The yacht has a very thoughtful layout that is suited to serious liveaboard cruising. She presents in exceptional condition for her age and has a lot of cruising gear aboard. Starting as you step down the companionway through into the saloon, she exudes a lovely warm feel, not normally seen in today's production yachts. This yacht is made for sailing and features teak grabrails internally as well as externally. Saloon seating around the bookleaf dining table is to port of centerline and there is a large settee to starboard that can double as another single berth if the need arises. Coachroof is finished in gloss GRP while bulkheads and coachwork is in teak, along with a teak and holly floor. Immediately to starboard of the companionway you fine the galley while the lockable nav station is to port. This is enclosed by a door and sliding wall arrangement so it can either be closed of for complete privacy while in the berth or opened up while sitting at the forward facing nav station. Everything is with easy reach in the nav station and there is a removable backrest bolster that allows access to the double berth aft of here. Throughout the saloon you have shelving and storage for all cruising kit as well as sliding curtains to restrict natural lighting when a more cosy atmosphere dictates. A good sized deck hatch over provides for plenty of air flow into this cabin.
TV and fan mounted on bulkhead. Forward into the Vee berth, the genset is mounted under the berth and lockers provide ample storage. Above you have another large deck hatch. The Shower/head are located id dedicated cabin to port just forward of the saloon. Timber panelling and GRP on wet areas are a feature here. The vanity with mixer over has storage below and above. There is also a large mirror located on the forward section of the dividing bulkhead and an opening portlight.
