I designed and built this boat myself and there have been
a few wrinkles which needed to be ironed out. These
items have been corrected. That does not mean a new
owner might see things they would change. The boat is
built to be easily worked on.
Falcon has been documented since 1991, as a pleasure
vessel and fishery. It was my intention to do a little fishing
for profit. Never did it, but the documentation is still there.
In the pictures above you can see the cooking surface. In
the storage beneath I used those square storage jugs to
hold rice, lentils, oatmeal, beans and other dry foods.
The cover below is just a piece of the same material used on
the cabin sides. It stows and deploys quick and easy, and
can be made more permanent with a bit of sewing.
The big box above is the thickly insulated (almost 5
inches all around) refrigerator and the easily accessible
Adler-Barbour Super Cold Machine compressor. The box
is about 6.5 cubic feet, with a proper 'trap' drain, and can
be used as a plain ice box if you don't want to use the
Adler-Barbour unit. The AC/DC supply panel is also a bit
over done, but I wanted enough space to easily expand.
The autopilot on Falcon is the Autohelm 6000 with the
Type 2 12 volt rotary drive. It works perfectly, but if you
wish to update to the very latest system, you need only
purchase the computer and control head. The compass
and rotary drive work fine. The cockpit speakers are new
and have never been used, though the wiring is connected
to them.

This boat is well built, beautiful, comfortable, and reliable.
It is not a cosmetic mantle piece. You will find areas where
you can make it look better with sanding, fairing, and
finishing. On the other hand, you can turn the key and start
cruising, not worrying about a scratch here or there.
The table comes down or goes up in about a minute and is
stored against the forward fore and aft head bulkhead,
where it is out of the way and safe from banging around in
heavy seas.

The pivoting desk chair is an old Grady White item that
works good, but is in need of new cushions and
upholstery. I am presently stripping off the armrests and
recovering them with the same material on the upper cabin
sides.

Falcon may seem plain and uninteresting inside, I hope the
buyer will see it as an opportunity to make the boat their
own, with their own sense of style and identity. Everything
is solid and strong and the paint is easily removed, should
you wish, as is the material. Get teak or other veneers and
make your own gorgeous interior. Cut an anchor  or
dolphin into the table leg, or replace it with a solid teak
masterpiece. Install picture frames and favorite photos on
the small cubbyhole doors next to the bunk. Change the
outlet plates. Get exotic rugs or cover the cabin sole with
thin teak and holly plywood. As far as the potential to make
this a $100,000 plus yacht, it is here. There are hundreds
of great ideas a new owner can do easily to make this a
beautiful and uniquely personal yacht.

The head is an all bronze Wilcox-Crittendon 51 Junior and
works fine. The company still supports this head and parts
are cheap. It is plumbed to fresh water to eliminate any odor,
and only pumps to the holding tank, meaning never a clog in a
hard to reach 'Y' valve. The holding tank pumps overboard
with a macerator activated by a key switch to meet  legal
requirements.
