Designed for global adventuring, CABOCHON is unique. She has a raised pilothouse with inside steering station, shoal draft and a foil-shaped centerboard for upwind performance under sail. Construction is fiberglass with laminates of Kevlar for strength and rigidity. With her Hood/Fontaine low-wetted surface hull form, there is unparalleled volume belowdecks. CABOCHON’s spacious accommodations and living space are rarely found in a sailboat of her size, especially one that sails like her and that captures the eye with such flowing and beautiful lines.

CABOCHON has accommodations for six adults and two children in the owner’s party, with three large private staterooms aft, split-level dining/lounge areas amidships, plus two en-suite cabins forward of the galley for crew. Joinery is finely crafted Euro-style teak with a gloss varnish finish.
The large pilothouse, originally designed for inclement weather, has quickly become the center of activity aboard CABOCHON. It is light and airy with excellent visibility all around. To port is a U-shaped settee and teak table that seats six, great for informal meals, cocktails or just planning the day's activities.
To starboard and forward is the navigation area with throttle and autopilot control, complete with all electronics, nav table and helmsman's seat. Aft of the nav area is a wet bar and coffee machine.
Entered from the pilothouse down full-sized easy-access stairs and hallway, the master stateroom aft has two queen sized beds, port and starboard, a makeup area, two cedar-lined hanging lockers, plenty of storage space and his and hers bathrooms. Aft, a centerline vestibule leads to a private aft cockpit.
Forward of the master stateroom and separated by a passageway are two guest staterooms, each with en-suite head and stall shower. Both guest staterooms have two twin beds, plus fold-away Pullman berths for children. Both cabins have cedar-lined hanging lockers, plenty of storage space, two opening portholes for ventilation and deck prisms for additional natural light.
The full-beam salon is open to the pilothouse salon, so that the pilothouse windows reach over 50 percent of the salon. Two hatches provide abundant natural light in the salon. To starboard there is a dining area for six. To port is an L-shaped couch with coffee table and a 40" LCD TV connected to a satellite dish as well as to the central navigation computer. In addition to ample dry storage, there is a built-in wine rack, refrigerator and ice maker (new 2015).
Forward of the main salon, a sliding teak door, as well as a watertight MCA door, lead to a large, U-shaped galley and crew mess. The fully-equipped galley has a large hatch for light and/or fresh air while at anchor, so the running of A/C (new 2013/2017) is often an elective. There are multiple freezer compartments to support “around-the-world” adventuring.
Two double crew cabins are located forward of the galley. Each cabin has its own sink and toilet and shares a centrally located shower.
The crew mess is equipped with its own entertainment center, including LCD TV (new 2017), DVD, CD and radio. The Miele washer (new 2015) and Miele dryer are located beside the crew mess for easy access.
Aft of the pilothouse is a large cockpit protected by a rigid bimini top and dodger (both new 2010) for maximum comfort. There is a U-shaped seating area to port with a teak table that opens for cocktails or on-deck dining. Opposite to starboard is an L-shaped seating area with an additional teak table. Blue cushions with white piping (new 2015) complement the “Whisper Gray” Awlgrip house (new 2015). Awlgripped teak trim and teak deck. In the cockpit there is a top-loading refrigerator to port of the pilothouse companionway and cabinet space to starboard.
Aft of the cockpit area is the raised helm area. A U-shaped settee surrounds the 4.5 foot wheel and pedestal, which accommodates navigational instruments, compass, engine controls and toggle controls for easy command and control of all sail handling. CABOCHON can literally be sailed by just one person without leaving the helm.
On the aft deck, there is a private owners' cockpit and hydraulic swim platform for easy access to and from the water.
Navigation and communications equipment is MCA- and Global Maritime Distress & Safety System (GMDSS) compliant.
The ship's hydraulics are an integrated system designed by Maxpower. This system allows the functions to be powered by three sources: Maxpower DC-pump or (2) Rexroth Genset driven PTO's. Backstay hydraulics overhauled (2013)
The hull is built with composite material and a sandwich structure using Core-cell foam core. An additional five layers of Kevlar were incorporated for extra strength. The deck and pilothouse are also sandwich construction with E-glass. Centerboard configuration offers minimum draft of 6”-6” with board up and a maximum draft of 18’ with board down. New rudder bearings (2013/2016). New bottom paint (October, 2017).
Classification: Lloyd's Construction Hull Certificate
Large well-laid-out engine room (new paint 2015) with easy access to all pumps and power, stand-up headroom next to main engine.
Built for an experienced yachtsman and launched in December, 2004, CABOCHON's stout construction, world-class features and attention to detail are evident everywhere, from her robust practical engineering and redundant systems, to beautifully book-matched teak joinery and dovetailed drawers. CABOCHON is remarkable in that she brings so many desirable features – shoal draft (board up = 6’6”/ board down = 18’), performance under sail and comfort at sea, to name a few – together all in one beautiful vessel. She has recently completed a major yard refit, including pulling the mast, all new rigging, an entire new (Awlgrip) paint job that encompassed the hull, superstructure, davits, mast, boom and spreaders, painting and repair of all hatches, new interior varnish, new carpet and new soft goods. With fresh bottom paint, she is ready for her next owner.
Exceptional value – inspection highly recommended.
