Sleeps up to (4) owners/guests in two staterooms plus two dinette and one settee/lee berth for a total of (7) berths. The MASTER STATEROOM is forward, offering double V-berths with filler; opening overhead hatch; built-in locker storage; and private access to the ENCLOSED HEAD next aft to starboard with integral shower. General access to the head is from the forward walkway; large hanging locker and cabinet storage is opposite on port.
Next aft in the MAIN SALON is a large U-shaped convertible DINETTE, with pull-out leaf extending to the large, single-berth sized settee on port with built-in bookcase over. Next aft to port is the roomy NAVIGATION STATION, with chart table and easily accessible overhead electronics. Opposite the nav station is the U-shaped GALLEY to starboard, featuring pretty and practical ceramic tile counter tops and durable round stainless steel sinks.
Finally aft to port is the well-planned AFT CABIN, with standing headroom at the entrance, a built-in seat and locker outboard, and a double quarter berth. Center line steps between the galley and nav station lead up to the large and sheltered COCKPIT.
INTERIOR aboard 'Trickster' is original, and is excellent condition throughout, featuring the top quality signature Wauquiez teak paneling and joinery; teak and holly cabin sole; and matched upholstery in navy gray. HEADROOM reaches approximately 6'2".
I was the buyers broker for this yacht for the yachts current owner and attended her survey in 2010. From new the yacht was kept in the Great Lakes in fresh water, and each year spent about 7 months out of the water in heated storage while the lake froze. So she's only been in salt water since December 2010 when moved to Seattle, and therefore is in amazing shape for her age. As far as the hull bottom, she's had no blisters (being out of the water more than half the time before the current owner bought her). After arriving here, Delta Marine in Seattle sand off the fresh-water bottom paint and apply an epoxy barrier coat to the bare fiberglass before applying bottom paint suitable for PNW saltwater.
I replaced the sailing instruments in 2017 with the Raymarine S60 series (wind, speed, depth, etc.). At the time I removed the old GPS, after which I've been using my iPhone/iPad apps, which have worked very well, so haven't installed a permanent GPS. There is also a Furuno 821 radar, and an Icom VHF radio. Also in 2017, I replaced both batteries in bank 1 (bank 2 batteries are the ones she had when I purchased her). She is equipped with a Nexus hydraulic autopilot, but this currently isn't working (needs a sensor arm replacement). Another item that is not working is the propane sniffer, but it's still possible to use the stove and oven. There is an 8' inflatable Avon raft with oars. A 35 lb. CQR-style anchor forward with 200' rode and 50' chain, and a large Danforth anchor in the cockpit locker. The installed propane tank valve isn't up to current standards, but there is a new replacement tank filled and ready to go under the aft quarter berth. (I have been trying to use up the fuel before switching them.) Below, she has a two-burner gimballed propane Eno stove with oven, double sink, large fridge with freezer that can freeze ice, hot water heater (works on shore power), head with Lavac toilet, sink and shower. There is also a 12,000 BTU Arctic forced-air diesel heater for cold weather. I had all the foam in the cushions replaced and covers cleaned in 2017 (by a professional: Breezy). The main and jib are UK tape drive (carbon fiber) sails. The jib is approx. 110% and is on a Profurl furler. The main is equipped with lazy jacks. There is also a large Dacron genoa (140%), a 100% working jib, a smaller heavy-weather sail. I might be forgetting one. There is a symmetrical spinnaker and an asymmetrical spinnaker. Also a removable inner forestay (added by the PO). I've had North Sails inspect/repair them regularly, and most recently Carol Hasse in Port Townsend in 2018 while I had a lot of work done by Sea Marine and Brion Toss there. In 2018, I had extensive upgrades done by Brion Toss in Port Townsend (I have receipts totaling $10K). He inspected, serviced, and tuned the standing rigging. He also installed a new Spectra main halyard, replace the lifelines with Spectra (and new gates), and rigged a new preventer system and new chest-high backlines (also with Spectra), new check stays with hardware, a new in-boom 8:1 outhaul system, a new Cunningham, and new dock lines (Spectra). Other upgrades at that time were new genoa cars, removed and cleaned and serviced all winches, and new lines on the rigid boom vang. Also in 2018, I had Sea Marine in Port Townsend do a lot of repairs and upgrades, including new companionway boards, new blackwater tank, replace the port water filler, gelcoat repair, teak varnish removal and sanding, bottom paint, buff and wax topsides, etc. (receipts total $12K). In 2019, I removed the Bimini and dodger (I still have these, though the dodger canvas needs repair before using again), replaced all interior lights with LEDs, removed and adjusted all doors for proper closing clearance, cleaned all bilges, interior hull surfaces, cabinets, and cockpit lockers, brought all safety equipment current (the boat passed a Coast Guard inspection last fall), added a boarding step, re-whipped the fender lines, and a handful of other minor projects.
