KOUKLA'S accommodations are warm and welcoming with plenty of overhead space in the open main salon. It is bright inside in part due to the light colored overhead and numerous ports and large windows. The bench seating to port and starboard have storage beneath and shelving behind and the seats curve along the hull line to form a perfect setting for entertaining and relaxing. Handsome teak parquet floors match the teak-on-teak interior, and are on a single level with no steps. There is a handsome roll- away liquor cupboard on the port side. From the companionway you'll find the galley to port and a dinette table to starboard. The dinette table is convertible to a two-person berth, and the seats are covered in high end and washable "Ultra Suede". The navigation station is located just aft of the dinette along the passageway leading aft to the master stateroom.
The master stateroom features a raised full queen-size bed with hanging lockers, one large cedar drawer, eight additional cupboards and drawers, plus a mirrored vanity. There is bedding storage, shelving and storage beneath. It also has a private en-suite featuring a bath tub and shower, electric head, and mirrored sink with Corian counter tops with three cupboard storage below, and linen storage in the tub area.
Access to the engine room space aft is through a access panel from the master bath, or from the side along the corridor near the nav station. The AC/DC electrical panel is also located there.
Forward from the main salon there is a very comfortable forward stateroom with a raised two-person V-berth, with a large shelf area and mirrored cupboard with three deep drawers and a hanging locker. Aft of the forward stateroom, there is a laundry space and full en-suite to starboard, and a shop space to port. Like the in the master head the forward head is also an electric flushing head, with an adjacent mirrored sink with Corian counter top and four storage cabinets.

There are two 2-burner stove tops; one a Kenyon electric stove top, the other is Miele gas stove top. Plus a convection/microwave oven near the 11 cu ft inch upright refrigerator.

Hull and Deck
KOUKLA was built and customized for blue water sailing. Her hull is solid fiberglass below the waterline with FRP foam/balsa wood sandwich cored above the waterline and deck surfaces for stiffness and insulation. New bottom paint, Micron 66 (5 year) was applied during April 2018 haul out. Her Hull and deck is painted with Awlgrip.
As a professional engineer, the owner has fitted KOUKLA to be handled from inside the safety of the cockpit. The vessel has aviation grade hydraulic systems installed to activate most of the deck systems and equipment, such as the windlass, genoa, jib, main and mizzen roller furlers. The primary winches are hydraulic and/or manually operated. Deck fittings such as the fair lead chocks are made of 416 stainless steel which hold up to the harsh ocean conditions far better than standard commercial marine stainless steel, and retain their shine for years with little polishing required. Forward deck are fitted with handholds made of titanium to provide a secure tie p area for the dinghy on the foredeck as an alternate to the aft deck storage location.
You will be hard pressed to find a better equipped sailing vessel at this price! Lewmar hatches and handsome stainless Dorade vents seal tight and all ports are equipped with double glass for safety and security. Mechanical systems are fitted with onboard back-up systems to ensure food and critical systems are maintained underway. You will find no sailing vessel that is better equipped for going to sea!
