Accommodations

This vessel has a rich all-mahogany interior that makes you feel warm and safe in any weather.

Upon entering the companionway, you will find a u-shaped galley to port and an expansive chart table and navigation station to starboard. The nav station on this boat is much larger than on similar vessels, and can be used as a station for any type of work.

A u-shaped dinette to port seats 4 people, and 2 more can be seated comfortable on the settee to starboard.

Forward of the mast step, there is a large head to port and ample storage to starboard, including full hanging lockers. The v-berth is large and comfortable and includes an insert to make it into a full double bed.

The detail on this fine vessel is exceptional...you have to see it and enjoy it to fully appreciate it. Call me!
