There is a total of 5 Atkins and Hoyle deck hatches and 3 has new lens. Two dorados with large ventilators. The chain plates mounts surround the hull from deck to deck and 2 longitudinal stringers glassed to the hull. All bulkheads and cabinetry are glassed to hull and deck. At the mast are safety bars for security. Going aft is a hardtop dodger c/w hand holds. Forward of this is a mount for a life raft. The cockpit has a teak grate. Several eyebolts to fasten safety harness to are in the cockpit. Included is a drop leaf cockpit table. There is a large awning that goes from mast to the stern also a smaller bimini over the cockpit. Deck is solid with never any water intrusion.

This boat can sleep 6

There is a double berth forward with 4" foam and special material under for ventilation. Beside this berth is a counter with a slide away stool. In the saloon are two settees which can be used for sleeping c/w lee clothes. The large drop leaf table can seat 8/10 folks. Across from the head are 2 large cedar lined hanging lockers. The head door can be used to close off forward area from rest of the boat. Upholstery is covered in an ultra-suede type material and looks like new. The sole is solid teak screwed to 1/2" ply and is totally removable to allow access to tanks etc.. There are lots of hand holds and one can move from companion way to forward while holding on. The passenger and quarter berths are excellent and secure at sea c/w lee clothes. As opposed to boats with cabinetry pushed out to hull sides to create large open spaces, Chapter II's design allows for secure movement and has a large amount of storage. A Dickenson diesel fuel floor mounted heater is vented through the deck giving you comfortable dry heat. We have gone for months in cool Mediterranean winters with this heater. The companion way steps have 2 large drawers with one custom fitted for included tools. Beside the quarter berth is a locker for wet gear and behind that is great storage where an engine would normally be. There is a grate and tray at the base of the steps to catch moisture and dirt.

The head in this boat features one manual head with macerator, Y-value for holding tank or overboard discharge. A sink, shower and vanity.

The Galley: The stove is a Shipmate propane 3 burner, oven and broiler. This is a great stove and always served the owners well. Refrigeration is a Grunnert Versamatic with separate freezer and refer. It uses hold over plates in the freezer with digital fan control to cool the refrigerator side. The compressor runs off a special alternator on the engine, shore power, or off batteries through an invertor. There is a double stainless steel sink on the centerline and works well on either tack. A microwave is also included. Four drawers hold cutlery and lots of storage for dishes, pots and food.

The interior appointments include Dickinson Artic heating; Curtains, Ultra Swede brown upholstery. Vinyl headliner and a solid teak cabin sole.


Four stainless steel water tanks hold about 150 gallons. Manifolds for intake and outlet make it easy to monitor usage. An 8-gallon water heater operates from shore power and the engine. The head is a top rated Wilcox-Crittenden Skipper with holding tank and pump out. Five bilge pumps: engine sump, electric bilge sump, Whale 35gpm bilge sump, manual pump in cockpit and a pump in head for shower. All outlets have high loops to prevent back flooding. Holding tank.

Owner's Comments

Chapter II does not need the many upgrades of others her age. She is ready to leave on an Ocean voyage tomorrow. Her hull and deck are super strong. The bow thruster, equipment and trailer which is in excellent condition sets her apart from the competition. The boat is stored is a climate controlled building and can be showed in any weather.
