The forward cabin provides plenty of space, comfort and privacy for your guests with privacy doors to both the galley area and the guest head compartment.  The chef on-board will appreciate the full service galley which is located just aft to port featuring plenty of counter space, ample storage, reliable and easy to use appliances and tons of natural lighting.  Directly across from the galley to starboard is a huge U-shaped dinette that converts to a large double berth.  There is storage under each settee, easy access to wiring, and again, a vast amount of natural lighting bringing out the rich woodwork.  The natural lighting makes the space a delight to be in unlike many boats lacking the space and lighting.  The Salon is spacious, well lighted and features a lower helm with a side opening door, and opening windows.  Aft, down three steps is the master stateroom.  An incredible layout featuring a queen island berth, a vanity with stool to starboard, lighted hanging locker, storage and more storage. A built in night stand, to port provides even more storage along with lighted lockers, a washing machine (non-functioning) within it’s own storage compartment, and the ensuite master head compartment. There is air conditioning throughout the vessel to ensure your comfort level remains high even on those hot summer days.

The spacious aft deck is great for relaxing or entertaining.  The hard top is a great feature that not only affords you a place to store the dinghy while underway, but gives sturdy shelter from the sun and weather.  (NOTE: existing aft deck furniture does not convey)  Two bench seats on the bridge along with the captains chair and a passenger chair is assurance the captain will not be alone while underway. 


The forward cabin features a centerline Queen berth with storage under. To port is a storage cabinet, small settee, and drawer storage. To starboard is a vanity table and stool with mirrored cabinet. The port aft corner is access to the in-suite head and shower. Dedicated AC and Heat controls are included.


Just aft of the forward cabin is the galley and dining area.  The fully functional galley is located to port and features:

  • Norcold Refrigerator with Freezer Compartment 
  • Galley Maid Empress three burner electric stove with oven and cover 
  • Sharp Carousel Convection Microwave
  • Tappan Trash Compactor
  • Deep stainless steel sink with h/c pressure water
  • One opening screened port
  • Ample counter space for food preperation
  • Tons of storage compartments 

The dining area located directly across from the galley features a large dinette table with bench seating.  The table lowers to convert to a good size berth.  To lower or raise the table, simply push the button — it is electronically operated.  There are six storage drawers in the dining area plus the bench seating is all storage beneath.  Access to wiring is just behind the dinette.

Both the galley and the dining area are well lighted with natural lighting from the forward Salon windows making is a very pleasant space in which to prepare meals and eat. 


A large enclosed head compartment is situated to service the guest cabin from a private entrance or day use for guests with an entrance into the galley/dining area.  The compartment features an electric flush marine toilet, a huge sink, storage lockers, shelving, a large screened port, bulkhead mirror, shower nozzle, teak towel rack, faucets and teak trim 


Up three steps from the galley/dining area the Salon has two entry points from the outside.  As you enter from the aft deck down the sweeping stairs, the first impression is that this space is spacious and inviting for entertaining and well lighted, with easy transition from the galley to the saloon to the aft deck. 

There is a second entry point at the lower helm station providing direct access to the starboard side deck, plenty of natural ventilation while underway or in port and even more light.  The lower helm station contains full engine instrumentation gauges, electronics, a beautiful ships wheel and the electric panel to the side. 


The master suite is just three stairs down and aft of the salon.  An incredible space that invites you to relax featuring a center-line queen berth with an escape hatch behind, either side has a built in night stand, storage lockers with shelving, counters that offer plenty of room for your personal items, lighted hanging lockers, storage drawers and a vanity on the starboard side with a stool.  There is a large bulkhead mirror and a separate storage compartment for the washing machine.
