Once down the companionway steps, you will be greeted by the feeling of openness. Multiple opening portlights and overhead hatches offer great ventilation and wonderful natural light. The interior is very clean with a great layout and lots of storage. As a bonus, the finish on all the interior woodwork is in great shape.

Starting at the bottom of the companionway, the U-shaped galley sits to starboard and has a nice amount of counterspace, deep sink, stove and ice box.

To port of the galley and aft of the salon is a large, open quarter-berth with a forward facing nav station at the forward end of the berth.

Forward of the galley and nav station is a spacious salon with a U-shaped settee with a dining table to port and a full-length settee opposite to starboard. The cushions are very clean and in great shape. Forward of the starboard settee is a storage cabinet with a small 110v refrigerator installed.

Continuing forward to port, there is a nice sized, clean and simple head with a newer porta potty.

Finally, there is a forward stateroom with storage and a cozy V-berth that can be closed off for privacy.

Engine access is behind the ladder leading up to the cockpit and through side accesses from a large lazarette area in the starboard quarter of the vessel.
