Entering the yacht, you are greeted by a central living area with a beautiful blend of fine wood, custom upholstery and surfaces. The 2 facing settees are full length and the port settee pulls out to form a double bunk. Secured against a bulkhead-mounted bottle and glass rack, is a hinged dining table that lowers and extends easily to provide ample eating/entertaining space. There are numerous ports, hatches and dorade vents that provide plenty of light and ventilation for ultimate comfort. Storage is maximized throughout by positioning the tanks below the varnished teak and holly cabin sole, leaving large areas beneath the settees and bunks for easy access. Also, the location of the tanks improves the motion of the yacht underway and minimizes trim changes with varying tank levels.
The forward cabin is a spacious owner's suite, with a Pullman style berth on the port side. The starboard side is fitted with a cedar-lined hanging locker, several cedar-lined storage bins and a book shelf. Under the bunk, there is additional storage. Opening ports, large hatches and a dorade style vent add light and ventilation. Well placed reading lights add to a warm and inviting stateroom.
The head has a large wrap around counter top over a curved vanity and a Raritan toilet. A bulk-head mounted shower unit with pull around curtain, creates a large shower area with the electronic sump drain configured to work on either tank. Other amenities include a large vanity mirror and additional under deck storage cabinets.
As with the forward stateroom, the aft cabin has an inviting Pullman style berth. A smartly placed nav table is located at the forward end of this area. The table can either be stored in the down position or raised to a horizontal configuration for working. It easily accommodates chart packs that can be stored in the chart drawer and has a master electrical panel. This stateroom is rounded out with cedar-lined stowage bins and hanging locker plus an overhead hatch and opening port.
A large U-shaped galley features Formica countertops with teak fiddles, a 12-volt Nova Kool refrigeration w/ 12 volt icebox drain pump, Seaward 2-burner propane range w/ oven, double stainless steel sink, manual fresh water pump, abundant storage throughout.
