RHINO’s layout features three staterooms and two and a half baths. The spacious Master Stateroom is aft with its private entry from the cockpit and has lower twin berths, dresser, hanging locker and en suite head with shower.

There are breaks in the aft railing, port and starboard, where you can board by stepping on the seat or the covering boards. Moving from the cockpit to the aft bridge deck one finds a spacious area great for custom seating. The Helm is forward to port and from the door starboard and four steps down, the Salon is amidships. An L-shaped sofa is to port with a custom hi/low table. Two occasional chairs with lamp and table between are starboard. Aft of the sofa is the entertainment center with built-in 60” Samsung Smart HDTV and audio/visual equipment. Large windows port, forward and starboard provide an almost panoramic view.

Moving forward and down a few steps, to port is the Port Guest Stateroom with upper and lower bunks. The Port Guest Head is located across the companionway.

Further forward to port is the Galley that has been completely updated with stainless steel appliances and fully restored Rybovich cabinetry and joinery. Opposite, starboard is a traditional dinette and chart-inlaid table.

The Forward Guest Stateroom for either guests or crew has upper and lower bunks, hanging locker and head compartment opposite.
