'Versailles' is a name that perfectly describes this stunning and very well built long-range cruising yacht. Just as the Palace of Versailles (aka, King's House) and King Louie XIV, the current skipper has spent a immense amount of expense to pride his yacht as one of the cleanest and most updated Caliber 47 LRC on the water today.
What makes the Caliber 47LRC such a great long range cruiser and ocean explorer is the combination of storage capacity for long ocean passages combined with the practical realities of costal cruising and live-aboard.The Caliber Yachts company implemented several cutting edge designs and though-out build methods that answered the concerns of current ocean going cruisers on the water. There are water-tight collision bulkheads, for the utmost safety. A triple support full skeg rudder system for added dependability and strength. An integrated strength grid system where the tanks are not just sat into the ship, but glasses in for added strength and creating a double bottom barrier. And a propriety hull to deck joint sealing system with four layers of protection.
Above all, 'Versailles' has been over-the-top well kept, turn-key ready, and includes countless updates/upgrades for the new skipper:

On deck, the long oval cockpit provides an unobstructed view of the surroundings. Aft is a large deck space with a custom transom tower for equipment and dingy davits. A sugar scoop transom has steps to the water, a stainless steel swim ladder and spray down shower. Forward of the cockpit are an array of S/S grab rails and lazy bars to brace and fasthold. At the bow are two large gear lockers, and a anchor locker behind the electric windlass. The entire deck is wrapped with an aluminum toe-rail with deck mounted stations and double lifelines.
Below deck, the Caliber 47 LRC interior is finished in beautiful golden teak jointer work and soft interior cushions and abundant lighting. A teak and holly sole spans the interior floor and is paired well with the teak hull liners and teak bulkheads. The cabinetry corners are rounded and lipped for safety and fasthold. Even the cabin door thresholds and mirrors are wrapped with teak frames, the doors and drawers and are also solid teak.
The saloon amidship draws the largest section of the ship and there are an abundant amount of port light and hatches spanning the entire space. To port an L-shaped settee with a large fold-down table that may convert to a double berth. Seating to starboard on a long settee follows aft to the forward facing teak navigation station.
Port, aft of the saloon, is the long L-shaped galley with a deep basin sink closer to midship for draining on either tack. The top loading fridge has been replaced with a large side loading marine grade fridge and freezer at counter height and the space that was perviously occupied has been updated with custom drawers for even more storage. Engine access is opposite of the counter behind two insulated doors.
Passing through the galley aft is another teak door leading to the master stateroom with a centerline queen-sized berth, hanging lockers, a sitting area, and a desk. Attached is a walkthrough master head with a separate shower stall.
Forward ship, a large cabin with an offset double berth to starboard and a sitting area with hanging lockers and a small vanity/desk to port. Forward more is a private ensuite head with a separate shower.
