Vessel walk-through

Entry from the cockpit is through a smoked plastic locking door leading to the salon.

A full width sliding hatch opens up the salon for superb fair weather ventilation as well as full walking headroom access to the port and starboard hull interiors.

The salon features a dinette with a solid cherry table mounted on adjustable lift. The table provides comfortable dining for 6 people and folds down when desired. Adjustable lift allows easy lowering for converting the salon area to an additional bed. The U-shaped sette surrounding the table is upholstered in dark blue striped Sunbrella removable cushions. Excellent storage beneath each of the salon seats.

Two steps on the port side and two steps on the starboard side of salon lead down into the hulls. The aft sections of both hulls contain mirror image private double cabins with full size athwartship berths.

The berths use standard fullsize double bedding with 3" high density foam mattresses.

Each sleeping cabin has a locker, storage bins and numerous opening hatches. A huge storage area is available under each bunk to stow cruising supplies.

The remainder of the port hull is devoted to the galley.

Removable cellular PVC food preparation table.

The amidships section of the starboard hull contains  a small fold out chart table, as well as the electrical panel, chart storage bin and hanging locker.

The forward section of the starboard hull leads to the private head/shower.

Head has a mirror, towel racks, storage cabinet, sink and shower with pressurized hot and cold water, and manual Jabsco toilet.
