Forward is the chain locker and the sail locker accessed through the large forward head with a linen locker. Aft of the head is the office/guest cabin. Custom features include a desk with file drawers along with several lockers. Opposite to starboard is a settee with storage under and a pilot berth that opens to a large double berth. There is a tremendous amount of storage both behind and beneath the settee/berth on the starboard side

Moving aft is the beautiful salon with a large L-shaped settee and dining table to starboard. Seats from the nav station and desk can be removed easily from their bases and installed in bases at the dining table to easily seat six. On the port side is a straight settee plus cabinets, bookshelves, drawers, locker storage and under-settee storage. The salon is spacious with a lot of light from the large fixed windows and opening ports and hatches.

The galley is aft, to starboard. It is a spacious U-shaped galley with lots of counter space and storage.

The large sit down navigation station is opposite the galley to port. The nav station has a swing-out seat and large chart table. Just aft of the chart table is a dedicated workbench in the walkthrough to the aft cabin and is opposite the main engine access with its swing doors that can be lifted off their hinges.

The master stateroom is magnificent with a centerline queen-sized berth and a dressing seat on either side. There are two hanging lockers, large drawers, storage bins and bookshelves. Four opening ports and an overhead hatch provide great ventilation, and three fixed transom windows give you a room with a view! The en-suite head has a separate stall shower and sink and vanity.
