She features accommodations for six in three cabins, and has two heads with stall showers. Her American cherry interior is casually elegant, and is light and airy with numerous large windows and opening hatches. Her main deck features an open plan with 360 degree views from the salon, lower helm area and the centrally located galley. On deck, line handling is made easy with full walk-around side decks. The foredeck offers built in seating, and the aft deck features teak decking and is well suited for loose deck furniture. A transom door leads to two easy steps to the integral swim platform. A ladder from the aft deck (and comfortable stairs from the wheel house) lead to the flybridge. This area features built-in seating both in and out of the shade. The helm offers extensive electronics, two Stidd chairs, and room for full sized charts. Guest accommodations all have opening port holes and overhead and indirect lighting and reading lamps.
An L-Shaped built-in settee to port offers storage within and a comfortable viewing angle to the flat screen TV. In 2007 her sole was replaced with Teak and Holly. A side board with bar is positioned on a ¾ bulkhead on the forward end of the salon, which creates separation from the galley without isolating the cook. There is also a large flat screen Samsung TV and Sonos Soundbar.
Stairs from the pilothouse lead below to the common foyer, and to access to a full sized Maytag washer and dryer. The Master Stateroom aft offers a center-line queen sized bed and an en-suite head and stall shower to starboard. The entire port side of this cabin is lined with lockers and drawers that can accommodate the requirements of live-aboard owners.
Next forward and to port is a Guest Stateroom with under and over bunk beds. The Guest Stateroom is located in the bow, and offers a wide deck to headliner hanging locker, a large overhead hatch and an en-suite head with stall shower.
The VIP Stateroom is located in the bow, and offers a wide deck to headliner hanging locker, a large overhead hatch and an en-suite head with stall shower.
Continuing forward and up three steps and to port, the U-Shaped Galley with all of the modern conveniences includes opening windows. The galley is open forward to the Wheelhouse with banquette seating and table to port, and the helm amidships with Stidd Helm chair. A sliding door to starboard leads to the side deck, and adjacent stairs lead to the flybridge.
Hull and deck are constructed of molded fiberglass with core-cell foam with finished surfaced painted with Awlgrip or similar product. All fuel tanks are constructed integrally of fiberglass, and water tanks are aluminum. Topsides are light gray color with a black boot stripe, and the house and flybridge structures are white.
