Intermezzo II’s interior look was similar in concept to Wakaroa, except that it was compacted into a 10-foot shorter (62-foot) hull. Above is the nerve center of the boat, the galley. Note the fixed stove on the aft bulkhead. Except for baking at sea when heeled, this worked out well and kept the cook out of the line of fire should anything come flying off the stove.
The saloon, looking aft towards the galley presented a very pleasing view.
The saloon table – which seats five on the settees and another three on the folding chairs. The fiddles in the middle worked well for keeping condiments and serving dishes in place.
Settee opposite the table and a modest entertainment center.
Ship’s office is to starboard, opposite the galley.
We used this desk with a manual typewriter to write the first of our books. Later on we acquired an early computer with which we did our second book.
We use double pole breakers on our aluminum boats, which require a fair amount of room.
Owner’s suite is forward.
Note the mirror at the foot of the bed. Using mirrors on bulkheads really opens up the visual space. The large hull window is also nice for light and a sense of spaciousness.
There are a pair of double cabins aft. The lower bunks are “cozy” size for two adults (who are in love). The upper bunks work well for storage, and the odd guest. Note the overhang, or lack thereof between upper and lower bunks.
A different type of teak was used on these 62s. This teak is from Thailand.
