The layout offers berths for up to 7/8 individuals with two separate double cabins. There is full standing headroom and good ventilation throughout. All external hatches may be secured from the inside with either pins or securable lines; both the saloon and after stateroom have reversible A/C units. Upholstered with velvet honey colored fabric, accented with satin varnished mahogany solid and multi-ply bulkheads and trim.

Forecabin: Large V-berth with ample storage and a hatch to the foredeck; this cabin can be converted into a three sleeper cabin with a double to port and single to starboard. Forward of this cabin is access to the bow thruster; aft is the head with shower, wash basin and marine toilet to port and a large hanging locker to starboard. This is followed by the second watertight bulkhead with gasketed door which leads to the main saloon.

Saloon: Situated amidships, there is a U-shaped settee and table (can seat up to 10) to port, and a bench settee to starboard which can be converted into a single birth with lee board.  There are a number of lockers and storage areas above the seating area, under and behind the settees and below the sole with a selectable 24v freezer/fridge under the port settee.

Galley: Aft of this common area is the U-shaped galley to port and the nav station along with a large hanging locker with drawers to starboard. The companionway ladder to the cockpit is amidships. The fully equipped galley includes:  Two-burner gimballed cooker with Eno oven; 220 v. dishwasher; freestanding, side opening fridge/freezer (2016); top opening selectable fridge/freezer; 220v washing machine; 220v microwave (2016); and a full complement of kitchen utensils and accessories.

Owner's Cabin: Aft of the navigation station is the passageway to the aft, ‘owner’s’ cabin.  Outboard of the passageway to starboard is a single birth under which are the batteries. The entrance to the aft cabin is through another watertight bulkhead with gasketed door. The aft cabin has a queen bunk to port, and cushioned sitting area with desk/vanity & swing-out stool to starboard. There is lots of storage space, complete with safe, and an en-suite head with shower, washbasin, and electric marine toilet (new motor 2016).

On deck, there is deep center cockpit with a stationary helmsman chair which converts into a table. Hard dodger with opening, tinted plexi-glass windows (2016) which affords excellent visibility as well as good ventilation; electric, self-tailing winches for the various sheets; cockpit shower; and an enormous storage area under the port cockpit seat. On the transom, a stainless steel integrated arch with dinghy davits, wind generator(s) and solar panel (2016). There are two obsolete wind generators. A huge rear, partitioned lazarette provides storage for gas bottles (vented) and other deck related items.  

Mechanical Systems

Engine: The engine room is totally self-contained as one of the vessels water tight compartments and is located under the cockpit. It is accessed from the cockpit via a hydraulic operated, gasketed hatch. Down two steps, there is excellent access to the four cylinder Volvo Penta TMD 22B (4,500 hrs), rebuilt January 2022. The engine is facing forward with the power train going first to an angle drive transmission then down the aft end of the keel to another angle drive and thence exiting the keel through a bearing to the Autoprop feathering propeller (2017). Freshwater cooled via heat exchanger. Single lever Morse control. 600 l fuel tank. 

Generator: Onan 6.5kv (3,500 hrs); water maker; A/C unit; and hot water heater. The 24 v/50 l/h watermaker (rebuilt 2016) can be run by power-sharing from the wind/solar systems without the generator. The hot water heater may be run from either the main engine or 220v (recommend replacement next year because of a small leak).

Bow Thruster: Located aft of the forward water tight bulkhead is the Amel retractable bow thruster with spare propeller.
