This luxury houseboat is elegantly laid out with four private staterooms and three heads. The saloon features comfortable lounging, a fully outfitted galley, and a formal dining area. 
Sleeps eight in four private staterooms. There are two mirror-image guest cabins to port with twin berths and ample storage. Aft of that is the plush VIP guest cabin with double berth. To starboard is the guest head, well-appointed with up-scale tiling and a glass stall shower. Aft and to port is the generous master suite complete with a raised island queen berth, pop-up TV, full size hanging lockers and an en-suite head.
Walkthrough - Bow area
Boarding the boat through the walk-through the port-side foredeck access, you find a C-shaped, cushioned lounge forward to port and starboard. Underneath is access to the two EZ1500 rope and chain anchor windlasses and plenty of storage. The first level decks have Flex-Teak flooring throughout. There are cocktail tables and a circulating fan, and a full enclosure under the foredeck hardtop with U-zips and screens. There is a fully enclosed staircase going aft along the starboard side, leading to the bridgedeck. 
Walkthrough - Saloon
From the foredeck, the Saloon is accessed via a sliding door with screen. To the starboard is a very complete helm with full instrumentation including engine diagnostics, and controls for the bow and stern thrusters. Moving aft, you have the large, flat-panel TV and entertainment center. Opposed to port is the spacious L-shaped lounge area with seating for six to eight, end tables, and a padded ottoman/footrest/locker. 
Proceeding aft, to starboard, you have the well-appointed chef's galley (detailed elsewhere) with upgraded cabinets, counters and tile-and-stone backsplashes.  There's a large service and dining island facing the galley with three highchairs. Opposed, to port is the formal dining set, fixed table and chairs for six. Abaft to port is a wet bar, entertainment center complete with sink, refrigerator and freezer drawers, wine captain, bottle and glass racks and plenty of storage. 
The very complete galley features custom cabinetry and solid surface counters throughout. There are double, stainless under-mounted sinks with custom spigot with integrated spray wand and insta-hot water. There is a Bosch under-counter dishwasher. Bosch conventional/convection oven, and four burner electric glass cooktop range. Frigidaire under-cabinet microwave. A huge, stainless Frigidaire side-by-side refrigerator/freezer with water and ice in door.
It is all set off with light counters, mahogany cabinets, large windows with custom slatted blinds, subtle under-cabinet lighting and custom tile-and-stone back-splashes.
The top deck is accessed via a staircase from the foredeck to the main helm and seating area, as well as from a spiral staircase from the aft deck.. The upper helm is equipped with full instrumentation and electronics including:
  • Raymarine HybridTouch MFD display with GPS Plotter
  • Raymarine Radar with closed array dome

Top Deck
The top deck is accessed via a staircase from the foredeck to the main helm and seating area, as well as from a spiral staircase from the aft deck. Beginning at the aft bridge, you have an open seating area with chairs, lounges and tables, surrounding the hot tub. There is a retractable awning to shade this portion of the bridge. Going forward, and under the hard top, there is a huge, featured stone fireplace with inset TV, facing forward. 
Forward of the stone fireplace is a C-shaped bar with bar seating chairs around it. The bar/entertainment area features an inset sink, refrigerator and microwave as well as ample storage. Forward is an open entertainment area with ample seating and tables for dining and entertainment. This whole area is under a fiberglass hard top with overhead fans, surround sound speakers and has a complete, removable enclosure. 
Master Stateroom
The plush and welcoming master stateroom features a raised island queen berth with head and footboard. Recessed into the footboard is a retractable, flat panel TV. Surrounding the berth are ample, opening windows for light and air; drawer and hanging locker storage, and controls for the circulating fan, lighting, dimmers and climate.
The master also features an en-suite head with enormous custom artwork, and tiled and decored glass shower. Flush with natural light and blinds for privacy, it is warm and as upscale as you could expect. 
Aft Deck
The aft deck is accessed via a locking sliding door from the master, or via a spiral staircase from the bridge deck. It is outfitted with faux-teak decking, and has a retractable awning that extends well aft blocking all but the final rays of the sunset if you choose. There is ample room for deck chairs, tables and lounges. There is a day head accessible from the back deck as well. Shore power is on the forward bulkhead.
