Main Salon

The interior is laid out in 4 levels, each of them stepping down as you move forward. There are two sliding doors that open into an enormous salon area which is highlighted by two built-in varnished mahogany cabinets. One cabinet is half the length of the starboard side and houses a television, stereo equipment and storage compartments. The other built-in is stair-stepped and stretches the full length of the far wall, from port to starboard, housing more cabinets and storage. Directly above that are six huge tempered glass windows looking out over the expansive lower deckhouse and bow. The decor is neutral in color and simple with a sofa, two armchairs, occasional table and lamps. The entire salon has large glass windows on all four sides making for an amazing view. There are also built-in blackout shades available for privacy. 

Lower Salon

Walking forward down the starboard steps you enter the full width lower salon which also opens to the galley on the next level down. The lower salon area has an L-shaped sofa, a glass coffee table and four small armchairs. This area could also be used as a more formal dining area. Again, the lower salon features large windows all along the starboard and port sides of the vessel. 


Continuing forward takes you down another step into the galley area featuring a built-in dining table with booth to starboard and the actual galley to port. The galley is equipped with the following:

Refrigerator Sub-Zero
Freezer Sub-Zero
Stove/Oven Frigidaire
Microwave GE
Dual Tank Stainless Sink
Added ISE Hot Water Faucet

Master Stateroom

The master stateroom is located in the aft section of the vessel and is accessed through a stairway in the main salon on the starboard side. The master stateroom features a king-sized bed, built-in drawers and cedar-lined closets. The master ensuite head has a toilet, bidet, sink and bathtub with shower. 

Guest Stateroom-Port and Starboard

The yacht continues forward and down another step into the guest quarters. There are two identical cabinets to port and starboard equipped with twin berths, built-in nightstands and cedar-lined closets. Both cabins have ensuite heads featuring showers with 3 vertically aligned heads. Both cabins have hatches to the foredeck. 

Crew Quarters

Moving forward is the final fore cabin. It is full-width and features twin bunks to port and a raised double bed to starboard. There are also built-in storage drawers and cedar-lined closets. Additionally, there is a stainless flip-down step and a hatch to the foredeck. There is a full ensuite head slightly forward of this cabin also with the same triple showered configuration. 


Entering the cockpit by way of the swim platform you walk through the transom door and are immediately delighted by the sheer beam of the yacht, over 20' wide. There are dual staircases (starboard and port) which take you from the cockpit up to the spacious teak mezzanine.
