Moving aft from the V-berth is the main salon with an U-shaped dinette to starboard and a bench settee to port. There is stowage space below the settees and in cabinets above the seat cushions. The dinette table has a folding leaf that allows for easy passage in the salon area. The entire table can lower and convert for additional sleeping for guests providing accommodations for a total of seven. You will find the teak and holly soles throughout the vessel. Aft of the salon to starboard houses a redesigned galley with a double sink, refrigeration, CNG stove with oven, and numerous drawers and cabinets. To port is the navigational station with AC/DC electrical panel. This redesign includes all teak doors on the cabinets and lockers. Between the galley and the nav station is the companionway and directly aft of the nav station is the master head. There are two entrances to the aft cabin, one through the master head and one aft of the galley. There is a centerline queen bed in the master stateroom, hanging lockers and storage cabinets on each side of the bed. Both guest and master heads have pressure hot and cold water systems.
