1987 Tayana 52 Center Cockpit, Desdemona

Desdemona has a beautiful satin-varnished teak interior with a solid teak and holly sole. Storage space is abundant as is natural light and ventilation provided by seven screened hatches, nine ports, four dorades and six fans.

Starting forward is a large Guest Stateroom with a queen centerline V-berth, a bench-step up to the berth, eight storage lockers, two hanging lockers, two large drawers and under-bench storage. Custom print comforter, coordinating bench cover, print window coverings and a small TV make this a comfortable Guest Suite.

Just aft is an en-suite Head to starboard and an en-suite Shower/Utility room to port. The Shower/Utility room has a combo-washer/dryer (2002), two storage lockers, five drawers and an ample work surface.

The Main Salon, located aft of the guest quarters, features an L-shaped settee to port and a foldout dining table that seats eight when extended. Opposite is a straight settee to starboard with an enclosed TV/VCR outboard. The settees are covered in cream-colored, fire-proof Ultra-suede (2001).

Next aft on the port side is a well designed, chart size, Navigation station and table located next to the centerline companionway. This area also holds a U-Line refrigerator/icemaker and an AM/FM cassette deck and six-disc CD changer with speakers in the salon, cockpit (2002) and both staterooms. The Navigation Station is wired for a computer (with GPS input), modem, phone and fax.

The walkthrough Galley is located starboard and is well thought out for entertaining at anchor or cooking underway. It has abundant locker and drawer space, as well as a pantry/cook's locker. The countertops are cream-colored Wilson-Art (2001). Roomy refrigerator and freezer are both top and front loading.

The Engine Room is located under the cockpit and aft of the companionway stairs, opposite the Galley. Two large removable double doors (2002) and three other doors provide excellent access.

The large Master Stateroom is aft and has a walk-around king centerline berth with a custom, extra firm Handcraft mattress (2001). Custom striped comforter and Ultra-suede covered settee (2001) to starboard were designed to coordinate with the other fabrics throughout the boat. There are two hanging lockers, five storage lockers and two large drawers accompanied by a mirrored dressing table with enclosed TV and storage lockers above. Phone is also located in this cabin. The en-suite Master Head has an electric Raritan Crown head (2001), a true enclosed stall shower, and a large storage locker. Built in hair dryers are in both heads
