Newport, Rhode Island, United States
"Pretti Rose may be built on a commercial hull and enjoy the performance benefits inherent to her Downeast design, but her interior is entirely yacht-like. Her Herreshoff styling, with white paint and dark wood, makes the space feel bright and modern, while traditional touches—like the vintage ship’s wheel from Rosebank Ironworks Edinburgh—suit her classic lines.
Newport Yacht Builders made some interesting and practical layout choices. The cockpit is entirely empty aside from an aft bench seat and a small sunpad near the pilothouse. This created enough space to install slides in the deck, so the aft bench can roll forward to open the transom, and the sunpad can roll aft for engine room access. The generator and single 1,550-hp diesel MAN V-12 engine with V-drive transmission are both located beneath the cockpit for sound mitigation in the pilothouse, which is where the modern styling truly creeps in.
While Pretti Rose’s clean cockpit design resembles her workhorse ancestry, the pilothouse is designed for entertaining and livability. With the boat’s impressive beam of 17 feet, 4 inches, there is ample space for a convenient and social galley-up design, with generous counter space, large appliances and a deep double sink. Next to the galley is an L-shaped lounge with dinette, positioned directly behind the helm station.
In the cabin, the master stateroom resides in the bow, and a smaller stateroom with two twin berths is to port. The head is roomy, with easy access to the boat’s systems through the shower. There is also a second head, which is accessed through the cockpit and leads into the third stateroom, which could be used as captain’s quarters.
Perhaps the most practical features on Pretti Rose are her bow and stern thrusters, two additions for which I felt appreciative as Dana maneuvered the boat away from the dock, rotating her 180 degrees with very slim clearance between her and her neighbor, Consolidated. We settled into the cockpit for an early November cruise around the harbor, where Pretti Rose feels perfectly comfortable cruising at 20 knots, with a 23-knot top end." ~ Carly Sisson for Soundings

The fuel system piping allows any of the two fuel tanks to supply fuel to the main engine and generator and return to any tank. Each tank has a dedicated fill on the side deck and vent on the topsides. The fuel filters and lines are sized for a max flow of 160 gph for the main engine.
The head system consists of a holding tank, two electric heads, a deck pump out deck plate and a macerator overboard discharge pump. Each head is plumbed to a Y-valve that leads to either the holding tank or directly overboard. The holding tank is either pumped out via a deck plate or pumped overboard with a macerator pump.
The sinks drain directly overboard to a thru hull located in the boot stripe. The forward shower and washer/dryer drain directly to a 90 gal integral FRP grey water tank and pumped overboard with a dedicated pump. The aft wet head shower in the day head will drain into a dedicated sump and pump.
A dedicated oil change pump is plumbed to the main engine, transmission, and generator for dirty oil extraction. The pump has a flexible discharge line that empties into portable container.
