Vessel Walk through

C'est la vie is a Euro Style Sedan Motoryacht with  decidedly North American flair. Her interior is graced with  natural cherry joinery with a high gloss finish. C'est la vie was custom built and has countless improvements found throughout the vessel.

Boarding C'est la vie is from either side of the swim platform and up the port or starboard side decks.

 C'est la vie has a comfortable Aft Deck with built in and loose seating, same level Salon with loose and built in furniture, a raised Galley and Dinette Area with the optional  Lower Station.

Below are three cabins with the forward VIP and Starboard double bed Guest Cabin sharing a portside Head and the Master on centerline with a private head and shower in two separate rooms.

The Engine Room is accessed via a hatch in the Aft Deck sole. The large Lazarette is easily accessed via a custom transom door from the swim platform and offers an abundance of storage.

The Flybridge Deck has easy access via comfortable stairs from the Aft Deck. The Bimini top  has a new four sided enclosure and the signature open air Sun Lounge ahead of the Helm create seating areas found only on the popular Neptunus 56/62 series of Sport Motoryachts. Further features of the Flybridge include a bar, BBQ grille, seating with a dining table and a crane of the Aft Bridge Deck for a scooter if so desired.


The Salon is entered via the curved sliding Trend stainless steel entry door. The carpeted sole (new 2013) and high gloss cherry contrasts nicely with the upholstered sofa (recovered 2013) to starboard. The sofa is L shaped and has storage below. It provides seating for four to five people and includes built in cherry end tables at both ends. (carpet is new, October 2016)

Custom ottomans with storage below lie in front. The forward end of the sofa terminates into a built in end table with two storage cabinet doors below.

To port starting aft are two full size upholstered barrel chairs separated by a cherry wood cabinet with two drawers and a burlwood top with a cane table lamp above.

Also in the Salon are full drapes and a sliding insect screen on the aft door, twin square columns with sconce lights, a decorative ceiling treatment over the ottomans, a Bose five channel speaker system with a hidden subwoofer, eight halogen mini spots on a dimmer and the digital AC controls.

The signature two level Salon windows are covered with lined drapes.
