You will be immediately impressed by the spacious and bright interior. Her accommodations are perhaps the best available in a yacht of her size. Serendipity is a two stateroom model with a very generous main salon. A large Pullman berth is featured in the master stateroom with an upholstered dressing seat with a contoured backrest, large cedar lined hanging locker, bureau cabinet, berth shelves and plenty of stowage volume under the berth, making this stateroom excellent for extended periods aboard. The head is a next aft to starboard and is a practical layout with large wrap around counter, lots of cabinets, a shower with contoured seat and curtain. Private access from the stateroom or the salon. The salon is equally suited for social gatherings. The central hinged table may be either secured against the bulkhead mounted bottle and glass rack or easily lowered for a large dining area. Long bench seating lines the port and starboard hull, whichpull out to convert to a single and double berth. Aft of the port settee is an aft facing nav station. An exceptional amount of interior storage is available in the salon as else where throughout the interior, due in good part to the generous tankage centrally located below the cabin sole. Besides its obvious benefit of improving stowage, weight low and central adds to a nice sea kindly vessel. Port aft is the aft stateroom, a generous athwartship double berth with cedar lined hanging locker. Starboard of the companionway is a full U shaped galley.
