Vessel Walkthrough
Boarding from the generous swim platform, there is a transom door to port which leads to the expansive main deck all done in non-skid.  There is plenty of seating which includes a bench seat aft, and a wrap around dining area with table forward and to starboard.  Forward of the aft bench seat is an electrically opening cushioned storage lazarette which also converts to a sunbed electrically.  Additionally, the cockpit sole lifts electrically to access the engine room. To port is an ample wet bar with icemaker, small sink and cockpit AC temp control. Forward and to starboard is the well appointed and arranged helm with double electrically adjustable helm seat. Cockpit area is totally climate controlled.  Left of the helm is the weatherproof hatch and stairway to the salon 3 steps down.  Here begins the surprisingly spacious two stateroom layout with two heads. .The master stateroom is forward and is accessed through a private bulkhead with door. This stateroom features a queen size berth, cedar lined hanging locker, dresser and entertainment center.  To port is a private master ensuite head with stall shower. Moving aft there is a fully equipped galley to starboard with Corian countertop, microwave, stove, sink, refrigerator and freezer.  All cabinetry as well as wood accents are done in a rich cherry wood. Opposite the galley is an L-shaped settee with seating for 4 and a table(removable) for dining.  The sofa is covered in a neutral ultra-leather with a cherry trimmed mirror above.  Lower level sole throughout is done in teak and holly (newly refinished).  Aft and to starboard there is a day/ guest-head.  Aft and also to starboard is a mid-ship double berth private cabin aft for guests or family.
