  Very well cared for 1966 44' Pacemaker FDMY with original, all mahogany interior. Nice wide beam (14') coupled with a round bilged hull design allow for a sea kindly vessel with lots of room below decks.

General Layout:

Aft Deck:  Extended hardtop with port side console, chart table, forward storage locker, and wetbar aft of helm seat.  Wet bar has sink with running water, bottle storage above and 2 lockers below. All can be locked. Electronics are helm and overhead mounted. Aft deack is very roomy and a great social area on the boat.  Access to swim platform is aft starboard corner of deck via boarding ladder.  Port and starboard boarding access on aft deck completes the arrangement. 

Forward Deck: Built-in double bench seats with cushions and storage below for fenders, lines and electrical cord.  Danforth anchor on chocks, deck cleats and forward flag staff.  Deck is glass over marine plywood finished in semi-gloss white.  Nice toe rails finished bright with a natuaral mahogany finish.  Mahogany capped handrails along side of boat also finished bright.

Main Saloon: Large and bright saloon with new carpeted flooring, satin mahogany finish on bulkheads and nice headliner with overhead lighting (12V & 110V).  Cruisair unit keeps you cool as you sit on the loveseat and two armchairs which fit comfortably in this area with lots of room to move through compartment.  Electrical panel access to starboard with additional storage on each side of saloon. (3) additional storage lockers.  Windows have been rebuilt eliminating leaks common among boats in these areas.

 Aft Cabin:  Aft of the saloon and down 3 steps is the full beam aft cabin with another Cruisair unit.  Cabin features queen sized berth to port with (4) drawer cabinet below and single sized berth to starboard.  Two large, double hanging lockers, a full chest of drawers, and vanity provide for storage of all the gear needed for extended cruising.  Aft cabin also has a private head with full shower enclosure and additional storage. Headliner and mahogany finish are flawless. 

 Galley:  Forward of saloon is the galley and dinette which are  on the same deck level as the saloon-a very nice feature. Galley includes double stainless sink with hardwood cutting board cover, princess stove with oven and full sized refrigerator-all in excellent working order. Galley also has factory original breadbox, cutlery cabinet and forward storage compartment below forward windows. Plenty of cuboards above stove and fridge and below sinks. Engine room access through a hatch from the galley-no disturbing your saloon furniture!

Forward Stateroom:  Forward of galley and down three steps is the forward stateroom with Cruisar unit, v-berth, double hanging locker, chest of drawers and full head with shower. All original mahogany finish in flawless condition including headliner. Overhead is a nice sized hatch with screen to provide for plenty of ventilation.  Additional ventilation provided through the 6 opening portlights within cabin.  Access to rope locker and additional storage beneath berths completes this cabin.

 Hull:  Single planked (mahogany on white oak frames) carvel construction with round bilge made famous by Matthews and Pacemaker.  Exceptionally strong and in excellent condition.  No rot to be found.  New rubrails starboard side 2009, port 2011.  Bottom stripped, re-caulked, primed and painted in 09.  All exterior brightwork stripped, stained and varnished 2010-11.  Full beam teak swim platform and boarding ladder at stern of boat.  Beautiful mahogany transom, name boards and number boards 2011. New aft deck toe rails, finished bright, and cabin side moldings, 2011.

Running Gear:  Twin GM427 with Velvet Drive reduction gears.  Both gears rebuilt 2009-10.  Carbs rebuilt 2009, along with both electronic distributors.  New wires and plugs in 2009.  New fuel filtration system (spin on cartridges) installed in 2010 with new fuel lines and shut off valves.  Can run from both tanks or individual tanks to both engines.  Onan generator with auto-on electronic module make running the 110V system while away from shorepower simple.  Shafts, shaft logs, stuffing boxes, packing and boots all replaced/re-conditioned 2011.
