Improvements incorporated in the 39, which rides a Lynn Senour-designed semidisplacement hull, include larger pilothouse and saloon windows, an expanded helm console to accommodate large display screens and a standard Llebroc captain's chair for comfort - critical for proper watch-keeping during lengthy passages, says Lund.
To improve ventilation, a Dutch door and two larger sliding windows - all by Diamond Sea-Glaze - are integrated into the saloon, which has a new U-shaped settee with a pull-out berth. An overhead-mounted flat-screen TV facing the settee is available as an option.
The redesigned head features a Tecma marine head and a molded shower stall with a bench seat and a sliding door on a space-saving curved track. In the galley, a Force 10 electric cooktop, Sharp convection/microwave oven and top-loading freezer are standard. Below, the guest cabin features a pull-out lower berth that also serves as a settee.
