Take a close look at the wenge table, which unfolds like an origami sculpture to morph from low cocktail table to full dining table- very slick. This interior made the most of the pale whitewashed oak joinery, which contrasts with a wenge-planked sole to give this 65 a beachy and casual interior.
Forward, the skipper is cosseted in one of a pair of comfortable leather seats that wouldn't look out of place in a Ferrari. The Italians do great leather: The helm console is a beautifully stitched piece of art. The helm is layered, putting switches close to the skipper, engine panels in a second tier, and Raymarine displays just below the windshield, and lines of sight are spectacular. An immense, and I mean immense, sunroof opens the saloon and helm area to the fresh air.
The galley is down, and benefits from the expansive windshield that acts like a skylight overhead, although the brightly finished cabinetry make it cheerful even at night. Upscale appliances include a four-burner Miele cooktop, under-counter dishwasher, and doubledoor Isotherm eye-level fridge. And check out the under-sole pantry: Open a floor hatch, push a button, and a cavernous locker rises for access without getting on your knees. It's big enough for food for weeks...or a few cases of Cristal. Tough choice.
