The MV Mingulay was custom designed and built by master shipbuilder Dick Smith of the Kaslo Shipyard. Seaworthiness being top of mind, this beautiful steel vessel is built to last. With ¼” steel hull plating over 2”x ¼” angle bar framing she can offer many years of worry-free cruising.
The spacious wheelhouse offers large windows all around and stylish L-shaped seating for panoramic viewing. At the custom-made steering wheel, all the controls and navigation equipment are at the skipper’s fingertips . There is a chart table, storage shelf, motorized toggle searchlight, custom made pull-out double bed and easy access to the upper and lower decks. Forward of the wheelhouse is more deck space and two access hatches. One is a secondary access to the forward bunks, and the other is more storage space.
Step down into the large galley appointed in birch paneling and fir trim. A four-burner stove with oven, fridge, deep sink, on-demand hot water and ample counter space make cooking and entertaining a pleasure. The dining table seats 6 to 8 comfortably and folds down into a double bed for the evening. There is tons of cupboard and storage space for bedding, clothes and supplies.
The vessel features a clean and roomy bathroom with flush toilet, shower, sink, vanity and towel racks. Forward of the galley there are two large bunks with more storage drawers and lots of extra room. There is an aft cabin bedroom with two more large bunks.
The massive walk-in engine room is a delight. It is equipped with a workbench, vise and tool chest and there is plenty of room for more storage, or to add extra custom gear if desired. All equipment is easy to access and work on.
The large after-deck is a great space for a group of anglers to haul in the big ones using the custom-made rod holders and downrigger plates.
The spacious, fully-railed upper deck has lots of room for 12 or more people. Perfect for lounging in the sun and visiting. It features a dinghy with winch and there is room for extra kayaks, paddleboards et cetera..
The fully railed lower deck allows the crew access to the entire perimeter of the vessel, which makes for easy beaching/docking. There is also a custom-built swim ladder for dips in the lake.
The vessel has been recently dry-docked for inspection and all under water running gear has been determined to be in excellent condition. She’s been meticulously maintained and recently Dry-docked for Inspection and Painting top to bottom.
