As you enter down the center companionway you are struck by the image of a huge salon (furthered by a bulkhead mounted mirror forward) .On the left you find the large galley with three burner gas stove, double stainless steel sink, 8 cubic foot refrigerator and plenty of counter space. On the right is the open 6 passenger dinette with beautiful new upholstery. as we walk forward there are settees port and starboard all with new upholstery and rich teak book shelves/ cabinets surrounding. Going further forward on the left is the guest head with Lavac toilet and more teak cabinets. Across from the guest head we find the starboard guest stateroom with newly upholstered over and under convertible berths and closet ( could be used as a work room for the industrious). Then forward again we find the V- berth with it's hanging locker and storage beneath the bunks. The interior of Carrie May is beautifully finished and looks almost brand new. Going aft from the salon over the teak parkay sole we find the navigation station on the left with large chart and manual storage . Across from the nav station are double door access to the huge engine room. Next to that is a tall pantry closet adjacent to the door to the master stateroom. Entering the stateroom we face the transverse queen bed with storage all around behind finished cabinet doors. There is a hanging locker to our left and a large shelved closet to the left of that. Turn to your right into the master head, large with a macerator head (with keyed lock-out) and bidet. A large tub with shower is again to our right and has a door for further access to the engine room. Leaving the head, on our left is the stacked washer and dryer hidden in a teak cabinet.
