Salon/Galley
The main salon consists of a large U-shaped bench seat with a varnished teak table with folding leafs, that has storage under the seats and table.  Located across from the galley and a custom TV/DVD enclosure, the salon is roomy and well lit with numerous stainless steel portholes, lighting and a large deck hatch.  The custom stereo system on deck also has two overhead speakers in the salon with a volume adjuster below.  The settees have custom seat cushions and pillows that are tied in to the bright and energetic décor that exists throughout the boat. The galley features spacious Corian countertops with elegant hand-rubbed teak cabinetry and significant built-in storage.  In the center of the galley on the port side is Princess 3-burner electric range and Sharp carousel convection/microwave oven that hides under a flip up Corian countertop.  There are two robust built-in refrigerators with spacious shelving and a separate top loading built-in freezer for extensive cold storage.  Morningstar comes ready for cruising with all the necessary appliances and utensils, such as Flavia Fusion Drink Station coffee maker (makes cappuccino, expresso and regular coffee/tea), blender, and toaster.  The galley features a double stainless steel sink with hot and cold faucets and two built-in cutting boards. There is additional storage under the cabin sole as well as the stairways with lift up steps.
Master Stateroom
The master cabin features an island queen berth with extensive lighting and storage on each side of the bed, which is lit by stainless steel portholes on both sides and a voluminous Lewmar plexiglas hatch.  On the starboard side is a cedar lined hanging locker and numerous storage drawers.  Above the closet is a second entertainment TV/DVD/VCR ensemble that is tied into the KVMH satellite system.  The main head has a large enclosed shower with a teak grate floor, spacious vacuum head and various storage compartments.  There is a full mirror opposite the queen berth as well as chart and other storage underneath.  The master cabin is decorated in hand-rubbed luxurious teak with stainless steel fixtures.
Guest Stateroom
In the center of Morningstar is the guest stateroom that is accessed via a sliding entryway door from the central passageway. The guest stateroom has a queen size berth in a fore and aft arrangement with storage above along the port hull side.  The guest stateroom has its own cedar-lined hanging closet, Lewmar plexiglass hatch and 3 portholes.  In addition, it has under berth storage, a nightstand and separate fan controls for the aft A/C system. On the starboard side of the central passageway is the guest enclosed head with molded sink and countertop, medicine storage cabinets above and below, a vacu-flush toilet, a stainless steel framed opening port hole, dorade based circulation and a teak grate covered shower pan with telescoping shower.
The Bridge and Cockpit
Words cannot describe the ease and comfort of piloting Morningstar, which can spin on her own axis and handles the roughest of seas.  The openness of this express allows the captain and crew to enjoy a truly pleasurable on-the-water experience that enclosed cabin models miss.  Yet, the hardtop and 270 degrees of windows protect the crew from the elements and provide unlimited visibility that other boats lack.  On top of the helm station are a pair of Lewmar Plexiglas opening hatches which combine with an electronic opening front window to provide plenty of cool breeze for the cockpit inhabitants. Under the seats there is a ditch bag with EPIRB (in addition to the one on the cabin top), MRE and standard offshore safety equipment.  Under the opposite seats are USCG life preservers, lights and whistles.  Morningstar also comes with a 6 man Viking life raft and numerous spare parts.  All of the owner’s manuals are on board in neatly organized 3 ring binders and the owner has kept meticulous maintenance records. The decks of the cockpit are protected by thigh high bulwarks. In the port and starboard forward corners are teak overlay steps to the side decks. Located to starboard is a set of teak steps to the cockpit seating area. Centerline is a lift up bench seat into the after part of the engine room. On the port side is an additional insulated ice box where the Eskimo 600 lb/day ice maker delivers ice.  There is an outboard motor bracket for a Yamaha 4-hp, 4-stroke outboard motor that comes with the 8 foot inflatable that is included with Morningstar. Flush in the deck are three hinged and gasketed hatches to the cockpit bilge, in which the spare parts, life raft, and fenders are stored. Starboard side aft is an opening bulwark door to the teak swim platform. Port side forward is a 50-amp 120/240-volt single phase shore power cord on a Glendinning electric shore cord reel. Starboard side forward is a pair of dockside telephone and CATV jacks. Bolted to the transom is an open gate teak swim platform on stainless steel brackets with a folding stainless steel swim ladder port side. Port side aft is a freshwater hot and cold shower station. A frigid rigid cooler with a padded seat top is included for additional seating and cold storage.  Because the hull is tunneled, MorningStar can access shallow waters that many boats her size miss. The cockpit seating area is protected overhead by a fiberglass hardtop with highly visible three-panel windshield forward and sliding windows port and starboard. The cockpit seating area has beautiful teak accents, handrails and deck that add an old-world traditional style to this modern classic.  Across from the helm station is a built in bar, with built-in storage, cutting table and glass holders.  A glass covered chart storage cabinet is above the counter for easy access and use.  The captain’s bench seat includes a series of three pull out drawers, whereas the crew’s bench seat has a new U-line icemaker underneath.  Both bench seats have extensive available storage, easily accessed by varnished framed doors. The main electrical panel is easily accessed next to the helm station where fuel, water and electrical gauges are well placed.
Steering System
MorningStar is exceptionally easy to steer from her gorgeous teak helm.  The steering system on board is Sea Star power assist steering with helm driven pump and PTO power assist pump off the starboard main engine. Cooler, reservoir, autopilot pump, and filter are all located in the engine room.
Engine /Mechanical Equipment
MorningStar is very fuel efficient for her vintage, with an average consumption rate of 40-45 gph at cruising speed of 22.5 knots.  This provides both attractive fuel economies and extended cruising range.  In addition,  the owner towed a 31 ft Contender to the Bahamas on numerous occasions, at 20 knots and 45 gph.  The engine room is accessed via a flush hatch on electric hydraulic ram lift and remote cable pull lock centerline on the helm deck. Diamond tread steps are provided. Additional access to the engine room is via a hinged seat on pneumatic ram assist and remote cable pull lock centerline forward from the cockpit. This space is partially insulated behind perforated vinyl and hard panels. It is fully painted and lit with AC fluorescent and DC overhead spotlighting. The decks are removable open teakdunnage. Ventilation is provided via a Delta T 9" 12-volt DC electric fan and hull side vents with Delta T grills.
