.
Access to the accommodations below leads forward from the starboard side of the pilothouse down a set of stairs to a landing with the master stateroom aft amidships and the guest stateroom forward. The Asko washer and dryer units are located behind teak doors on the landing.
Both staterooms have plenty of storage in hanging lockers, drawers and cupboards. The teak joinery and attention to detail is magnificent throughout, and continues to stand the test of time. Each stateroom is complete with its own island queen berth, head and shower. Note the warm soft furnishings, and abundant lighting, most on dimmers, including ceiling lights, sconces, and courtesy lights.
VIP Guest Stateroom Forward:
There is extra sleeping accommodations in the salon and pilothouse. Both settees convert to a double and twin respectively.
The salon is large and spacious with excellent views in all directions. The interior has warm teak walls with elegant, tasteful soft goods. Between the galley forward and the salon, a raised counter and ceiling cabinets that provide separation, but not isolation.
The galley is open to the pilothouse and salon and includes an in-sink disposal unit and an abundance of storage. The beautiful teak finish continues into the galley which is complete with Corian counter tops, electric stove top, built in Mielle dishwasher and a full size side by side Amana refrigerator/freezer.
The pilothouse is up from the salon. The navigation centre is well thought out with a centre station Destroyer wheel, pilot and navigator pedestal Stidd chairs and complete instrumentation, designed for ease of navigation and ship handling.
Aft of the navigation centre is a large settee with adjustable table. Access to the fly bridge is via stairs to starboard and a clear hatchway on gas struts.
The flybridge is fully enclosed providing additional all-weather space. The two Pompanette helm seats, one centred on the wheel and one to port provide excellent vision in all directions. And they turn to join the table when entertaining.
To port is a covered cooler, and to starboard is counter space and storage with a covered sink, hot and cold pressurized water and bar fridge. Aft of the helm seats is a large L-shaped settee with two pedestal mounted tables. More storage below this settee.
Sandpiper is designed and maintained to be cruised. Her wide decks and high rails provide safety and security while moving about the vessel, even in weather. Her exterior is maintained to the same high standards as her interior, and show the highest degree of love, care and maintenance.
AC and DC power services the vessel through circuit breaker panels with appropriate voltage and ampere gauges. 110VAC provided by 50 Amp shore connection, by the generators, and through the inverter.
At sea, the batteries are charged by engine or generator driven alternators and while at a dock, by the inverters and chargers via shorepower.
The electrical system is robust and provides worry free independence while away from a dock.
The engine room of Sandpiper shows the same care and attention to detail as the rest of the vessel. Access is through the cockpit lazarette, cockpit engine locker, or a ladder from the galley. And all areas are clean and dry.
The owner finds that the most efficient cruising is at 1,650 RPM making 12 knots. He also reports that the boat is smooth, balanced, and comfortable running for extended periods at eighteen to twenty knots.
All major and minor engine service is up to date and logged.
The boat shed is available as a separate purchase. It is 64' by 26' with a water dimension of 18' 2" wide by 54' 8"n electric roll up door opening up to a maximum height of 24'. See the dimensions graph for details.
