Throughout Opto-Mystic

Opto-Mystic is the traditional Tri-Cabin layout, with aft master cabin, forward guest accommodations, and spacious salon and galley in between. This design ticks all the boxes for liveability and cruising comfort. 

The master cabin has a private companionway leading from the aft deck, opening windows, and skylight that provide ventilation and plenty of natural light.  Double berth on port side and on the starboard side a desk / vanity with drawer and locker storage. The ensuite has a sink, molded vanity, head, and a seperate shower stall. There is a walk in hanging locker adjacent to the companionway leading up to the salon.

The living space in the salon is very inviting; bright, open and airy, large windows and clear visibility abound.  Starboard side is the L-shaped settee with dinning table and bar cabinet.  The fully equipped linear galley is portside and the lower helm station with navigation equipment and engine instrumentation is opposite. 

Down a few steps is the forward guest accommodation, a double v-berth, drawer and hanging locker storage.  There is also a separate ensuite with head, shower, and hand basin.

Exiting the salon from doors on either side gives access to the full walk around decks, the foredeck storage, aft cockpit with lazarette, and transom access to teak swim platform.   There are stairs to the canvas enclosed flybridge with the upper helm station, fore and aft seating and large deck.
