Beautiful Mahogany interior really set this boat apart. Forward is the owners stateroom with an ensuite head with a separate shower, lots of storage and natural light. Aft and to starboard is the very comfortable salon, adjustable to another berth, to port is a great settee with a flatscreen TV above. Again tons of storage!! To starboard and aft is the galley and oh what a great galley it is!! Plenty of counter space, microwave, double stainless sink, gas oven and cooktop. To port is the nav station and aft is the second head and the double berth with tons of storage....again!! To starboard and aft of the galley is the generator room with even more storage. She makes a great livaboard too!!
