Interior Accommodations

JACA’s interior layout is well conceived for the life of a cruising sailor – tending equally to offshore cruising and extended time living aboard while in port. Below decks, one finds shelter and elegance while still enjoying their surroundings through the abundant ports, windows, and hatches. Starting forward is the bunk room with excellent storage configuration. Continuing aft is the salon – a dinette and L-shaped settee is to port with a straight settee to starboard.  Two steps up aft brings you to the raised portion of the cabin.  The navigation center is aft of the starboard settee situated in the raised area. To port is the large galley. Aft of the galley and to port of the companionway is the head and work room. To starboard and aft of the companionway is the master stateroom with quarterberth.

The interior joinery is maple, with solid wood used extensively including corner posts, door and window frames, door fronts and louvered cabinet doors. Bulkheads are high quality maple veneers over ply.  The cabin sole is teak and holly with numerous locking access hatches fitted throughout.  The workshop sole is finished with rubber non-skid. The overhead is gloss white painted tongue and groove panels which are removable for accessing wiring and deck hardware. The galley and head counters are hard surface with built in fiddles. Abundant overhead, reading, and task lights are fitted.

The forward bunk room is entered through a door at the forward end the salon. There are two bunks along the starboard hull side. A hanging locker is located forward and to port, with six large drawers beneath a bench above. There is an additional locker above the bench. A hatch, reading lamps and overhead lights provide illumination and ventilation.

Aft of the forward stateroom is the main salon. This space is comfortable and open, lit with fixed hull ports and overhead hatches.  To port is an L-shaped settee surrounding a fixed dining table. To starboard there is a straight settee. Beneath the settees and outboard behind the seatbacks there is abundant storage in addition to louvered lockers above and outboard and numerous bookshelves.


As you move aft from the lower salon up two steps , JACA’s most outstanding feature is her raised cabin with large windows.  The windows are mirror tinted and provide excellent vision and light for the galley cook and navigator.

The navigation station is to starboard.  The nav table surface is Corian, matching the galley counter. An instrument console houses the radar/chartplotter, multi display, Tank Tender monitor, sideband radio and VHF. Outboard to starboard are the 12 volt DC and 120 volt AC breaker panels. The navigator’s seat lifts up to access storage under. Outboard of the seat is a storage locker. Additional storage cabinets are located outboard and beneath the chart table. Above the nav station seatback is a small shelf where one can sit and look forward while underway.

Adjacent to the navigation station to port is the spacious galley. The countertop is one piece Corian with fiddles and a flush mount sink. Toe kicks and good counter height make working in this area very comfortable. Beginning at the aft inboard and working around the galley in a clockwise direction is a deep double stainless sink. Located on the vessel’s centerline and high, this sink will drain overboard at any angle of heel. There is a pressure hot/cold water faucet and selectable fresh/raw water foot pump. Forward is a large open counter space. At the forward, outboard end is the top loading refrigerator/freezer compartment (there is also an auxiliary fridge in the “work room”). A sliding door locker with shelves is located outboard. Aft is the Force 10 propane stove/oven with three burners. There are six large drawers and two large lockers beneath the counter, with a single small locker beneath the stove. An overhead hatch helps keep the galley ventilated.

To port of the companionway is the aft head and separate shower stall.  The head and shower is finished in white laminate with gloss varnished maple trim and Corian countertop. The Groco manual head is at the aft outboard corner facing forward.  Outboard and forward is a counter with sink and pressure water faucet with lockers outboard and below. There is a large mirror mounted on the forward bulkhead. The separate shower stall is aft and inboard in the compartment.  She shower features an integral molded sump with adjustable height shower wand mount. Access to the workshop is through the shower.

Aft and to starboard of the companionway is the aft stateroom. The hull ceiling is trimmed with maple battens. There is excellent light and visibility from the stateroom, with a cabin side window, two hull ports and an opening port into the cockpit beneath the dodger. With the multiple ports and windows there is plenty of airflow and natural light in this cabin. There are two drawers forward and below this bunk along with large bin storage located beneath the mattress and wood slat boards. A large hanging locker and shelves are located forward and outboard. Reading lamps are located at the head of the berth.

The workshop/mechanical room is accessed via the shower stall.  This space is finished in white laminate and maple trim with a rubber tile sole.  Overhead dome lights, hull side fixed ports, and opening port into the cockpit provide light and ventilation. A workbench runs along the hull side outboard.  An auxiliary Waeco 12v fridge is located inboard. The steering system is easily accessed at the aft end of the compartment.

Deck & Hull

JACA’s hull is coated with gray Awlgrip linear polyurethane paint with red boot stripes and a wide cove stripe in line with the hull side fixed ports. Her deck is painted with white Awlgrip. Nokskid on her foredeck and side decks is white Awlgrip Griptex with teak overlay nonskid in the cockpit, anchor well and pads at the mast. A welded steel anchor platform/bowsprit extends over the slightly-raked bow and has articulating stainless steel rollers for the self-launching dual anchors. The double bow pulpit extends all the way forward around the anchor platform.  The anchor platform top is flat and wide enough for safe footing. The bow/stern pulpits and stanchions are all constructed of 1 1/4” stainless tube.  Stanchion heights are taller than average, and she features an extended stern pulpit that wraps to the forward end of the cockpit for added safety and security. Forward of the raised salon cabin top, the deck is nearly flush except for the raised hatch foundations. The T-shaped cockpit is large and deep, protected by a canvas dodger on a teak spray coaming and held by a stainless bow and integral cockpit arch. The steering wheel is removable and is lashed to the stainless rail while at anchor to provide an immense open cockpit space for lounging and dining. The “walk-over transom” features a very wide and easily accessed swim platform. The next step up to the transom is generous and provides a comfortable place to sit and works well for scuba or swimming off the transom.  The swim step is fitted with a fold down stainless swim ladder and hot and cold shower.

A beautifully constructed stainless steel arch is integral with the stern pulpit. Solar panels, radar and GPS antennas are mounted on the arch, which also serves as the dinghy davit.

On-deck storage is in a very large bow locker which also provides a watertight bulkhead forward, and in two large quarter lockers. Forward is the fiberglass-lined anchor chain bin with false floor and overboard drain.

Construction details

The hull and deck are constructed of mild steel (minimum 44,000 psi yield) with a plating thickness of  1” on the keel bottom, ¼” on the keel sides, 3/16” on the hull skin, 11 gauge on the house, deck, cockpit, and transom and 10 gauge on the skeg and rudder. The angle framing system runs both transversely and longitudinally. All seams are welded inside and out. 316 Stainless steel attachment points are provided on deck for stanchions, windlass, toe rails, chainplates, and companionway hatch. The toe rail is a highly polished 316 stainless steel 1 1/2" by 3" rectangular section tube and is mounted on integral welded tabs set just high enough to free all deck water quickly. The toe rail is strong enough for preventers, spinnaker blocks, fenders, and lashings to be tied off anywhere along the boat's sides. Integral in the keel structure is a baffled fuel tank. Below the fuel tank is a sealed, lead filled ballast compartment in a bulb appendage. A separate propane locker is integral with the transom. A forward sail locker with deck access provides a watertight collision bulkhead. A self-draining anchor tray is built in. The bow-sprit/anchor roller is steel fabrication and welded into the hull. The salon windows are laminated and heat strengthened reflective coated glass.

The original coating system began with the entire hull being sandblasted inside and out, followed by molten zinc flame-sprayed on the hull above the waterline and on the deck. The entire hull and deck exterior were then coated with successive layers of epoxy (Devoe 235) to a 20 mil thickness. Awlgrip sandable fairing paints were then applied and sanded smooth. The finish coat on the hull and deck is Awlgrip linear polyurethane with a contrasting boot top and cove stripe.

The sandblasted hull interior was sprayed with two coats of zinc-rich epoxy and hand brushed behind all framing. Extra coats of epoxy were applied in the bilge areas. The hull is insulated with polyurethane spray foam to a thickness of 1-1/2” to 3”. Over the foam, the hull sides are lined with white painted mahogany plywood. The deck is finished with Awlgrip Griptex non-skid surface. The cockpit seats, floor and coaming tops as well as the transom steps are overlaid with teak and rubber.
