FAIRWIND’s interior is bright, elegantly crafted, and easily accessed via a gentle four step companionway to starboard in the cockpit. Handrails are fixed either side of the companionway and storage bins are below hinged steps. The interior is masterfully crafted in solid teak and teak veneers. The teak is coated with varnish and hand rubbed to a satin finish. Select trim pieces are gloss finished. Ample handholds, countertop and shelf fiddles are among the thoughtful details found throughout. Most locker doors are finished with woven cane for ventilation. The cabin sole is teak and holy with ample access hatches. The overhead is padded vinyl over marine plywood with teak battens; fully removable for access to deck hardware and wiring. Overhead dome lights and well placed reading lights are thoughtfully located around all cabin spaces. Upholstery is a comfortable and neutral beige.
The interior layout is ideal for living aboard or cruising. The raised salon/pilothouse is just forward of the cockpit and centrally located in the boat. Forward and down is the galley to port with bunk room to starboard. A forward head is forward of the galley with access from the passageway or forward stateroom. Aft of the raised salon is the full beam, very large aft stateroom with ensuite head and shower. Tanks and engine room are beneath the salon sole.
For those who appreciate light, views, and a protected inside helm, the salon/pilothouse will certainly delight. Large glass windows surround the pilothouse on three sides providing 270 degree visibility while seated in the dinette. The “U” shaped dinette is to port and measures 60” long and 31” wide. A white Corian fixed dinette table is trimmed with varnished teak. Storage bins are beneath the seats. To starboard a communications/navigation desk has a hinged top accessing a chart locker. VHF’s and SSB radios are located at this office/work station. A hinge-out stool with wood seat is fitted. The inside helm station is to starboard and forward. A sliding/dogged side deck access door is outboard. A bench seat and foot rest provide a great watch standing position. Engine room access is below the cabin sole thought hinged access hatches. Four overhead dome lights, two lights with sconces, and a reading light over the chart table illuminate the space at night. Venetian blinds are fitted to the side windows for dockside privacy.
Main Salon engine access: In addition to the lift up hinged engine and battery room daily use access hatches there is also a removable section of the salon floor. The table is unscrewed and moved to one side. The hatch is visible and can be lifted off by four lift rings. It is heavy for engine noise isolation. Once set securely aside stand up access is available completely around the engine and makes the port side of the engine space more accessible. There is a corresponding over head hatch, weather proofed, that allows complete engine removable with a single lift. Records show that the hatch was used to replace the engine in 2001.
The galley is located down three steps from the raised salon and to port. White Corian counters are fitted with fiddles. Two large stainless steel sinks are aft and fitted with a Delta single lever pull out spray faucet. Storage cabinets, including “keyhole” dish cabinets are below and above the sink. Outboard the gimbaled stove/oven is protected with a stainless steel crash bar. Pot/pan storage is below the stove. Forward, beneath the Corian counter are huge front opening fridge and freezer. Two opening side ports, an overhead hatch and abundant lights contribute to an excellent all weather galley.

The shower pan is fitted with a water tight inspection plate for access to the knot meter through hull fitting. A vanity with integral sink and mirror are forward and outboard. A shower curtain, mixer valves and hose nozzle are provided for handheld or standing showers. A vacuflush head is aft of the sink. A shaving mirror and louvered medicine cabinet are outboard of the sink. Dome light, sink task light, an opening side port, and solar powered overhead complete this space. A cabinet to starboard in the forward passageway houses the Bendix washing machine. Below this are two drawers and above is a wide shelf.
The forward stateroom features a large “V” berth measuring 6’ 3” long by 6’ 6” aft and 1’ 8” forward. A removable cushion and board infill the “V” for amorous crew/guests. Storage in this space is copious including: eleven drawers, storage bins below the berth, and a tall hanging locker to starboard aft. Two reading lights, a dome light, a Hela turbo fan, and overhead hatch and two opening side ports complete this stateroom.
For liveaboards, the “piece de resistance” is the aft master stateroom. Accessed to starboard of the cockpit companionway and down three steps is a short passageway. Storage lockers are outboard, below the deck edge in this passage. A locking door provides privacy to the stateroom. The centerline, forward facing island berth quickly catches one’s eye and measures 6’ 5” long by 4’ 10” wide. Curved dressing/reading seats are on either side of the berth. Long shelves run along the hull sides outboard. Swing arm reading lights with shades are fitted each side. An upholstered and padded headboard is secured to the aft bulkhead. Storage is impressive in a nice collection of open shelves, drawers, cabinets, and hanging lockers. Air conditioning, two cabin fans, six opening ports, and an overhead hatch provide climate control. In additional to the two reading lights, three overhead dome lights provide light. Along the forward bulkhead a small desk with mirrored cabinet and hinge out stool (uses same stool as nav desk) is on centerline. A tall locker with removable shelves is to port. To starboard and forward are two huge hanging lockers.
The ensuite aft head is forward to port and entered through a privacy door. Like the forward head, its constructed of molded fiberglass for ease of maintenance. A standing/sitting tub with seat is forward and outboard. Mixer valves and an adjustable shower bar with hose and nozzle allow for flexible showering/bathing. A vacuflush head is inboard and forward. A sink with storage below and an Oval mirror above is aft and outboard. Two opening hull side ports, a removable teak grate, towel bars, dome and task lights complete this space.
DECK & HULL:
FAIRWIND has a white painted hull with a dark blue boot stripe and light blue and dark blue sheer stripes. The bow has sufficient overhang and flare to stay dry and send spray sideways. The bottom is coated with light blue antifouling paint. A raised bulwark is capped with an extruded aluminum cap rail. A “T” track top and round rub rail side are profiled into the cap rail. The transom has a slight reverse with a molded in steps offset to port. The hull and deck are a sandwich built of epoxy soaked on-end balsa between two glass fiber layers. It is at least 1`" thick and exceedingly strong.
This Celestial 50 PH has secure side deck outboard of the cabin sides. Stainless steel double handrails and stanchions surround the entire deck for security. Netting for pets or small children is currently lashed to the railings and easily removed if desired. Decks and coach roof top have a molded-in diamond non-skid pattern. A butterfly, hinged hatch provides access to a tidy bow locker with secondary anchor rode and wash down pump. The hefty anchor windlass is on a raised platform rising up from the locker lids. An 18” high trunk cabin extends onto the foredeck from the 4’ tall pilothouse with aluminum framed glass windows is located amidships. Two steps up from the side deck a full beam raised aft deck extends to the transom. A large full beam storage locker is accessed through port quarter deck hatch.
The cockpit is on the aft deck with side entrances through the cockpit coamings adjacent the helm. Spacious, protected and with excellent visibility it functions well for sailing, motoring, or entertaining. Washboards will close these entrances in rough weather. Cockpit seats and sole are laid with teak and rubber. Storage lockers are located beneath the helm seat and side settees. Coamings are capped with varnished teak and stainless steel grab rails. The 4’ wide helm seat is aft and well situated behind the steering pedestal and instruments. The side settees are six feet long with 12” high seatbacks. An engine instrument panel is recess mounted in the aft end of the port settee and protected by a hinged acrylic cover. A centerline drop leaf table with teak grab rails measures 48” long by 42” wide and nicely dines six. Four drink holders are flush mounted in the table. Two overhead lights illuminate the cockpit table at night. Storage lockers are beneath the aft and side settees.
Ample room for cleaning gear, emergency tiller, spare anchors, sails, and other gear is found in the full beam stern locker with top opening hatch on the starboard quarter.
