Walk Through Description:

    From the cockpit, walking down a set of real stairs as opposed to a mere ladder, one's first reaction is the spaciousness of the interior for a boat of this size.   The galley is immediately to port and the navigation table and equipment is mounted to starboard.  Ahead is the main salon with a lengthy couch to port which pulls out to make a spare berth.  To starboard is an ample seating and dining area with a removable teak table.  The seating is arranged in a horse-shoe design, allowing for seven people.  At the bow is a stateroom with a double bed, two closets and a sink.  There is a door and a window with a drop down shade leading to the room allowing for privacy or openness.  At the stern behind the staircase is the master stateroom with two doors leading in from either the port or starboard  and a king size bed or Starbord Quarther Berth with Port Large Storage Room.  The head is to starboard directly behind the navigation station.  Throughout the entire boat there is ample closet and storage space.  





    The Salon is finished in a warm glossy teak with soft gray upholstery.  There are two large windows above each sitting area that allow for rich natural light, and one hatch above allows for generous ventilation.  Behind and under both settees is enormous storage space in the form of cupboards and lockers.  Fans and lights span the entire area to create a comfortable environment at anchor.  The large teak table in the starboard salon area is removable as is a smaller port table to create more living space when not dining. Center table console holds 5 bottles of wine or other liquor in its fitted rack.  Also, this Sailboat has an Air Conditioner build into one of the storage units, above the couch.
