The swim platform is the obvious place from which to bottom fish and clean the catch. All the stainless steel, including the impressive saloon door and the saloon table pedestal, is fabricated in-house by Icon Custom Boats. Under the bait station is the dinghy locker, big enough for a 3m inflatable, plus engine. On the other side of the transom is a full width settee with storage for a cockpit table. Covers protect the black-and-white striped upholstery in the cockpit when the boat’s in fishing mode or on the marina. There are large lockers in the gunwales and two saltwater washdown outlets aft on the port side, for sluicing the bait table, swim platform and cockpit. Retractable cleats on the gunwales will take fenders for rafting up, which is common in the Sounds. COOL STYLE Luminaire’s interior is pleasantly bright, thanks to the choice of fabrics, coverings and colours. Working with Robson, the owner opted for light- coloured marine vinyl head linings and Ultraleather upholstery, wall and dashboard panelling. Even the pair of Navigator helm seats is upholstered in Ultraleather, but in a mid-tone shade of brown. Luminaire's interior features light marine vinyl head linings and Ultraleather upholstery, wall and dashboard panelling, contrasting with dark chocolate Ultraleather under the windscreens. The boat's blond, deep-grained French oak cabinetry complements its pale timber floor coverings. The Ultraleather-wrapped helm console houses two Furuno Navnet 14-inch displays, Volvo digital instruments, Autoanchor controls and Jabsco remote spotlight control. 0314-3 as fitted to garcia yachts france tiger props fitted to customs vessel tiger props fitted to arataki pilot boat new zealand ireland subscribe online at www.mags4gifts.co.nz/boating-nz 43 Tested_Icon_March14.indd 43 19/02/2014 7:55:18 a.m.
