Eve of St Mawes - Accommodation

Eve of St Mawes is a remarkably airy and light boat below decks due to her huge skylight hatch in the centre. There are also portholes around the doghouse, in the forehatch and into the aft bunks.

Cruiser yachts of the same size have much higher topsides to create headroom and living space but Eve is a deep, long keeled classic so she has sleek low lines to look at from the outside but her cabin is deep and wide.  Please remember she is only a 38ft boat, but as a traditional working boat she is a lot wider than most yachts of a similar size.The solid Douglas Fir mast means that you don't get that horrible banging of halliards that you hear in marinas.

Eve of St MawesSaloon

There are two very wide single berths in the saloon. One has a high oak leeboard to stop you falling out on passage. The starboard bunk has a removable lee cloth.

There is a big oak table under the main skylights that can seat 8 at a squeeze.

The Chart table and Galley are at the aft end of this space


Into the Forecabin

There is a door seperating the saloon and forecabin area. Behind this is the wc, basin and shower space, oilskin locker and then the foreward cabin with two single bunks. Theses are about 6ft 6" long with a small stotage shelf. You can see the wooden hull construction beside you with its grown and steamed oak frames. Each bunk has a reading light and there is ehough head room to sit up and read in bunk. There is a storage cupboard for bags below and another bag space in the bow of the boat.

The pipe you can see is the anchor chain route into the chain locker.

It is possible to climb out of the fore hatch in port via a small step and bunk edges.

The toilet area has a very small sink and its own door. The shower area extends right accross the boat with a stainless steel tray and wooden grating.You can create your private 'wet room' for a shower by using the wc door opened accross the boat and a shower curtain on the other side. The shower head is powered by a powerful pump and if the engine has been on there is good hot water. We can take you to showers ashore in various venues if you prefer....


The stove is gimballed and our skippers all enjoying cooking. There is a double sink with hot water and power pressurised fresh water.

Chart Table

Eve has a large chart table made of oak which can take full sized Admiralty Charts - which we prefer to use and teach on. She has wind speed instruments, depth sounder, radar, GPs, AIS, DSC/VHF radio and a mobile radio.  If this is gobbledegook we can explain what each does much easier on board.


aft bunkAft Bunks

The lovely raked stern that makes Eve so distincytive means that the aft bunks have low headroom. They were originally designed as two doubles but we only used them as skippers bunk and on the other side of a partion is the other double but used a single bunk. Consequently if you volunteer for these bunks you get a wide bunk a bit like a cave ! Only for the bendy of us.
