WALKTHROUGH

Merlion is a three stateroom model with flybridge and CAT power.



The AFT COCKPIT can be accessed through a transom door, and is equipped with a Weber Grill & freshwater shower. Her Lazzerette is large enough for most all your cruising gear, and provides excellent access to Steering Gear and Stern Thruster.



SIDE DECKS are wide & covered making handling of lines easy and safe in foul weather, and her PORTUGUESE BRIDGE will be appreciated when going forward in any weather.



Merlion's PILOTHOUSE is furnished with an L shaped Dinette that converts to a private sleeping area for two. The Pilothouse provides direct access to the Salon - Side Decks - Flybridge and all Staterooms. Headroom is 6'5"


 

Merlion's FLYBRIDGE is accessed from the Aft Cockpit or directly from the Pilothouse.

The large fixed aluminum framed top provides protection from the weather.



The BOATDECK is very large and will comfortably accommodate her Tender & Liferaft with plenty of room for tables, chairs and toys.



Merlion's SALON is designed with excellent visibility & natural lighting provided by ten large windows. Her furnishings are not built-in, so they can be easily changed if you desire to do so. Both doors leading to the aft deck are fitted with screens. Cabin sole is Parquet. Headroom is 6'8"



The MASTER STATEROOM is furnished with an island queen bed, night tables, drawers and hanging lockers and is accessed from the Salon or Pilothouse. Portlights provide natural lighting. The owners head is en-suite and accessed from the stateroom, and is equipped with a separate tub/shower. Headroom is 6'4"



The FWD STATEROOM has three berths with new cushions. There are portlights and an overhead deck hatch for natural light and ventilation. Storage in drawers and lockers. Headroom is 6'7"



The BUNKROOM is currently being used as a storage room/ workshop, but can be easily changed back to a third Guest Stateroom. Headroom is 6'3"


Both Guest Staterooms share the Guest Head.



Merlion's ENGINE ROOM is very well laid out and maintained (my favorite part of this vessel...see photos). ALL photos were taken at the time of the listing (Dec 2021).

Jim was born in Coral Gables, Florida, and was introduced to boating at a very early age. Growing-up in a boating community, he spent most of his time on Florida Bay and the Keys. Summers were spent aboard the family cruisier in the Bahamas with the neighborhood Yacht Club.After attending U. of Miami, Jim got married and moved to the Islamorada area, where the family boathouse served as his home for almost 15 years. While working as a dock master at a local marina, Jim acquired his first USCG license, and soon after, started his own commercial fishing business.

In 1989 Jim moved back to the mainland and started a career in the Turf Management Industry in the Palm Beach Gardens area. He eventually worked his way up to the position of Assistant Superintendent, but after eight years wasn’t satisfied with it.

After purchasing a 44’ liveaboard, Jim landed his first maritime job as a deckhand on a casino boat, and the rest is history. He spent the next ten years serving as: Captain of three casino boats – and served as Mate on a jet hydrofoil, cargo ship, fast ferry and a small cruise ship.

Jim decided that shipping out for extended periods of time was not something he wanted to pursue any longer, so he took advantage of an opportunity to build a couple of spec homes in the mountains of North Carolina (Linville/Grandfather Mtn. area).

Jim holds a current 1600/3000 Ton Master Oceans License, SAMS Certificate and a Type Rating for a Dynamically Supported Craft.

After selling his last boat, Jim and his wife Pam now live in the Ft. Pierce Inlet area.

Jim can be reached at jim@curtisstokes.net or call 386-871-4959.

Jim is a graduate of the Yacht Broker Institute.
