The main saloon is bright and airy providing an impression of warmth and comfort. At the aft, starboard end of the salon is a large nav-desk and walk-in engine room behind. To port is a huge L-shaped galley and pantry. The Master cabin is forward with a large Pullman berth, en-suite head separate shower/tub. Aft of the galley there is two almost identical guest cabins with a head/shower.


A large dining table that comfortably seats 6 to port with L-shaped sofa and a large sofa that would seat 3 to starboard. The sofas both come with lee-cloths and can be converted very quickly into extremely comfortable sea-berths, in rough head seas, this is the choice spot to sleep. All upholstery is finished beautifully in cream leatherette. All cushions can be easily removed to allow access to the house battery bank to port with the inverter plus stowage to starboard. Two folding chairs for guests in the saloon.


Upholstered in cream leatherette, maintenance and access to the various 12V wiring bundles is provided by firm Velcro fasteners. Access is simply a matter of carefully unhooking the Velcro on a panel, with a specially adapted tool that ensures no damage to woodwork or upholstery.


The cabin soles have been sprayed in gloss varnish to a mirror finish, they have been buffed annually to retain the finish. The remainder of the interior varnish has been finished with a mixture of matt and gloss to a high professional standard.


Owners cabin is fwd of the saloon with the head of the bed at the mast for comfort in a seaway. There is a full-size double to port the was handcrafted by HMC, Santa Ana California, springs are powder-coated for corrosion protection, there is a thick latex pad for comfort on top and the whole mattress is hinged to give access to a huge storage area below the bed with 5 drawers under the bed.

On the port side of the master bed outboard, there is a large video/book storage area, with a flat-screen TV that hinges cleverly away new 2011 and at the foot of the bed, there is a small linen cabinet.


The owners head and shower is ensuite fwd of the master bedroom, it comprises a sink unit with updated plumbing. The Head is an electric TMC with macerator, new in 2014. This is plumbed to a Saniloo waste treatment system which treats the waste prior to discharge overboard or storage in the solid 15 gallons holding tank, which is on the forepeak side of the bulkhead. The Shower/tub unit is to port and comprises a newly plumbed high-pressure shower head over a two-level hip-bath with a shower curtain. This allows you to shower sitting down while the boat is on passage and you can have a soak in your anchorage. Outboard to starboard is stowage cabinets for toiletries and below the sink is further storage for cleaning products.


The L-shaped galley is to port and aft of the main saloon. There are massive counter spaces both inboard & outboard. There is shelving in the cabinets that provides storage for pots and pans, 1 full-sized hinge-out trash bin. The gas stove by Force 10 with 4 burners and oven below is fully gimballed with potholders for use at sea.

Broker's notes after sailing on a sister ship from San Francisco to Hawaii traveling over 2500nm in 11.5 days (racing), 8.5 days with the spinnaker flying 24 hours/day I am a believer! We were surfing at 16.8 knots while the cook prepared a 17-pound turkey dinner with all the fix ins for our ½ way party! Double digits were the norm on the knot meter. The last of these iconic cruising machines built, is seriously for sale personal inspections and offers are encouraged.
