A roomy cockpit with an upholstered bench seat is a wonderful place to sit on a sunny day. The center cushion and seat are removable for easy access to the dinghy davits and teak swim platform.
Wide side decks make reaching the bow safe and easy.
Most notably this particular Surfhunter has a custom, factory ordered, hard-back enclosure and beautiful teak pilothouse door. Unlike any other, this feature provides a substantial upgrade in comfort, security, and noise reduction.
The pilothouse area is compact, but comfortable for 4 seated adults underway. Excellent visibility from the helm chair, and access to all of the updated navigation equipment is within easy reach.
The Cummins diesel engine is accessed through several floor access panels in the pilothouse, and the day access to fuel filters etc. is easily accessible under the helm seat floorboard. The desirable Cummins 6BTA 5.9l engine is renowned for reliability, efficiency and performance. Encore can cruise at 25kts burning only 11 gph.
Descending the 3 steps into the lower living area, you find yourself in the large in-line galley laid out to port. Exceptional thought has been put into the design and construction of this custom option. This large galley replaced what would normally be a small galley and tiny dinette, and offers a large stove/oven, refrigerator, sink, and well designed storage solutions.
The large head is to starboard, and forward is a spacious v-berth with a filler cushion, custom fabrics, fitted mattress protectors and sheets, ample storage and a comfortable separate seating area for reading, relaxing, or putting shoes on.
Everything you’d need for a couples cruiser with the ability to have more aboard for day-boating.
Tastefully appointed, impressively built, and well maintained.
