    • GUEST CABINS

      • The four guest cabins are accessed downstairs through the starboard aft section of the main salon. The stairs turn toward the center of the yacht into a small common area outside the cabins. There are two generous mirror image cabins aft with a pair of movable full-size beds in each, closets, built-in dressers and ensuite heads with showers. The two larger staterooms are forward and mirror imaged as well. Each has a wraparound counter with a built-in desk just inside each door, athwartship king sized beds and built-in side tables. Further forward in each cabin are three closets and an entrance to the large ensuite head and showers. The port stateroom is varnished mahogany, while the starboard stateroom is painted light blue.
    • CREW CABINS

      • The "bridge deck" Captain's Cabin and the generous crew accommodations for up to 8 crew in 5 staterooms are remarkable for a vessel of her size.
      • Aft and starboard of the Crew Lounge are thick teak stairs leading down to the crew area. There is a large, double wide freezer at the bottom of the stairs, and this area opens into a full beam utility room with an ice machine, washer/dryer, utility sink and a counter with cabinets. A large floor hatch in the middle of the crew hallway gives access to dry storage, multiple tank tops, and other yacht related systems. There are five crew cabins on board, four in the crew area and a large captain's cabin on the bridge deck. The lower crew area has a centerline hallway to access the cabins. To starboard is a twin cabin with built-in dressers, closet, desk area, and private ensuite head. The portside cabin has twin bunks, built-in dressers, closet, nice desk, and private ensuite head. Forward is a small set of stairs up to two additional cabins, which are mirror images of each other. Both have twin bunks, built in dressers, closet, and head. These cabins share a centerline shower, which join the spaces in a reverse “U” shape. There is a ladder and escape hatch just outside of these cabins at the top of the access stairs. Below these stairs is another large dry storage area and access to the bow thruster.
    • ENCLOSED AFT DECK SALOON

      • Upon boarding Buckpasser you immediately enter the enclosed aft deck salon which has been completely renewed with full bar, new cocktail table, tongue & groove overheads and more. The aft deck salon has new teak decks with built-in L-shaped settee on the port side with matching chair and table settings. The full-service bar is situated to starboard with gloss varnished teak and Corian bar top with matching teak and stainless swivel bar stools. Small varnished teak consoles are built-in on both sides of the vessel and house the A/C system for this area. Doors to the walk around decks are just forward of the varnished consoles, and large sliding glass windows give the space an open feeling.
    • COCKPIT

      • Buckpasser's transom is wide and has a large swim platform with a stout rub rail. There's a large, centerline towing buckle below the swim platform for towing. The transom door is on the port side, which gives access to the cockpit featuring massive teak covering boards, rod holders and a space for a fighting chair on the starboard side. There are multiple deck hatches to access the live baitwells and lazarette.
    • EXTERIOR MAIN DECK & BOW AREA

      • Buckpasser has walkaround covered teak decks. Her cap rails are solid teak. There are two massive Steen windlass drums to manage the ground tackle with ample shots of chain and an emergency retrieval arm for both sides of the deck. Her bow is high and powerful, accented with a large burgee pole. A generous seating area exists on the forward part of the deckhouse, with spacious bosun lockers on either side.
    • MAIN SALOON AND CARD ROOM

      • From the aft deck, thick glass and stainless doors slide open to the large Main Salon, which has expansive windows on both sides, highlighted by varnished teak trim and crown mouldings above. On the starboard portion of the vessel, a large buffet and dual bookcases split another window. A wall extends ¾ of the way out from the port side, which forms one side of the card room just forward of the Main Salon. There is a walkway down the starboard side that allows you to turn into this area or proceed to the Main Dining Room. The Card Room has a forward facing teak buffet with bookcase, while on the opposite wall facing aft is a bar with cabinets above. The bar has a sink, fridge, and icemaker that disappear when closed up. There is another set of big opening windows in this room, as well as a day head.
    • FORMAL DINING ROOM

      • Further along the starboard walkway, there the formal Dining Room for 8 with identical built-in hutch/buffets on both sides. The buffets are full length, and the glass china cabinets split the large windows on both sides.
    • CREW AREA

      • Buckpasser was designed with excellent crew living and work areas. The on deck forward crew salon is well positioned and provides valuable functionality and separation of crew and owners. Everything forward of the dining area door is crew. A solid teak door on the starboard side brings you forward to the service end of the yacht. A narrow hallway extends a thwartship to doors that open onto the walkaround decks. Immediately to starboard is the bridge deck stairway, to port is the galley, and further forward is the full beam crew lounge.
    • GALLEY

      • The Galley is commercial grade which was completely rebuilt new in 2017. There are stainless steel counters throughout, commercial grade refrigerators, freezers and a large arrangement of Garland cooking equipment would please any chef.
    • CREW LOUNGE

      • The Crew Lounge is full beam, forward of the Galley, and accessed down the hallway on the starboard side. There is a wraparound bench seat and tables with all the necessary equipment, including refrigerator, coffee machine, TV, water fountain, sink, etc. There is a pair of large windows on both sides of the lounge with hand cranks to open. This area could serve as a library, classroom, office or possibly even another guest stateroom.
    • CAPTAIN CABIN

      • On the starboard side of the bridge, you can walk aft into the navigation and captain's area. There is a large chart table and additional electronics to starboard, storage area with a gun locker aft, and the captain's cabin to port. The entire area is full beam and has opening windows on both sides. The captain has a generous cabin with built-in dressers, closets, big desk with bookcases above and a walk-in head and shower aft.
    • BRIDGE

      • The Bridge is located up the starboard stairway at the intersection of the galley, service hallway and just inside the dining room door. The stairs are made from thick teak boards and open up to a full beam bridge with access doors to starboard and port. There is a large built-in red leather bench and a doorway to the chart room, gun closet, and captain's cabin.
    • BRIDGE & AFT WORKING DECK

      • The bridge deck has a wraparound "Portuguese Bridge" with dual wing stations and white non-skid decks. A thickly varnished cap rail surrounds the entire deck. Walking aft on either side brings you to the tender deck. There are two deployment cranes for the tenders.
    • THE STACK

      • Outside and directly behind the bridge is a huge stack, which is one of Buckpasser's most notable features. The Stack exchanges air for the engine room and also has a large storage area accessed from the starboard side. The storage area is walk-in and houses additional equipment, dryer, and other machinery. Immediately aft of the stack is an al fresco bar with bar stool seating affording 270° views and massive deck space when the tenders are launched.
    • BRIDGE TOP

      • A ladder on the port side of the tender deck gives you access to the roof of the bridge. The area has non-skid paint, a huge storage box for fishing rods and tackle, as well as an ingenious helm station module, which provides a 360 degree view of the yacht for docking or tight quarter manoeuvring.

  11. COMMENTS

    Buckpasser is a rare find by today's standards. She is beautiful, functional, economical, has more tender and crew capacity than many 150' motoryachts. Buckpasser was custom designed by Jack Hargrave for an experienced yachtsman as a mothership to support expedition style fishing excursions. As such she is the ideal floating hideaway capable of providing luxurious comfort for up to 8 guests for extended periods underway or at anchor. She is well equipped to operate without shore support for months. Massive food storage, 13,500 gals of fuel, 5,000 gallons of water, capacity to carry multiple large tenders and toys on a huge 50’ boat deck, and oversized ground tackle means that her guests will be comfortable and safe in any secluded tropical hideaway in which her shallow 7.5’ draft allows her to anchor. Her boat deck was designed to support touch and go helicopter operations as well. Her detuned 565 hp Caterpillar 3508 engines are considered some of the most robust marine diesel engines ever built providing an effortless 4000+ miles of range. An extensive list of improvements and upgrades is available upon request. It is safe to say that every aspect of Buckpasser from a mechanical, structural and cosmetic standpoint has been attended to in keeping with the highest standards of seaworthiness, safety and owner comfort. A list of exclusions is available upon Request
