The modest dimensions of this ship make it easy to handle. During the conversion to a yacht, the original character has been well preserved. There is a lot of space on deck so that it is possible to sail with a large group of people. The wheelhouse is equipped with all the necessary equipment and the other installations are sufficient to realise good comfort on board. A clever second steering position on the foredeck with throttle and autopilot controls means that you can also steer from outside on deck during lower voyages.
Layout: From front to back, first the large cabin, with seating area, galley and four berths. Then further aft are the tanks and behind them the engine room, where the powerful Scania diesel engine is placed with all equipment and electricity. Further aft is the wheelhouse, which has room for three people. Behind the wheelhouse is the toilet/wet room. This is only accessible from the outside.
