Accommodations and Layout

Two Stateroom, Two Bath with convertible salon sofa bed

 What makes the 58 SS different from other express models this size? The fact that it has a highly desirable full beam aft master stateroom (queen), plus another full beam VIP stateroom forward (queen) – both with their own baths which include stall showers (not ‘wet heads’). This layout makes an ideal boat to live-aboard for extended stays without being forced to sleep forward and listen to wave slap, anchor chains and awkward crawling in and out of bed.

From the helm/cockpit door and down a few steps, the salon opens up with a voluminous galley to port and a convertible (electric) sofa for 8 to starboard. The master stateroom is aft with its own bath. The VIP stateroom is forward, also with a private bath (doubles as the day head).

 The interior cabinetry and paneling is elegant bird’s eye maple with solid surface countertops (easy and not expensive to change if you prefer a different color). The flooring below has been changed to a nice laminate ‘teak/holly’ look. The master stateroom is carpeted.  


A long counter with overhead cabinets means plenty of area for meal preparation and storage. The salon and galley benefits from overhead windows for extra daylight.
