Owner's cabin is aft with Queen berth to port and settee to starboard. Next forward to port is the fully enclosed head with electric flush toilet, shower, pressure hot and cold water, and ample storage. Across to starboard is hanging locker area. Continuing forward through the passageway is the Nav station with a large chart table, plenty of storage for books, instruments, and space for electronics.
