ZANTINO III is a Classic Motor Yacht - In Styling and Accommodations.
With full side-deck walk-arounds, guests would typically enter through either Port or Starboard Wing Doors to the spacious, enclosed and air-conditioned AFT SALON. There is also an open AFT DECK, accessed through a teak door, and is large enough for entertaining or casual dining...with a newly installed Teak Deck.
The Spiral Staircase in the Port Corner of the AFT DECK leads to the GENERATOR/MACHINERY ROOM and SWIM PLATFORM.
From the Aft Deck, you enter the MAIN SALON through a Teak and Glass Door, which provides privacy and, at the same time two totally different entertainment or meeting areas. Cocktails and conversation starts on the AFT SALON, and guests can move forward to the more formal MAIN SALON
In the MAIN SALON, there are two different seating areas, with a large L-Shaped ("Convertible") Couch that provide pull-out beds for that occasional, unexpected overnight guest or grandchildren. The Owner's Desk in forward and to starboard, with some additional seating and a table for four...for meetings or a card game.
Walking forward along the starboard passageway, the POWDER ROOM is on the left, with a head and sink, adjacent to the PILOT HOUSE.
The FORMAL DINING SALON is just forward of the RAISED PILOT HOUSE, and on the same level as the MAIN SALON. The DINING SALON is classic, yet bright and comfortable, with seating for Six or Eight in blue and white upholstered chairs - around the highly polished Mahogany Dining Table. A custom Buffet is installed along the starboard side, with a striking Granite Top, with four swing-out SS cylindrical cabinets for dish and cutlery storage.
Through the swinging door on the forward starboard side of the DINING SALON is the GALLEY, where the Appliances have all been upgraded for the most efficient and professional preparation and service.

There were miscellaneous joinery upgrades and repairs made as well. There are two heads, one for the Captain's Quarters and the second for the Crew. There is a CREWS' MESS, with a dinette and settee, which is adjacent to the Laundry Area.
The ENGINE ROOM is full-height, with plenty of headroom and light to service the new CAT C-32 Diesel Engines, along with the other Engine Room Equipment.
The GENERATOR/MACHINERY ROOM is located all the way aft, just forward of the Transom, which allows a better balance and longitudinal center of gravity, and easier access to maintain the Mechanical and Electrical components.

To Starboard is the new 80 kW "Northern Lights" Generator, fitted with a PTO for the Hydraulic Bow Thruster. A second ship's Water Heater is also located on the starboard side.

There is a Bench Seat directly behind the HELM STATION, which does allow for Observation, with Chart Drawer built in. There is a Navigation Area on the port side of console, with all the ELECTRONICS and Instrumentation built in to a custom upper and lower console.
The ELECTRONICS have been continually upgraded, with the most recent upgrade that of the Sat TV system.
