|Deck Equipment and Deck Re-fit Details|
The deck is well planned with wide open spaces and most machinery and a winch located below. There is a 6" bulwark all around with a teak cap rail. Hawse pipes are integral to the bulwarks for chafe-free leading of dock lines.
The teak decks were replaced in 2014 and all other deck surfaces and pilothouse were replaced with Alwgrip "Matterhorn White"
All 10 Lewmar Deck and Pilot house hatches were replaced in 2014
The anchor chain and gypsy are hidden below two hatches just aft of the bow. The chain comes up through a hawse pipe from the stem mounted centerline roller, around the gypsy and then down into the chain locker so it is never back on deck. There is a wash down system on the foredeck. Only the rope drum is visible above deck, making for an uncluttered foredeck.
Going aft, is a large new Lewmar hatch that gives access to the foc'sle. Foc'sle area is large and organized to store sails, ground tackle, docking equipment and cleaning supplies.

Designed by Andrew Winch for Ron Holland, VOLARE's interior is a brilliant mix of elegance, form and function. Step down the staircase from the cockpit and enter the expansive pilothouse which is light, bright and welcoming. Large fixed windows line three sides with 2 large opening hatches overhead for ventilation. The interior walls are cherry with high gloss varnish throughout. The overhead panels gloss white V grooved while the interior upper verticals are off -white. The settee is blue leather with complimenting textiles throughout. The cabin sole floorboards are all removable to provide full access to the bilge and lock into place for safety.
Continuing forward from the pilothouse, decend three more steps and the galley area with banquet is to starboard. A large en-suite guest cabin is directly across from the galley. Forward of the en-suite are two mirror imaged over and under berthed cabins which share a head. The ample head has a large opening hatch for ventilation and light.
Returning back to the pilothouse, to starboard, one would find three stairs leading down past a navigation center outboard and the electrical panel and engine room access door inboard. Aft of that is the master suite.
The pilothouse/main salon is very comfortable and bright. The raised u shaped settee, offers a panoramic view of your anchorage. The highly varnished center table features drawers in the pedestal providing great storage for flatware, stemware and china.
Opposite to starboard, is a settee in a complementing textile to the rich blue ultra leather found on the larger settee. Aft of the straight settee, is a cherry cabinet with custom housing for rocks glasses and other bar necessities.
The lower helm station is positioned to starboard. All electronics were replaced in 2014 and a new dash board which was designed and built to house them .
|Galley and Galley Re-fit Details|
The galley extends along the starboard side At the forward end if the galley is an L shaped counter top space with two person banquet. It greatly adds to working space when prepping for a meal and also serves as a mess for the crew.
Following aft is a double sink with microwave above it, a three burner propane stove with oven and a trash compacter.
The new refrigerator/freezer stacking units are located toward the aft end of the galley on centerline.. Another freezer is located outboard of these.
On the inboard side of the galley, just behind the mast is more beautifully crafted cabinetry and counter space.
All appliances were replaced in 2014.
The master stateroom stretches the full beam of the boat. A centerline queen bed with new custom mattress is flanked by two L-shaped cabinets on either side. A comfortable settee is located to starboard just foward of a full length hanging locker which is found behind the entrance door to the suite. On the forward wall directly in front of the bed, is the entertainment center which houses a new 26" LCD TV. The teak and holly cabin soles are protected with bound fitted berber carpets. To port is a lovely sit down vanity with an opening hinged top, lights and storage.
Forward of that is the head. The head includes an inlaid countertop, a large enclosed shower with a tempered glass door and a vacuflush toilet with good ventilation
|Spars, Riggings and Sails|
VOLARE is rigged for short handed sailing with a self tacking jib and in boom furling mainsail. The main halyard is controlled by a captive hydraulic reel winch so raising and lowering the powerful mainsail is done with the push of a button. The main sheet is lead aft to a hydraulic winch in the helmsmen's cockpit. The jib sheet which controls the jib is lead to a self tacking track and then aft to a hydraulic cockpit winch.
To Tack VOLARE - simply turn the wheel.
Running backstays and a detachable inner forestay are fitted, but the swept back spreaders make them unnecessary except in heavy weather.
VOLARE is in excellent condition. Her 2014 re-fit of over 1.4 million covered most systems, cosmetics and teak deck. She has been stored undercover for most of the time since the re-fit.
VOLARE is ready for her new owners to step onboard and go world cruising.
Very highly recommended!
