The open plan of the saloon which is accessed via the short case of stairs from the wheel house, with a window to the galley and to the wheel house, makes for comfortable lounging in the saloon and enjoyable working in the galley.
Although she was originally built with the two sleeping cabins forward, the main double berth, and a very large triple berth, we are setting her up to sleep four very comfortably up on deck under the stars. Like Pwyll, Tricia cruises at about 6 knots, with or without sails. Michael is still working on the standing and running rigging that has not been used in years. It is mostly there but needs working out properly. Unlike a sailing vessel, on Tricia you can stand upright and walk around freely through out the boat, right up to the berths! Most of the fittings are original, such as the head..
which is a "baby Blake", and takes some muscle to pump!
Michael was very content to find that the head was outfitted with the original double hand pump, a 1938, classic loo. (these are the kind of thing a sailor appreciates)
The forward cabin consists of three single berths which have more space than on most sailing vessels.
Staying aboard a classic yacht such as Tricia is quite a different experience to being on a sailing yacht and may suit your tastes more so than a sailing vacation. Any way you choose, your holiday on the water will be a relaxing, very unique experience.
