Craftsmans Art was built by Southampton Yacht Services and designed by Bill Dixon
with interior design by Ed Myers for the current experienced owner.
Her large cockpit is perfect for relaxation and entertaining. There is seating for 4 behind the shelter of the bridge deck with the main guest seating aft for 8, with the dining area for 12. There are sun-lounging areas both on the foredeck and aft deck.
Easy steps lead into the bright airy deck saloon with sofa seating to starboard and navigation area
to port, from here you look over the mahogany carved rail to the light and spacious main saloon below; with dining for 8, sofa, armchairs and writing desk. The main stateroom has a king size bed, dressing table, sofa and en-suite. The two identical twin cabins also have dressing tables, storage and en-suites. The galley and crew area are forward of the saloon.
The Dixon design is an easily driven, sea friendly hull with schooner rig and has 3 light weather sails.
Guests are instantly impressed by the space above and below decks and the beauty of the exposed structure and furnishing all in mahogany. Boat International stated “...her saloon has cathedral like proportions and she heels to a sailing breeze in a way only a substantial wooden boat can do...”. The lasting memory for most will be slipping along under colourful light weather sails enjoying an evening drink while seated on deck chairs on the aft deck.
