The interior spaces of this yacht are finished to the highest standard in solid teak. It has one of the most comfortable and roomy cabins in this size vessel. The cabin soles are all solid teak and holly. The head with shower has a mosaic tiled floor. Doors are solid teak and fit perfectly. Fixed windows are tinted safety glass with teak trim.


There is excellent ventilation with 5 Bowmar Ocean deck hatches, and 7 stainless opening ports (with screens), and 6 fixed ports. All port and windows have shades. The overhead is paneled and easily removable for maintenance. The whole boat is set up for offshore use with plenty of solid handholds and fiddles in the galley. All lockers have solid teak louvered doors and the hanging lockers all have automatic lights and are teak lined. (All lockers are teak lined.) The whole vessel has excellent natural light with well-located deck prisms. She is completely dry; no mildew, no smells, no leaks.


Forward there is a self-draining anchor locker. Aft of this is the master cabin, finished with real teak. This area features a large berth that can be extended out to comfortably sleep two large adults. Bedding is finished with Tempur-Pedic for very comfortable sleeping (new 2011). Under the berth are two large storage areas, with 2 lockers at the foot of the bed and 1 large locker above and to port with a mirrored door and with 2 shelves. There is also a large hanging locker (lighted and fully lined with teak). There are 3 drawers and an open bookshelf both located to port. Equipped with various reading lights and a fan. You can also have private access to the head if desired. (It can also be accessed from the main salon as well).

Aft is the main salon. This is a very comfortable roomy area. On the port side is a bench sofa, which opens to a large sea berth. The navigation table is at the end of this sofa facing aft. On the starboard is a beautiful teak oval table with storage under. The salon has ample cupboard and shelf space (including a built in wine rack for bottle storage). There is also a flat screen TV, DVD, and stereo, ample lighting and fans.


The port side galley features a three burner stove with oven and broiler, oversized fridge, double sinks with both pressure and manual faucets, and plenty of storage for dry goods, dishes, and cook ware with both lockers and drawers. Drawers include utensil drawer and a pull out cutting board.


To starboard is the guest cabin, which has a large (8 foot long) berth, a hidden vanity sink, hanging locker (fully lined and lighted), 2-shelf cupboard with mirrored door. This is a very comfortable spacious cabin.


The cockpit is very comfortable and safe for offshore use, with custom cushions, barbecue, and stainless binnacle, with autopilot and navigation equipment. The chartplotter/radar display can be moved from the Nav station below to the cockpit for passage use.


The deck is very clean and easy to work on with plenty of teak handholds (new 2011), 4 stainless dorade vents, and 4 person Avon life raft.


The electrical and plumbing installation on this boat is to a very high standard. All wires are labeled and immaculately run from the main AC/DC panel, with a sub panel for the nav/cockpit area. All plumbing is well installed piping with heavy-duty pumps etc.


In 2007 the whole of the bottom was stripped and gel coat removed, the hull was dried out and refinished with 2 coats of Interlux eglass, then 830 fairing compound, 4 coats 2000 expoxy barrier then 2 coats Interlux antifouling, this was all professionally done with no expense spared.
