Accommodations and Layout

Chain locker forward with chain stowage for two anchors; Satin finished cherry bulkheads and a huge V-berth with a large amount of drawer storage under. 8 large drawers with cherry faces are built in aft of the berth on the port side and 3 drawers with a large hanging locker are aft on the starboard. Two side port lights with a large Bomar hatch overhead allow exceptional natural light and air. In addition, there are two bunk reading lamps and two overhead lights. The deck sole is varnished cherry.

Aft to port is a berth over a convertible settee and cabinetry containing a Blaupunkt cassette/8 CD changer with speakers throughout the vessel. A Sony television, is also located here, with VCR on a moveable base to allow viewing from anywhere in the salon. Under this cabinet are two very large storage drawers. Further aft is a very large head with separate oversized shower with seat, and more than ample storage. The head system is Vacuflush. The shower and head have custom cabinetry and white composite bulkheads trimmed in teak with a satin finish. The countertops are Corian, the sink is polished stainless and the fixtures are FM Mattson. There is a port light and overhead lighting as well.

On the starboard side of the salon, there is a matching berth and settee bulkhead and overhead lighting. Bulkhead fans and storage under the convertible settee.
Aft of this is the galley. There is a large amount of storage in a series of sliding lockers. The lockers contain a Panasonic microwave oven and a very efficient dish and glass racking system. Below the cabinetry is a very large Corian counter/prep area that houses a large double polished stainless sink with FM Mattson retractable faucetry, a huge Glacier Bay refrigerator, a Glacier Bay freezer and Force 10 marine propane 3 burner stove with sea rails and oven. There are 4 drawers for the galley utensils and a huge under sink storage locker. There is also a Xintex X2A propane detector sensor with alarm.

The electrical panel is on the aft bulkhead on the starboard side just before entering the bridge deck. There are four teak treads and varnished mahogany doors. In the stair area are the tank tender gauges and a manual bilge pump panel and generator panel.

The bridge deck is brightly varnished Honduras Mahogany with exquisite joinery with beautiful grain. There is a large chart table with a custom helm seat of mahogany with cushions to port and an L-shaped settee just aft with good storage under.

On the starboard side is the helm console of mahogany with a 6" Ritchie power damp compass, a FURUNO FCV 667 color video sounder, Robertson A20 autopilot, a Northstar 6000 DGPS charts system and a Furuno 48 mile radar. The Volvo single lever electronic controls, Bennett trim tabs, engine gauges and windshield wiper panel is below near the steering wheel.
