Entry is from boarding gates amidships on either port or starboard sides. Portside entry is into the galley. Starboard entry is into an open area leading either straight into the galley, forward to the day head and guest cabins, or aft to the salon, dining area, and master stateroom. Engine, utility, and storage room entry is immediately aft of the landing area upon entering the salon. From this landing area starboardside, stairs lead up to the pilothouse or aft to the expansive aft deck lounge. Sand Pebble offers warm ambiance in her subtle decor. High gloss teak and holly soles throughout, teak cabinetry and trim, natural and custom lighting, fresh ventilation, air conditioning compressors in every room, stand-up head room, generous room sizing, and good taste all lend to a comfortable and inviting home combined with the most seaworthy of ship design and systems.
Down two steps from the two amidship entry doors, the salon offers a large and comfortable area that is inviting for lounging or entertaining. The full beam salon has spatial division with an entertainment center, bookshelves, and leather couch and chair on the port side and a large dining area on starboard side. A passthrough from the galley makes casual service easy. Attention was given to natural lighting and ventilation. The salon and dining area promote a voluminous feeling of openness and comfort.

While this "main" galley is located main deck level amidships, there is an additional small galley on the aft lounge deck utilizing propane as a back-up. An additional freezer in the utility room and an entire storage room for provisions enable one to be at sea for many months without the need for island market shopping.

Watertight door aft from the utility room opens to a large, well finished, bright, self-ventilating engine room. The John Deere engines were the last series of mechanical (not electronic) made in the US. The vessel is designed to run off either engine or both. Cruise speed on either continuous duty John Deere is approximately 8.2-8.4 knots. Cruise while running on both engines is 9.2. The difference in fuel consumption is 4.7gph vs 9.4gph at 1800 rpm.. There is twin disc transmission; 2:1 reduction gear. A cooling pump on each engine allows continuous cooling to the off engine. The engines are 20 degrees off centerline that that the handling of the vessel is not compromised while running on a single engine.
Special consideration was given to systems like the air condition and refrigeration. They are operated by continuous duty pool pumps and there are 2 for redundancy. Forethought allows for such things as engine removal with large hatches opening to the master stateroom. The holding tank is a "septic" system holding 250-300 internally macerated gallons and not requiring vents (eliminating odors), but additionally has pumpout capability.
Generous spare parts for engines and gensets including raw water pumps, impellers, zincs.

M/V Sand Pebble is 55×20 but her voluminous interior space belies her small ship capabilities. The seakeeping ability of this vessel has been proven in her 25,000 miles of South Pacific cruising. With the knowledge and experience of decades of sailing, the owners were able to customize a proven design for all world cruising comforts. The owners having been professionally in the furniture building business resulted in fine teak cabinetry and joinery including rounded corners and edges and enabled them to add aesthetics and practical design to their bluewater ship. M/V Sand Pebble recently arrived from the South Pacific via Transport ship for the purpose of sale. She is in excellent condition and would be near impossible to replicate; however, duplication in a larger sistership is what the owners plan to do upon sale of their beloved yacht. M/V Sand Pebble is ready to go – anywhere!
