Vessel Walkthrough

Starting forward in the master statement we find a centerline double berth queen-sized mattress with a cushioned seat aft and to port followed by a large hanging locker. There are two drawers under the berth and storage under the seat cushions. On the starboard and port sides there are cabinets with shelves on top followed by the ensuite head and shower unit including a mirrored medicine chest and wall mounted full length mirror.

Aft, on the starboard side of the main salon we find a C-shaped settee around the dining table with a cushioned loveseat on the centerline making comfortable seating for 8 people. There is cabinet and shelf storage above the settee and outboard. There is plenty of additional storage under and behind the settee seats.

The aft facing nav station uses the end of the 7-foot port side settee and has a large chart table as well as chart storage. Forward of the settee, is a very large storage cabinet.

Starboard and aft of the dining table, is the galley with counter surface most forward, followed by the 3-burner stove with oven/broiler, next, double stainless steel sinks and then the top-opening freezer, front-opening refrigeration unit. There is plentiful storage below the work surfaces as well as above and outboard.

At the base of the companionway on the port side is the aft head and shower stall which includes a mirrored medicine cabinet with a full length wall mounted mirror. Aft of the head is an aft cabin to port and one to starboard, including a double berth with storage and shelves outboard. The wood paneling throughout is a beautiful cherry while the cabin sole is teak and holly. There are ample hatches and side ports providing plentiful natural light and good ventilation. The general feeling of the interior is one of spaciousness and elegance. Lots of storage areas have been added that are also removable if not needed.
