Stepping below to starboard is the well laid out navigator’s station with wet locker. To port is the galley with microwave, stove with oven, dish washer, clothes washer/dryer, refrigerator and deep sink. There is ample counter top space and many lockers.
Leaving the galley and going forward you enter the salon with a starboard side bench seat that may be use as a berth underway. The starboard area contains multiple lockers and storage as well as the entertainment center with TV, CD player and radio. To port is the very comfortable U-shaped dinette with table that seats six with ease.
Continuing on, you pass through a watertight door. You are standing in a small passageway with hanging locker/storage to starboard and head with storage to port.
Ahead of you is the guest V-berth cabin. As with the entire vessel there is tremendous storage. Note at the foot of the berth the retractable bow thruster. A great feature when maneuvering in tight spaces.
Going aft through the navigation area one enters a passageway that leads to the private master cabin. In this passageway, outboard, is a single berth with storage above and hanging locker at its foot.
Passing through another watertight door you enter the master stateroom with two berths. A double berth is located to port and single to starboard. As you enter there is a large hanging locker to starboard and head with shower to port. (Both ships heads have there own black water holding tanks that may be pumped overboard or siphoned out dockside.)
All living compartments have opening hatches and ports. Most contain 24vdc/220vac lighting and outlets. There are 24vdc Hella fans in the aft stateroom salon and forward stateroom
