Accommodations & Layout

The vessel is arranged with a boarding amidships port and starboard on the main deck.  Access to the forward deck is via doors port and starboard.  Heads are forward on the centerline.  The beverage bar is abaft of the heads.  Open salon seating completes the reminder of the main deck.  An aft sternway provides access between the main and 01 decks.  The wheelhouse is forward on the 01 deck, an enclosed area aft of the wheelhouse that would be a wonderful spot for a beverage bar.  The remainder of the 01 deck offers open air space to passengers.


The SIGHTSEER is in good condition.  The yacht offers a sleek style and wonderful viewing for passengers.


Soda systems are on lease and not offered with the vessel.
