METOLIUS is a true offshore voyager, with an easily driven hull form and a powerful sail plan engineered to be easily managed by minimal crew.  She has a Rondal rig with hydraulic furling mainsail, headstay and staysail; hydraulic winches, a functional, simple deck layout, and a comfortable, well protected cockpit.

Her interior designed by Peter Beeldsnijder, is detailed in varnished teak with an ambiance that exudes elegant warmth with an uncanny functionality.  The interior layout includes three staterooms, two heads with stall showers, separate crew quarters and head, and a superb work-shop stowage area forward - all crafted to the highest Huisman standards.  The overall arrangement is ideal for family living, offering absolute comfort and privacy in her functional cabins. With over 150,000 miles under her keel, she has always had benefit of exceptional preventative maintenance, and major refits in 2001, 2005, 2008, 2011 and 2012 with a comprehensive engine rebuild in 2013 and new hull paint in 2014!  Simply stated, she’s ready to go and quite stunning!

GENERAL

Interior and Accommodations

The MAIN SALON aboard METOLIUS is very large with an open plan that enhances the sense of spaciousness. The teak inlaid dining table and “L” shaped settee area are to starboard, with two custom dining seats inboard. Outboard to port is a large and comfortable leather upholstered sofa, facing a hi/low cocktail/game table which, in the lower position, secures two custom leather upholstered teak stools. Aft in this area is another custom swivel seat. The main salon is truly a comfortable family living room.

The NAVIGATION STATION adjoins the salon aft to port, with a bench seat that allows the navigator to face forward or aft. The aft area houses the electronics and communications equipment, with a work space below. The radar and computer are outboard, adjacent to a two-tier bookshelf, plus valence bookshelf above. When facing forward, the navigator sits at a large chart table/office desk, which offers chart storage, filing cabinets and additional storage drawers inboard.

Immediately to starboard of the companionway is a GUEST STATEROOM, with over and under single berths and ample storage in drawers, cabinets and a large hanging locker.

Adjoining the main salon, forward to starboard is the well-appointed GALLEY, which has an abundance of cabinet and counter space, beautifully detailed. Refrigeration is a custom fabricated RHS cold bank refrigerator and freezer system, with refrigerator in the galley, drinks refrigeration in the adjoining area of the salon and a separate deep freeze forward.   The propane stove is a Huisman modified Alpes Mariner, with solenoid shut off and gas alarm. In addition, there are deep ss sinks, custom fixtures, a Miele microwave oven and abundant storage space.

The OWNER’s STATEROOM is across to starboard, with a double berth, ample stowage in drawers and lockers, writing desk and foldaway seat, and an ensuite head with stall shower.

The SECOND GUEST STATEROOM is forward of the salon to port, also with two good size single berths, plenty of stowage and an opening hatch to the mid deck. The GUEST HEAD/day head, is aft of the stateroom and complete with a full stall shower.

CREW QUARTERS for two, are forward of the mast, with over and under single berths and ample stowage in lockers and drawers to port, and an ensuite head and shower compartment to starboard. Crew have their own access to deck through the fore hatch in the foc’sle workshop.

Immediately forward of the crew quarters is a large WORKSHOP/STORAGE AREA, with separate Miele washer and drier, custom fabricated SS freezer, workbench with detachable vice and ample custom storage for hand and power tools. Also in this area, just below the large foredeck hatch, is a custom sail stowage cabinet for the asymmetrical spinnaker.

Forward on starboard side in the crew area, built in to the teak unit is a Miele washer and a dryer (2001).

The engine is on centerline, cleverly installed below a lead sound-shielded teak engine cover that retracts electrically. Outboard to port, forward of the salon is a full pump room, where much of the engineering and mechanical equipment aboard is installed, along with the 100 lt diesel day tank. Behind a hatch, aft at the companionway, is a full wet locker, with access to additional machinery farther aft.

 

Deck

The deck layout aboard METOLIUS was engineered with safety, seamanship and ease of sail handling as primary requirements.

The aft cockpit is deep and well protected by the sprayhood / dodger, with seating port and starboard, as well as aft of the 70” SS destroyer wheel. The binnacle houses both the steering compass and waterproof touch screen for the navigation software as well as the external VHF handset.

Lifting the cockpit seats provides access to general storage areas, two liferafts and an EPIRB.
There is a custom teak dining table that fits in the cockpit sole, which can be in place while sailing. Removable foot braces fit in both cockpits.
Running backstay winches are fitted on the cockpit coaming, within easy reach of the helmsman.
The engine control panel is to starboard with two deck mounted foot switches for the bowthruster.
To port of the helm is a panel for the deck lights and a Simrad autopilot control unit.
The control panel for the Rondal rig hydraulics (backstay and vang) is also to port, just forward of the helm.
A well-protected working cockpit aft of the mast has Lewmar 1100 SST/hydraulic primary winches and Lewmar 900 SST/hydraulic secondary winches.
Immediately aft of this cockpit are four flush mounted hatches with four sensibly sized Dorade vents, protected by stainless steel grab rails. The stainless steel traveler is located just forward of the dodger, well positioned for proper leverage for the main sheet, while keeping the sheet clear of both cockpits.
Stainless genoa and staysail tracks are mounted on the deck.
This working / crew cockpit also has a teak table and cushions for dining / relaxing when at rest.
Just aft of the mast, there is a grouping of 3 Rondal stainless steel SW 2000 and 2 Lewmar 650 SST/hydraulic winches that operate all halyards. Also in this area are two Lewmar 460 AST, mast mounted pole lift winches for the aluminum spinnaker pole that is housed on the forward side of the mast.
The clean foredeck has a low bulwark that affords protection with the only protrusions being the Steen windlass and a Dorade vent immediately forward of the inner forestay.
To starboard of the foredeck hatch are two, in deck storage lockers with flush, teak laid hatches, one for the outboard engines and fuel tanks, the other for two aluminum propane tanks. The outboard locker has a bilge pump and extractor fan; the gas locker drains directly overboard.
The recessed foredeck hatch is sealed by a compressed air activated gasket and immediately aft of this are two recessed hatches.
