KINSHIP is a Saga 43 "Pullman berth layout" sloop with great accommodations both inside and out. The Cherry joinery has stood the test of time and is in good condition, as is the upholstery. KINSHIP has had good ownership and it shows throughout.

The vessel's equipment list is long and includes many items that make blue water sailing easier, safer, and more comfortable.

Starting forward is a head and shower that makes very good use of the fore-peak and provides good storage; currently, this space is being used as storage and work area. Next aft is the master stateroom with large double Pullman style bed to port and storage drawers and lockers to starboard. The water maker is under the berth. This stateroom has two opening ports, one overhead hatch, and two electric fans. There are four dorade boxes with vents on deck.

The salon is mid-ship with comfortable port and starboard settees that also provide additional sleeping arrangement. Normally the centerline, fixed table would be found but this owner has never had a need for the table so it is like new, stored away back home, alone with the cabin doors.

The navigation station is to starboard with large chart table. You use the settee as the chart table seat. The galley is aft of the nav. station.

Across from the galley to port and aft of the salon settee is a second Jabsco manual head with separate shower stall. The head has two opening ports, one overhead hatch, one dorade, and one electric fan.

The guest cabin is aft of the head with double bed with good storage space and ventilation. The owner has installed a navigation devise (repeater) on the ceiling for his convenience.

KINSHIP has extra hand rails for safety reasons throughout the vessel.

The interior may be cooled by a portable air conditioner, easy to use.
