The interior is accessed through a varnished, paneled door from the cockpit. This door is fitted with a venting window and insect screen. The interior joinery is paneled mahogany and finished with gloss varnish on the upper level and satin varnish on the lower level. The cabin sole is teak and holly. A removable rug now covers the salon sole. The overhead is painted high gloss white. To port is the elevated dinette. Four can comfortably sit and dine with excellent 360 degree visibility. Underway, the dinette forward seatback can be hinged aft allowing crew to sit facing forward for a total of five comfortable, raised, forward facing seats. The dinette table can be moved aft to the cockpit for alfresco dining or cocktails. The dinette seats measure 4’ wide. Top access bin storage is below the seats. Three storage drawers are below the dinette platform. Four compact florescent light fixtures are mounted on the overhead.
The galley is to starboard. A Force Ten two burner stove with oven and broiler is furthest aft. A varnished mahogany cover is fitted on the stove top when not in use. A white Corian sink measuring 10” by 12” by 6” is hung beneath a light green Corian counter with low fiddle edges. A single lever faucet provides hot and cold water. A built in refrigeration box is beneath the counter, just forward of the stove. A large storage locker is slightly forward of the fridge. Three sliding drawers are beneath the stove. A properly sized toe kick beneath these cabinets allows one to comfortably cook and clean.
To starboard and forward is the helm station. A two foot wide helm seat hinges up and out of the way for standing or folds down for seating. A wide footrest is mounted below the helm. The navigation electronics, controls and engine instrumentation are mounted in a burl wood-faced, arched console. The flat screen computer display slides out from a pocket behind the console. The electrical switch/breaker panel is concealed behind a hinged door inboard and below the navigation console.
The lower level is three steps down from the pilothouse/salon. To starboard, just forward of the electrical panel locker is a tall hanging locker. To port, behind a privacy door, is the head. A Vacflush marine head is aft and outboard. A vanity with Corian countertop is forward and fitted with a 10” round stainless steel sink and single lever Grohe faucet. A mirror with wood frame is above the sink on the forward bulkhead. Storage is beneath the sink and in a top opening bin outboard of the sink. An overhead light, opening cabin side port, overhead hatch, heater outlet, and 110V AC outlet are fitted in this space.
Forward, through a privacy door is the stateroom. A large “V” berth with removable infill measures 6’ 8” long by 2’ wide forward and 6’ 6” aft. The mattress is four inches thick and covered with light green yacht acrylic upholstery. The same upholstery covers four large throw pillows. Bin storage is below the berth. A wide bookshelf is forward, above the berth at deck level. Two smaller shelves are outboard and aft of the berth and fitted with top opening bins. The hull sides and frames are covered with Alaskan yellow cedar ceiling strips. Two reading lights are mounted on the aft bulkhead. An overhead hatch provides natural light and illumination.

DECK & HULL:
ADMIRAL PHORMIO’s hull is painted light green with black and white boot stripes. The bottom is coated with black antifouling paint. A spray rail is forward above the waterline. A varnished rub rail capped with stainless steel is at the deck edge. A lower rub rail with stainless cap starts well forward and transitions to the varnished teak swim platform in way of tumble home at the stern quarters. The combination of these stainless steel capped rails provides excellent “widest point” all around protection. The transom is kept bright to reveal the bookmarked African mahogany wood. Stainless steel sheathing protects the transom corners.
The deck is painted light beige with non-skid and waterways. A varnished toe rail surrounds the deck and is broken in way of the mooring cleat/chocks. An anchor locker with storage chocks for the anchor and space for the rode is recessed into the foredeck. This locker drains overboard. Cabin sides and top are white. Varnished handrails are fitted on the cabin top and forward coach roof. A varnished eyebrow trim piece is fitted along the coach roof deck edge and carried aft along the pilothouse sides to accentuate this line. The pilothouse is fitted with sliding Diamond Sea Glaze side ports for ventilation. The pilothouse top is well cambered. Generous overhang visors the forward fixed windows and protects the side and aft windows from rain. The pilothouse aft edge curves gracefully in profile flowing into tall cockpit coamings. This edge and coaming are capped with varnished teak.
ADMIRAL PHORMIO’s cockpit is well proportioned; balancing the interior and exterior spaces properly from a functional and aesthetic standpoint. With its sole located sufficiently above the waterline the cockpit is self-draining. Storage boxes forward and seats aft allow one to step down from the side deck into this well protected space. Varnished teak grab rails on the underside of the aft pilothouse top are well placed as handholds during cockpit entry/exit. The starboard forward step/locker serves as a propane locker. The port side step/locker is dedicated to storage. Further outboard and above these steps are “small stuff” storage bins behind varnished teak doors. The well-insulated engine box is centered in the cockpit and fitted with hinges and stainless steel gas lifting struts for easy opening. Hatches with quarter turn flush mounted latch handles and hinges are forward, aft, and outboard of the engine box. Access to systems and storage is through these gasketed and guttered hatches. Aft is the “U” shaped cockpit settee. The dinette table can be shifted to the cockpit using removable mounting pedestal. Access to the steering system, batteries, electrical gear, and storage is beneath the hinged seats. Additional systems and storage access is outboard of the cockpit seat backs through removable panels. Dark green Sunbrella-covered cockpit cushion backs tastefully make this a comfortable exterior lounging area. Teak and rubber is glued (no screws) to the cockpit sole, seats, steps, and engine box top.
