FIRST LIGHT is a one-of-a-kind motor yacht from the 1970’s that has been exceptionally maintained by her current owner. The yacht blends vintage charm with functionality and comfort to create a desirable yacht for cruising with the family or friends. This motor yacht is the last wooden Stephens Marine to be built.

The luxury yacht’s interior has a casual, beachy styling with mahogany paneling to create a welcoming ambiance. Large windows surround the main salon allowing the space to be flooded with natural light as well as provide sensational views of the chosen destination. FIRST LIGHT’s main salon features a sofa, two chairs and a table. Just forward is the lower helm, which allows for the captain to stay in the conversation while driving. A few steps down from the main salon is a well-equipped galley, perfect for prepping meals.

The motor yacht offers two beautifully appointed staterooms that accommodate up to six guests comfortably. FIRST LIGHT’s master stateroom features a V-berth with ample storage and hanging lockers. The stateroom is complete with its own en-suite bath with a shower. The yacht’s other guest stateroom has over/under bunks and its own en-suite bath. The accommodations layout makes this yacht ideal for cruising with another couple or the family.

FIRST LIGHT has a classic deck layout that makes her ideal for cruising, fishing and water sports. Her teak-planked cockpit with walk through transom and custom live baitwell is exceptionally spacious and has a stainless/teak ladder that leads the flybridge. The flybridge is perfect for spending days relaxing as you cruise. The flybridge features a helm with two helm chairs and full instrumentation as well as ample guest seating with unobstructed views.

In 2018, motor yacht FIRST LIGHT received a complete cosmetic refit where she received new hull paint, including the decks and bridge.
