Your Day on the Water just got better!

“The Golden Rule” is a freshwater boat with upgrade optional forward facing navigation station and 2015 replacement diesel.  She combines ease of handling to the pleasure of on-board comfort.  She’s lively and fast.  Even in light winds, she wants only to make you feel like you’re in control.  Escape for a day, a weekend or more.

She has a bright and inviting interior with varnished teak bulkheads, white overhead, and a teak & holly cabin sole.

The forward cabin provides guests with privacy and comfort.  The double berth has port and starboard shelves and large hanging locker, large tall storage shelving, starboard side sink, deck hatch, and port & starboard reading lights.

The salon’s starboard dinette has storage under and behind plus shelving outboard.  The port seating converts to a single berth with storage under and shelving and cabinets above.  Good light and ventilation are provided by long and smaller ports, three deck hatches, two hull ports and the companionway.

The L-shaped galley to starboard has storage galore.  The deep stainless steel double sinks are near center line with pressure hot and cold water, and 6 gallon hot water heater.  Insulated top-loading ice box (refrigeration in need of repair).  Storage cabinetry and counter tops w/fiddles and compartments, makes food preparation in harbor or underway simple and efficient.  The Eno two burner propane stove with oven is gimbaled.  An opening screened port near the stove and the companionway provide good ventilation while cooking.

The forward facing navigation station is to port across from the galley.

The head to port of the companionway is set up with a (2013)Jabsco manual head & holding tank, pressure hot and cold water, fiberglass sink and counter top, mirror/medicine cabinet, shower stall with independent shower sump pump, cabinets, dome lights, and two coach roof portholes with screens.  A door in the aft end of the shower stall provides access to a hanging wet locker.

The aft cabin to starboard has a large double berth (6’10” X 6’04”) with hanging locker.  The hull port, opening deck hatch and opening cockpit port plus overhead lighting make it all feel light and airy.  Reading lights are in four corners.
