The twenty-second Hampton 686 features an utterly refined layout. From the swim platform, enter a center water-tight door to the crew quarters and engine room, or step up either staircase to an aft deck. The aft deck is covered and features a stunning table and seating. Side gates permit access from either side using the Marquip folding steps or a permanent dock placement. There is a set of docking controls both port and starboard. There is a fridge under the table, and a day head to starboard of the wide glass and stainless steel framed salon doors. The side decks extend forward on either side to entrance doors forward, and to the forward deck, with seating and anchor gear. A set of stairs leads to the flybridge.

Enter the salon aft, and step down to a sumptuous, sunken living room with occasional chairs, an L-shaped sofa, tables, and a 46” TV lifting from a cabinet on the port side. The windows are large and provide wonderful views of the seascape. Details of decor and joinery abound and are enhanced by rich wood grain and soft leather and fabrics. Portside there is a companionway that leads aft to the crew quarters and engine room. The crew enjoys a head with a shower across, a large counter space, and ready access to the engine room, electrical components, and the main ship’s electric panel.

From the salon, step up to port past the bar featuring a wine cooler, fridge, and accouterment drawers. Steps forward are stairs to the sky lounge and the port side deck door. Looking ahead there is a dining table with U-shaped seating facing the country-style galley - complete with spacious granite countertops and a complete suite of high-end stainless steel appliances. A chef’s dream. Passing the stools at the counter is the starboard side deck door and the companionway down to the accommodation area.

The curved staircase opens to a richly detailed foyer featuring an inlaid stone compass rose in the teak and holly sole. Doors open to reveal a washer and dryer. Across is the guest stateroom, with up-down bunks and an ensuite head and shower. Forward to the VIP stateroom with an island queen berth and an ensuite head and shower. Aft leads to the sumptuous master stateroom - rich in details that include a vanity and glass-doored bookcase, large, opening windows, and a spacious head with a large marble-clad, shower stall.

The stairs from the galley area lead up to the sky lounge and helm with stunning surround views, two Stidd chairs, and a complete suite of navigation gear. To starboard is a spacious L-shaped settee with a fold-out table, and on the port side is a “desk,” with a built-in fridge, aft is the sky lounge day head. Sliding door leads to the aft deck where you find the barbecue, sink, fridge/icemaker and counter along with the large boat deck featuring a hydraulic davit.
