Boarding COMANCHE is over the covering boards from a fixed dock or through the transom door from a floating dock.The Cockpit is immense with a centered offset pedestal fighting chair and double central steps the Salon flanked by all the freezer, bait prep, tackle storage you would want.The counter balanced doors open to a large Salon with seating groups both port and starboard.An updated LED TV faces the starboard side sofa area.The Galley is to port forward and discretely masked by the fine joinery.To starboard is additional concealed freezer space.Centerline steps lead to the four cabins below.All four cabins are en suite:First to port is a twin lower bunk cabin with oversize berths.Opposite to starboard is an over under cabin with two outboard berths.Next forward is the Companionway Laundry Center with an updated Whirlpool washer and separate dryer.Opposite to starboard is the Fourth Cabin used for the crew with upper and lower berths outboard.All the way forward is the Master Cabin with a centerline king berth, small settee and a very large head and shower not usually found on yachts of this size, let alone a Convertible Sportfisherman.The enclosed Pilothouse is accessed via a ten step ladder from the Cockpit.There is an abundance of seating plus there is an observation deck aft with two swivel fish chairs as well as an aft control station for fishing.
The Salon is entered via a centerline counter balanced door.The first impression is of a huge open one level area that stretches 26 feet forward to the three panel windshield forward.This area includes the Galley which blends into the Salon and is unobtrusive as a Galley can be!Large fixed side windows allow huge amounts of natural light.Electric light filtering Roman shades provide some privacy, full black out shades port and starboard and aft provide full privacy.Immediately to starboard upon entering is a large U shaped leather settee to seat six people.The forward corner has a built in end table with a decorative wood table lamp above.In front of the sofa is a high low cocktail/dining table with two hinged leaves at the ends.To port aft are two oversize built in upholstered chairs separated by a built in end table.Just aft of the table is the Salon’s entertainment electronics to include a Yamaha AV receiver with Blue Tooth connectivity, six channel Surround Sound, a Direct TV HD DVR, receiver, an Audiovox DVD player and two USB charger outlets for phones/iPads.Next forward is a bar area with a lit liquor locker, a Whirlpool Wet-Ice icemaker and glass storage for wine, champagne, hi ball and cocktail glasses.All of these elements are hidden and blended into the cabinetry.Facing the couch is a newer Samsung 46” LED TV that can be hidden behind tambour doors as desired.Overhead in the Salon Galley area is rod storage for up to 25 rods.Also overhead in this area are 14 LED lights, a smoke and fire sensor plus five Bose mini cube speakers.The sole is carpeted with a recent neutral tone plush carpet.
The Galley is next forward to port but very much open to the Salon.The shape is in a rectangle making the best use of the available space.The countertops and sole are in Black Galaxy granite.A timber sea rail surrounds the countertop and is the only separation between the Galley and the Salon.Galley equipment includes:Deep under mount double stainless steel sinkInstahot water faucetFiltered drinking water faucetRemovable spray faucetSlide out trash receptacle/cabinetSide by side custom stainless steel refrigerators with wood facesFull Jenn-Air oven & Ceran top 4 burner cooktop w/central exhaust fan all hidden in cabinets & under hinged top granite countertopsPopup Kenmore microwave/convection oven disappears when not in use(7) Cabinets, several w/slide out shelves(5) Drawers(5) Additional overhead rod holders forward(12) Overhead LED lightsGarbage disposalElectric window shades & black out curtains

In an effort to remove one possible impediment to a sale,COMANCHEwas hauled for a bottom inspection/ultrasound.A “Defelsko” ultrasonic thickness gauge was used to test over 572 different carefully graphed stations in the underwater hull area by a noted local surveyor.In addition the props were pulled, Prop Speed added, shaft run out measured at the taper “in place”, all four strut bearings measured.Results:1)No apparent wastage or pitting the aluminum2)Antifouling in good condition3)Epoxy barrier coat was adhering well to the hull plating4)Shaft run out tolerance less than .0035)Bearing tolerance less than .020See photos labeled 8/30/18 Bottom Inspection
During 2005 COMANCHE received a complete Engine Room redesign and refit.Work included new engines, transmissions, generator, exhaust systems, pumps, HVAC systems and much more!At that time many of the boat’s electronic systems (AV and navigation) were updated as well.
Sold by the listing broker to the current owners 24 years ago, COMANCHE remains an icon in yachting circles.She was built as the second of two GALLANT LADY Feadship Sportfisherman.At the time of her build there were no larger pedigree “Yacht Fisherman” on the water.While the market has dictated newer larger and faster Sportfisherman none have the class, grace or quality of a Feadship.Largely in fact to her original design only systems have been upgraded.Her original Feadship features remain.Your chance to “own an icon.”
