    Recognized in many different ports around the world, Mustang has a fame all her own. She was originally built for an experienced American yachtsman. The hull is the well-known, performance hull of Doug Peterson’s Ocean 80 series built at Southern Ocean Shipyard. To incorporate a large lazarette, the boat was extended three feet, then taken for fitting out to world-class Camper & Nicholsons Shipyard. A trailblazer in her day, Mustang is one of a handful of boats in this size and price range that has a true pilothouse---completely enclosed, functioning for piloting and lounging --that also is open to a spacious lower salon. Three staterooms aft for owner and guests, all with ensuite heads, plus two cabins and head forward for crew, complete the beautifully finished interior layout.

    On deck a secure, spacious cockpit and steering cockpit directly aft are the heart of deck life. Social areas on the aft deck and foredeck can be organized easily.  

    Though Mustang can accommodate up to three crew, this mini-superyacht can be sailed with two or three sailors. From the pilothouse full operational control of the yacht is available. From the outside helm one person can control the helm, furlers, and primary sail trim. The 2007 in-mast furling rig was taken out in the 2018/2019 refit and completely refurbished and painted; as well all the standing and running rig was replaced. Four new sails were added in Dec. 2020.  During this extensive refit the entire yacht was painted and new decks installed with a new winch package, deck hardware and hatches. New electronics and galley equipment have been added. In 2021 the engine and large generator were replaced to complement the small generator replaced in 2018. Exterior varnish has been stripped and built back up while Inside renovations and replacement of soft goods invite living at its best. A walk-in engine room with two entries and a crane for launching the tender are an added benefit. In August 2022 Mustang completed her annual haul-out/yard period. The bottom was painted, rudder dropped and serviced, zincs replaced, thru-hulls and underbody gear checked, so she is ready for immediate cruising.

    Mustang offers the enviable richness of a lovely classic interior in a modern, performance, pilothouse, superyacht.


    Deck Living:

    Mustang has an enormous cockpit for outside living with an elevated steering area directly aft. The center cockpit table has leaves that can be folded down or up for full dining. A refrigerated compartment in the table makes life easy. Fully cushioned settees surround the cockpit. Bimini and side closures protect during inclement weather. Deck areas fore and aft can be configured for additional social areas.

    Pilothouse/Deck and Lower Salons:

    From the cockpit, a door leads to the raised pilothouse/deck salon. To starboard is the navigation area with a desk and instrument console; instruments can be hidden when the area is being used as a deck salon. To port is a settee and low coffee/cocktail table. The settee provides a second access to the engine room below. The deck salon opens fully to the lower salon, fostering a remarkable sense of space and light. To port is a large dining table surrounded by settee and chairs inboard. Forward is a console of cabinets and a wall-mounted TV. To starboard is a cocktail table with curved settee and a lovely bar which can be formally tended if desired. It has storage for bottles and glasses.

    Galley and Crew Quarters:

    Forward of the lower salon, a door leads to the galley. To port are all amenities (See Galley List) including double stainless-steel sinks, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, microwave, stove top and oven, plus good counter space and storage; to starboard is the crew mess. Extra storage is here, including a freezer under one of the settees. Forward are two cabins: the port one has a single berth while the starboard one has over/under bunks; they share a large head forward.

    Master and Guest Staterooms:

    From the pilothouse, stairs lead aft to the master stateroom, two guest staterooms and engine room access. The master stateroom is luxurious with a centerline queen bed, night stands and settees on each side, closets, cabinets and drawers for plenty of storage. The settee on the port side can convert to a 6 ft. sea berth. Various types of lighting permit reading or create mood. The ensuite bathroom provides a very large, enclosed shower with seating, Vacuflush fresh-water toilet, sink, counter space and mirrored cabinets.

    Moving forward, the port guest stateroom has a full-sized bed, hanging locker, drawers and cabinets for storage as well as an ensuite head with shower, fresh-water toilet, sink, counters and mirrored cabinets. A door from the head to the hall gives this head the flexibility to be a day head. The starboard stateroom has twin beds with a bureau between. Storage is comparable to the port stateroom. The ensuite head with the usual amenities, also houses the washer/dryer and one of the accesses to the engine room that is beneath the raised pilothouse/upper salon.

    The interior is beautifully detailed in classic teak. Shades and curtains for portholes and hatches, various lighting options and top-quality execution of interior furnishings offer a timeless, peaceful, environment for luxurious living aboard while cruising.

    Mustang provides the best of both worlds: performance and modern systems with luxurious living in classic style. Designed for ocean racing performance, the hull became the foundation for a boat exquisitely detailed and finished in classic teak throughout the interior. This performance/living marriage and the “big boat” superyacht features of Mustang, including a true pilothouse/deck salon and shallow draft add up to a combination in one boat that is hard to find to this day. After extensive refit Mustang is rarin’ to go—fast, in safety, comfort and style—either coastal cruising or her 5th trip around the globe.
