  1. O-72’s teak wood and onyx theme reappears here as well, in an uninvolved masculine design. Executed in a geometric pattern, it provides plenty of under-counter towel and instrument storage. A striking, white oval inset sink is accented with antiqued brass plated fixtures. The shower is easily large enough for two.
  2. Also forward at port, a smaller stateroom provides two bunk beds, as well as a clothes storage cabinet. In this particular arrangement, passengers who use this bunk stateroom would also have access to the VIP head. The builder suggests this as an option room, which might rather be used as an office, or in the case of families, for children. The space might also be used, for long term cruisers, as a bulk supply larder.
  3. Here as shown, the engine room lazarette/mess is well organized and large enough for adequate stowage. Microwave, refrigerator and sink are well placed. Stairs on both sides provide fast access to the cockpit or the aft deck. The lazarette could also house a washer/dryer, if needed.
  4. Opposing the walk-thru lazarette is the crew stateroom with twin bunks, a shower and seperate sink.
  5. O-72’s twin 800 hp Caterpillar 3406 diesels drive this beauty down the course, arrow-straight due to her keel, with Wesmar stabilizers holding steady as she goes. Docking, she is predictable thanks to a bowthruster and exterior controls. The engine room is well-executed and reflects the seasoned engineering that comes with the Offshore line.
  6. Offshore yacht owners remain loyal, many attending annual rendezvous year after year. They gather to glory in their Offshore vessels – Motoryachts, Cockpit Yachts, Pilothouse Yachts, at lengths of 52, 54, 58, 62, 68, 72, 80, 85, to 90 feet. A grand array of styles and models.

    This Offshore 72 is an excellent cruising yacht...
    sure to be a popular addition to the Offshore legend.
