LIZZIE is a traditional Raised Deck Salon featuring a beautiful spacious salon, great natural light and comfortable accommodations. To port is the oval dinning table with wrap around seating, to starboard a settee. Several opening ports and overhead hatches provide good light and ventilation. The new 46’ flat screen is mounted against the forward bulkhead. The large Nav. Station is aft and to port with forward facing desk, armed swivel seat, access to the main AC panel, all electronics, radios and excellent storage. The passageway galley to starboard includes a new Induction cook top and Convection microwave. The under counter Splendid Washer/Dryer is also located in the galley, keeping all work duties in one location. Continuing aft the Master suite is bright and well light with natural light.  Six opening port lights and an overhead hatch provide plenty of ventilation. The master suite has good storage everywhere you look.

Moving forward from the main salon the third cabin is to port with over/under bunks and a reasonable amount of storage.  Across from the third cabin is the second head with stand alone shower.  Access to this head is via two entry doors.  The one adjacent to the third cabin and the one from the forward VIP cabin.  The VIP cabin all the way forward has great storage, large hanging lockers, good ventilation and a centerline queen berth.  This layout provides perfect separation for additional cruising partners or weekend guests.

The overall condition of the interior is well above average due in part to her history of mainly fresh water sailing.
