DUENDE’s fully enclosed pilothouse provides welcome comfort in any climate. 
On mild days, the removable clear plastic glass opens all around to the surrounding beauty and fresh ocean breeze. 
This well-appointed area has three convenient fold down tables that seat up to ten guests for dinner.

The master stateroom (below deck aft amidship) is aft of the guest staterooms. The master
stateroom is appointed in Danish teak with indirect lighting above, mounted light on either side above the queen size berth, overhead lighting, 2 large GOIOT hatches and 2 small hatches in the aft cabin. 

The master stateroom also has port and starboard hanging lockers w/couches
on either side of the custom berth. The master bathroom sits on the starboard side with a vanity and built-in chair.

The guest staterooms feature a single upper and double lower berth and are also appointed in
Danish teak with ensuite heads and showers. 

The main salon’s entrance is to starboard of the pilothouse and down a four-step curved
staircase. On the port side is a semi-circular settee with a permanently mounted formal teak
dining table. Opposite to starboard are two lounge chairs with a table between which contains
a hide-away television set with VCR. 

Behind and hidden in a teak cabinet is an ice maker, liquor locker, storage and various electronics. 
The main salon is carpeted with ¼” recessed carpeting over teak sole throughout and there  are large viewing windows to allow natural light inside.

Aft of the salon and proceeding down four steps is a passageway between the matching guest
staterooms, port and starboard.

Crew quarters, which feature a V-berth and ensuite head and shower, are forward of the galley, and may be separated from the guest quarters by closing the door between the galley and the main salon.

There is separate access for the crew provided via a hatch and custom ladder in the galley,
affording the owner/guest uninterrupted privacy.
