Accommodations

The spacious galley is to starboard, with lots of storage above and below the counter. To starboard is the aft cabin, accessed through a door just forward of the companionway.  The double berth is comfortable for two. The mattress on the hull side extends to become the seat for the chart table.  Chart table has storage below. The upper section of the forward bulkhead opens into the salon, behind the dinette,  creating an open feel.   The salon has a U-shaped settee to port with a good size dining table. To starboard there are 2 seats that face each other,  with a breakfast/cockpit table table between.  The table can drop down and has a filler cushion that allows it to be used as a single berth.

Forward of the mast compression post, to port is the door into the head which has a separate shower.  Opposite the head, is a large hanging locker. The V-berth has storage compartments down each hull as well as below the bunk.  A seat on the starboard side serves as a step up and filler cushion can be inserted to increase the size of the berth.
