ATON is the typical Raised Pilothouse design of the early to mid 90's. She has a few different features of the era like a forward and private dining salon and a larger main salon with separated seating areas.
Two stairwells in the salon, one aft and one midship serve the stateroom areas. There are four staterooms sleeping nine people and a nanny/child's stateroom accommodating two more. The crew has separate quarters forward and there is a crew access door in the galley to starboard.
ATON has a very large aft deck with a ladder access to the flybridge. Access to the new 2010 cockpit extension is through a center ladder stairwell.
Entering the large sliding door from the aft deck is the U-shaped wet bar to port. Travertine marble countertops and under counter icemaker and sink. To starboard aft is the semi-circular stairwell to the aft guest accommodations.
Hidden in the Travertine marble cabinet is a pop-up TV for the aft salon seating. Opposite facing sofas on port and starboard are separated by a large coffee table. Occasional chairs flank the table, dual faux columns provide a buffer to the forward seating. Cabinets house the audio equipment and miscellaneous serving ware. The forward bulkhead has a 46’ flat screen TV and cabinet storage under. Faux columns accent this area. A privacy door to port provides access to this port forward side deck doorway and umbrella closet.
The privacy door to starboard leads to the on-deckhead, foredeck entry door starboard, pilothouse, dining salon, galley, and crew accommodations forward. The stairwell to starboard leads to the forward guest accommodations.

ATON is the second Broward in this owners fleet. She has undergone a refit that includes a cockpit-style extension without modifying the hull (that would affect her handling). She has dramatic styling with her painted salon windows and hull strips. She has lots of new equipment and most of her systems have been serviced or renewed. ATON has a wonderful charter layout that allows sleeping for nine guests and a nanny or young children in a fifth room. She has plenty of other spaces for casual relaxation.
