PIECE A CAKE is a four Stateroom with four Head layout with the Saloon, Dinette and Galley up on the main deck level, with an enclosed Pilothouse forward of that. The Staterooms have been customized to provide a private entry to the Master Stateroom directly from the Main Saloon, and a full beam VIP Stateroom forward of the engine rooms mid-ship, very similar to much newer Hatteras designs. The two Guest Staterooms (with bunk beds) are forward and are accessed via companionway steps to the right of the lower helm in the Pilothouse. The original dinette that was located at the foot of the companionway steps has been converted to a very usable office area.  The Flybridge is accessed via ladder from the Pilothouse, and has a huge U-shaped wraparound cushioned seating area. There’s also a barbeque grill up there, the Tender and its lifting crane, drop-in freezer, sink, lots of storage, two Helm seats and the Helm and instrumentation.  Overhead the entire Flybridge is covered with SS framework with a white Stamoid top.
