Sozo has been a wonderful liveaboard and cruising boat for her current owners, who are moving up in size. They have spent a lot of time and energy improving her, and it really shows. The Jefferson 57 is a traditional pilothouse motor yacht whose sturdy appearance and comfortable accommodations will appeal to serious cruisers.
The three-stateroom, two-head interior delivers just about everything buyers are looking for in a boat of this type including an ample master suite and an equally comfortable VIP guest cabin. The galley is in the salon, and the spacious pilothouse—the focal point of the boat—has a dining table as well as port and starboard deck doors. The teak woodwork found throughout the Jefferson’s interior is notable for its high-gloss finish and meticulous workmanship. The cockpit is large and inviting, and both it and side decks are sheltered by bridge overhangs. There is a very spacious engine room and a deep and full-beam lazarette that offers plenty of storage.
Another place where Sozo really shines is the huge flybridge with seating for a small crowd. 2/3rds of the flybridge has a recently-added full enclosure with sliding openings, comfortable seating, and twin Stidd chairs at the helm for comfort underway. Built on a semi-displacement hull with a deep, prop-protecting keel, the Jefferson 57 will cruise at 9-11 knots with 450hp Cummins diesels.

The full-beam Master Cabin is midship, with an adjoining head and (very spacious) shower compartment. There is a great amount of storage to port and starboard of the Queen-sized bed, via twin hanging lockers (including one that is very deep and allows for boxes of shoes, or large storage bins), and plenty of drawers and a great load of extra storage underneath the bed. You won't know what to do with all the space, and it's perfect for liveaboards.

Hull / Steering:
The flybridge can be accessed from a set of stairs aft (There is a stainless-steel framed glass hatch), or from the pilothouse. The fly is split up into three areas: an upper helm, with two STIDD chairs, with seating behind. Then down two stairs is a comfortable seating patio, with facing L-shaped seating for easily 12. There's a teak folding table and a console with a sink, a fridge/icemaker, storage, and counter space. Further aft is the back deck which is for storing a tender, which can be lifted by a 1,500 Lb capacity Nick Jackson davit. There is a large BBQ installed on the rail to starboard.
