Dauntless has the classic Herreshoff style interior, white paneling with wood trim. The layout out is open, spacious, with lots of natural light. She will comfortably sleep up to 5 people using the double v-berth the single quarter berth and the two salon settees. The head room is generous at 6’ 5” at the peak of the main salon.   Notched, tongue-and-groove, solid wood paneling enhances the classic look as do the solid wood teak floors.   The headliner is white with wood battens. An Espar forced air furnace was added by her current owner to keep things toasty, warm, and dry in this Pacific NW climate. Large opening bronze port lights together with the large opening overhead hatches provide plenty of natural light and ventilation. At night, new light fixtures provide excellent lighting.

During the 2013 refit by Morris Yachts the interior had a complete re-do. All the upholstery and cushions were replaced. The interior wood was all stripped and re-varnished. Painted surfaces and bulkheads were repainted. The interior lights were replaced. Galley and head sinks are new stainless and all counter surfaces were replaced as well.

Walkthrough starting forward and moving aft.

The forward Cabin has a traditional V-berth configuration. The cushions were new in 2013 and are oversized 8” foam. The split bunk has an insert peace giving the option of turning this berth into a generous double. Under the bunk is storage and the holding tank for the single head. Solid wood paneling lines the side ceilings. There are two cherry wood book shelves to port and starboard. Overhead is a large opening hatch. In addition there are three opening bronze port lights. Aft of the bunk and to port is a large bureau of 4 deep drawers with a large shelf space and mirror above.

Aft of the forward cabin and to starboard is the head. Re-built in the 2013 refit, this good-sized head has all the amenities one would want. The sink nozzle pulls out and doubles as a shower.   There is a generous sump under the slotted floorboards with electric sump pump.   Up and outboard are three large cabinets. The new stainless sink is large with a large storage area under. The toilet is a manual Raritan unit which was new in 2013. Another large cabinet can be found outboard and above the toilet itself. A small overhead opening hatch and opening bronze port light provide ventilation and natural light.

Across from the head to port is a generous-sized cedar lined hanging locker, with a fiddled shelf above. The keel stepped mast is just aft of the Head and does not intrude upon the salon space.

The Main Salon has an L-shaped settee to starboard with a straight settee to port. The salon table is a wall mounted is an easily used, drop-down unit. When down with the drop leaf deployed, the table comfortably seats five. When stowed up, it is completely out of the way making the salon open and spacious. Solid wood paneling is nicely accented by cherry wood trim with solid cherry cabinetry. To starboard and outboard are two cabinets divided by book shelf and plain shelf place below. To port and outboard, also two cabinets, but these are divided by a small three tiered book shelf and open shelf.   There is storage behind the settee seat back cushions. The water tanks are located under both settees with the 6 gallon water heater located under the starboard settee at the bottom of the “L”.

The U-shaped Galley is located aft of the salon and to starboard. The galley is large for a 36’ boat. It has a new large double stainless sink, new three burner Force 10 stove/oven/broiler, top loading fridge and microwave oven. There will be no complaints about storage with 5 deep cabinets and a voluminous top loading storage space. The refrigeration space is large and top loading as well. A cherry wood shelf with inserts for cup storage spans the open space between the galley and salon.

Opposite the galley on the port side is the stand-up navigators table. With single quarter berth aft.   This makes functional use of the space available. The nav table is large and has drawer and cabinet space under. Above and outboard is panel space for electronics. Currently the Clarion Stereo, Icom VHF, Espar thermostat and fuel tank gage are located here on the panel with cabinet just forward.   The single quarter bunk is just of the nave table makes for an excellent sea berth. Above the quarter berth is a large shelf running outboard and aft above.

Al the electrical breakers, battery switch, electric winch breaker and propane solenoid switch are located on the aft facing space under the companion way. The breaker panel hinges open for excellent access to the wiring behind.   A large counter space extends from the galley under the companion way with the breakers just above. 

This is a proven, functional and well executed interior, with of course the classic Morris touch.

Construction is hand laminated fiberglass with a solid fiberglass hull and cabin sides. The deck is fiberglass with a balsa core.

The hull sides were re-painted with new Awl grip. The deck and nonskid received the same treatment with new Awlgrip and non-skid. All the deck hardware and port lights were removed and re-bedded.   All exterior wood was stripped and re-varnished.   The windlass was replaced with new and a new front hatch was installed.
