Review: Molokai Strait 75' "Hercules"

 
 
Review Tools Rate Review
The crew mess on the ship is located at the fore peak. A difficult area, at best, to utilize for anything more than a v-berth. Molokai came up with a solution that results in spacious, comfortable living quarters for a captain and two crew members. The kitchen is adequate, although occupants at the dining table can not sit across from each other. Getting on deck quickly and reducing interior wear is a 7-step stainless crew ladder that leads directly up to the foredeck.
Captainís stateroom, immediately aft, sports a double berth and hanging locker. The crew share a head/shower.
Pacific Coast Marine watertight doors protect the most energetic area on the ship, the engine room. Entrance is through the Dutch door from the main saloon corridor. With full headroom 6’7” there’s also full walk-around span. The engines have dry exhaust routed up through the funnel which also exhausts the salon fireplace. A work bench against the forward bulkhead has ample area for inside tasks. A second watertight door allows exit to the aft lazarette. Moloka’i Strait 75 is propelled by twin Cummins 6CTA8.3 in-line 6-cyinder marine diesel engines, turning 2500 rpm, with 36” propellers. Bow and stern thrusters are 50-hp diesels.

An outstanding expedition yacht as well as a spacious and comfortable liveaboard, the Molokai Strait 75' will satisfy the most adventurous dreams of the roamer, vagabond or swashbuckler who wants to sea the world in safety and style.
