MACGREGOR 70 "ANTHEM"
MACGREGOR 70 SITE MAP
The interior decor of the yacht is striking. We have chosen to reflect the modern interiors of the best custom jetliners and exotic European power boats, rather than the traditional, heavily wooded or rough fiberglass interiors of conventional sailboats. Luxurious carpeting is used throughout the boat, and high quality fabrics are used on walls, bulkheads and ceilings to quiet the boat and soften the decor.
MAIN SALON: This is a large, comfortable area for dining and entertaining. It also serves as a sleeping compartment for 2. There are a pair of hanging lockers and flat screen TV and VCR. Opening side windows and a deck hatch provide this area with a lot of light and ventilation.
This is the main salon, viewed from the forward end.
INSIDE STEERING STATION: An unusual feature of the interior is an inside navigation and steering station. It has excellent visibility, a chart table with storage, and a comfortable, forward facing sofa type helmsman's seat for three. All electronics, including a full Brookes and Gatehouse navigation and autopilot system, Furuno radar and chart plotter, and a second set of autopilot helm controls are be mounted within easy reach. The autopilot then serves as a backup steering system. We see no need for the helmsman and friends to have to be exposed to cold or rainy weather conditions. With the quiet engine or under sail, it is really nice to sit inside in complete comfort. Another major advantage of this navigation-steering station is that the navigator or skipper can see what is going on outside the yacht. This is much better than navigating blind from the depths of the boat. This area can also serve as an informal dinette with a great view.
Here is another view of the navigation station from the main salon.
GALLEY: The galley countertop is a full 8' long, with a deep double sink. There is a 4 burner CNG stove and oven, and a huge amount of locker and drawer space. It is located in the raised area of the cabin, near the inside navigation station. Most large yachts have the galley tucked away deep in the interior, where ventilation and visibility is poor, and where the cook is totally isolated. A great deal of time is spent in and around the galley, cooking, making coffee and looking for cookies. When the skipper ducks below for making coffee, he can still see out to watch were the boat is going.
We have placed the galley where it has a great view in all directions and lots of fresh air. Its location also gives easy access to the dinette, cockpit and navigation station. The icebox, located under the navigation station, has 9.3 cubic feet capacity, one of the largest that you will find in any comparable boat. It is extremely easy to reach from the galley. A combination alternating current or engine driven refrigeration/freezer system can be added.
Visible at the far end are the entry steps, which are really steps and not the usual near-vertical ladder. The step cabinet houses a convenient trash container or storage area. There is a storage locker under every seat and berth throughout the boat.
MASTER STATEROOM: This area offers a queen-sized bed, sofa, a large double hanging locker, under berth storage, drawers, vanity and a place for a TV set. The master and forward staterooms, both equally large and comfortable, have their own private bathrooms with showers.
There is a watertight bulkhead directly behind this stateroom. (there is another watertight bulkhead forward of the stern)
FORWARD STATEROOM: This
area has a very large V berth, 2 seats, a sofa, a double hanging locker and
private head. A large opening hatch
is located directly over the V berth. There
is room for a washer-dryer.
The watertight bulkhead can be seen at the forward end of the V berth. Ahead of this bulkhead is a large anchor locker that will hold an amazing amount of equipment.
This is the sleeping compartment directly behind the forward V berth.
This is the large hanging locker across from the berth shown in the above picture.
Here are 2 views of the head off of the master stateroom. It can be accessed directly from the navigation station area or from the master stateroom.
This is the head for the forward stateroom.
Behind the cockpit and the aft watertight bulkhead, there is a third, completely private sleeping area. This is a perfect area for a charter crew, or for the kids. This area also makes a great workroom or garage for storing all of the stuff that you may not want in the main cabin (rafts, oars, fenders, sail covers, etc.) There is also room for a diesel AC 50 or 60 hertz generator to power appliances and air conditioning.
There is another very large area near the transom, with a large hatch, for storage.
