Boarding HAPPINESS IS is easiest via the aft end of the boat.  From a fixed dock one can step onto the gunnel.  From a floating dock, onto the swim platform, through the transom door into the Cockpit and up four steps to the covered Aft Deck.  The Aft Deck has a portside cabinet with a Corian countertop and stainless steel BBQ grill above.

The Salon is entered via a sliding portside door.  Immediately to starboard is the Galley.  Unusual in its aft placement it opens the Salon up and is quite roomy.  To port is an L shaped dining table with foldable leaves to seat six.

Next forward is the Salon with a leather couch to port, with a wood cocktail table in front.  To starboard are two swivel barrel chairs with an end table and table lamp above.

Forward is additional refrigerator/freezer space and a 40” Samsung LCD TV.

Separated by a glass and wood partition is the Pilothouse, next forward. 

The Pilothouse has a centerline helm, a full compliment of upgraded electronics plus wing doors port and starboard.  Steps to starboard lead to below.

At the base of the stairs is an L shaped lounge to port with a desk to starboard.  The sole of this area is planked cherry.

The lounge converts to sleep two and a pullout curtain provides privacy from the centerline Companionway.

Forward is the Guest Cabin with over/under bunks to port and a two person settee and private head to starboard.

Heading aft from the Lounge Area and down three steps is the Laundry Center followed by a head and shower.

To port across the Companionway is a Cabin with two lower berths and ample storage. 

Further aft between the four access doors to the Engine Room is the private Master Cabin.  A king size berth on centerline with abundant port and starboard storage plus a large head with a tub shower easily define this cabin as the Master’s.

The Flybridge is accessed solely by the steps from the Pilothouse.

The helm is centerline with helm and companion seats, seating to port and starboard plus large Bimini top covered area aft the midship radar arch.
