As you come down the companionway stairs you notice a nice size galley to Port. The aft head is to starboard. You can access this head either from the aft cabin or the salon. The salon table is beautifully varnished and large enough to seat the family. Above the table is working 12V ceiling fan! A Navigation station and settee are located on the starboard side. Forward is another nice size cabin with a centerline berth and a private head. The boat has a 12,000 btu AC/Reverse cycle heating system which can operate for 12 hours on the inverter. Notice the cabin sole throughout the vessel has multiple coats of varnish which gives the interior a rich and beautiful look equal to any fine yacht.
This yacht clearly is a labor of love and worth your consideration.
