Pacific Seacraft built this Saga 409 model in the California factory prior to the company’s relocation to Washington, NC in 2007. Final commissioning was completed by Pacific Seacraft in Washington, NC, in 2010, at Carolina Wind Yachting Center. Special equipment for this fast cruiser includes Selden in-mast furling, variable geometry rig with Doyle furling Code-0 spinnaker, twin Diamond Series Edson wheels, carbon fiber rudder, electric Harken cabin-top winch, electric Harken primary winches, heavy-duty stern rails and bow pulpit, radar/antenna arch, and more. The interior is beautifully finished in varnished cherry and complemented with dark Corian counter tops. You must inspect this Saga 409 to see first-hand just how extraordinary she is.
Berths for six are provided in the V-berth (2), port and starboard settees (2), and aft quarter berth (2). All cabins are finished with varnished cherry wood providing a light and airy feel. Down the companionway, the chart table is located conveniently to starboard with the galley opposite. Aft to starboard is the guest cabin with a double quarterberth. Traditional port and starboard settees are upholstered with light-colored UltraLeather, and a beautifully crafted cherry dining table folds down from the main bulkhead. The head is to port, forward of the main cabin, and includes a separate shower and electric Vacu-Flush head.
The galley is equipped with a front-loading refrigerator, a top-loading freezer, Rival microwave, Force 10 gimbaled propane stove and oven, and abundant storage. Completing the galley setup is a double stainless steel sink, hot and cold pressure water, Seagull water purifier, and plenty of storage in cabinets both above and below the work surface. Dark Corian is elegantly used on counter surfaces.
A reliable Vacu-Flush electric marine head is provided along with hot and cold pressure water. Hot water is supplied electrically by a hot water heater when dockside and via a heat exchanger from the engine when underway. A 12-volt shower sump pump discharges shower water
