As you descend into the main companionway a quasi-spiral stair element brings you to the main salon. Enormous wraparound windows bring in plenty of light. To port is a built-in settee and, aft, a terrific galley in a U-shaped niche with wide Corian counters providing plenty of prep space. To starboard, a six-person dinette, the nav station and mid-cabin head.  Aft is the master stateroom.  There is a comfortable queen-size bed, shower and bathtub combination with custom shower door, plenty of storage and a location for the optional washer/dryer.  A guest stateroom in the bow features its own queen-size berth and private head.

On deck are plenty of places to entertain, lounge or work the boat.  A double anchor roller leads fair to a large anchor locker with a recessed windlass, leaving the foredeck unobstructed. Wide side decks make roaming fore and aft simple and safe. The cockpit, a large oval affair contained by the arch, offers easy sail handling and comfortable hanging. The after deck is grand, and the walk-on walk-off transom is equipped with deep lockers.
