Forward is the V berth stateroom with a privacy door. It has outboard storage cabinets (two per side) with shelves above and a double door hanging locker with a shelf above. 

Moving aft, there is a cabinet with drawer and shelf storage to port and opposite to starboard is the head which includes a vanity, shower with a bench seat and the toilet.

Again aft is the full beam salon. There is a pull out straight settee to port and a U-shaped convertible dinette to starboard. There are two outboard overhead cabinets on each side with shelf storage. 

The port side U-shaped galley and starboard side navigation station are next aft. The galley features ample counter space, double lid refrigeration, 3-burner stove with oven, dry storage, double stainless sinks and abundant cabinet and drawer storage. The navigation station is home to the vessel’s electronics and the electrical panels.

The quarter berth is aft of the navigation station.

Nine opening stainless port lights, two overhead hatches and four dorades provide plenty of air circulation in the cabin. Fine teak joinery and teak and holly sole adorn the interior of the vessel for a very warm feeling.
