The forward cabin is an office/stateroom with a private head, then there is a galley with new commercial grade stainless countertops, Force Ten gimbaled stove, top-loading refrigerator freezer (DC), and plenty of storage amidships. The galley has its own dinette table seating for 4 adults.

Views are great out the 270 degrees of wrap around 16mm glass windows. Then there is the ladder up into cockpit and to starboard a passageway to the aft cabin.

Heading back to the aft cabin, there are two sea bunks to starboard and a full utility room to port that is plumbed and ready for washer dryer and now used for massive storage to port in this passage.

The aft all teak cabin has a walk-around queen-size berth, five hanging lockers, and tons of drawers.

On the port side is the aft head with a full sit down bathtub and stand up shower! Through the aft head you enter the workshop side of the engine room where there is full standing headroom and a long workbench with vise, drill press, massive tool storage and the 120 HP Cummins engine and 5.6kW Northern Lights generator.

There is access all around the engine, including standing room on the port side and sitting height on starboard side.

From Raymarine instruments and autopilot to radar to AIS transceiver to solar panels and wind generator, air conditioning, Fusion stereo, and more, this boat is truly fitted out with everything needed to leave for comfortable and safe bluewater cruising.
