Walk Through Safari

Entering the cockpit through the transom door, on the starboard-side is the summer galley with a BBQ, sink, fridge and lots of storage. Port-side (before entering the salon) is a super-convenient day head.

The interior of Safari is light and bright with its Maple and Madrone Burl joinery.

Heading into the salon there is a large sectional L-shaped sofa to starboard, and to port is a recliner armchair and curved bureau. Also to port and further forward is the companionway to the master suite and machinery room.

At the forward end of the salon is a room dividing cabinet housing the TV and entertainment equipment.

Two steps up is the dining area that is part of the open design, but still has its own feeling of privacy and intimacy. It can accommodate up to eight diners.

Along the port side between the dining area and the galley is a long built-in wet bar and sideboard with beveled glass doors, and an 18k gold-plated sink.

Next forward is the incredibly spacious galley. The island counter houses the cooktop and there is room for the three bar stools. There is a full height multi-door pantry, floor to ceiling fridge and freezer plus a long working area with full-size under-counter appliances.

Up the next level forward is the pilothouse and lower helm station. Port-side are the companionways to the flybridge and lower staterooms and crews quarters. The pilothouse has a forward facing guest settee and table. Two comfortable custom helm chairs, finished in leather. Port and starboard doors lead to the side decks and foredeck.

From the pilothouse, stairs up to the flybridge and upper helm. The area is fully enclosed, and has U-shaped settees with seating for up to ten or twelve guests. The boat deck is aft with a summer galley, and a centreline crane that can hoist tenders to either side of the yacht.

There are two separate accommodations areas: Down from the pilothouse are two guest cabins, each with their own heads and showers, and two crew cabins that share a head and shower. Down from the salon is the master suite with private head shower and jacuzzi tub, and access to the laundry and machinery space.
