Cabin:  “U” shaped bench seating around large removable table. Seating converts to a double berth located forward of the galley, which is laid out on both sides.  On the  starboard side  is a good sized work top. The CD/radio and Eberspacher ducted air heating controls are above worktop. Underneath is a food storage cupboard and fridge. Opposite is the rest of the galley area with sink and mixer tap, 3 hob Calor gas burner with grill and oven beneath. There are two storage cupboards above the sink, for mugs, cups and glasses, with a drawer under oven for cutlery and similar items.

Aft of the galley is a door to the fixed double berth ingeniously designed (by the naval architect of the Capriole) to lie across the boat . The berth space has an (internal) hinged window for some natural light, a small seat and hanging cupboard.

Another door, on the starboard side accesses the heads, with a small sink, extending mixer/shower tap, small cupboard beneath and manual Jabsco toilet flushing to holding tank.

Up 3 small steps from the cabin area is an exceptionally spacious open cockpit area with helm and the full range of instruments and boat controls, on the starboard side. Large, adjustable, bucket helm seat with storage beneath for lifejackets. Opposite the helm seat is an “L” shaped  bench  seat for 2/3 people. Behind the helm, down a small step, is a wet bar with sink, fridge, small cupboard alongside and bottle/drink holders. At the stern end of the cockpit is long “U” shaped bench seat seating 5/6. There are a removable table and  a concealed slide out seat section  converting to an occasional berth. Transom door to large external rear platform affording easy access ashore.
