Accommodations

Equinox's interior is warm and inviting. Thirteen opening ports and screens w/ eight hatches with OceanAir screens & shades provide abundant light and air flow. You'll admire the beautiful furniture quaility satin gloss varnish applied to the select teak hardwood veneers on the bulkheads and all cabinetry. As you descend the companionway ladder, you will see the open salon with full length settees on both sides covered in beautiful champagne UltraLeather (Always covered & now with NEW custom covers). The starboard settee extends toward the centerline to make a comfortable double berth and both settees can double as seaberths. A cedar lined hanging locker is outboard with a shelf above. The dining table is Island Packet's signature fold-up bulkhead-mounted table. When deployed it will accommodate a large group and then conveniently stores away when not in use.

There is a very nice forward-facing navigation center with seating for two, large varnished chart table, storage tray, generous nav/electronics panel with master AC/DC electrical panels. The comfortable wide bench seat has removable panels beneath revealing the dedicated generator compartment. There is also a custom teak printer table forward of the Nav Station.

The forward owner's stateroom spans the beam of the yacht and includes a generous offset island berth with access on both sides so you don't have to disturb your partner when getting out of bed. The berth is hinged and can be raised on gas support struts to reveal ample storage. There is a cedar-lined hanging locker and teak bureau, a custom Handcraft 7" innerspring mattress with a 3" foam top provides for exceptional comfort. A nice dressing seat to port adds a final touch. A luxurious private head is located adjacent to the stateroom and features a large stall shower with folding acrylic doors, Vacuflush toilet, vanity w/ acrylic countertop and molded sink. Mirrored storage cabinets and large drawers finish this impressive head.

The aft guest stateroom also features a large offset double island berth, a roomy cedar-lined hanging locker with extra height rods outboard, and an array of cabinets, bins, and shelves. As in the owner's stateroom, the berth top hinges on gas struts to reveal lots of storage beneath.

The aft head is just as nice as the forward with the same acrylic counter-tops, separate shower stall with seat and folding acrylic doors, and VacuFlush toilet. A door is conveniently located near the companionway in the main salon plus an additional door for private access from the stateroom.

The roomy cockpit is safe and comfortable with custom Jason Iverson bimini & dodger. The large swim platform features twin molded-in steps to port and starboard, a hot/cold shower and a fold-out swim ladder. Full length, ergonomically shaped cockpit seats w/ full cushions, (2) Paradise Sport-A-Seats covered in green Sunbrella,  dual deep seat lockers, line storage bins, extra wide coamings with numerous storage bins, four harness padeyes, two 2' cockpit scuppers, engine panel adjacent to helm in covered alcove.

She is a very well thought out, capable world cruiser that can take you anywhere you want to go in comfort and safety. She represents the best priced 440 in the world. Her owners are exceptionally realistic and invite you on board to preview their exceptional cruising "home".
