The first thing to note when you step aboard the Privilege 39 is the massive T shaped cockpit space. There is a big dropleaf teak table that will easily seat 8 to starboard, with additional seating to port and a bench seat aft that spans the width of the boat. A new in 2012 Stamoid fabric bimini with full enclosure shades the table and seating area while sunning spaces with outboard port and starboard allow sun worshippers aboard a place to lounge.  New 2012 cockpit cushions in a green stripe fabric add comfort and eye appeal.
The helm is to port and aft, and the helmsman retains good visibility forward while remaining on the same level as guests and crew. Wide side decks make going forward safe and easy. Through the double teak doors in the cockpit is the salon area featuring a 15 foot circular settee with dropleaf table and a roll out beverage cabinet. The settee cushions were new in 2012.  Quality teak joinerwork and and teak and holly floors add a luxurious feel everywhere on this boat. 8 opening hatches and 11 opening ports provide excellent ventilation throughout the vessel. All the salon fixed window frames were replaced in 2012.  The Nav station is to starboard of the settee. Companionways port and starboard in the aft part of the salon lead to the hull accomodations. There are two equal double berth staterooms in the starboard hull.  Each has its own vanity and sink, hanging locker and storage The starboard companionway features an extra fridge freezer unit  and tons of storage filled with enough spares to start a marine store!. A head is located outboard at the foot of the companionway steps in each hull.

Both companionways have new flooring and all staterooms have new bedding as of 2012

The port hull accommodations feature the master stateroom forward with its own sink and vanity.  The aft stateroom in this hull has been cleverly converted to a huge walkin  shower that also houses the washer dryer unit, new in 2012 The additional space over the berth has been converted in to a large storage locker that is accessible form the cockpit just forward of the helm.

The galley is located in the port hull with a gimbaled LP range, new Dometic refrigeration, double sink, new counter tops and ample storage space.
