Accommodations / Walkthrough

Boarding this exceptional performance cruising yacht, you can step aboard via port or starboard midship boarding gates or via the large transom power fold-down swim step and up a built-in transom step. This step folds flush into the transom while underway. 

The cockpit is protected with a large dodger/bimini top, teak soles, helm wheel with instrumentation. This area can be totally enclosed for cold weather sailing. 

Sailing and navigational equipment are flush-mounted on the bulkhead. There is a folding teak dining table with more than ample guest seating. All sailing lines lead aft to the power winches in the cockpit. The yachts tender is stored forward of the mast on removable chocks. 

Stepping below, you will find the open, raised, satin finished teak salon with U-shaped seating and dining table to port, large viewing window and overhead opening hatches. To starboard is a seating bench and flat screen TV that can be raised or lowered to be out of sight. Moving aft on the starboard side is the navigation table with complete electronics. Amidships is the entrance into the engine room with storage, combo washer/dryer and workspace. Forward is the engine and genset area. 

Moving aft is the full beam master stateroom with centerline queen bed with port and starboard end tables. To starboard is a settee and ample storage lockers. To port are the built-in chests of drawers, vanity and hanging lockers. Center forward is the hidden flat screen TV. To port is the ensuite master head with stall shower. 

Moving forward from the raised salon you step down three steps to the gourmet galley to port with large counter space, built-in refrigeration and freezers and double stainless steel sinks. To starboard there is an L-shaped seating area and dining table with an additional flat screen TV which is mounted on the bulkhead. To port and starboard are two identical guest staterooms each featuring lower double berths with a single upper berth and ample storage. The port stateroom's lower berths can be extended to queen size. Each of the guest staterooms has an ensuite head and stall shower. 

Moving forward in the starboard guest cabin you enter a double berth crew cabin with crew head. Below decks features a water-based satin teak interior, teak and holly cabin soles with large viewing windows in the raised salon which is bright and airy and offers expansive views.

Under this knowledgeable ownership, MEHETABEL underwent a comprehensive refit at Driscoll shipyard in San Diego and in Newport Beach in September 2012 completing the refit and upgrades in March 2013 through 2018.

Remarks

This yacht was custom built for a very knowledgeable yachtsman. She is captain maintained and in outstanding condition. Truly a fine performance sailing yacht, MEHETABEL was designed to be sailed shorthanded. All lines lead aft to power winches. Her carbon sloop cutter rig is easy to balance and gives one many sail configuration options, all handled hydraulically. She powers well at 9.5 knots and tops out at 11.5 with close to a 900-mile range at 9 knots. 

She features a large protected sailing and entertaining cockpit. Her interior is completed in water-based satin teak finish with teak and holly cabin soles. The raised salon has large viewing windows and is an excellent gathering spot either underway or at anchor. Her after master stateroom and two guest staterooms all have ensuite heads. Crew quarters are forward. 

MEHETABEL is a joy to be aboard either on the hook or underway.
