Scott Free is a sparkling example of this Cutter -rigged motorsailer. Her S& S pedigree speaks to her sea manners. She exhibits all the tell-tails of a quality-built Finnish boat in her fit and finish masterfully executed by the Siltala Yard. Her teak decks are in great shape and consistent with her overall condition. She has 3 private staterooms including the owner's cabin aft with a
large centerline queen.
The Nauticat 43' with 13'10" of beam is substantially larger, with respect to volume below deck than the Nauticat 44'. Her guest cabin aft still leaves plenty of room for a generous owner's stateroom.

Scott Free has the popular 3 stateroom arrangement which provides for a large centerline queen-sized berth in the aft cabin and an upper and a guest cabin with an upper and lower berth forward and to port of the aft cabin. The pilothouse offers tremendous all around eye level (seated or standing) visibility which is unique among motorsailers (from both stations). There is a large u shaped settee embracing a teak table which seats 6-8. The large L-shaped galley is down 2 steps and opposite a converting dinette.
Forward is a v-berthed forward cabin w/ its own head aft and to port.
The teak is satin finished throughout the interior; the cabin soles are satin finished teak and holly. There are curtains for all portlights and pilothouse windows (new in pilothouse). All portlights in the aft cabins are opening except for those looking aft (6 opening)
Additionally for ventilation there are plenty of hatches and dorades; 2 aluminum framed side windows in the pilothouse are opening as well as 2 overhead hatches and, of course, the companionway.
All new seat and berth cushions and
The galley is L-shaped with beige formica countertops and plenty of lockers. The arrangement between the galley and the pilothouse is different from most 43s
in that the forward return of the u-shaped settee in the pilothouse has no back rest; this allows for more natural light in the galley and a clear visual path between the two spaces.
