The aft deck is huge. It is easily entered from dockside by either the port or starboard boarding entries and stairs on either side leading to the swim platform. The entry’s all have doors for security especially when underway. There is a double door entry to the salon, which can be used as a single entry for daily use or opened entirely for a grand entry. The setting is quite simply delightful and very comfortable, ideal for relaxing, alfresco dining, and just enjoying the environment.
The deck is well sheltered; the boat deck extends aft covering the aft settee. Centerline is a double pedestal granite topped table that easily seats six. Aft are a built-in settee and 4 folding chairs which provide additional seating. Forward is the built-in bar which includes a sink, U-Line fridge with ice maker and several storage drawers.

The salon is a wonderfully comfortable environment with soft upholstered chairs, a sofa and a generous amount of space, much more than you might expect for a yacht of this size. The 3 windows on either side are surrounded by shadow box cabinetry and the silhouette shades are egg shell in color. The side windows are accented with upholstered valances, in shades of light blue and tan. Aft are 3 large windows, one is center and there are windows in the two aft doors. The salon is very bright, open and exudes a sense of traditional elegance. The cabinetry is light with dark accents of honey colored satin finished cherry. The air-conditioning ducts are positioned around the ceiling edge, they are essentially hidden and allow air to cascades evenly throughout the salon.
Tastefully furnished, the colors are subtle. The furnishings include, on the starboard side 2 upholstered swivel chairs principally light blue in color with a pattern of beige and a hint of burnt orange separated by a circular glass topped table. Aft to starboard is a built in end table with storage. On the port side aft is an upholstered overstuffed chair and along the port side is a matching L shaped sofa, both are upholstered in light gold fabric. An oval glass topped coffee table supported by a cast bronze octopus sits in front of the sofa. A large granite topped end table with storage is built into the aft port corner. The granite is slightly off white in color with subtle beige accents. Forward to starboard is the stair leading to the lower deck owner suite as well as the interior engine room entry. The cherry wood hand rail is carved in a subtle bamboo pattern and a curved hand rail follows the stairs below. It is worth noting that the stairs throughout the yacht are comfortable both in terms of height and width, affording very easy access.
Aft deck entry doors are offset slightly to starboard. The twin doors provide a flexible passage allowing the use of a single door for daily use and when desired opening both doors provides a rather grand entry. With both doors open, the salon and aft deck effectively become one room. Phantom hide away screens on either side of the doors afford natural ventilation when desired.
Forward is a built-in entertainment center, the cherry cabinetry houses the television, stereo, surround sound as well as providing abundant storage both above and below the cabinet top. The cabinetry on either side is accented with elegant glass front doors and overhead there are additional storage cabinets. This is ideal storage for glassware, serving pieces, games, movies, and whatever.
Entertainment equipment: Flat screen 42’ HD television, Onkyo receiver, Sony DVD and VHS tape player, Direct TV receiver.
Located just forward of the salon, on the port side it is exceptionally spacious.

Opposite the galley, on the starboard side is a very large walk-in pantry. The interior is ‘U’ shaped and the fiddled shelving affords easy access and safe storage.
