Forward, all three versions share s the same great Master Stateroom - the 1.5 SR version has an ensuite half-head and the 2 SR version, an ensuite full head with stall shower. All have the same “Island Queen” - all have a pair of hanging lockers port & starboard - all have a 17” LED HDTV with HD receiver & DVR - all have opening hatch and portlights with screens.
Aft of the master is where the differences begin:
The 1 SR version has and eat-in galley down (under the windscreen which becomes a sunny skylight). There is a roomy dinette, high-tech refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, washer/dryer, radiant cooktop and GE Profile Advantium microwave/speed-cook oven/hood.
The 1.5 SR version has a study/guest & pantry down. The study is open to the passageway during the day - has an L-shaped settee, storage & a wall unit with TV and fold-down desk. The pantry is in the area just aft of the master and has a 2-drawer Vitrifrigo freezer with ice maker and extra storage for galley items.
Both the 1 SR & 1.5 SR share the same roomy head to port with stall shower, Vacuflush toilet and molded vanity. There is good storage and an opening portlight.
The 2 SR version has a full guest head with stall shower. Just aft of the guest head, is the drawer freezer w/ice maker and the Combo washer/dryer (over the freezer). There is a step down into the guest stateroom. In the guest is a queen to starboard with hanging locker and dresser near the foot of the berth. A 32” LED HDTV is mounted over the foot of the berth.
The 1 SR deckhouse has a special open feeling - helm chairs are mounted on high-low pedestals and rotate to become loungers when not underway. To port, is an additional entry door - aft is the entertainment center. To starboard, is an L-shaped settee that converts to an extra-long double berth at night. The moveable, high-low table houses a pair of ottomans for extra dinner guests or for comfortable foot rests pulled up to the lowered helm chairs or the settee. The 26” LED HDTV is hidden behind a pair of pocketing doors, along with the DirecTV receiver/DVR and Bose home theater.
The 1.5 SR deckhouse has a galley up to port with the same cook top as on the 1 SR version. Under the cook top is a pair of Vitrifrigo refrigerator drawers. Opposite, is a pair of helm chairs with raised cabin sole and the GE Profile Advantium oven underneath. Aft of the galley to port is a love seat rounding out the conversation area. Lift the seat, and the 26” HDTV is revealed in essentially the same viewing position as that of the 1 SR version. The L-shaped settee is virtually identical to that of the 1 SR - the dining table is permanently mounted on a high-low pedestal and converts to a drop leaf coffee table or the base for the double berth. The ottoman from the study can be brought up for an extra dinner guest.
The 2 SR deckhouse has the galley halfway up and still a part of the social scene of the saloon. There is the same radiant cooktop as on the other models and a drawer refrigerator under the counter. Located under the expansive glass windscreen, this galley is both efficient and bright. The freezer drawers w/ice maker are a couple steps down, on the accommodation level. The helm of the 2 SR version is raised similar to that of the 1.5 SR, but the chairs are mounted on high/low swiveling pedestals with the added advantage of being able to be used as part of the conversation area when swung around. There is a door just to starboard of the helm.
The helm is similar for all versions. Same Garmin electronics - same joystick and electronic engine controls - same gauges - same great view over the bow at any speed. Natural ventilation is from the opening “Eyebrows” over the fixed windscreen - ALL versions have the handy sliding door at the helm - perfect for single-handed docking.
A word about the helm chairs: Island Pilot uses custom bucket seats, similar to a “Recaro-syled” seat normally found in a high-performance European sports sedan. These seats use the same color Ultraleather you choose for your other upholstery - they have adjustable back rests and individual arm rests. These seats hold you in place in a sea way and are comfortable for a full-day’s cruising. They even make great loungers or a spot to catch a quick nap.
The exteriors of all 3 versions are the same. All the versions have the same roomy aft deck with superb access to the motors. All have the built-in aft settee with stairs outboard leading to the integrated swim platform. All have the L stairs leading to the bridge. All have the same wide decks surrounding the accommodation.
