From the salon moving forward the U-shaped galley is down to port with the guest head opposite to starboard followed by the V berth. The lower helm is to starboard in the salon. Looking aft, the sofa and dinette are to starboard which also converts into a twin berth. There is a fold out bar forward to port with a recliner and matching ottoman along the port salon bulkhead.

The island queen has a large amount of storage to both port and starboard and the ensuite head with half tub with shower is to starboard forward in the stateroom.
