Interior view on Sofia Rey

Sofia Rey has the innovative Gozzard 36 open plan is a refreshing departure from the traditional sailing yacht layout that must be seen to be appreciated. The main bulkhead forward can be closed off to make a completely private stateroom with a centerline queen berth.

The interior was custom built for the first owner to provide 6’4” of headroom. The interior joinery is finely crafted and provides a warm ambiance and nautical charm. There are eleven opening ports and two deck butterfly hatches which provide excellent natural ventilation and ambient light. All ports are fitted with custom white curtains and both deck hatches and the companionway have custom screens. Cabinets all have cane inserts for ventilation. There is a brass clock.

Furnished with a large U-shaped settee that easily converts to a spacious double berth measuring 6′ 8” in length. Storage compartments are located forward and outboard of the settee back cushions with additional storage shelves above to port and starboard. A large cedar-lined locker is located above the forward section of the settee with even more storage beneath the settee. Moving aft on the starboard side there is a bureau with drawers and a small portable bench seat with storage inside. A clever bulkhead just aft of the bureau has a sliding top portion that can be lowered to open the space or raised to provide privacy to the forward section of the cabin. To port, there is another bureau with four large vertical drawers and a shelf on top. This bureau is covered by a full-length hinged door which doubles as a privacy door when opened.
