Head - Easily doubles as Shower

Aft Cabin - Forward Cabin


Easily sleeps 6 in two staterooms and main salon. 


The forward cabin features a V-berth that sleeps two comfortably, drawers and a hanging locker for storage, and a private entrance to the head. 


The roomy head is next aft to port and is well appointed with an electric toilet, shower, stainless steel sink, solar vent, and both open & closed storage outboard.

The galley area is in the hallway leading to the raised main salon, and is perfectly situated for cooking underway or while in port.


The raised main salon has a U-shaped dinette to port and the nav. & lower helm station to starboard. The dinette can be dropped to make a double berth.


Aft to starboard is the entrance to the aft cabin which features a double berth, drawers and a hanging locker. 


The entire interior is done in rich teak, well chosen upholstery, and teak & holly cabin soles. An abundance of port lights and a large panoramic wrap-around window give this yacht a wide-open spacious feeling well beyond its actual size.


The raised salon provides those who are down below to easily see out of the wrap around panoramic window.  This provides an openness to the yacht that is hard to describe - a very welcome feature and much preferred to the "down in the hold" feel of most sailing yachts. 


You travel to far away places for the beauty, and this yacht lets you keep an eye on things, even while you're below.
