From the spacious cockpit forward, thru a sliding door is the entrance to the wheelhouse with a high sill, on the port side. The wheel and the instruments console is to port. A compass is fitted at the front of the wheel. Visibility from the helm is excellent with large widows all around, which open for great ventilation. There is a bench for two to starboard and behind this is the chart table, with ample provision for electronics on the bulkhead. A bunk lies beneath this bench.

The companionway is well provided with teak handles down into the main saloon. Here the expanses of teak paneling have been balanced by the use of antique brass hinges on doors and cupboards. There is a settee-berth to port which can convert into a double bunk. There is another bunk which can be pulled out from under the starboard settee, and there is another bunk over this. A waist-high partition separates the table from the galley, which is very pleasant to cook in. Facing this to starboard is the toilet, finished completely in white, with a sea WC, a stainless-steel basin and hot and cold water from the heater in the galley. With ventilation and full headroom this sealed compartment contains also a shower.

The saloon contains a great deal of storage space. The fresh water tanks are molded into the hull beneath the forward quarters and the saloon. Fuel tanks are located by the sides of the engine compartment.

The pleasantly forward cabin is fitted with two bunks, that can convert into a huge bed, shelves and lockers, a wardrobe and a stainless-steel basin.
