FPB 64 6 details 2 101

The sixth FPB 64 is now undergoing sea trials. She has a new great room layout, and we thought you might like to see a few photos of the galley. It is late, there is lots on our plate, so we’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

    I notice in the spec (on the Berthon site) for the 64 that you’ve changed to Simrad AP50 autopilots. I thought you were a great fan of the WH. Why the change?

    Long story, Bob: Bottom line is that while we’d use Wil’s gear ourselves we feel switching pilots was best. At present we are fitting Com Nav with Accusteer pumpsets.

    Steve, What wood was used in the galley? Is it real or engineered?

    [Reply]

    Steve Dashew Reply:

    Hi Mike: The galley timber is real, not plastic (although some of the new HPLs are almost impossible to tell from the real thing), and cherry.
