When you enter this yacht through the companion way you are greeted by an open and airy galley to port and the nav station to starboard with full views outside. There are stainless steel grab rails everywhere, the American Cherry joinery is stunning, and storage abounds. Concertina blinds which are extremely functional, cover the raised salon windows. There are custom curtains on all the ports and even a nice area starboard of the companion way used as a wet locker. For more details on the galley and nav station see below.
Forward of the galley and down a step is the large salon to port with generous "U" shaped seating and a settee to starboard. The table pivots and also raises to the ceiling to allow easy access to the port settee at both the forward and aft ends.
