This full width cabin features a king size, centreline berth with carved corner posts.
To port and starboard are his/hers nightstands with drawers underneath and swing out lamp above. The décor is John Munford understated elegance with raised teak drawer fronts and off white fabric panels trimmed in teak. Outboard of the night stands are large his/hers closets.
Forward to starboard is a settee and then the entrance to the spacious, en­suite head with both shower stall and tub. To port is a vanity with stool and fold up mirror. In the middle toward the entrance door is the mizzen mast to remind you that you are actually aboard a sailboat and not in a well appointed club ashore.
The study continues the teak with off white fabric panel’s décor of the other cabins and features a large, teak roll top desk that extends across the forward bulkhead with a low credenza outboard and bookshelves above. Inboard of the desk is a cupboard which conceals a computer and printer. Along the outer side of the cabin is a long, cream colored sofa that can convert to a single berth. The entrance to this cabin is inside the door to the master stateroom, making it an idea cabin for a young child. There is a large closet on the aft wall.
Starboard Guest Stateroom
This cabin has a large double berth outboard of a beautifully carved desk with stool underneath and a mirror so it can also be used for a vanity. Along the inner wall is a chest of drawers with a teak paneled Pullman berth above that can fold out to accommodate another guest. The headboard and sideboard are tufted leather and many of the wall panels are off white fabric. There is a large porthole over the berth and a large hanging locker forward next to the door to the private en­suite head with shower stall.
Port Guest Stateroom
There are twin beds in this cabin with a beautifully crafted teak chest of drawers in between. The headboards and sideboards are tufted leather and many of the wall panels are off white fabric to compliment the teak trim and brighten the cabin. There is a large port hole over the outboard berth. Under the berths are large drawers. At the foot of the outboard berth is a large hanging locker, and forward of that is the private en­suite head with a separate shower stall.
On the port side as you descent forward from the main salon, the well appointed galley is laid out for producing high quality cuisine both at sea and at anchor. There is a lot of jade/white Corian counter space for preparing meals and a minimum of open space for safety at sea. There is a double oven on the aft end, a cook top with bracing for off shore cooking on the forward side, and large amounts of refrigerator and freezer space as well as white, teak trimmed cabinets for cooking utensils, condiments and food storage. Two portholes and an opening hatch above make this a bright area.

The dining table is forward to port and seats eight in custom caned back chairs with images of the astronomer Galileo carved in the cross brace.
To starboard is a comfortable, indoor seating area with two club chairs and a sofa spaced around a low table. Aft to port is an office area with a large desk and bookshelves that originally served as a second navigations area but now the Trac77 system is housed in the desk where a large radar used to be so it is now a communication center, although with WiFi laptops can be used to access the internet throughout the boat
The floor is teak and holly with a gloss finish and the overhead is off white ultra suede. There is a large amount of storage in the cabinets forward and outboard under the windows.
Lower Deck and Engine Room
The laundry and more refrigerator and freezer storage is located on the lower deck below the galley. This area has full standing headroom and stores can be directly loaded through a deck hatch and a hatch in the galley floor directly underneath. Forward, under the crew quarters, is a large storage area. Access to the engine room is through a watertight door at the aft end of this area.
Aft of the pilot house is a large comfortable, coved cockpit. At the forward end is the wet bar and service area on either side with access to the side decks. Aft to port is a U shaped settee with comfortable seating for 6. Opposite to starboard is an L shaped settee with a table in front and access to the aft deck next to the mizzen mast.
The large open aft deck is a terrific area for sunning when underway and entertaining under the awning when at anchor. There is a table and chairs capable of seating 10 people. There is also another area for sunning on top of the salon forward of the pilot house. The windlass is on deck forward.
