Beyzano has 3 sleeping cabins, 2 heads (shower, toilet and sink), a large saloon with 3 sofas and an extending table, a galley with a double sink, ice box, front opening frige, top opening freezer, a 2 burner gas hob and oven and plenty of storage. She also has a well equipped navigation desk with a VHF Radio and SSB.
We have made just a few changes to the interior adding a rail into the forward shower so it can be used as a full length hanging wardrobe for long dresses (had to take one ball dress just in case!), new taps and corian worktop to the galley, a freezer in the coolbox and sprung mattresses in the forward cabin. For the warmer weather we have fitted fans to all the cabins. The only other ‘domestic’ item we purchased is the generator, so we can have shore power anywhere. Downside is that watermakers and generators seem to be the most unreliable pieces of equipment mentioned in most blogs, so fingers crossed ours behave.
She still has the original porthole covers and leather upholstery although I did think it was synthetic and used to clean it with cif! Ooops. The first 2 owners kept the woodwork pretty much unmarked throughout, using velcro to stick up pictures rather than screws. This was quite important to us when buying the boat, as some owners customise them to such an extent, it seemed we would need to completely gut the interior and start again to get it looking smart.
We installed a 19 inch TV/DVD/Plotter repeater/Card Reader screen when we lived on Beyzano, before we left the UK and could get digital TV there. It fits into the gap between the grab pole and the bookshelf on a swinging, locking heavy duty bracket.
An extra wooden batten helps support it when it is in the nav position and we have a console for controlling the plotter informaton, in just the same way as we use the E120 at the helm. This makes passage planning and checking very easy from the nav desk.
We just unlock it and swing it back in front of the bookshelf to watch DVDs but at sea it is always in the nav position, to take advantage of the extra support.
There weren’t any issues with it during the Atlantic Crossing and it has been great for watching films with friends as several people can sit on the starboard sofa and still see the screen.
We also had a lee cloth made for the long sofa on the port side, which is excellent for sleeping on at sea.
It just ties to the hand rail above and is screwed to the wood under the cushions. It folds up under the sofa when not in use.
