Entering from the cockpit through a hinged door the elegance of this yacht's interior is immediately evident. Hand-crafted cherry joinery is everywhere you look, and the cabin soles are teak and holly throughout. Large windows on all four sides not only make the salon bright and airy but provide excellent exterior visibility. The salon has an L-Shaped settee along the aft and port side. It also pulls out to convert to a double-berth if additional sleeping capacity is needed. In front of the settee is a nice hi-lo, drop-leaf table. Forward of the settee is a cabinet with storage while the large top is perfect for use as a chart table. In the salon's aft starboard corner is a comfortable chair. Forward of that is a large angled cabinet with a concealed wine cooler. Further forward is the starboard side helm station with helm seat. A sliding door leads from the helm station out to the starboard side deck. Going forward, down a few steps is the portside, U-Shaped fully equipped galley with 2 burner stove, double sink, microwave and plenty of storage. Forward of the galley is the head compartment complete with dual access doors, stall shower with seat and bi-fold plexi-glass door, vanity with sink, opening portlight, overhead hatch and a Quiet-Flush toilet. Opposite to starboard is the guest cabin with lounge that pulls out to sleep two plus flips up to sleep a third person, hanging locker, drawers, two opening ports, overhead hatch, and two French style doors that open this cabin nicely to the companionway and galley. All the way forward is the private owner's stateroom with centerline island double berth, direct access to the head, large cedar-lined hanging locker, storage compartments, drawers, two opening ports and an overhead hatch.

The main salon is surrounded by light and well ventilated with air from large windows. Beautiful hand-crafted interior joinery in American cherry and a Teak and Holly sole fill this space with tasteful elegance. This space was designed for entertaining and complete comfort.
