The aft large king master en suite stateroom accessed is from the salon area, down the stair companionway. The master stateroom is isolated astern from the rest of the staterooms. Also located at the base of the stairs is the entrance to a well laid out spacious engine room.

Sellers Statement

"Sleeping on the Black Horse while anchored out on the water is a joyful experience of quiet, comfort and peace. The night sky from the ocean’s view is a lifetime memory to enjoy."

There is so much room and extra space on board for two or 10 people at one time to enjoy long haul cruising on board in comfort. So many different places on board to be alone or enjoying 25 cruising guests at once. The Black Horse, is very comfortable to be on board whether cruising, at the dock or on the hook. 

The bridge deck is so wide open and spacious as well as the beautiful salon, inside or outside, Back Horse delivers.

"The nice thing is, Black Horse takes just two people to run her  for short or long trips. Easy to cruise on or live aboard, economically."
