There is a large molded-in dive platform accessed via walk-through transom door, a stainless steel ladder leading up to the flybridge/boat deck, and steps leading forward on both sides to the wide side-decks.  An opening hatch, leading to a stairwell, allows access to the stand-up engine room, and aft is a separate hatch for the huge lazarette. Double doors lead forward to the salon, and forward and up three steps is the "country style" galley with dinette, and the pilothouse controls.

Flybridge: The Bridge features a full helm station beneath a large Bimini top (new in 2020),  two pedestal mounted helm chairs and two L-shaped settees with seating for eight.  Aft of the settees is the boat deck with low profile crane.

There are large windows with blinds, fitted vinyl headliners with flush-mounted halogen lighting. The double doors open aft, and visibility forward is excellent creating an nearly unobstructed flow from transom to pilothouse.

Galley: The galley is opposite the dinette and on the same level as the pilothouse.
