This vessel is the Euro Style that is becoming very popular in the US because of the larger living space it affords below, and better use of the Galley space

Upon entering the Main Salon – There is Head and shower immediately to Starbd – and two aft guest cabins- One to Starbd, and one to Port.  The Starbd guest cabin also has a private  door to the aft head, making this an en-suite cabin.

Forward of the Head, on Starbd side is the large Dinette   - this easily seats 8 people with the convenient ottoman inboard of the table.  This also becomes a very comfortable lounging area with a nice extended lounge seat to the aft part of the seating area – Two people can comfortable stretch their feet out and read or use this area for any other purpose – this Dinette can also be lowed for 2 additional berths

Moving forward along the Port side is the forward facing Nav station, and then the linear Galley – this layout is very convenient as several people can use the Galley features at the same time, as opposed to the older style U-shaped galley which is very restrictive.  This style Galley also affords loads of usable counter space for cooking or entertaining.

Forward of the Salon is the Master en-suite cabin with queen berth and private head and shower.


Located aft of the main salon and accessed via a removable hatch in the center of the cabinetry aft of the entrance steps, this contains the main engine, reduction gear, and immediate related auxiliary equipment.
