“Marie” is a classic “dual cabin” design with the master stateroom aft and the guest stateroom forward, separated by the raised main salon. Stepping aboard from either port or starboard amidships boarding gates, the wide non-skid side decks provide for easy passage around the entire circumference of the yacht which, including the 6’ cockpit, greatly facilitates line handling in all docking situations. The large air conditioned flybridge is accessed via a stairway adjacent to the companionway door leading to the main salon.

Entering the main salon from either that aft companionway door, or the starboard door adjacent to the lower helm station, to starboard is a large L-Shaped settee and hi-lo coffee table, with two occasional chairs. To port is the entertainment console with hide-away flat panel TV and associated tuners and stereo equipment.
