The salon has two large front, side ,and rear windows giving a instant bright look .  The two overhead salon bridge brow hatches, twin side doors, and the aft deck door with screen provide plenty of cross ventilation..   The L-Shaped settee to starboard is complimented by the twin swivel helm chairs .   The settee converts into a queen size berth accented by a   Hi-Lo table with padded storage stools.     Custom designer blue and cream striped pillows match the drapes. A salon 26" Sony Bravia flatscreen HDTV with integrated Bose Surround Sound with built in speakers and a woofer and  DVD/CD Player provides for great entertainment .

The head is to port and features a separate shower with seat, VacuFlush head, and opening portlight . 


The finest feature of the Island Pilot layout has to be the 'Basement' under the salon .  Since the engines are aft, this area becomes a roomy dry storage room for provisions .  This area has the washer/dryer,  batteries and access to the electrical systems....there is no need to crawl into a hot engine room to check these items.
