Sundeer 64

The layout for the Sundeer 64 series followed closely on what had worked so well with our own Sundeer 67. The aft engine room made one large saloon/galley/office area possible.

The Sundeer 65 and the 56/60 were the only production boats we’ve done. We worked hard with TPI, who built them under our direct supervision, to upgrade their normal standards. Everyone was pleasantly surprised by the results, which the photos do not do justice.

The galley layout,

with fridge/freezer under the pilot house, and bin lockers on top of the counters, was identical to our Sundeer 67.

Office is to starboard, opposite the galley.

The Owner’s suite is, of course, forward. Opposite the bunk is a large hanging locker,

and vanity (this photo is looking aft).

64_Int_9

This bulkhead bolster is an interesting detail. It looks good, and softens the bulkhead when you’re sitting up at night reading.

64_Int_10

Guest cabins are aft. A double on one side and upper/lower bunks on the other. Note the mirrored bulkhead.

64_Int_11

Some of the boats had removable pipe berths installed.

This view is looking aft. The hanging locker is on the left side of the photo.

64_PH_1

After our experience with the pilot house on the 67, we didn’t think anyone should go to sea without such a device, if the boat was big enough to handle it.

64_PH_2

The back end has removable curtains to keep out wind and rain.

Our preference was to keep the interior simple, and trunion mount the electronics.

However, many of our clients ended up with custom enclosures like what is shown above.

The lounging and sailing cockpit are aft of the pilot house.

Twin wheels, and winches laid out so the helmsperson can trim sails, make the Sundeer 64 easy to cruise shorthanded.
