Accommodations and Galley

CABINS - Sleeps 6 - Heading forward down the companionway, the sleeping cabins are immediately to the left and right, with teak doors for privacy, that slide out of the way when open. Each cabin is equal in size, each with a double bed with custom mattress, electric fans, reading lights, your own opening port with screen, three drawers, a lighted hanging locker and room to dress in privacy. The only difference is in the starboard cabin where there is an attractive teak shelf with turned fiddles and a cabinet for more storage. In the port cabin, these have been removed for more sleeping roominess. Both cabins have pocket panels forward that can be lifted for privacy, or kept lowered for more openness, light and air.

SALON -  All new interior fabrics and well cared for teak throughtout. On the starboard side going forward is the extremely large settee (8.5'long) with storage under. This also makes into yet another double bed with a provided insert. There is a small fiddled pedestal table in the center (also with storage and a drawer inside) that can be used as a cocktail table, dinner for two with one leaf opened, or,ingeniously, for dinner for up to 6 with all the leaves open. Behind the table is attractive nook shelving and doors that open up to a rack for wine or liquor bar.

PANTRY - Still on the starboard side, forward of the settee is a pantry with vented teak doors with shelving inside for lots of provisions. On top is another fiddled shelf  .

NAV STATION - On the port side aft is the comfortable and practical nav station, with upholstered bench seat.  The table top slides in for more space, or out to accommodate full size charts. Here also are shelves and drawers for storage. Both the AC and DC electrical panels are at the chart table, as they should be.

GALLEY - Going forward from the nav station on the port side is a large top loading fridge with good insulation and new Adler Barber refrigeration.  Forward of that is the new Force 10 3 burner propane stove and oven. There you will find the galley storage, counter top and deep SS sink with  hot and cold water faucets.

HEAD - Forward of the saloon is a teak louvered door that leads into one of the most attractive and practical yacht heads you will find. It has a delightful mirror at counter top level that swivels to accommodate any height person.
