With her tower and hard top installed, Blue View has been nestled in our "make-ready" bay as our crews work on finalizing her exterior paint and installing her interior cabinetry.

Blue View's cockpit bulkhead will soon receive the final coat of clear coat. With the paint crew nearly wrapped up in the cockpit, the mechanical crew will soon be able to install the ice-maker in the lower mezzanine.

The spray rails are currently being fabricated by our metal works department. Her final exterior features, the bootstripe and bottom paint, will be applied after her first sea trial in December.

Up on the flybridge, our electrical department is running the console wiring rough-ins. The tower wire pulls are nearly complete. Next up, the bridge panel will be built and installed.

On the inside of Blue View, the salon is beginning to take shape as our interior cabinetry department installs the sofa bases. The galley dinette is currently being constructed and will be installed soon. Within the lower levels, teak plank floors were installed in the heads, cabinetry installations are in progress, and pullman bunks have been fabricated and installed in the staterooms.
