Sea of Oz Custom Yacht
This 108’ Flybridge Pilothouse Cutter, built in New Zealand by Alloy Yachts, was sailed to Ft. Lauderdale to be retrofitted to my client’s specifications. I flew back and forth for months to oversee the retrofitting of this wonderful yacht with its now high end luxury interiors.
Bridge - The bridge is fitted with solid teak decks and cherry and sugar maple twin wheels and controls. All of the cushions are in high grade faux leather, manufactured to take on the sea air and water, as well as the blistering sun.
Deck - One of the focal features of the deck is the fresh or salt water jacuzzi. An hydraulic lift opens the back of the deck at the stern, aka garage. The garage houses a E3 diver compressor, eight dive bottles, four sets of dive equipment, two custom Murray Brothers fighting chairs, a Sea Do watercraft, a Yamaha Superjet watercraft, two RFD 8-man life rafts, a skeet shoot launcher, and a 17-foot inflatable Zodiac MK4 with 60 HP outboard.
Wheelhouse - The wheelhouse was fitted with all custom leather bulkheads and map desk and cabinetry in a combination wood; lace, cherry, rosewood and ebony. The captain’s chair is covered in heavy black leather with a cherrywood accent strip.
Wheelhouse - A feature of the wheelhouse is the combination lounge/dining area. The Macassar ebony and black ebony table can be adjusted from coffee height to dining height. The sofas, like the captain’s chair, are covered in heavy black leather with cherrywood accent strips.
Main Salon - The main salon is paneled in quarter sawn cherrywood with black ebony accents. As in the wheelhouse, the salon is fitted with custom leather bulkheads. The floor is covered in custom hand-tufted wool and silk carpet, fabricated in Puerto Rico by V'Soske. Since this boat belongs to a Hollywood mogul, the salon sports a full A/V system with every DVD and CD imaginable. The TV is hooked up to underwater cameras, mounted in the hull of the boat, that allow you to view the sea life below.
Main Salon - The custom chenille sectional was designed for additional storage, which is located underneath the cushions. Behind the paneling is further hidden storage, used for fine china and crystal. Everything in storage is safely strapped in place, so as to avoid any damage while the ship is underway. The lights flanking the sectional are made using two Art Deco Lalique panels depicting the face of Poseidon. They were salvaged from the SS Normandie.
Main Salon/Dining Area - The main dining table is custom designed with a cherrywood base, black ebony edge rail, and a beautiful 1" thick cracked glass top. The chairs, from Dakota Jackson, are covered in handwoven jet black Jeffrey Aronoff chenille.
Galley - A full galley was designed and fitted with all the equipment needed for the on board chef to serve up a gourmet meal at any given moment. The white polyester lacquered cabinets are accentuated with solid Uba Tuba granite countertops. The floor is finished in a high gloss teak with black ebony inlay.
Guest Stateroom Port Side - This guest stateroom, with queen size bed, is located on the port side of the boat.
Guest Stateroom Starboard Side - The second guest stateroom is located on the starboard side of the boat. The custom twin size beds can slide together to make one large bed, when the need arises. As is typical throughout the boat, high quality materials are used here.
Master Stateroom - The master stateroom floor is covered in custom hand-tufted wool and silk carpet from by V'Soske. The casework is all quarter sawn cherrywood with black ebony inlay. The ceiling is upholstered in cream colored leather. Curtain panels are fabricated from Belgian linen and the bed cover and sofa are covered in handwoven Jeffrey Aronoff chenille. The sheets are all custom 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton, with pillowcases emblazened with the silk embroidered logo for the Sea of Oz. Pictures on the wall are original George Hurrell photographs.
Master Stateroom - The master stateroom includes a desk with a computer port, so the owner, while out at sea, can keep contact with his office.
Master Head - The custom steam/dry sauna, as well as the full size shower, in the master head makes the sailing experience a little more comfortable.
Master Head - A custom make up drawer was designed for the lady of the boat. After flipping down the drawer front, you pull out the make up tray, and once the lid is opened, everything locks into place and the make up lights automatically turn on. A trigger under the tray releases the lid so that it can be closed, which turns off the lights. Push the tray back in, flip up the drawer front, and it disappears. Pretty cool, huh?
Gym - What sailboat is complete without a gym?! In order to install this room, we had to counter balance the weight of the equipment on the port side by adding weigh to the starboard side.
