When first approaching "Phooter II" one realizes that this is no ordinary Avanti. Her hull and deck still shine like a new yacht and her canvas is in the same condition.

As you step aboard onto her comfortable swim platform the first thing that will catch your eye is the exquisitely made electric davit system made by Olsson Mfg. considered the benchmark for davits.

Stepping into the cockpit thru the port side transom door, you enter a brilliantly laid out cockpit with a mid-cockpit arch with new full camper back enclosure. A large U-shaped settee with table is to starboard aft and wet bar with ice maker to port. The forward cockpit area has a L- shaped lounge seat to port with the helm to starboard and a large double seat. ALL cushions and carpeting are new and finished in a bright blue and white making this space extremely inviting. The helm is comfortable with great visibility, full set of upgraded electronics, and full engine instrumentation.

Your transition from the cockpit to below you pass through a wide curved door and down comfortable stairs which lands you in the wide open salon and galley area. To port is a large settee with dinette table and a new corian top. The settee is a light tan ultra leather finish. The galley is to starboard with an abundance of custom wood cabinetry both above and below the corian counter top. Cooking is provided by a Panasonic Microwave Inverter Oven and cold storage with a upright Refrigerator.

Aft of the galley is the aft cabin which opens to the salon for day use and has a sofa on the starboard side. The large double berth is behind a bulkhead so it is out of sight from the salon. There is more custom cabinetry for storage for your guests.

Forward of the salon to port is a large fully molded fiberglass head for easy cleaning. The shower is a separate stall with curved clear lexan rolling door. The toilet is an electric unit made by Jabsco.

Owners cabin is forward of the galley and has a private entry to the head. This cabin is large with a queen island berth surrounded by more beautiful custom wood cabinetry providing plenty of storage for the owners.

This entire yacht has been completely redone both mechanically and cosmetically. With a full custom wood interior for cabinetry, the use of both carpet and maple plank flooring makes her a one of a kind yacht. Headroom throughout most areas of this yacht is seven feet (hard to find on any boat of this size).
