A stunning classic Ron Holland design that has been maintained to the highest level with several major refits by a knowledgeable owner and crew. This elegant yacht offers a level of excellence from design, quality and condition rarely found. Completely ready for your adventure. Please see refit summary below. Only your personal inspection will confirm the precision, detail and evidence of her pedigree throughout. Rarely does such a “proper yacht” come to the market.
BLUE TOO offers three staterooms for the Owner and guests in a very spacious low profile raised deck salon/pilothouse, with full beam lower salon. Accommodations for four/five crew forward of the galley with a comfortable crew mess.
One of the greatest aspects is the two-cockpit design, with the private owner’s cockpit aft, while the comfortable center cockpit offers superb seating, sailing comfort and room for dining. Just aft of the seating area are walkways to the side deck, with the helm located just aft.
The interior is teak with raised panel joinery, with elegant soft goods, beautiful Loro Piana leathers and bright, well ventilated accommodations. All interior lighting replaced with LED.
Upon entering from the spacious cockpit through electrically controlled companionway doors to retain air conditioning inside, you are greeted by the delightful deck salon with a large U-shaped settee covered in Loro Piana leather with comfortable seating for six to port with a cocktail table that converts for dining. Opposite to starboard on the forward side, is the navigation and communication station that may be retracted from sight when not in use, while aft is a full navigation station, and adjacent desk.
A few steps from the deck salon, down a gracious stairway, is access to the well apportioned full beam main salon, while the deck salon above provides an open and airy feel to the lower salon. On the port side of the main salon is a comfortable seating area with built in sofas and cocktail table, with a dining area opposite on the starboard side, again with settee covered with Lora Piana leather.
Located forward of the dining area is access to the galley and crew mess. Spacious and well designed with a crew dinette on starboard and well-equipped galley on port. As expected, the galley offers built in refrigeration, freezer and storage for extended entertaining and cruising. Specific equipment is listed below.
Owner and Guest Accommodations
The owner and guest staterooms are in the desirable area aft, served by a central corridor from the deck salon.
The full beam master provides a full walk around queen bed to port, L shaped settee to starboard and bureau adjacent. Double door closets provide hanging locker space and cabinets provide additional storage. Continuing aft the landing for the stairs to the private cockpit aft splits the master head with a large shower room to port featuring a marble shower with teak seats, sink and mirror vanity. On the starboard side the split head area offers the WC with toilet and sink.
On either side of the central corridor from the deck salon are two guest staterooms. To port is a queen bed stateroom complete with hanging locker, bureau and ensuite head with stall shower. Opposite on starboard, the guest stateroom features side by side single beds, hanging locker and ensuite head with stall shower. There is convenient built in hanging chart storage in the corridor.
Just forward of the crew mess and galley, the Captain’s cabin is to starboard, with a full double lower berth and drop down pullman berth and ensuite head with stall shower. Opposite to port is an over/under crew cabin with good storage and ensuite head with stall shower. A single berth is available in the forepeak if needed. There is deck access from both the forepeak and the crew mess areas.
BLUE TOO has a dual cockpit arrangement. The aft cockpit has access to the owner’s stateroom. The central cockpit has seating port and starboard, each supported by custom dining tables that fold and raise and lower. The steering pedestal is aft of the guest cockpit and has excellent visibility. There is a cockpit refrigerator and also dodger protection forward. Both cockpits are covered by awnings on stainless steel frames. The exterior layout and cockpits all have comfortable easy access and BLUE TOO is an easy yacht to walk around on deck.
