Vessel Walkthrough

Boarding through either the port or starboard boarding gates and into the large cockpit area you begin to notice the refinements accomplished by the knowledgeable owner. The addition of a custom made helm seat, folding steering wheel, seat cushions, custom Sea Deck Flooring and the new bimini and enclosure, the cockpit area will seat a crowd. Into the companionway and down the steps you enter into the interior. Immediately to port is the L-Shaped galley area. To starboard is the navigation station facing forward with lift up charting table and comfortable seat. Aft of the galley and navigation station is the master cabin. Entered from either side, along the starboard side is a doorway into the master head, which also acts as the day head. Into the master stateroom and athwartships is the newly designed berth which utilizes a standard home queen sized mattress with Froli mattress system for an amazing night sleep. Design changes allow additional starboard side storage. Also along the starboard side are cabinets with hanging locker and two large bookshelf storage areas. To port is an additional cabinet with hanging locker and a shelved galley pantry. Along the bed head board is another bookshelf area above. Forward in the master is a mirrored wall with rear engine and transmission access. Back to the companionway and forward is the salon area which features a long settee along the starboard side and a U-Shaped settee along the port side which also acts as the dinette. A folding table separates the two settees. The salon has ample storage cabinets and a built in bottle storage area behind the port settee. All the way forward is the guest stateroom with large V-Berth with storage drawers beneath. Along the port side is the en-suite head and along the starboard side is a hanging locker with storage above. The owner has added some matching storage areas.


The galley is located along the port side of the main cabin and features and extraordinary amount of storage and ample countertop space to please even the most discriminating chef.
