  • General: The interior of Nautor Swan is truly stunning with beautifully hand rubbed teak cabinetry throughout and a varnished teak and holly sole. The boat has a very workable interior with an expansive, uncluttered feeling yet properly laid out for all sea conditions. She is an exceptionally well-maintained vessel that can easily be sailed by two people.
  • Owners Stateroom: The owners stateroom is aft with a center line queen and lough chairs on both sides. An aft hatch leads to the aft cockpit. There is a large locker to port with excellent access. Ample storage in lockers and drawers. The stateroom can be entered via companion through the galley to port or an en-suite head to starboard.
  • Main Salon: In the center of the boat is the main salon with an L shaped settee to port around a teak table.  A center settee facing the table encloses the generator in a soundproofed box. To starboard is the entertainment center with extensive hand rubbed teak cabinetry. Aft of the entertainment center is the nav. station.
  • Guest staterooms: There are two guest staterooms forward of the main salon. One is port, the other to starboard. Both have a large bunk at seat level and a drop down bunk above. Both have ample storage in lockers and drawers and have access to the forward head.
  • Forepeak: Forepeak is currently used for storage but can sleep two crew members. It can be entered by the forward hatch or through the forward head.
