Corkscrew - 2002 West Bay Lobster Boat 31’

 Corkscrew - 2002 West Bay Lobster Boat 31’

CORKSCREW is a lightly used Down East lobster yacht built by West Bay Boats on a Richard Alley design and finished by Peter Buxton of Deer Isle. She has excellent space and headroom for a vessel of this size, particularly in the wheelhouse, which has headroom of approximately 6' 6". Well equipped and tastefully finished, CORKSCREW has always been stored inside and boat-yard maintained since new. Any needed repairs or work has always been done promptly, and most recently, her bottom was stripped in 2010, barriercoated, and repainted with InterLux Pacifica bottom paint. In addition, her radar mast was re-Awlgripped in 2010, and a new Lewmar electric windlass installed. We feel that CORKSCREW is a very good example of her type and that she can be well recommended.

Accommodations & Layout

Hopping aboard CORKSCREW you're greated by a spacious, comfy cockpit. The stern bench seat lifts for stowage and two director's chairs add seating availability. The cockpit is open to the helm, allowing additional space to move about.

The helm area is clutter-free. Two stationary and two opening windshields, each with wipers, one sliding window at the helm, and three stationary side windows offer a bright helmstation. The engine sits mid-ship under a box that doubles as a seating area and chart stowage. The cockpit table has two folding leaves and is easily removed from the helmstation for storage.

Portside is a collapsable jumpseat and the companionway leading below decks.

The helmstation has comfortable seating and is nicely equipped.

Belowdecks is the galley, v-berth, and head.

The galley is equipped with a single bowl, stainless steel sink with pressure hot and cold water; a (2002) two-burner Seaward propane stove (no oven;) and fiberglass icebox located outboard the stove. A portlight with screen provides ventilation.

The queen-size v-berth comfortably sleeps two. There are bookshelves outboard, port and starboard; an overhead hatch (with screen) is equipped with a solar fan; two opening ports (each with a screen) provide further ventilation; and a chain locker is located on the forward bulkhead.

The head is located starboard (not equipped with a shower.) The hanging locker is between the vberth and head.

The cabin is heated by hot air from the engine. The interior is finished in white paint and varnished mahogany with a fiberglass cabin sole.
