Splendid natural light and ventilation with six opening ports and one large and two smaller opening hatches all except the large hatch with screens. Artificial light is equally well though out with swivel style reading lamps at the berths and settee and additional overhead lighting in working spaces.

Continuing aft is the Salon with U shaped settee which converts, when need arises, to a double berth. There is some storage under the settee and behind the seat backs and in lockers and shelves above as well as in another hanging locker forward of the settee. Dining is from a generous varnished teak table which acts as a filler piece when the settee is converted to a berth.
