LUCKY B features the standard four-cabin layout with three en-suite owner/guest cabins, plus an additional en-suite crew/guest cabin.

Finely crafted solid teak Euro-styled joinerwork and veneer surfaces are finished in satin varnish throughout, with custom burled table tops in salon. Cabin soles are satin finished teak with custom locking mechanisms. Head and shower areas are all painted white Awlgrip and feature Corian vanity tops, solid Corian sinks and molded floors. Hanging lockers are lined with cedar and feature automatic lights. White Ultraleather headliner with OceanAir hatch screens/blinds throughout. All interior fabrics, décor and bedding were upgraded in 2017, including faux leather seating, accent pillows, cool gel memory foam mattresses, and two sets of fitted sheets.

The H70’s main salon is extraordinarily large for a vessel of this size, due in part to her generous 18’ beam. A large L-settee is to port, with a beautiful burled table that expands as needed to accommodate six comfortably, and can be lowered to a coffee table position. Two folding seats are inboard and can be stored away while underway. To starboard is a full-length settee with burled table that can be expanded or lowered to coffee table height, and an Avanti built-in wine cooler. Light, ventilation and visibility are provided by two large deck hatches and teak-trimmed tinted deck house windows along the front and sides.


Aft and to starboard is an L-shaped navigation station with easy access to the cockpit. There is a comfortable pedestal chair along with built-in backlit switch panels, navigation instruments and remote-control panels for the water maker and tank monitors. The workspace also includes a chart table with custom storage for computer and (in adjacent cabin) a printer.


Further aft and to port is a long galley that is fully equipped for comfortable living at sea or on anchor. There are several well-thought-out storage lockers for glass, dinnerware and appliances. Some of the many features include:

  • Corian countertops
