Starting at the bow, there are upper and lower anchor lockers, followed by a large sail and storage locker with deck and interior access. In this locker the owner has installed the new Fisher Panda 6.5 KW super quite generator.  This was a great idea and makes access a cinch.  Next in the bow is the forward head (composting head) and shower, with large sink area. Next aft (instead of the usual V-berth arrangement) is a convertible den with port side desk, hanging locker, drawers, book shelf, built-in TV set, and storage . On the starboard side of the den there is a long over and under settee, with slide out double berth above. This arrangement facilitates two single berths for extra passage making crew, or an ample double berth for a visiting couple. For the lone cruising couple, it becomes a roomy den or office. It is a rare sailboat indeed that can boast of such a sensible and versatile forepeak.

Next aft is the main salon, featuring an L-shaped settee surrounding the gorgeous teak salon table with inlaid mahogany and poured resin finish, and flanked by an additional settee to port with an end table and drawers, topped by a wine cabinet with a decorative glass door front.

Next aft is the ample galley (starboard side) with Adler Barbor refrigeration and separate freezer, acrylic mirrored walls for a spacious feel and custom acrylic spice rack and accessories.

The huge navigation station resides to port with all electronics and navigation gear neatly installed in a black Formica face panel. Just aft is a dedicated workbench area with tool storage.

The Captain's master cabin in the aft section comprises a centerline queen size berth, two hanging lockers, an abundance of additional storage, head with separate shower, complete with teak seating bench, and custom bi-fold Lexan shower door. The luxurious sink/vanity area (custom decorated in green and gold) complete the Captain?s cabin with an air of extravagance. This head is an electric flush with ElectaScan sanitation system for full time live aboard use.  No pumping out.

Deck Equipment
Excellent deck layout  most notable is the expansive and uncluttered aft deck - very useful when cruising. Unlike many center cockpit cruising boats, which have very limited on-deck storage, She has a large sail locker forward, as well as two smaller lockers aft. The teak decks were removed years ago and solid fiberglass non skid had replaced any chance of penetration.   The fiberglass is cored with 2? X 2? X ½ ? squares of
