Aft is the spacious main salon with bulkhead mounted fold-up table. An L-shaped settee to starboard pulls out to make a double berth. Aft is a nice navigation station and instrument panel.

Sails and Rigging

The Cutter rig works well on a cruising boat by keeping your center of effort towards the center of the vessel and gives you a good combination of sail plans in various conditions.
All Sails can be raised and lowered or reefed from the cockpit for safety and ease.

The Standing rigging has been inspected and inspector said he did not think they are original, however we do not know when or if they were replaced.
