Master Cabin

The master cabin, located forward, is comfortable and well appointed. There is abundant light and ventilation with five opening ports including optional forward-facing port and a large hatch above the berth. All hatches have Ocean Air shade/screens. The center Island Queen berth was moved forward in the custom plan creating more floor space, giving this area a larger feel. Aft to port is a built-in four drawer bureau with a shelved cabinet below. To starboard is a similar arrangement with a large cedar-lined hanging locker.

Master Head The master head is located on the port side aft, en suite to the master cabin with Vacu-flush toilet, and vanity with Corian countertop and polished stainless sink with Grohe single lever faucet. The cross-cabin shower opens from the master, aft to starboard; and opens aft again into the guest head, starboard. This is a generous space with adjustable-height Grohe showerhead, a fully varnished teak shower grate and teak shower seat.

Guest Cabin

Down three steps from the main deck are guest accommodations. To port is the guest cabin with twin berths arranged athwartships and between the berths is a cedar-lined hanging locker with a teak, louvered door. There are 4 drawers under the forward berth and 3 under the aft. Cabin sole is teak and holly. Joiner work is finished in a high gloss varnish. Window treatments are beautifully done, the cabin is lit with overhead halogen lighting and reading lamps.  

Guest Head and shared shower is across the companionway from the guest cabin with a Vacu-flush toilet which doubles as a day head. 


The galley is located forward and to port side with Cameo White Corian countertops. The refrigerator is both front and top loading, freezer is top loading, both with SeaFrost refrigeration gear (new 2015). Doors are double gasketed. The Dual-fuel Seaward cooktop is concealed by a drop-down, stainless steel lined cover, including two electric and two propane burners, allowing food prep without generator. Below the cook top is a Sharp Carousel microwave oven. The sink is an under-mounted stainless steel unit with a Grohe fixture. Under the sink are three drawers and waste receptacle locker, and under the convection microwave is a deep drawer for pots and pans. Forward under the chart flat is dedicated storage for plates, cups, etc. Pantry storage is available in two teak, hanging cabinets above the refrigeration systems, and in the deep drawer under the adjacent helm seat.
