Forward is a very spacious master stateroom with insuite head, a centerline queen berth, a bench settee with lockers under, a full sized hanging locker, and drawers under queen berth. Light and ventilation are provided by two hull ports, 2 opening ports, and two hatches. All hatches have screens and retractable shades. There are shelves outboard of the berth, brass reading lights were added, and carpeting was installed to protect the varnished sole.

Both heads have all white surfaces, easy to keep clean, sink and shower, and lockers.


The main salon features a U-shaped settee, with centerline bench seat and teak dining table between. Enormous amounts of storage are located behind and under the settees or in teak and caned lockers.  To port you have the large galley. Next aft to port is the guest head with dual access doors from salon and the port guest stateroom. Aft of the salon on the starboard side you have the Nav station.
