The master stateroom is a big beautiful aft cabin featuring a unique island berth, athwartship and an ensuite head and large stall shower. The aft cabin is well ventilated with a large overhead hatch, dorades, and a number of opening ports. There is plenty of storage with a large hanging locker, armchair, cabinets and drawers. The rather incredibly large lazarette can be accessed through a door as well as from topsides. This storage area is so large that bicycles and all manner of water toys and safety equipment fit nicely.


The forward cabins include the spacious V-berth cabin with the head and stall shower  just aft to port and the third cabin to starboard which is configured as a workshop and more incredible and accessible storage.


The salon is amazingly light and bright and spacious because of the raised deck s with its large window. The main salon is probably the most spacious of any vessel afloat. With nicely curved settees port and starboard and and bulkhead mounted table. The starboard settee also makes a big comfy double berth if you run out of bedrooms for your guests.
