As you descend down the companionway from the cockpit area the first thing that you will notice is that the steps down to the cabin sole are quite large and gradual. This is a departure from many boats that have a steep entry into the cabin. Off to starboard is the galley that is equipped with a single stainless sink, H/C pressure water, salt water rinse, updated Force 10 LPG 3 burner stove w/ oven and updated microwave oven. To port is a large quarter cabin which contains a pullman style berth and private head with shower. Moving forward is the large main salon. To starboard are two swivel style club chairs and custom cabinetry work that provides ample storage space far and above the standard configuration provided by the manufacturer. To port is a large U-shaped settee with a center mounted table. Outboard of the settee there is storage as well as access to both the air conditioning unit as well as the spectra water maker. Moving forward along the port side is another head and shower combo. Just outside of the entry to the head is a custom storage cabinet. Moving past the head, the forward stateroom is equipped with a pullman style berth to port and storage located to starboard.
