    2850 interior re-fit with Teak Holley-gctid340802

    It's finally done! Pictures don't do it justice but thought I should post anyway. Let me know if you have questions. Took me about a year to do. What you can't see is a forced air furnace and built in propane locker vented to outside.

    Wow, that look fantastic. You did a great job. The admiral wants us to do that in the salon. I have been resisting because of the many hatches, concern for noise from the engines directly below the salon and heat insulation.

    But looking at yours, I could easily be convinced otherwise.

      wow, very impressive, job well done! I dont think I would have the patients for that kind of project on my 2858 but it definately brightens up the interior and gives it a rich looking feeling.

            Hatches were actually easy to do because you could just take them to the workshop instead of building them on the boat. Turns out engine noise is less. I think it's because the extra wood helps dampen the noise and vibration. Keep in mind, the original carpet is pretty thin.

                    Way nicer than a new boat. Looked at lots of 2000+ 2858/9 and even the newest ones weren't going to measure up (no dis-respect to owners). I actually found a 2850 in Portland OR that the owner had done something similar as far as teak and holly flooring. Woodwork did not measure up though and it wasn't very extensive either. I knew by picking a boat that maximized interior layout (the 2850s are the best in that regard IMO) I could re-build it to look better than new with the finishing materials I wanted. Not only that, all systems are brand new and upgraded to the latest and greatest. I'm waiting until I clear off Xmas credit card bills before purchasing Garmin's AIS transducer and DSC radio to add to the network.

                          looks fantastic. What did you do for counters? Couldn't tell if it was laminate or corian type material.

                              Veeeeeeeeeeery nice! I notice you removed the helm seat...assuming most of the operating is done from the flybridge? On my Victoria 2750, the helm seat folds forward to provide additional counter space when the seat isn't being used. If you're interested in having a seat there and want to know how the 2750 is configured, I'll be happy to snap some pics. Just let me know... :cool

                              The only suggestion I would have for further improvement is to vent the propane locker into the bilge...NOT! :kidding
