Upon entering the salon the high level of finish is very evident. There is a well positioned wet hanging locker to starboard. The elegant interior is exceptionally well lit with natural light through the large deck salon windows. The space is bright and open yet retains the cozy charm of a classic yacht. Opening hatches provide great ventilation. The dinette table is hinged to allow it to be used as a cocktail table or fully opened for dining. Port side aft is the well appointed nav station. The linear galley is located on the port side with top loading ice box and fridge. The Eno stove with oven also has a removable counter top which can be used for larger food prep area. Forward and to port behind the settee is a very large pantry and more storage. There is more than ample storage onboard this boat.

The large aft cabin features a centreline queen size bed with walk around access from port or starboard. The aft head is very private and enters through the aft cabin on the starboard side. The head is large with a separate shower stall. Head is electric flush.

Forward cabin features a bright V-berth with private head and shower. Head is electric flush.


The boat is boarded by port and starboard gates, or through the transom. The transom gate lowers to access the life-raft locker and also provides a large landing area for boarding the boat. The swim ladder fits into the 2 stainless steel sockets on the swim platform. Stepping up and into the cockpit gives a nice secure feeling. The cockpit is large and great for entertaining. The cockpit table folds away to open up the cockpit when it is not in use. The dodger provides protection from the wind and water with full bimini and side panel enclosures. Moving forward, the wide side decks create safe passage all the way  through to the bow. The anchor locker is large with a storage bay aft and chain locker forward. The windlass controls are located above the windlass. Boat has 6 large mooring cleats.
