Alden Yacht Design.

A large deck hatch, four opening portholes and two dorade vents provide great light and ventilation.
Forward of the master stateroom is a private head and separate shower stall featuring Corian sink and counters, Grohe faucet, toilet and numerous lockers. The area is finished in a Herreshoff style, with white bulkheads and high-gloss cherry trim and cabin soles/shower grates.
The stunning main salon features a U-shaped settee to starboard with customized solid cherry dining table with inlays and storage under and outboard, including a book shelf. To port is a full-length expandable settee with additional storage outboard and two bureau cabinets for wine bottle, stemware and glass storage, and the entertainment center. The inviting area is accentuated by a custom teak butterfly hatch above with stainless hardware, and a custom Dutch-built stainless/glass fireplace with granite hearth.

A U-shaped galley is to starboard and aft of the salon with a layout that is both functional and attractive. The galley is large by any standard with generous countertop area, extensive storage space and vertical refrigerator door for easy access. Other features include:
The forward-facing nav station is aft of the galley, with comfortable built-in seat and easy access to instrumentation and breaker panels, and is also conveniently located close to the companionway.

At Nav Station:
The hull and deck were laminated using the SCRIMP resin infusion process, creating a hull lamination that is completely uniform in the resin-to-fiber ratio, as well as complete adhesion of the balsa core material to the inner and outer skins. The SCRIMP process results in an extremely strong hull and deck structure. There are two watertight bulkheads – one forward of master head, and one at the aft end of master stateroom. The rudder and stock are carbon fiber, while centerboard is fiberglass with hydraulic lift arm. CHIMERA has a minimum draft of 6’6” with centerboard up and a maximum draft of 11’8” with board down.
Topsides are Flag Blue Awlgrip with gold leaf cove stripe, double white boot stripe and red bottom (all new 2015). Bottom and topsides were also re-faired in 2015. Cabin house is white Awlgrip with painted non-skid (all new 2015). Teak decks and cabin top, all new 2015. Painted rubrail with stainless striker.
