Among Passing Cloud’s many appealing features are her three private staterooms, gorgeous main salon, and classic West Coast-style wheelhouse.
Passing Cloud’s interior exudes warmth, character, and maritime heritage. Her classic West Coast-style wheelhouse is one of her finest features. At the helm, polished brass and brightwork abound, and her traditional galley and settee provide the perfect combination of comfort and visibility for luxury wildlife viewing.
Guest accommodation is in three private staterooms. Each stateroom has two spacious single berths complete with fluffy duvets; a private vanity with sink, mirror, and hot and cold running water; a skylight or deck prism; brass reading lamps; and drawers and a hanging locker for personal effects. The spacious head and shower are accessed from the main salon.
Passing Cloud’s main salon is her centrepiece below deck. Robust yellow-cedar deck beams support a massive skylight that suffuses natural light into the ship’s salon and illuminates her varnished old-growth Douglas fir cabin sole. Two large settees provide spacious seating for reading or socializing around her luxurious dining table. The surrounding shelves are home to an extensive cultural, natural history, marine science, and maritime library. Finally, a cast-iron, oil-burning heater radiates an embracing warmth throughout the entire vessel.
