The galley in the corner has a two-burner flush-top electric stove and a small refrigerator/freezer underneath. With a removable lid, the stainless-steel sink is inset under the countertop, and a convection microwave is built into the cabinet above the stove. Drawers and storage lockers are underneath the spacious and ample counter.

The companionway is offset slightly to port, providing extra room for the guest cabin, equipped with a pull-out settee that forms a double berth. The master stateroom has a double island berth with lots of storage underneath, lockers above and soft headliner panels. There's a cedar-lined hanging locker with a louvered door to starboard and a three-drawer bureau to port. The master stateroom also has direct access to the head with a separate shower stall, and the teak-and-holly sole throughout adds a particularly nice feel to the interior.
