1999 | Celestial | Annapolis, MD |Sold Price: $ 82,000
Merdeka is a 1999 Celestial 50 Pilothouse, cutter rig, designed by Bryce Fuhriman. Celestial yachts are well known for their stout off-shore minded construction. Above decks is a nicely placed center cockpit with a commanding view in all directions. The high cockpit bulwarks lend to a dry and safe position to take the helm. High lifelines and roomy side-decks allow easy movement forward and aft. There is ample storage in the aft lazarettes and in the forward lockers.
Below deck entry is gained from the cockpit or the starboard pilothouse door. The raised salon with large picture windows allows for uncompromising views as the world goes by. The interior helm is nicely positioned and has great visibility, something that many pilothouse yachts lack. Lovely quality of rich woods adorn the interior.
Forward of the salon is the galley to port and four person dinette to starboard. The galley is spacious and arranged perfectly for all your gourmet cooking needs. Continuing forward is the day/guest head and forward guest V-berth.
Going aft, down the stairs from the salon, is the aft cabin. This cabin is quite large and includes tons of storage space. The attached head includes a soaking tub.
Mechanical access is easy due to the large hatches in the salon deck. Gear is easy to service and there is extra storage there as well. A true offshore boat, she is equipped with a sea-chest with twin redundant inlets. This limits the amount of below waterline penetrations to only a few.
Merdeka has travelled near and far. She has been in Northern Europe, several Trans-Atlantic's, and throughout the US East Coast. She is well poised and priced to continue her journeys. You will not find a better deal for a yacht with the breadth of gear and space that Merdeka offers. Contact the central listing agent today to schedule your private showing.
