to augment the standard bow thruster, and a US
Watermaker, like the one they had on the AT 34. They
also specified, and are very pleased with, an optional
custom entertainment package with two Fusion stereos,
Sirius XM satellite radio, and two televisions. In the
saloon, the TV stores flush with the cabin top over the
galley, but pulls down when they’re ready to use it. They
found this installation less intrusive, and not as expensive
or as locker-space-consuming as a TV on a lift.
“We went with all LED lighting, and it’s just been
great on our battery consumption, so now we can
read after dark rather than retiring when night falls to
help save power,” the Duncans said. “We found that
we didn’t have to run the genset nearly as often as
we did when we had traditional lighting. We chose
hydronic heat and a propane stove, but passed on the
air conditioning that is standard on the boats made
for owners on the East Coast. We also opted to put
an extra freezer in the galley, a Nova Kool, mounted
under the counter, adding capacity to the standard
refrigerator/freezer so that we could stay out longer.
We lost some drawer space, to be sure.”
Like every Lynn Senour design, the AT 395 hull
features a deep, full-length keel that starts very far
forward, just below where the stem begins to turn
aft. Tomco uses a split mold, which is necessary
because of the planking lines in the topsides and some
Above: The clean foredeck design has a molded locker for
dockline and fender stowage just ahead of the deckhouse.
Right: The aft deck is well protected by the cabin top
overhang, which includes a weatherproof hatch overhead.
The Duncans also asked the builders to install
external railings from the stem to the stern along
both sides, making moving fore and aft feel that
much more secure. Tomco also put an opening gate
in the railing serving the starboard pilothouse door,
making it easier to use the higher fixed docks often
found when cruising the Pacific Northwest.
“The extra length of the AT 395 has increased
our stowage, particularly in the bilge forward,” the
Duncans said. “The second stateroom is available
in a number of configurations, and that’s the beauty
of working with the folks at Tomco—they will
customize that area to suit your specific needs—
additional accommodations, mobile office, more
stowage, a washer/dryer, or an extra freezer.”
Additionally, the single head serving the
accommodations has a freshwater vacuum head
system, a separate shower compartment, and a
myriad of drawers.
The Duncans opted for an optional stern thruster
tumblehome in the shape of the hull. It is solidly bolted
together prior to lamination.
