The Deerleap parades elegance from her fantailaft deck to the tip of her bow. Below the main deck, the master stateroom and guest cabins all have private heads with showers. The lower cabins are accessed aft by a spiral staircase that exemplifies the Roaring Twenties, when this beautiful boat was built. The sumptuous luxury of the main saloon, with exquisite mahogany joinery work and beveled-glass china closets, is an excellent example of the opulence of that era. When you board this beautiful vessel today, it is difficult to imagine that during World War II, her exterior brightwork and hull were painted gray and machine guns and cannon were mounted on her decks. Her graceful lines and contoured hull slip through the water with the stately posture and gentle roll of one of the West Coast's finest grande dames.
