Headroom here is 5’10”.


Saloon: The saloon has opposing straight settees on either side, with a large drop-leaf dinette table that can seat six beneath them. The 6’3” long settees have tankage and storage beneath them and cubby storage behind the seatbacks.  The seatbacks swing up on a pulley system to convert them to four bunks, with the lower bunks having lee cloths.  Teak staving lines both hull sides above the seatbacks.  There are two LED reading lights above each settee and 2 long opening ports above those.  Overhead, there is a hatch, an LED light, and stainless-steel grab-bars the length of the salon.  Headroom is 6’2”. 


Galley: The galley is at the base of the companionway on port.  L shaped, it has Corian counters with tall teak fiddles, making for good handholds.  The double sink is oriented towards the centerline and has a locker beneath it.  Continuing along and around the hull sides is the top-loading icebox, followed by a utensil drawer and shelved locker beneath the counter.  Aft of that is the stove with a locker beneath that for cookware.  Above the counter and along the hullside are shelves with sliding plexiglass doors.  Above and aft of the stove is a dish organizer.    Headroom in the galley is 5’11”; an overhead hatch and opening port provide ventilation.
