Tapestry is listed for sale after her owners lived aboard and cruised extensively for over 6 years. She is owned by an experienced yachtsman couple who are a seaworthy team, they understand the importance of keeping their vessel ready to go and “ship shape”.
Located in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, Tapestry is positioned to depart for New England waters or head down the east coast to the Chesapeake and beyond. Maybe a short turn south – cruising to the Florida Keys and then hopping over to the Caribbean? With Tapestry, it’s your call. This vessel is easy to learn how to run offshore, practical, and ultimately capable of helping you explore the coasts and cross the seas from the comfort of a beautiful waterfront home. Please get in touch to schedule a visit to see for yourself and read on to learn more.
Prior to offering her for sale, the current owner has thoughtfully gone through the boat to address normal maintenance issues and to help ensure that all systems are current and will be ready for the next adventurous caretaker. As part of this refreshing, Tapestry had numerous upgrades during the current ownership (see inventory below).
Powered by twin John Deere 6068TFM50 main engines (158 bhp each), she also boasts 12kW and 20kW Northern Lights® generators, ABT® TRAC hydraulic active stabilizers (9 Sq. Ft. Fins), ABT® 25HP hydraulic Bow thruster and is equipped throughout with many liveaboard comforts including a Spectra 24V 400gpd water maker, and five Cruisair® reverse cycle climate control units.
The outside areas include a cockpit in the stern with full enclosures (one set in EZ2C Clear glass and the second set in no see-um screening), a console, sink, and wash-down (hot/cold) shower. The cockpit and starboard side decks are teak. A stately Portuguese Bridge provides safety and voluminous storage, as well as an outside Docking Station to starboard. The foredeck has built in seating with lockers underneath and a Maxwell® 3500 double chainwheel hydraulic windless w/capstan. The boat deck includes a seating area surrounded by textilene privacy/safety screening on all rails, plus a separate tender storage area with chocks for the included AB RIB® 7-person tender with 60 HP Yamaha® four stroke outboard– easily deployed by the Nautical Structures® Euro 1200 (lbs.) hoist.
The flybridge has two helm chairs for side-by-side enjoyment underneath a Bimini top and an L shaped settee with cushions and a table. This is a great location for operating underway (navigation equipment and helm new in 2016) and a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view once you are settled.
Main Engines: John Deere model 6068TFM50 diesels producing 158 bhp @ 2400 rpm (M1 rating) coupled to Twin Disc transmissions.
COCKPIT AND SWIM PLATFORM
Vessel boarding from the stern is via the swim platform with access to the boat through the transom door or port side cockpit door. There are three removeable stainless staple rails installed for swim platform convenience and aft boarding safety. Shore power electrical connections are conveniently located in the cockpit as well as at the bow. A console with freshwater sink and storage below is also in the cockpit.

Next to the settee there is a cabinet with drawer and vented lower storage and the sofa has storage below as well. Directly in front of the settee is a large hi-lo table with foldouts and ample seating for up to twelve (with additional seating). The salon is spacious due to the wide body design and there is plenty of room for extra chairs or an additional sofa.

Moving forward from the galley you can go up to the pilothouse or down a short flight of steps to the lower-level living quarters comprised of two staterooms, an office utility area, Bosch 800 series washer and dryer, two full heads with separate showers, guest stateroom, and owner stateroom forward.
PORT OFFICE and UTILITY AREA

STARBOARD GUEST STATEROOM
Across from the office utility area is the comfortable starboard guest stateroom with two separate single gest beds with fitted covers with a single nightstand in between. The port wall has a large hanging locker and two portlights with screens help brighten the space. The stateroom has a private entry door into the full day-head which creates an ensuite cabin for convenience and privacy. Stylish decorative tan carpet adds comfort over the parkay wood flooring.
The guest head is just forward of the port guest stateroom and has center hall access as well as an ensuite guest entry. There is a single sink with vanity above and double vented cabinet below. The head is an electric Tecma fresh water flush toilet and there is a large linen locker on the opposite wall. To the starboard side is a stand-up shower with seat and bi-fold doors.

Capable of extended journeys the helm has all of the necessary electronics, updated navigation electronics, and all required safety equipment. Secured from both sides with aluminum welded weather tight “Dutch” sea-doors, both with Phantom screens.
The helm has a Stidd Captain’s chair and directly forward is an oversized stainless destroyer wheel. Directly center are two 16” Garmin displays that are the center of information and control capable of showing navigation, radar activity, sonar, AIS, camera views of the engine room, salon, and stern, and other information. The engines are controlled by a ZF dual lever station that combines forward, reverse, and speed for each engine. In addition, an iPad attached to a I-Bolt adjustable mount conveys and provides navigation back-up. To each side of the helm station is storage in the form of vented cabinets, drawers, and double chart drawers. Directly behind the helm is the L-shaped watch settee with Ultra-leather that also converts to a double berth with storage available directly under the settee. The pilothouse also has dual sliding windows to port and starboard and two rear portlights, all with screens.
The Kadey Krogen 58 Pilothouse is rugged looking and has an appropriate stature with a tall bow that will cleave the waves and offer a dry ride in most sea conditions. The ground tackle arrangement includes a Maxwell® 3500 double chainwheel hydraulic windlass w/capstan and a self-launching Rocna 70 (154 lb) main anchor. The bow pulpit secures two separate anchors on individual rollers. Shore power connections plus fresh and a seawater washdown provide extra convenience in this area. The deck is uncluttered with two opening hatches above the master stateroom. Forward of the pilothouse windows is the Portuguese Bridge with center access to the foredeck and built-in storage lockers.
The inflatable AB model VST 13ft Tender with 60hp Yamaha engine is stowed on the aft boat deck, which is above the cockpit. You can access the boat deck up a few stairs from the port side of the pilothouse or Portuguese Bridge. All areas of Tapestry are accessed by conventional stairs, no ladders involved. With the dinghy launched via a Nautical Structures® Euro 1200® (lbs.) hoist you have a tremendous deck area available to enjoy.
The raised flybridge is a few easy steps up from the boat deck and provides a commanding view. The helm is ergonomically designed so that all the monitors, gauges, switches, controls/ sightlines are clear. There is an additional helm chair on the port bench so that Co-Captains can both see over the bow. A full Bimini top provides shade and weather cover, and the main mast can be lowered for bridges or tight clearances. There is an L shaped cushioned settee to port with a table in front of it, a comfortable spot for dining, entertaining, or napping!
