Houdini has a three-stateroom/three-head layout which includes an owner's suite and guest suite amidships with crew's quarters in the bow. Heads are finished with teak and holly flooring.  Traditional varnished teak is used on all bulkheads, cabinets, rails and drawers. Instead of the traditional dinette, the boat's owner opted for an office suite that includes two large file drawers and a desk housing a computer and fax machine (both of which are routed to the boat's landline, cellular and satellite phone systems). A bookshelf, large chairs, bar stools and large granite bar, complete with the traditional brass kick bar, contribute to the antique look while the 42’’ plasma TV, remote-control high/low table and pneumatic pop-up sofa bring a modern edge. New Carpet Throughout Vessel
Two luxurious, thick leather sofas are found to port, each with enough stowage below for a custom Teak table with marble top and remote controlled hydraulic system that raises/lowers the table for the perfect height for dining or entertaining.

Directly forward are two matching designer leather recliners with a marble top end table, with drawer stowage. Furthest forward is the entertainment featuring a 42" TV hardwired to two separate DSS boxes. The audio end features DVD Player, a SONY 200 disk mega stowage Player, a VCR and a Yamaha Receiver with built in Surround Sound and Sub Woofer system.
