The foredeck of the new Saare 47 belongs to your guests, fellow sailors, children or grandchildren.
The bathroom offers an elegant vanity unit, a lengthwise toilet with a holding tank and a separable shower area. Of course, the wastewater from the shower does not run into the bilge, but is pumped directly outside.
Equipped like this, you can start a new day.
The berth in the foredeck is 2 m long, 1.18 cm wide at the front and 2.26 cm wide at the aft end. There are reading lights fore and aft and, depending on your mood, you can sleep with your head forward or at the wide end. We also equip this huge bunk with the first-class mattress from Flexima from Austria as standard. The side hull windows offer exciting views of the harbor and the anchorage. They can be elegantly closed with a roller blind. There is space for an additional tank and plenty of storage space for larger items under the bunk, and two large drawers are also installed there.
Above the bunk there is a swallow’s nest on both sides with a shelf, a bookshelf and a small cupboard. Opposite the wet room you will find three large wardrobes, you decide whether they are equipped with shelves or a clothes rail. There will also be an optional foredeck extension with an island bed and another wet room.
Accessible from the deck there are large storage spaces in the bow. On deck, two small deck hatches are installed in front of the mast for ventilation in the passage and in the bathroom, as well as a large hatch above the bunk. Two large hull windows and two superstructure windows allow plenty of light into the cabin and bathroom. Integrated into the window there is another option for ventilation in the bathroom. There is a large anchor locker at the very front of the deck. A long chain, additional lines and a few fenders fit in here. If desired, we can install the stainless steel bowsprit on the bow. We still prefer this design to the elegant but less practical versions made of plastic. Practicality and safety clearly take precedence here. On the bowsprit there is a folding bow ladder that is ready for use at any time, the holder for the anchor and an attachment point for the gennaker or Code Zero.
On the deck, between the anchor box and the sail storage space, the anchor point for a fixed cutter stay or a removable stay is solidly mounted. The cutter stay can also be equipped with a furling system and then offers a quick, safe and easy change from the large headsail to the cutter jib from the cockpit when the wind increases.
The large hatch (opening approx. 60 x 60 cm) in the foredeck leads to the sail storage space. For example, a packed inflatable boat can easily be stowed in here and there is still room for the Code Zero, a gennaker and other sails. Directly out of the hatch and back in again, place and recover the large headsails. Additional lines, fenders, even large ball fenders and other equipment can also be stowed here.
For safety reasons, the bulkhead between the sail storage space and the foredeck is designed to be watertight as a solid collision bulkhead. The bow thruster is also located in this isolated area. There is a second area further forward under the anchor box, which is completely closed as a collision box. Even in the event of a major accident with damage to the bow, the Saare 47 is protected by these double collision bulkheads.
