Kintala is entered through a custom dodger built in 2012. The companionway is a blue water companionway accessed only through the top sea hood. There are 7 stairs. Main engine access is under the companionway stairs.

To port as you enter is the U-shaped galley with 8.5 cu ft Norcold 120v/12v refrigerator on the aft bulkhead, Hillerange 3-burner propane stove with oven and broiler on the port hull. There are two large cupboards with caned ventilation panels on the port hull on either side of the stove as well as a large stainless sliding door cabinet directly behind the stove. Under the sliding door cabinet are two deep recesses suitable for storing plates or utensils. There is a deep pot and pan storage locker to the right of the stove and just to port of the double bowl sink. The sink has one wider but shallower bowl to port and one very deep bowl to centerline. Hot water is provided through a 6-gal hot water heater which is usable with AC power or through engine heating. Above the sink is a shelf with 7 glass holders as well as a narrow shelf. Behind the sink is a polished aluminum backsplash. There is a drop-leaf counter extension just to center of the sink area. There is a large spice rack and cupboard over the refrigerator as well as good-sized storage for cleaning supplies and a trash can under the sink. The galley is lit with two long LED strip lights. There are two GFI outlets in the galley. One is for the AC system when docked and the other is tied to the 1000 watt inverter.

To starboard of the galley is the nav station which is situated facing the starboard hull. The AC and DC electrical panels are placed on the aft bulkhead. There is a shelf above the nav station which houses the GX2150 VHF with AIS and the Garmin GPSMap 441. Below the shelf are 2 cupboards suitable for storage of binoculars, flashlights, etc. along with the Raymarine ST60 repeater instrument. The nav station is lit with a long dimmable LED strip light. There is a large storage compartment under a lifting table in which charts, guidebooks and logbooks can be stored. There are two drawers to the aft edge of the station and a storage cubby. The wet locker is just aft of the nav station and the nav seat is bench style with a lifting lid which accesses a large storage locker for bakeware.

Just aft of the nav station is the door accessing the aft cabin. The aft cabin has a double berth with 4-inch foam mattress in 2 pieces and a small hatch above and 2 portholes which open to the cockpit for ventilation. There is a deep storage cubby at the far foot of the berth and the battery box is at the midline of the berth. It contains a Dekka 8D AGM (2013) as well as a group 27 start battery. Under the head area of the berth is a large storage cubby and very deep cabinet. Amidships of the berth is a large shelf area above the cabinet which houses the refrigerator compressor. To starboard of that cabinet is a very large shelved cabinet which is currently used as the pantry. It will store several weeks of dry goods. On the starboard hull is a workshop which was built converting a single berth. It houses a large collection of parts and hardware boxes. There is a workbench with vise below that storage area and three large, heavy duty drawers beneath that which house heavy tools. There is a deep cubby aft which houses large tools in boxes such as drills and another sealed cubby which houses chemicals and cleaning supplies safely. Behind the cabin door is a hanging tool organizer.

Moving forward out of the aft cabin and past the galley/nav station area you enter the main salon. The salon has a single settee to starboard with 2 large storage lockers behind the back cushions. There are 2 storage cabinets above the settee with caned ventilation panels and shelving inside. Between those 2 cabinets are 2 deep bookshelves. Beneath the starboard settee is the 79-gal aluminum water tank. There is a long, dimmable LED strip light recessed above the settee. There is a large overhead hatch centerline.

 To port there is a single settee that pulls out to a wide single. Above the settee is a pilot berth area that was converted to shelving. Underneath the bottom shelf is a hidden storage area that was built to store long rolls of Sunbrella fabric. It is about 3 inches deep and the size of the original pilot berth. The top shelf is an electronic charging shelf with an 8 outlet power strip connected to a 1000 watt inverter. The shelf is large enough to house several computers, iPads, phones, rechargeable flashlights, etc. Behind the back cushions are 2 more very deep storage compartments. The inverter is in the forward compartment but only uses a small portion of that space. The remote control switch for the inverter is mounted on the forward bulkhead.  Beneath the port settee is the 64-gal fuel tank. In the bilge area there is a 2 large storage bins which will hold over a case of canned beverages. The water tank manifold is also situated in the salon bilge area. There is a long, dimmable LED strip light recessed above the port settee.

 The salon has a bulkhead dining table that can seat eight. It can be utilized with one leaf up and one locked down to seat 2 comfortably or the whole table can be set up and seat 3 on each settee and one on each end with additional folding chairs. The dining table is a custom-built mahogany table with cherry storage cabinet mounted on the wall. The storage cabinet has 3 shelves which are deep and can store place settings for eight at least including plates, bowls, glasses, wine glasses, napkins, and silverware. There are 2 LED eyeball lights above the table.

 Just forward of the starboard settee is a large closet. The closet currently has shelving but could be returned to its hanging closet status with minimal effort. The closet is 18 cu ft and holds a remarkable amount of things. The bottom shelf is heavy duty and currently stores a Sailrite sewing machine and vacuum cleaner. The closet door is louvered for ventilation. Below the closet door is a small cubby currently used to store extension cords. The top of the closet is a shelf with fiddle.

 Across from the closet is the large single head. The Lavac toilet is situated on the forward bulkhead facing aft. There is a teak medicine cabinet above it and teak handrails. On the port hull is the sink with storage cabinet below and large mirror sliding door cabinet above. To the left of the sink is a built-in seat with three storage cabinets above it. The top two are deep louvered cabinets suitable for storing a large amount of towels, etc. The lower cabinet is a tilt-out cabinet. The head has an oval shower curtain track in front of the seat. The shower curtain encloses that area completely, keeping the head area dry. There is a teak grate in the floor and the water is handled by an enclosed sump box with automatic switch in the salon bilge. Lighting is by LED fixture above the sink. There is a SCAD holding tank monitor panel on the port bulkhead. The switch for the overboard pump is located below the sink.

 Forward of the head/closet area is the V-berth. The berth is custom-sized for the original owner who was tall. It is King-sized across the aft edge and 2 feet across the foot edge. Just forward of the foot of the berth is the chain locker access door which is louvered. The mattress is a custom-made 4-inch firm foam on the bottom in 3 pieces, with a 3-inch memory foam topper (2018) on top. There is a large 24 x 24-inch hatch directly above the berth for ventilation as well as a dual-head fan. The door to the V- berth is louvered for ventilation. There is also an access door into the head from the V-berth. There is a dresser just to starboard of the entry which has a shelf on top, two drawers, and a storage cubby with louvered door. Along the aft bulkhead on the starboard side there is a hanging locker that was converted to shelving but could be returned to hanging locker status with minimal effort. There are also 2 shoe cubbies as well as a large storage area with shelf under the starboard berth area. There are 2 long shelves along each side of the V-berth. The 40-gal water tank is under the forward portion of the berth. The 24-gal holding tank is under the aft portion of the berth and the head pumps and Jabsco Y-Valve are easily accessed through an access panel on the port side. All plumbing was installed with lifetime no-odor hoses in2012.

A new headliner was installed in 2016 and the dark teak around the ports was refinished in white. This, along with the LED strip lighting, 13 opening ports, large hatches, and 6 prisms makes the boat pleasantly well lit during the day. The placement of recessed LED strip lighting in warm white makes it comfortably lit at night. The ports, hatches, and 4 dorades make for very good ventilation throughout the boat.

 The interior teak is oiled and waxed with Danish oil in red mahogany and Danish wax. The teak and holly floors were refinished in 2016.
