The design of the boat lends itself to privacy and comfort.    The beautiful teak and holly soles throughout show very little sign of wear.   The salon area is aft, leading from the cockpit.   Entering the salon, there is a wall mounted 40" Sony LCD flatscreen TV and full entertainment center to starboard and a U-shaped settee and table to port.     The table lowers to create a double berth .    Note ,the galley arrangement in 'Jenny' is the much preferred N46 layout which provides a much more open environment to the salon.   Next to the galley is the stairway leading down to the master amidships cabin located in the most sea worthy area of the hull .    This low midships master provides comfort and sfety in a seaway and is the preferred layout option for the N46.    The berth is a centerline queen on the port side.    There are two opening port lights above the berth, ample hanging lockers and drawers, and a desk facing aft.    To starboard is a private ensuite head and shower .  High attention to detail is visible throughout such as the brass Weems & Plath clocks, temperature, and barometers located in the master and salon.     The forward cabin is equally as comfortable as the master with a double berth, great storage, and two opening port lights.     The starboard full length settee can double as another berth .     Forward is another private ensuite head and separate shower with seat .     A washer/dryer combination unit serves the guest accommodations.    The well equipped pilothouse has a very large pilot berth and comfortable settee and table.
