SALOON

The interior of JOLANTA is extremely spacious for the length of yacht, and has exceptionally good head room of over 6 foot throughout. She is faced in pitch pine with white ceilings, except for the heads which is tiled blue and the walls are painted white for easy cleaning and maintenance. Cupboard fronts are louvered doors to ensure good ventilation and contrast with the pine. The soles are varnished oak throughout the boat. Light is created from three overhead large deck portholes and portholes along the side and from the cockpit door which has a clear window in it.

The overall effect is one of light and warmth and space.

Steps lead down from the cockpit, where two berths on each side run the length of the saloon giving a large comfortable seating area, with a drop leaf oak table with fiddles. The bulkhead facing the cockpit, supports a multi fuel stove in stainless steel, with fireproof backing upon which are blue tiles surrounding, which provides warmth and a cosy feel to the saloon in colder weathers.

The berths on each side of the saloon are covered with hard wearing, easily cleaned ‘fitted’ upholstery and have matching blue and blue/cream checked cushions. The upholstery is in excellent condition and is attached by Velcro and easily removable. Lee cloths in blue canvas clip to the fronts of the berths and are also designed to cover the upholstery to provide additional protection if needed.

The port side berth holds two house batteries, one engine battery and 40 gallon TEK tank plastic fresh water tank. On the front of the berth discreetly placed, are the battery isolator switches and house battery switch. Above the berth are two generous book shelves, and Chart Plotter, Radio and CD player, with speakers in saloon, and also in cockpit. On the rear port bulkhead is a rack for navigation tools.

The starboard berth holds 40 gallon TEK tank plastic fresh water tank and large storage area.

The two under berth fresh water tanks feed a 23 gallon TEK tank under the sole below the solid fuel stove, which via an electric pump, feeds the galley and heads.

To the end of the starboard berth there is a large hanging locker, clock and barometer on plinth.

To the end of the port berth is the DSC/VHF radio and 12 volt electric panel with a large storage cupboard underneath and waste bin.

Lighting is provided by two Vetus 12 volts ceiling lights, 2 Vetus 12 volt bunk lights, and a paraffin oil lamp on the bulkhead above the stove.

Access to the engine room is through door, behind the steps leading from the cockpit.
