The DETTLING 71 is an extraordinary well-built custom Hunt inspired 71’ by Dettling Yachts, creator of the highly regarded Dettling 51. Unlike so many boats of her size and capability, she can be managed by an experienced couple or can support fully crewed operation by two crew with private crew access plus three comfortable guest staterooms for six guests. In addition, the crew stateroom can easy convert to a forth guest stateroom. Her exterior has been thoughtfully conceived without bright work to ease the maintenance factor without diminishing her classic lines and visual appeal. A walk-in rear engine room away from guest spaces and separate mid-ship pump room allow for quiet operation and convenient access to service and maintain the onboard systems.

This stunning, well pedigreed yacht is fresh out of a major refit which included the installation of a SeaKeeper system, hydraulic lifting swim platform, hardtop extension, faux teak transom & caprails, and additional aft deck seating. At the same time all of her navigational and entertainment electronics were replaced, all engine services brought up to date, all interior soft goods & carpeting were replaced, and her hull was newly awlgripped. In addition, fresh Bottom paint/prop speed/New zincs October 2020 She is priced well below market value and has been maintained and updated to perfection under the watchful eyes of both her full-time Captain and knowledgeable owner. A (like-new) tender is included in the sale.

GALLEY, four steps down from the saloon, is separated by a pass-over bar, so that the cook can be part of the party while her galley secrets remain hidden. The galley itself includes double sinks, garbage disposer,refrigerator and separate freezer, icemaker, cooktop, oven, microwave and a large variety of storage space. There isample room for a dishwasher and trash compactor, if desired.

In the SALON, just forward of the galley, a bright, spacious feeling is enhanced by the view through huge fixed windows. A settee to starboard provides seating for dining when the hi-lo cocktail table is raised and its leaves opened. Chairs from the port side of the saloon can be used for additional seating. Aft to port is a large desk. Stools at the counter which delineates the galley add to the seating in the saloon.

Up a few steps from the saloon, the BRIDGE is an entertainment area in itself, offering 360 degree visibility on forward-facing seating for four at the helm on the starboard side, and another two across the aisle on the port side. Additionally, aft of these there are settees port and starboard with tables for drinks or meals in glass enclosed, heated or air-conditioned

Windows in this entire area can be opened to the fresh air. Sliding doors at the after end join the bridge to the covered aft deck to make one glorious entertainment area. This bridge deck, with wet bar, can accommodate seven diners at the drop-leaf table, and an assortment of chairs and tables welcomes guests. The aft deck can be opened or closed with side curtains depending on the weather, but either way remains covered. The extended canopy which covers the bridge provides storage for a large tender. If sunning is the order of the day, there is a huge open aft cockpit just a few steps down from the bridge deck. Line handling is simplified by wide walkaround side decks where owners or crew can work out of the way of guests.
