The first thing you notice when you come aboard Miss Amanda is the incredible amount of headroom and just how big she is. This 3 cabin 2 head boat offers room for the whole family with a space for everyone. From floor to headliner the upgrades jump right out at you. In addition to the new headliner, custom mahogany paneling, trim, and cabinetry have been installed making her stand above the rest. All new flooring was installed with the exception of the beautiful parquet in salon. She has incredibly large windows that draw the light right in making her feel warm and inviting. Looking for a little privacy? No problem bamboo blinds were installed.

The aft cabin is extremely sizable and has a queen sized futon which doubles for a nice seating area.  The V berth Queen and Crews Quarters single berths have benefited from upgraded bedding really freshening them up.
