There is a forward and an aft companionway from the cockpit.

The aft companionway descends into the aft cabin which has a large berth, with storage below and on either side of the cabin.  A head, with separate shower, basin and head, is on the port side and a small settee with lockers and access to the walk-through are on the starboard side.

The walkthrough has a long counter on the outboard side, with storage above and below.  Batteries are in one compartment, water heater in another and electrical panel above. Access to the engine compartment is inboard and under the cockpit. 

Nav station has a pivoting chair and a small front-loading  fridge in place of aft storage.  Instruments are arranged at eye-level and above.  The galley is to port. It is U-shaped with lots of storage above and below counter level.

The salon consists of a U-shaped dinette to port, with a centerline solid teak table with leaves that fold up to reach settees on either side of the salon. The starboard settee is straight and butts up against a storage cabinet which houses the airconditioning unit.

A door in the forward bulkhead opens to a vestibule with the head to port, more storage to starboard and the spacious v-berth in the bow.  There is access to the anchor locker at the foot of the v-berth.
