The galley is a delight with the extra large deep stainless steel sinks to aft and the overhead rich teak cabinets. Just outboard the sink is a large dry storage compartment. Next is the stainless steel, gimballed Princess 3-burner propane stove/oven. Forward is the super sized refrigerator/freezer powered by a Sea Frost engine drive refrigeration with the convenience of a 110 Vac shore power assist. The Sea Frost had new valves and hoses installed in 2004. A new Sea Frost compressor was installed in 2009, the system was recharged and completely checked


Starting forward you find the private guest cabin with it's extra large V-berth and removable mattress. There are cabinets, bookshelves and drawers providing ample storage, all in rich teak. A recent upgrade is a vented storage unit built into the V of the berth. An overhead hatch provides excellent ventilation. A vanity is to port and it has a stainless steel sink.

Moving aft, through a teak door is the spacious salon with it's large folding teak dining table. Outboard of each side of the table are full length settees, each pulling out to convert into comfortable port or starboard seaberths (with lee cloths). Many more teak louvered door cabinets and bookshelves provide storage with a nice, warm atmosphere. The cabin sole is teak and holly throughout. Standing headroom is 6'4".

Aft of the salon to port is the large U-shaped galley with space for two. On the starboard side, aft of the second companionway, is the large head with it's separate shower stall.

Aft to port is the large owner's berth with storage underneath. Opposite the berth is the navigation station with it's own hanging wet locker and handy access to the cockpit through the aft companionway. Engine access is just under the stairs of the aft companionway.

Five (5) 12 Vdc fans provide circulation when underway. A 12K BTU air conditioner provides cooling when docked.


The navigation equipment is located at the nav station. The autopilot is at the helm. The engine and wind/depth instruments are just forward of the helm in plain view.
