Entrance to the main saloon is via sliding doors from the aft deck and there is a U-shaped settee to port with an entertainment centre including a large flat screen television set to starboard. Forward to starboard is a dining area with a custom crafted table seating eight guests while the saloon is separated from the galley by a cabinet housing two fridge drawers, an ice maker and storage cabinets for tableware.

Al fresco cocktails and dining are available on the aft deck at a custom table and built in upholstered settees. Steps lead up to the sky lounge designed for pure relaxation, offering a comfortable cocktail seating area in front of an entertainment centre with a bar close to hand, while aft on the upper deck is a Jacuzzi tub.

Twin 475hp Detroit Diesel engines give her a sedate but comfortable cruising speed of eight knots.

Lying in Seattle, Washington, Surfbird was asking $2,900,000.
