Vessel Walkthrough

(2 Cabin / 2 Head)

Starting forward is a double/V berth cabin with storage underneath and drawers below the bed and a vanity with drawers and hanging closet to starboard.  Opposite is the forward ensuite head with aft facing toilet with access to the separate shower stall with solar light by a cabin door.

The main salon is directly off the forward cabin, which has two opposing settees surrounding a fold down dining table with internal storage. Outboard to port and starboard above the settees are cupboards and shelved units.  The starboard settee can be pulled out as required to become an additional over-under double berth.

Aft of the dining area to port is the L shaped galley.  The stove / oven is to port with the double sinks facing aft.  The fridge/freezer is to starboard opposite the galley.  The microwave is to port over large off-shore plastics recepticle.

In the aft cabin to starboard of the companionway steps is the forward-facing navigation station.  There is a shelf forward with dual 120v outlets, VHF radio and additional storage below the chart table. 

Entrance to the aft cabin through the completely enclosed isinglass/canvas center cockpit is via a separate hatch aft.  To port is the ensuite head/shower with hand basin.  Opposite the steps is a large hanging locker with additional drawers.  The aft berth is a double queen size offset pullman style berth.  Drawer storage is below the berth with hatches providing access to the steering quadrant and emergency steering tiller.
