Deck & Hull
Stamatia has oversized deck hardware and tackle, much of which is bronze. Her deck cleats for mooring lines are heavy-duty and mounted on high bulwarks and inboard of hawse holes or fairleads. She also has a large and robust samson post with mooring bits at the aft end of her teak bowsprit. She has multiple opening bronze hatches and portholes, as well as dorade boxes with moveable cowl vents for extra ventilation down below. Instead of lifelines, this vessel has a heavy stainless steel bow pulpit that integrates into a high teak handrail with stainless steel stanchions that encircles the rest of the boat. There is a teak swim platform mounted to the vessel's canoe stern, as well as heavy teak dinghy davits.
There is a teak box or chest on the foredeck that holds two aluminum propane bottles.
At the mainmast there are two sturdy stainless steel mast pulpits. Below each mast pulpit is a teak box for storing lines or winch handles. On the sides of the mainmast are three Barient series 21 winches to aid in sail handling, as well as multiple aluminum cleats for tying off lines and halyards.
The mizzenmast in the cockpit has 2 Barient series 10 winches.
Sails and Rigging
Stamatia is a cutter-rigged ketch. Her genoa is mounted on a Schaefer 3100 roller furling unit, and her staysail is of the hank-on variety and mounted on a self-tending aluminum staysail boom. Her mainsail is of the in-mast furling variety and is stored inside of her extruded aluminum mainmast. Bridge clearance for this vessel is just under 62". Her mizzen sail is of the traditional flaking style and is mounted aft on an extruded aluminum mizzen mast and boom. All masts and booms are painted white.
The cockpit is covered in teak decking and provides ample seating for guests and crew. Primary winches for genoa sheets are on the cockpit coamings and are large Barient self-tailing winches. Mounted in the cockpit on the port-side aft edge of the pilothouse is an exterior helm station with a wooden steering wheel and engine controls. There is a custom teak dinghy davit with hoisting tackle off of the stern, and a very nice Magma propane grill with two smaller aluminum propane bottles mounted on the starboard rail. As previously mentioned, there is a small teak swim platform mounted on the stern just above the waterline.
The inside of the pilothouse is bright and airy, thanks to multiple bronze-framed large windows. The two forward center windows can be opened and both have new electric windshield wipers. To port and starboard are very comfortable settees with recently reupholstered tufted cushions. There is a dining table at the port settee. Underneath the port settee cushions you will find a very large deep freezer with a brand-new compressor.
At the vessel's main helm station, mounted just to starboard of the centerline, there is a beautiful bronze steering wheel with a wooden hub and spokes. The boat's electric panel, navigational equipment and engine controls are all within easy reach of the helm seat.
Forward of the pilothouse and down a small set of stairs is the galley. There is a large counterspace to port with beautiful marble countertops, large, top-opening fridge/freezer (also side-opening for fridge), and a deep, double-basin sink with pressurized fresh water as well as manual hand pumps for both fresh and salt water. Forward in the galley and just to port of the centerline is a very nice Dickinson Marine four-burner propane stove and oven. To starboard is another long settee with a sturdy dining table. Throughout the galley there is copious storage in cabinets and drawers.
Going forward from the galley, you will enter the forward or guest stateroom. Here you will find a large and comfortable double berth mounted to port with a cushioned seating area to starboard. There is a large hanging locker as well as a vanity area with a countertop and mirror.
Just aft of the forward bunk is the forward head, also located to port. Outboard you will find a tiled shower area with hot and cold pressure water, a handheld or wall-mounted shower head and a manual marine head hidden under an opening teak bench. There is a nice teak grate above the sump at the floor of this shower compartment. Just inboard of the shower and head is a vanity with a sink in a marble countertop, and a mirror with hidden medicine compartment behind it. There is abundant storage in the forward head in the form two cabinets.
Coming back aft from the forward stateroom and through the galley, you will find a stateroom for crew on the starboard side of the vessel. In this stateroom is a comfortable double berth with several drawers for storage and a rugged countertop that serves as a good shelf or workspace area. In the aft wall of this cabin is the entrance to the engine room.
Passing back through the galley and pilothouse, you will enter the master stateroom aft via a staircase to port. Here you will find a spacious cabin with a large centerline berth forward, and a comfortable, curved settee aft. On the starboard side forward is the master head compartment. Here there is another beautifully-tiled shower and marine head, along with a mirrored vanity with sink and marble countertop. On the forward bulkhead of this compartment is a panel that can be opened into the crew quarters forward for added ventilation.
Down low and on the centerline of the vessel you will find the engine room. This compartment can be accessed both from the back of the crew cabin and from the forward part of the master stateroom. Inside the engine room is a masterpiece of workmanship and engineering, containing the brand-new 160hp main engine and a brand-new 6,000-watt enclosed generator. Everything here is beautifully arranged and organized and is as bright and clean as any engine room you will ever see on a vessel of this size. The seller spent a full year having the engine and generator installed, along with the fuel filtration system and other vessel electrical systems located here. This room is the beating heart of this vessel and is truly a sight to see.
Just forward of the engine room and under the floor of the crew quarters is the vessel's lithium battery bank, which contains three 300-amp hour batteries. In this cabin you will also find the new Technautics reefer compressors for the boat's deep freezer and galley fridge/freezer.
All of the original tanks have been removed from the boat and replaced with custom-built stainless steel tanks.
Fuel tanks: 140-gallon tank to port
160-gallon tank to starboard
12-gallon day tank on centerline under galley sole
All of the boat's original fuel lines and hoses have been removed and replaced with new.
Water tanks: There are three separate water tanks;
one 48-gallon tank
one 68-gallon tank
one 57-gallon tank.
These tanks are pressurized and use a Jabsco electric freshwater pump to deliver water to faucets throughout the boat. All of the boat's original waterlines and hoses have been removed and replaced with new.
At the bow roller is a large CQR or plow-style anchor. Connected to the anchor is 300' of 3/8" high-tensile anchor chain. The anchor and chain are easily and efficiently deployed and retrieved via an incredibly capable 1700-watt Lofrans anchor windlass. This windlass is mounted on a custom-built shelf just aft of the anchor roller, and feeds the anchor chain through a hawse pipe down into the anchor locker forward of the forward stateroom.
