Avanti has a very sexy contemporary and modern feel with light woods for bulkheads, dark cabin laminate sole, taupe side upholstery, and bright windows from the hull outside to tie everything together.    The main bulkhead that separates the fwd cabin from the main cabin is completely removable to open the interior if privacy is not needed.   Rolling luggage takes the place of permanent, built-in lockers. 

There is a large Vee Berth forward with custom pillow top bedding mattress, hatch overhead, and large windows out the hull.  One set of rolling wardrobe luggage hangs on a rack in lieu of lockers.   Luggage set is included in the inventory.

The Main salon has a large U-shaped settee to port with moveable seats. The galley is outboard to stbd and features a double basin stainless steel sink, Force 10 ss propane stove (appears never used), waste basket, under-counter refrigerator, and more including curtains over windos. 

There is an aft facing Nav table and outboard is an elecrtrical panel and VHF radio, breaker panels, and more.

To stbd is a large Head and shower with electric toilet, vanity sink, and shower.  Aft is a separate shower room - unusual on a boat this size.

To port is a large closet and aft is another Aft Stateroom with large double bed and custom pillow top bedding matterss where you sleep athwarthships from port to stbd..

Hull windows, light woods, taupe upholstered side panels, and more make this into an ideal New England cruiser.

Broker comment and Disclaimer

Avanti is a one owner boat which with only 35 engine hours has seen virtually no use.  The owners are nonetheless very diligent about keeping her in top shape and have just hauled out to repaint the bottom, clean in detail the decks, and polish the hull.   The inside appears as a new boat.    They added a bow thruster and a custom liquor bottle storage rack (removable) and you will note other improvements on close inspection.   Call today for an appointment.
