Accommodation :

Below decks is a delight and the interior gives the sensation of a much larger craft. This is thanks mainly to the generous beam and 6'6" headroom. This is the two cabin version giving two generous cabins at the rear and in the bow. The Heads is aft of the forward facing chart table.
The joinery is superb with warm coloured East African mahogany cabinet work and contrasting smart cream seating with cream upholstery and blue stripe back rests. The floor is teak and holly laminated panels adding a touch of class. There is a large saloon table with a drop leaf to port. Plentiful storage in the hull mounted cupboards above the saloon seating. There is also storage both beneath and behind the settee/berths making extended periods afloat a reality.
The well-equipped galley is to port of the companionway steps. This has plentiful work surfaces and again, great storage. The gimballed, gas-fuelled oven has a two burner hob. The large capacity top loading fridge has such a range of temperature it can freeze cans of pop easily. Stainless steel double sink with mixer tap. Water heated by engine or calorifier.
Opposite the galley is the chart table with forward facing seat. This area features chart storage and fronted cubby hole storage. Also situated here are the 12/240V switch panel, VHF radio and Webasto Airtop heating control.
The spacious aft cabin has a large double berth, cupboard units with shelved storage and hanging space, 12V lighting and an opening deck hatch for ventilation.
Owner's cabin in the bow has a large V-berth, His and hers storage cupboards/hanging space to port and starboard and additional hull mounted storage units, 12V lighting and a large deck hatch for natural light and ventilation.
Heads compartment is situated to starboard of the companionway steps. This has a sea toilet with a black tank, sink unit with storage below and a pullout shower faucet with shower pump out. Clever use of mirrors increases perceived size in what is already a generous space. Wet locker.
