General Description

William Crealock's design of the Offshore 54 Pilothouse maintains all the best features of Offshore's larger yachts; the renowned soft ride, safe walk-a-round decks and unmatched quality, all without compromising interior and exterior spaces.

Hot Chocolate II has the feel of a much larger boat with her wide side decks, roomy cockpit, open airy salon and galley, and very generous accommodations. From the cockpit, one enters the salon through one of two sliding doors and immediately the openness and brightness of her salon is evident. Lots of seating provides great space for entertaining or just relaxing. The galley is situated just forward of the salon and is integrated within the salon so owners and guest can still engage while preparing meals. Her galley includes all appliances necessary to prepare gourmet meals. Opposite the galley is a large storage area, integrated wine chiller, and countertop again making entertaining a snap. Moving forward and up a couple of steps to the pilothouse, one immediately notices a great deal of attention has been paid towards design of the space as visibility is great in all directions. Additional seating and a dinette are provided just aft of the helm and pilothouse doors are available both to port and starboard making docking and handling lines a breeze. From the pilothouse the flybridge is accessible via steps to starboard. The Flybridge is enormous with generous seating, storage, outdoor food prep, and tender davit and stowage. Moving down to the accommodations deck from the pilothouse, the VIP stateroom is located in the forepeak along with private and day access to the head. Moving aft the master stateroom is full beam with the queen berth located along the centerline. Storage can be found everywhere and the hanging lockers are lined in cedar. The large master head is situated to port. Within the companionway between staterooms are separate washer and dryer.




The Offshore 54' Pilothouse features a generous owner's stateroom plus one VIP stateroom. Attention to detail and superb craftsmanship are immediately evident, from the generous salon and galley to her roomy pilothouse.

Included is an integral sport deck with concealed swim ladder. Offshore offers ease of entry with port, starboard and transom hull doors, attesting to the functionality of the yacht's design.
