Boarding from the port forward gate one can go to the bow area where the windlass can be operated, sit on the bow bench, or proceed aft down either side to the stern on the now widened cat walks. Entering the port pilot house sliding door one can go forward and down into the bow lazaret storage or aft up the steps to the flybridge, or aft to port into the companionway to aft. Moving aft in the companionway port one first comes to the door into the master stateroom inboard. The master stateroom head is to stbd. aft off of the compartment with the shower outboard. The master stateroom has a vaulted step ceiling effect with windows in the aft end for extra light. Moving further aft down the companion is a decommissioned day head which can be recommissioned. The current owners did not have any use for it so it is just a little extra room. Continuing aft one enters the galley along the inboard side with storage outboard. Then is the salon area with the large sliding galss door to the aft deck at the back. There is an entertainment area on the forward wall with lots of cabinetry built in. Walking around the salon back to stbd. forward one enters a passage with the washer dryer leading into the guest stateroom with it's head forward of it. The head has a shower inboard. Continuing back into the salon and aft one can exit onto the large aft deck. The engines are under the aft deck in each hull. There is a ladder on the aft end of the cabin up to the upper deck which is very spacious. The aft end has a davit and is open where a tender could be stored. Then the forward portion and control deck area are covered. One can continue down the stairs to port thru the hatch back into the pilothouse. The generator compartment is under the galley sole in the port hull. The hulls contain tanks, pump, storage,and other equipment only. There are no accomodations below.
