The interior is a skillful blending of traditional craftsmanship and materials, with contemporary space planning and interior design principles. The result is both beautiful and livable; all areas have good natural lighting and ventilation. All the cabin ports had the lenses replaced in 2016. All of the interior lighting is LED. The main cabin has large skylights overhead and the hull has fixed ports for added visibility. Overall, the interior layout is perfect for cruising or to use as a live-aboard.
Forward Guest Stateroom & Head
Located all the way forward, the spacious guest stateroom offers a comfortable V-berth with a bench with storage underneath to starboard and a large cabinet to port. Two opening hatches, port lights, reading lights and a 12V fan will ensure your guests feel at home. Just aft and to port is the guest head which has dual access from either the guest cabin or main salon. The head was refreshed in 2016 with a new toilet and vanity mirrors. There is good storage in the cupboards and under the sink.
Continuing aft, you enter the spacious, main cabin salon. The teak interior creates a warm, nautical ambiance. To port, there is a straight settee with shelving and storage cabinets outboard, followed by the comfortable, forward-facing navigation station. To starboard, there is an L-shaped settee with a nice sized dining table that comfortably seats four with an ottoman providing additional seating and storage. More storage space can be found in cabinets above and outboard of the dinette. Conveniently located just aft of the dining area is the large, efficient U-shaped galley. A discreet locker at the end of the galley peninsula serves as a liquor cabinet.

The engine is accessible from three sides: Under the companionway stairs, under the vanity and in the walk-through passageway to the aft master stateroom. The inboard side of the passageway offers good access to the engine. The electrical panels and control panel for the inverter are located just above the engine access doors. Additional storage cabinets line the outboard side of the passageway.
Aft Master Stateroom & Head
The master stateroom is located all the way aft. If the rest of the interior has not already won you over, this spacious retreat will seal the deal! This stateroom features a large centerline, “island” queen berth with custom memory-foam mattress with a nice headboard shelf and opening port light aft. There are two bench seats on either side of the bed with storage underneath. Other features include two cedar-lined hanging/shelved lockers, chest of drawers, two 12V fans, a vanity counter with a large wall mirror, seat and drawers plus a wash basin with mirror and more storage. A 22” Proscan TV (2016) is mounted on the bulkhead for easy viewing. Forward, to starboard, is the large private head with separate shower/tub stall, sink, mirror, teak grate floor and marine toilet (new toilet and mirror in 2016).
The large, U-shaped galley is conveniently located to starboard of the companionway and aft of the dining area. This allows the chef to interact with guests in the main cabin as well as to easily pass food up to the crew in the cockpit. It is a very functional and well-designed space that provides a pleasant and secure work environment for the cook both underway or at anchor. This well-equipped galley serves as the “heart” of the cruising boat with her great counter space, natural light, plenty of storage and nice appliances!
