Beautiful spacious three cabin layout. The interior and galley are perfectly suited for the vessel’s intended offshore use and liveaboard voyaging comfort.

Forward Cabin: Two berths, length 6′ 9″. Stowage room is available below the bunks, in lockers and drawers, consisting of one bureau with drawers and one hanging locker. The door between the fore cabin and the passage way can be water tight closed. The adjoining bulkheads are water tight to form a collision bulkhead. Under V berth storage has been compartmentalized for great storage.

Starboard Side Forward Cabin: On the starboard side is a two-berth cabin with a chest of drawers and a hanging locker. In the lower half drawers is a 16000 BTU Marine Air Systems reverse cycle HVAC system for air conditioning and heating for the main saloon and forward cabins.

Forward Head: On port side is toilet cabin with separate shower stall, a porcelain sink. Toilet is a Tecma electric flush with macerator. Teak grating covers a drained floor, which drains into its own shower sump.

Pilot berths with lee boards port and starboard outboard of settees with curtains. Stowage is available behind and below all settees and it is immense.  Headroom is 6′ 4″.

Galley: Secure galley is great in a seaway and equipped with all amenities. Loads of storage that is accessible and well organized. The galley location just to starboard of the companionway is ideal for an ocean going boat. Deep double sinks near the midline, propane stove and oven outboard, microwave securely built in, good refrigeration and excellent ventilation make this a perfect voyager’s galley. Stove and oven, galley counters are new in Feb 2010.

Navigation Station to Port: Located just to port of the companionway with a chart table with storage under, a book shelf. Port wall contains gauges for the water tank, upper and lower fuel tanks, voltage gauges 24 and 12 volts, current meters 12 and 24 volt meters, and Frigoboat Smart controller for the freezer system.

Cockpit: Probably the best all ocean cockpit you could ever want. Deep, safe, dry. The cockpit is a self-bailing, water tight cockpit. Sailing instruments are installed under the hard dodger forward of the companionway sliding hatch. The pedestal steering station has a stainless steel steering wheel with an Elk hide cover. A varnished cockpit table in teak is mounted and folds against the on the steering pedestal. Seats and floors covered with teak and the cockpit sole has a heavy teak grate.
