The transom on either side provides good access to a large aft cockpit area. Beneath the aft cockpit seating there is access to a crew but more often used for huge storage.
The aft cockpit has stairs leading to the flybridge, large curved sliding glass doors leading into the main salon which has a curvaceous lounge to the port side covered in a fawn/beige fabric material and a circular table finished in a cherry wood high gloss finish.
Opposite on the starboard side is an entertainment cabinet finished in similar cherry wood veneer, a flat screen Toshiba television, a satellite TV system, Sky HD receiver boxes, DVD player, glass and bottle storage unit. The continuation of this unit houses the main electrical switch panel for AC & DC power.
The satellite system on board is linked to the cabin televisions which also has individual recievers.
There is a step down galley area which is equipped with twin stainless steel sinks, a four burner gas hob, hob extractor fan, fridge/freezer, a combination microwave oven and Avonite worktops finished in a bone flecked buff color.
The galley also leads to a separate utility room beneath the salon floor and is equipped with a washing/dryer machine, pull out ironing board, linen basket, storage and a separate domestic sized deep freezer. The utility room also provides access to the engine room via a sound insulated watertight hatch.
Stepping up from the salon leads to the helm position located on the starboard side with a separate helm and navigator's seat. Full engine instrumentation and other navigational equipment ergonomically positioned.
Opposite the helm position is a wraparound lounge sofa and table which can also be utilized as a dining area. Behind this area is access to steps leading to the flybridge and a classic water tight squadron door leading onto the side decks.
Moving further forward and stepped down are two twin berthed guest cabins, one on either side. These cabins mirror each other, with twin two metre long single beds with firm inner spring mattresses, with soft-touch nova-suede panels alongside the beds, floor & reading lights, two port holes. The only difference is that the port side cabin has an en suite that doubles as a day heads, while the starboard cabin has a full length mirror.
The owner's state cabin is further forward in the bows of the boat and has a huge island double berth, reading lights, under bunk drawers, hanging lockers, a full length mirror, wooden venetian blinds, two opening port holes and an overhead deck ventilation hatch. This cabin also has its own en suite on the starboard side.
Both heads resemble each other with non slip timber flooring, a shower, top quality chrome fittings including a massage setting on the shower heads, Avonite finished surfaces and smart pin-striped white moulded liners. Both include niceties such as extractor fans, towel racks, electric Vacuflush toilets, mirrored lockers, automatic shower sump pumps and a shaving point.
The flybridge can be accessed by steps from the aft cockpit or from steps behind the inside dining area. The helmsman's seat is centrally located with a co-pilot seat and an additional single seat facing forward. Behind the helm position is a wet bar equipped with a griddle, sink and fridge. There is also an additional curved seating area with a table for entertaining.
The boat is also fitted with reverse cycle air conditioning and heating throughout. Pressurized hot and cold water system. Hot water supplied by engine running or separate immersion heater.
