The first thing I noticed when going below was how wide the companionway itself is. The extra couple of inches makes a difference. The interior is spacious for a 32 footer and looks even more so. With 6'3" headroom, it feels big. Twelve sources of natural light illuminate the varnished light woodwork.
All of the side portholes open. The salon table is well designed and accommodates six plus a couple of little ones. The galley is attractive and functional, with a gimballed 3-burner stove with oven, pressurized water and double stainless steel sinks with cutting board covers.
The chart table is on the port side just forward of the galley facing aft. with storage space outboard. The vessel electrical panel is above the table provide quick and easy access.
The aft cabin is spacious without taking all the deep storage space from the cockpit. It also has a large double berth at 7'3" by 4'11". The forward cabin is comfortable and equally private. The berth is large at 5'11" by 6'11". there plenty of storage throughout the boat for long trips with the family
The head is aft and to starboard. It is easily accessible to the companionway. It has 6'1" headroom, pressurized hot and cold water, a hand held shower and interior molding. It also has a wet locker.
