Vessel Overview
Stepping aboard and onto the large teak cockpit from either the wide side decks and down 3 steps or thru the transom door from the teak swim platform, makes getting aboard easy.
The large teak cockpit has 3 storage hatches for fenders, dock lines and access to the steering running gear. There is a port side bench with cushions and storage inside, a cockpit shower on the stern. There is a hinged Mast for antennas, radar, spreader lights, flag halyard and wind instrument. 
Moving forward up two steps onto the teak helm area between the companionway, you have port and starboard Pompanette swivel chairs with foot-rests, cushions and canvas covers. The starboard side helm chair has easy viewing of the 2 Chart-Plotters, VHF, Auto-pilot and engine gauges. The port side companion chair has access to a small storage locker as well as the chart storage cabinet. There is a forward facing bench seat with cushions behind. Access to the engine room is through the hydraulic lifting center-line hatch. An electric powered window vent keeps the air in and and rain out.
Entering the companionway down four steps and onto the varnished teak and holly cabin sole, to your left is the galley and the settee is to your right. The U- Shaped galley is equipped with a 3 burner propane stove and convection/microwave oven under the stove. Solid surface counter-tops. Two refrigeration/freezer units, one front loading and the other top loading unit in the aft port corner of the galley. A double stainless sink with storage under as well as a storage bin on the forward port corner of the galley. 
The U- shaped settee seats 4 and can be converted to a berth. Storage cabinet outboard. The electrical panel for the 12V/110 systems is located on the starboard aft bulkhead. Moving forward the head is on the port side. I sliding teak door opens to the head which features a freshwater Vacu-Flush head, solid counter top surface with built in sink. Grohe fixtures with pull around shower curtain, opening stainless port.
The forward owner's cabin features a large v-berth with filler cushion, over-sized custom mattresses. Cabinets outboard above the berth, hanging lockers both port and starboard.
