Entering the vessel from the swim platform stairs (port and starboard), you enter the large aft deck with teak decking.  There is a large centerline settee on the stern, which also houses the stowable table.  Moving forward to port and starboard, there are wide walkways leading around the pilothouse to the large, uncluttered foredeck, complete with sturdy stainless-steel railings and oversized sunpad.  There are also side gates for additional boarding options when berthed alongside.  Continuing back to the stern, the hardtop offers partial shade to the afterdeck, and an optional sunshade can provide full sun protection over the entire aft deck.  Moving forward from the settee, you enter the main salon through double sliding glass doors.

This yacht can be customized upon request, prior to commencing a new build.

Upon entering the main salon, there is seating for 2 to port with a pop-up television, and to starboard there is a comfortable oval-shaped dinette with seating for 3.  Forward of the main salon is the centerline helm, complete with full navigational electronics.  To starboard is a small seating area with table, and to port are the stairs leading down to the lower level.  The entire forward area of the salon is surrounded by a continuous wraparound windshield, and there is huge opening sunroof overhead to let in sun and fresh air.  The entire upper salon has teak flooring.

As you enter the galley from the port side, you will first notice how open and spacious the entire lower level feels.  The teak flooring from the upper salon continues throughout the common areas on the lower level as well.  To starboard is a large oval-shaped dinette with seating for 5, and to port is the galley, complete with large solid-surface counter tops and custom appliances, including dishwasher.  Moving aft from the lower salon, you step down to a companionway with a washer/dryer to starboard, and the entrance to the full beam master suite.

The master suite is entered through a forward door, which upon exiting leads back up to the lower salon.  The queen-sized island berth is located on a 45º in the port aft section of the stateroom, allowing for comfortable sleeping in any sea conditions, and maximizing the available space.  There is a large hanging closet to port in the forward portion of the stateroom, and the entire starboard side is dedicated to a split head and vanity arrangement, complete with two sinks, separate toilet and shower rooms, and abundant storage throughout.  There is a pop-up TV directly in line with the master berth.  The entire suite is carpeted, and can be upgraded to teak flooring.

The VIP stateroom is located forward of the lower salon, in the bow of the vessel.  It features a queen-sized island berth, two large hanging closets, and an overhead hatch with screen.  Aft of the VIP stateroom to starboard is a third stateroom with a single berth and small hanging closet.  Both guest rooms are finished with carpeted flooring, and can be upgraded to teak flooring if desired.  Across from the third stateroom on the port side is the second head, which has a separate stall shower.

All walking areas on the outside deck are fitted with natural teak.  The vessel is surrounded by stainless steel handrails, with two gates fitted amidships and two additional gates on the stern, leading to the swim platform.  There is a total of eight (8) stainless steel cleats fitted on the vessel.  The hardtop comes equipped with an arch for mounting navigation and communication electronics and a mast for navigation lights.  There are eight (8) opening ports on the hull sides, in addition to the forward hatch on the main deck and the large sunroof in the hardtop.

The vessel comes standard with a Raymarine navigation electronics package, including autopilot and Volvo IPS joystick piloting with digital engine gauges and controls.  An engine room camera is also fed into the Raymarine multifunction display.

The vessel will be equipped with a 110v/60Hz electrical system, including appropriate shore power connections, with standard US connections.  The minimum generator supplied with the vessel will be 12kw, with larger options available.  A 2000-watt inverter is standard.  The standard air conditioning will be 36000 BTU, and can be upgraded to meet the demands of warmer climates.  A TracVision 3 satellite antenna is standard, as is a complete DVD/CD entertainment system with LCD televisions.
