The upper salon features hard wood flooring throughout, full featured helm station with side-by-side seating & a smartly laid out galley behind. A U-shaped sofa is on the port side with a coffee table, and the whole salon opens to the sky with an electric sunroof in the hard top. A unique TV raises out of the salon cabinetry with a power swivel to enable viewing from the aft deck. Probably the most unique feature of this yacht is the stainless steel and glass salon door that disappears into the floor, with a touch of a button, to reveal an unobstructed indoor/outdoor entertainment option.

A convenient wet bar with refrigeration, Icemaker and grill are to starboard and there is a large sunbed centerline above the tender garage.
