We will start in the cockpit and move forward.
The cockpit has ample deck box storage and the engine hatches open all the way up allowing one to stand in the engine room and have complete access to the engines. A custom davit off the transom allows for one to deploy the tender with ease. The davit can accommodate a small 11’ tender.
To port and up two steps we enter into the semi-enclosed bridge deck. There are 3 windows at the front windshield and one fixed window on the port and stbd side with new strataglass that encloses the aft end. On a nice day one can open the center windshield and roll up the strataglass to let the fresh air in. Access to the walkaround deck is a breeze with doors on both sides, as well as aft to the cockpit. There is a center-line helm and companion seat both to port and stbd. Additional seating for 5 or 6 persons is aft of the helm.
To stbd and down three steps is the salon. To port is a L-shaped settee with new upholstery, that can also act as an additional two sleeping berths. A hi/lo coffee table and free-standing chair can transform into a dining table for 5-6 guests. Moving forward and down one step is the galley that stretches the full beam of the boat and has all of the same comforts as home. Possibly the best attribute is the fact that the galley and salon provide “open concept” living and the large windows provide lots of light.
Moving forward and down one step is the guest stateroom with two twin berths and pull out storage drawers underneath. A large hanging locker to port and an ensuite head to stbd.
Heading aft through the galley and salon, then down three steps is a dayhead for guests.
Aft of that is the master stateroom that has two twin berths with four pullout drawers underneath. A hanging locker to stbd and a dresser to port. The private ensuite head is forward of the dresser to port with a shower stall, head, sink and ample storage. The two sleeping berths are adjoined by built in nightstands with dresser storage and stairs that exit to the cockpit above.
Laminate flooring throughout the interior. New mattresses and sheer white curtains over the port lights in the staterooms. Honeycomb blinds in the salon and galley.
The full width galley is located forward of the salon with household size appliances, ample counter space, and numerous pantries and storage lockers.
The master stateroom is aft of the salon and has two split twin berths on port and stbd side that is adjoined by his/her night stands with storage drawers and steps that lead out onto the cockpit. To port is the en suite head with a private shower stall, sink, toilet and ample storage. To stbd is a large hanging locker.
Fwd of the galley and down one step is the fwd guest stateroom. There are two twin berths with large storage drawers underneath, a hanging locker to port, and a en suite head to stbd with a private shower, sink, toilet and additional storage.
The two twin berths could easily be converted into a oversized queen using a drop in filler.
