1993/2021 52’ West Bay 

For over 50 years West Bay SonShip has been producing high quality semi-custom yachts renowned for their engineering excellence, quality of construction and pride in the fit and finish of interiors.

The 52 was built from the same mould as was the venerable West Bay 58 and carries the same beam measurement (17' 1") and this is a beamier yacht than the 54 West Bay. The layout of the 52' pilothouse motor yacht is essentially the same as in the 58' model.

In 2021 Next Dance underwent a comprehensive 6 month refit at the West Bay yard. All onboard systems were examined and many were updated and a complete transformation of the salon, galley and pilothouse was carried out.

"Next Dance" represents a terrific and rare opportunity to own one of the most exceptional cruising motor yachts built in this size class. She's a classic Northwest cruiser that leaves little to be desired in comfort, style and safety. An ideal couple's or family boat boasting three staterooms with two heads, premium systems and luxury furnishings. Topping the large list of equipment is her stabilization. Something rarely seen on yachts this size.   The West Bay 52/58 series features a well-appointed galley a large fully equipped pilothouse, walk-in engine room with full standing headroom, walk-around side-decks with extended safety handrails and spacious flybridge with helm station and lounge seating.

‘Next Dance’ is a shed kept Alaska and Mexico veteran that is ready to cruise.

In 2021 Next Dance underwent a comprehensive 6 month refit at the West Bay yard. This updated many of the onboard systems and included a complete transformation of the salon, galley and pilothouse.

Stepping aboard from the hull molded swim platform through a wide transom door you enter a large cockpit that is protected from weather with a partial hardtop and stainless framed canvas brow. There are side decks with high railings both port and starboard for easy line handling or to take you to the bow. The generous cockpit is well laid out with many features of a much larger boat and a floor hatch opens to access a deep lazarette that accommodates batteries, chargers, inverter, water maker and lots of storage.

Cockpit Features:

Flip up wing docking station on port side

Three burner propane cooktop on port side

Sink on starboard side

Stairs up to boat deck and flybridge on port side

Stairs down to walk in engine room

Propane locker

Swim shower


Entering the salon through double doors the extent of the retrofit is evident and you will think you have stepped aboard a much newer vessel. The double salon doors are wonderful for opening up the yachts interior to the outdoors and for entertaining aboard. The salon is surprisingly large, taking full advantage of the boat's wide 17 foot beam and it is an ideal spot for entertaining guests aboard. Large side windows bring in ample natural light.

All interior oak surfaces on the main level have been refinished in a chestnut stain and the wall coverings, carpet and upholstery are all in neutral and earth tone colours. To port is a comfortable built in L shaped settee and to starboard are two ultra-leather barrel chairs separated by a custom cabinet housing a large TV with hydraulic lift.

Forward to starboard is an L shaped side bar cabinet with the galley to port. Most West Bay have the galley in the pilothouse, this is one of a few built with the galley on the main level offering a much better layout. This galley has the counter space, features and storage to make any chef happy.

Galley Features:

Oak floor

Custom Corian countertops

Miele oven and cooktop

Ample countertop space

Trash compactor

Full size Haier double door Stainless fridge with 2 freezer drawers

Double Stainless square sinks with counter inserts to increase counter space

Hanging/pull out galley faucet

Numerous drawers and cupboards


Up three steps you arrive in the spacious pilothouse with excellent visibility for both captain and guests. A new built in L-settee (raised 7” to improve site lines) with a large table are to port behind the centerline helm, the refinished table is a hi-lo with a folding leaf. The increased space from not having the galley up enhances the well laid out dash and lower helm with large drawers and cupboard to port and doors both port and starboard to provide easy access to the side decks. 

Pilothouse Features:

Standard Horizon VHF

Dual Raymarine C120 displays (plotter, radar, and depth sounder)

Cameras display on C120

On the starboard side one set of steps leads to the second helm on the roomy flybridge and another staircase leads belowdecks to the boat's three staterooms.

The huge full beam owners cabin is amidships aft with the ensuite head on the port side. This stateroom features a walk around queen bed, ample drawers, cupboards and a big cedar lined hanging locker for storage. The large ensuite has separate stall shower, vanity cabinet and electric toilet. 

From the lower level moving forward the guest stateroom with twin bunks is to port complete with a cedar lined hanging locker and drawers for storage. Across to starboard is the guest/day head with a separate stall shower, vanity and electric toilet. 

Forward in the bow is the VIP stateroom with an island queen bed, overhead hatch, 2 cedar lined hanging lockers and drawers for storage.

A hatch in the lower companionway floor provides access to a cavernous storage area that also houses the bow thruster and Planar diesel furnace. All interior oak surfaces on the lower level are blond oak colour.

Interior Features:

Numerous opening portholes for light and ventilation

Hidden screen on salon to cockpit doors

LED lighting throughout

Valance lighting in salon

New carpets

2 separate diesel forced air furnaces

Up the stairs you reach the upper boat deck that has a crane, tender storage and upper helm . The flybridge is expansive with a centerline helm, ample seating and excellent visibility for captain and guests. There are dual helm chairs for captain and mate behind a well laid out dash and controls including GPS, depth sounder, VHF radio, gauges, bow thruster and anchor windlass controls, and lots of built-in bench guest seating with storage underneath.

A hallmark feature of West Bay’s is the separate entrance stairs to a spacious stand up engine room. Opening the hatch from the cockpit you walk down a few steps, the generator is to port and a separate washer and dryer is to starboard. The stand up engine room and beam means the engines have reasonable room to work around. The reliable MAN engines have less than 1000 hours since being rebuilt by Philbrooks Boatyard in 2011 and are maintained annually by KNW Diesel.
