The dining table has two folding leaves and slides to provide cocktail table versatility or to facilitate conversion to a double berth. For your convenience and security SABRE provides a a switch at the companionway which illuminates the courtesy lights and an overhead light at the chart table. A dimmer has been added to the recessed overhead light circuit to add ambiance to this luxurious space.
