"The Sandra Faye", is our Fresh Water Bayliner 3870 Explorer Motor Yacht.
It's For Sale if the offer is right!
It has been a great boat for us. We used it on lake Superior for the last 3 summers and have made a bunch of upgrades.
Whether you want to go out on the water for a day, a weekend, a month or a live aboard for a year or more, this could be the boat for you!

Here is the back deck.
A great place for coffee in the morning or perhaps to do some fishing.
In the background you can see the dinghy
and the grill, both are great things to have on a yacht.
Here is the dining area.
Seats 6 to 8 people. Great palce to eat, socialize or play cards. It also drops down to become a bed, great for kids.
This is the lower helm.
You can drive from here and it is where all of the AC and DC control circuit breakers, fuses and switches are located.
It has its own communications, navionics, steering and engine controls.
To the left is the central hallway.
It leads from the dining area to the master bedroom, past the kitchen, guest room and guest bath.
Above is the kitchen with a double sink, running water, electric range with oven and a new microwave.
To the right is the full sized refrigerator/freezer. It holds a lot of pop, cold water and food. It is one of the major things that make this such a good live aboard boat.
Above is the 2KW inverter that converts 12 volts DC into 120 volts AC to run the microwave, TV, computers, a CPAP at night and any other 120 volt appliances. But not the air conditioner/heater or electric range, which takes to much power so shore power or the on-board 7.5KW generator are used.
Above is a look into the guest bedroom. You can see part of the bed and the closet. My phone is not the best camera for taking these pictures where there is not a lot of room. This is basically a queen bed.
To the right is the master bedroom. The bed is basically a queen bed as well. You can walk part way up either side of the bed. There is some drawer space at the foot of the bed. Under the mattress there is a panel that can be removed yielding even more storage. In the headboard there is a panel that can be opened yielding a large storage space and another panel above the head board with even more space.
