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.
