Accommodations

The deck plan gives a good impression of her breadth and usable deck room. The cockpit and helm area is on the same level as the main weather decks and has excellent seating space and is well sheltered. The pilot house is equipped with a pilot berth, chart table and navigation equipment. The great cabin aft, across the stern, is of particular interest and should be most appealing for an extended period of living aboard. The door on the starboard side leads into a master stateroom with queen berth and head. On the port side the galley is stretched along the passage way. Forward of the pilot house is a guest berth and head. Further forward is another stateroom and head.

Galley

There is a stewards pantry at the forward end of the galley that has the freezer and refrigeration boxes that are fitted with holding plates, along with a beverage chill box at the after end of the galley also fitted with holding plates. The three boxes offer more than adequate storage for world class cruising, and are powered by one 1-horsepower compressor. The freezer easily goes to zero degrees or lower. This pantry area is fitted with storage cabinets and is easily accessed from the galley area.
