Below her cockpit is a huge lazarette which provides a mammoth amount of space to store cruising equipment, and houses the boat's Watermaker and laundry being a separate clothes washer and clothes dryer. Access to the engine room is via the lazarette and houses her upgraded twin John Deere engines and Onan generator, in what is a stand up engine room space.

Opposite to starboard is an L-shaped lounge with a hi/lo expandable table arrangement for transforming her coffee table into a dining table for when its appropriate to eat indoors.
