General Description

The Rebel Yell is an exceptional Motor Yacht that is easily handled by a couple that wishes to live aboard and  cruise the ICW, the Bahamas and beyond.

From the fly bridge to the main salon down to the galley and staterooms below this yacht offers  a elegant, roomy and comfortable lifestyle.

The fly bridge canvas - Weblon  vanguard material  with tri-stitching and 1 1/4" framing,  and screening were just updated in 2012 and looks brand new. From this helm there is  a panorama view. This space offers a great place for entertaining with a wet bar, settee and corner seating under the hardtop. The fly bridge cushions were all upgraded in 2014.

Behind the fly bridge enclosure is an open deck area that provides a private sunbathing deck and/or  a great place to view the sunsets. Aft of this is a place for a tender with a tender lift. The wind generator is located in this area and the hardtop has the solar panels and radar unit attached.

Descending from the fly bridge, via a spiral staircase, delivers one to the main deck and directly to the pilot helm. The five panel windows, that has  been recently replaced and sealed offer a clear unobstructed view.  The main entry to the deck are located port and starboard of the helm.

The beautiful teak helm sports a Robinson Simrad 8p22 - new in 2005, a VHS M59, Cybertec CTX 20670, 2 -GPS Chartpotter: Garmin GPS map 225, Cybrtec CTX 1000, Depth Data marina CB 400 and a Furuno 48 radar system. The DC Power panel is also located at this station. A movable captain chair is included.

In the Pilot helm area there is a teak cushion bench/lounge with ample storage in its pedestal.

The main salon is behind the pilot helm. Entering the salon, heading aft, there is a day head to the right and to the left is a sideboard and teak dining table with chairs. Beyond the day head is an entertainment center that includes a 42" flat screen TV and a DVD player. next to it is a 7' corner sectional lounge with a coffee table. Across from the lounge are two leather chairs separated by a table and lamp. A massage lounger is angled from the chairs.

Passing by the lounger is the aft salon entry. This canvas enclosed area and has a hidden  wet bar sink combo with a small refrigerator and a teak and holly sole making it terrific for entertaining.

To head down below to the galley, state and engine rooms one has to return to the pilot helm and take a winding staircase to the lower deck. Heading forward will bring you to the galley with a table and bench seating to your right and a full galley with oven and stove combination, counter to the double sink with a lazy Susan below and a full freezer and refrigerator to the your left.

  Between the table and the galley is a floor hidden floor entrance to the generator, batteries and inverter  storage area. The generator is a Westerbeck 21Kw with 1506 hours on it. The starting 4 starting batteries where installed in 2014 and the generator battery was in 2015.
