Vessel Walkthrough:

The design is aft cockpit with one stateroom. The interior has 6’3” headroom. Forward is a private master’s stateroom with custom V-berth mattress (New 2004), lockers and storage. Next aft to starboard is the enclosed head with electric macerator pump operated MSD, sink and dedicated, enclosed shower with Sump Pump. To port is a bureau and hanging locker. Next aft are port/starboard settees that convert to berths and a bulkhead mounted dining table. To starboard are lockers, bookshelves and a custom entertainment center. Aft again to port is a “U” shaped galley. To starboard is a dedicated navigation station with swivel armchair. All compartments are serviced by a 16,000 BTU Cruiseair reverse cycle heat and air conditioning system.

Masters Stateroom:

Located forward, this area features a custom made 6” thick Innerspring Mattress (New 2004), overhead hatch for excellent ventilation, book shelves, lockers, drawer storage and abundant storage below the V-berth. Brand new custom sheets for the mattress are also included. This area may be sealed from main salon with a privacy door.


Located to starboard, forward of main cabin, this area features pressurized H/C water for sink and shower, and an electric flush MSD with macerator pump and Y-valve. The dedicated, enclosed shower includes a sump pump to keep water from the bilge and a built in laundry hamper. Teak cabinets and mirrors complete the area.

Main Salon:

The main salon features opposing settees with a starboard side mounted dining table. Both settees convert to sea berths with custom leeboards. There is ample storage in the custom entertainment center to starboard and below and beside the bookshelves to port. Two 50-gallon water tanks with clean-outs are below the settees, and one is below the v-berth. The 2000 renovation also included the upholstery, the central heat and air-conditioning system and the teak and holly sole. A radio with CD adapter is mounted on the port side and features speakers in the salon and cockpit.


A large “U” shaped layout includes a three burner Force 10 propane range and oven with remote fuel shutoff/solenoid. There is storage in drawers beside the sink and also in the cabinet below. The S/S sink is serviced by pressurized hot & cold water from the 150-gallon potable tanks and the 6-gallon water heater. The deep, top-loading Adler-Barbour refrigerator/freezer was added in 2000.

Electronics, Navigation:

A dedicated Navigation Station is located in the starboard quarter, featuring shelves, lift-top desk and swivel chair. Equipment includes a binnacle-mounted Ritchie Compass, VHF Radio, digital depth sounder, wind instrument (new 2003), hand-held GPS, Raytheon R10 24 Mile Radar mounted on a swivel base, registered EPIRB, Navico 12 volt autopilot, ships clock, barometer, Kenwood SSB transceiver/tuner with Navtec weather receiver.

Hull & Deck Equipment:

Four anchors are equipped with chain and rode. The bowsprit features twin anchor rollers. The foredeck includes a manual windlass, and stainless steel stanchions and bow pulpit. Davits are mounted at the stern.


The custom made bimini and dodger includes heavy S/S tubing, a vinyl bimini/dodger connection, and a complete cockpit enclosure with clear vinyl panels and screens. Matching winch and hatch covers were new in 2004. A foredeck awning is also included.

Electrical System:

The system (110V AC/12V DC) includes 4 batteries with parallel switch (1 starting, 3 house), dockside electrical cables (30 AMP), 110v GF receptacles, breaker panel, 90-amp alternator and a 2000-watt inverter/3 stage battery charger. System was professionally inspected and upgraded in 2004.

Sails and Rigging:

Janussea is a staysail ketch with roller furling headstay.
Sails include: Main with triple jiffy reefing system including boom winch, 135 Genoa for the roller, hanked on staysail, mizzen, mizzen staysail, and cruising spinnaker. Doyle Stackpack handling systems were added to the main and mizzen in 2004. The standing rigging features custom running backstay adjusters and was replaced in 1998 using Stalock fittings.

Many spare parts and equipment are also available.

It''s the vultures circling around...they think without some moderators carrying shotguns they can post anything.

More power to your effort, dman! Unless it''s free, tell ''em to move to e-bay!

Bobsquarepants was asking for sugestions on what may be a good boat for this purpose. Not a sales pitch from an idiot biased by the need to sell his own boat.
