Crews Quarters

BANYAN'S crews' quarters are spacious and very comfortable, especially for a yacht of this size. At the bottom of the stairway, immediately to the left on the starboard side is a head and shower for the criss-cross berth crew cabin opposite. To the right of the stairway - starboard side - is a laundry/utility area with a Bosch washer and dryer, storage cupboards and a microwave. Immediately forward of this is the captain's cabin with double berth and an ensuite head. Opposite the laundry area is a crew dinette with seating for four. Dinette settees were reupholstered in the summer of 2015. At the same time, all of the wallcoverings in the crew's quarters were renewed, all of the joinery was refinished, the carpeting was replaced with the same quality carpeting as was installed throughout the yacht (cut and bound for easy removal and access to hatches), all of the crew berth mattresses were renewed and a new Vissani refrigerator was installed.
