This 2 Stateroom, two head layout is great for extended cruising or day trips alike. The decor is neutral and tasteful, accenting the luxurious hi-gloss American Cherry panelling found throughout the yacht.

The guest Stateroom to starboard with twin berths, a built-in night stand, a bookshelf, a generous hanging locker, its own head with manual sea toilet to holding tank, sink and shower.

The fully complimented Galley is mid-way down to port and is equipped with an Engel fridge/freezer, hot/cold SS sink, microwave oven, Corian counters, a two burner gas ENO hob and built in SMEV gas oven/grill, a flushed-in waste bin, and generous storage in the Cherry cabinetry and drawers.

The Saloon is equipped with a large leather L-shaped sofa to starboard with a hi-lo table allowing it to double as a dinette as well as a settee with coffee table this can also be used as an occasional double berth with pull out sofa bed. There is a glass and bottle rack hidden from view within the Cherry cabinetry aft to port. Also to port is an additional leather love seat/settee. Other amenities include luxurious carpeting, opening side windows, curtains and cushions. The lower helm station is complete with electronics, navigational aids, double helm seat in leather, engine controls and full instrumentation as detailed in the inventory.

The roomy flying bridge (comfortably seating 8) features full wrap-around seating aft with exterior seat cover set, screen cover and canopy. Large fiberglass table that drops down and includes a filler cushion to make it into a big sunning bed, a centre helm seat with matching passengers seats port and starboard, and a well laid-out helm dashboard (with cover), engine controls, navigational aids and full engine instrumentation. Out forward are SS bow rails for safety, bow sunning pads with drink holders and SS grab rails, an on-deck anchor locker, and an electric capstan Lofrans Clipper windlass with on-deck foot controls, a bow pulpit, an anchor roller, as well as a 25lb Delta anchor and chain.

Leading down to the cockpit from the bridge is a very easy to negotiate stairwell (opposed to a ladder) that also has a closing fiberglass lid to seal it off from the bridge (great safety feature with kids, elderly friends, and/or pets on-board). The stairwell is inlaid with teak decking as is the cockpit and generous integrated swim platform, all in great condition. Below the stairwell is a storage locker which also houses the emergency back-up manual bilge gulper pump for added safety. The cockpit features a wet bar, rear bench seat with storage, a cockpit hot/cold shower, as well as easy access through the lazarette directly to the engine room. There is a transom door leading out to the dive platform that is equipped with a hide-away dive ladder and a huge wet storage compartment.
