Layout and Accommodation
Gloria has luxurious accommodations for eight owners and guests in four ensuite staterooms, and for up to five crew in three cabins.
A few steps down from the cockpit, the comfortable deckhouse is the crossroads of the yacht. A staircase in the aft port corner leads to a small lobby outside the master stateroom, off which is a convenient day head with shower, which also serves as a second bathroom for the master stateroom. Centrally, forward, a staircase leads down to the main saloon and guest accommodations. In the deckhouse a settee to port faces a breakfast table; the captain’s navigation center is forward to starboard, aft of which is the main electrical distribution panel. Large windows surround this deckhouse providing panoramic views.
The main saloon comprises three main parts, making an inverted T. Forming the cross beam of the T are sitting conversational areas to port and starboard, while the “leg” is the dining saloon forward. The area to starboard has a large and comfortable L-shaped settee facing aft to a built in flat panel television below a leaded glass crystal display cabinet. A charming working fireplace is outboard with a white marble hearth. Also a Raritan icemaker is situated within one cupboard.
Opposite to port is a very convivial conversational area with a C-shaped settee facing a writing / music desk. There is exceptional headroom, with two vaulted skylights, several portholes, and the clever use of mirrors to enhance the feeling of space. The oval dining table, with inlaid marquetry compass rose and eight dining chairs, is beneath the forward skylight. The galley is outboard through a sliding door to port, and is described in greater detail below.
The Pullman style galley is to port of the dining saloon, and has a crew mess at the forward end.
Galley equipment includes:
600 liter refrigerator
450 liter deep freezer
180 liter Liebherr wine refrigerator
Gaggenau stove w/oven, grill, 4 ceramic & 2 electric burners
Miele clothes washing machine
Miele clothes dryer
The master stateroom is aft of the deckhouse down a short curving staircase. This impressive room occupies the full beam of the yacht. A king sized double berth is against the aft bulkhead, flanked by symmetrical L-shaped settees. Four portholes are in the hull sides, and there are two overhead hatches (one being an escape hatch). The very generous bathroom is forward to port with whirlpool tub, marble, mahogany and gold accents.
Guest Staterooms 2 and 3
Forward and down from the deckhouse, a generous lobby surrounds the base of the main mast. Either side of this are two almost mirror image guest staterooms one with a queen sized berth the other features twin single berths that can push together to make a king size double berth. These charming rooms are finished in mahogany with off white panels. There are two portholes and a deck hatch in each stateroom. Both cabins have marble and mahogany ensuite bathrooms.
Guest Stateroom 4
This twin berth stateroom is to starboard of the dining saloon, and has an ensuite head and shower forward in marble and mahogany.
This double berth cabin is forward of the dining saloon, and has an ensuite head and shower.
Forward of the crew mess in the galley is a twin bunk cabin with a connecting door to the crew lobby at the base of the forward companionway from the foredeck. To starboard of this lobby is the crew head and shower compartment, and forward of it is a three berth forepeak cabin.
