The exceptional teak joinery work creates a very warm and inviting interior that features ample storage and comfortable areas for the crew and guests. All the details have been addressed - great ventilation, ample safety rails and a beautiful teak and holly cabin floor that has hatches which are secured with latches. The exterior features wide side decks with 5" tall bulwarks for added safety. All sail control lines are led aft to the cockpit, plus the self-bailing cockpit has safety harness padeyes. The deck and cockpit take into account the importance of the crew’s safety when anchoring, docking, maneuvering and sailing. If you are in the market for that exceptional cruising boat, don't miss this opportunity.

Down below the salon features a comfortable arrangement for the crew and guests. The forward stateroom has a double sleeping area, two large lockers, additional storage compartments and a seat with a dressing area. The well-ventilated head is located forward along the starboard side. Moving aft and along the starboard side is an L-shaped settee that will convert into a double berth. On the port side of the salon is a straight settee which will also double as an adult sleeping berth. In the center of the salon is a beautiful solid teak table with two folding leaves and center storage. The large galley is designed to make food preparation easy while underway. Across from the galley is the forward-facing navigation station which features a large chart table and a comfortable seat. In the port aft corner of the boat is a large quarter berth that makes for a great berth when underway.
