This beautifully designed vessel has two staterooms, two heads, a large galley, and a roomy salon with comfortable seating for 6 plus. The aft berth has been changed from its original design as sleeping quarters to extend galley space and accommodate extra storage.  
From the companionway stairs, the salon is forward with a dining area to port and a straight settee and forward facing nav station to starboard.  The dinette can convert to a berth if needed. Under the starboard settee you'll find the ship's batteries, as well as the CruiseAir reverse cycle AC unit.  Gorgeous mahogany cabinetry with locking doors provides a surprising amount of storage space.  Several large windows, charming bronze portholes and integrated deck prisms flood the space with light and a good breeze at anchor. 
Starboard aft is the galley.  Bamboo countertops, an oversized sink, Mariner propane stove, Adler Barbour refrigeration and plenty of storage space, are what make this galley highly functional as well as beautiful. You'll find a surprising amount of storage here too - much more than a newer boat of the same size - and a good amount of countertop space as well. 
Thru the galley in the space that once held a captains quarterberth, is the "tool" room, complete with a custom vertical tool chest and about a dozen other storage lockers to safely stow (and hide away) just about anything.  This versatile space can double as a pantry, closet, or general storage area for all of those necessities onboard.

Through the tool room is the aft head with a Natures Head composting toilet and one of two shower locations.  Ample cabinetry with locking doors provides more storage space. The aft head also has a door to the main salon, acting as the day head.

Forward of the salon are the sleeping berths and the second head. The v-berth offers more storage space in hanging lockers, drawers, cubbies and shelving, as well as access to the forward deck via the large overhead hatch. To port is the guest cabin with two bunks, hanging locker and drawers, and cubbies for storage. The foreword head includes the direct discharge LAVAC marine toilet, as well as the second shower option.

The hull consists of a thick layer of fiberglass over cold molded three layer 3/8" Mahogany planking, which is epoxy bound and fastened. This technique of construction produces a hull that is of superior strength. This boat was designed for circumnavigation and had crossed the Atlantic from Europe on her own bottom.  On deck is a teak overlay that was reseamed in 2018 and shows beautifully. The SS stanchions and lifelines are in good order and a removable netting keeps belongings on deck while underway. All below the waterline thru hulls and valves replaced in the past 5 years.
