Come aboard and look around

Have you been aboard a trawler?    I hadn’t until last year.    I took a few photos of Moon Shadows interior; let’s take a look around.

When you come aboard , you will be entering the salon.   To the starboard is the loveseat couch we found on Craigslist.   It was a ‘new take-out couch from a Winnebago rv (owner opted for recliners).

It has the added feature of push button electric recliner and converts to a queen bed.

The drop leaf table in the salon is new- a recent woodworking project.  Dave got black walnut family friends in Delano,  MN and made the beautiful table. It has a gas shock and is a adjustable high low – and drop leaf.image


To port side is the cabinet that Dave customized.


It has the original Corian counter top, with a concealed flat screen tv that retracts into the console via a remote. It is hidden behind a sliding smoked glass wine rack.  Very ingenious design!  The lower drawer is large and accommodates a pantry of food items.


Step forward into our galley. 

The four burner stove is propane, with oven.  The apartment size refrigerator / freezer is very handy.   It was updated by moving the hinges from the right to the left so it opens facing the galley for convenience.    The plastic front was removed and stainless inserts were added to give it an updated look.   (Attracts finger prints, but the look is worth it)

The flooring was replaced this winter.   The teak and holly is a vinyl product, so it is easy to clean and very durable.   It will extend down the steps and meet the new carpet we installed on the landing and in the bedrooms.

We were looking for added cabinet space, and saw a feature in a new mainship with a dish shelf under a trap door in the forward counter.    Taking an idea from our sailboat, we cut a hole behind the back splash and Dave built a shelf extending into the guest cabin above head level.    This added a 4 foot wide by 11 inch deep shelf with smoked plexiglass sliding doors.  Love it!

To add counter space, there is a cover for the stove top and one for the sink.

Down a couple steps to the guest bedroom. Stateroom and head. More photos later !

Heading back outside; find one of the features Colleen really liked- stairs to the flybridge instead of a ladder!   The solar panels a radar mast are ready to work. Here are a couple more pictures.
