Enter the aft deck from either the port or starboard side.  The aft deck coaming is covered by maroon Sunbrella fabric. Up a few steps is the bridge deck with a center helm seat and port and starboard crew seating.  There is a small cooler settee aft for guests.   The helm offers excellent visibility and all engine controls and gauges are within easy reach.

The side decks are narrow but offer stainless steel hand rails.  The bow deck features an inflatable and dingy davit.  Aft is the swim platform with a folding swim ladder and a ladder from the platform to the aft deck.


Down a few steps on the starboard side you enter the main cabin.  You immediately notice the beautiful oak cabinetry and trim.  Along the port side of the salon is a large L-Shaped settee and coffee table and forward is the breakfast bar with a cabinet and stainless-steel ice maker. Along the starboard side is a long storage area with multiple cabinets and two folding director chairs. Forward is the entertainment area with a flat screen TV in the cabinet.  The electrical panels are just outboard of the entry steps.  Centered and aft is entry into the master cabin.  The berth is a queen center-line berth with ample storage cabinets and drawers on both the port and starboard sides.  A small settee is along the starboard side aft and the private head is forward.  The head is large with vanity, electric toilet and separate shower stall.  The entry door is a bi-fold, louvered door.

Back to the main cabin and down a few steps is the galley area.  To port is the large galley with Formica counter tops and a huge amount of storage and food preparation space.  Ample galley appliances make preparing meals a breeze.  Across from the galley is the convertible U-Shaped dinette with seating for six.


Further forward is access into the forward head which is shared with the guest stateroom and a starboard side storage locker.  The head features an electric toilet, vanity and sink with cabinet storage and a separate shower stall.  The guest stateroom is all the way forward with a V-berth, storage shelfs outboard and plenty of drawer and cabinet spaces for storage.

Located down along the port side, the galley offers excellent food preparation and storage spaces that will please even the most discriminating onboard chef.
