Opposite the galley is a large chart table/Navigation area. This is forward facing and situated at the end of a large pilkot berth.
One step down from here is the saloon. Large U-shaped seating area to starboard with dining table. This drops down to make a very comfortable double berth. Behind this is shelved storage currently used for sailing/navigation books.

The yacht was built by Croft marine Productions in partnership with Robert Tucker Designs. This was the brainchild of Tony Tucker, son of the famous Robert Tucker who brought us many designs but notably the Corribee, Silhouette and Newbridge Navigator.
Built in 4mm high tensile steel she has a round bilge hull shape, flush decks and a very comfortable cockpit with teak topped inner coamings and removable teak seating boards.
The underwater profile is a traditional full keel with shallow forefoot. The steel has been coated with layers of epoxy and finally copper coat. There is a steel grated bowsprit with built in double anchor rollers and a self bailing open anchor well forward. Around the decks is a 3 inch scupper with drainage. Solid teak rubrail set off from the hull for added protection. Topsides are currently painted in a smart navy blue whilst the decks are an attractive cream.
Stainless steel bow and stern rails joined by a series of stainless steel stanchions with double set of uncoated wires. There are numerous deck hatches which along with the coacroof saloon windows have all been removed and resealed. Teak handrails mounted either side of coachroof for safety.
