  • The cockpit, over nine feet long, is spacious and wide; with the tiller lifted out of the way, there is ample room for entertaining or just quiet contemplation of a well-earned anchorage.  INCLUDES Custom cockpit cushions
  • Going forward, the two-foot wide sidedecks inspire confidence, and the foredeck is roomy enough for sail handling, sunbathing or a small inflatable dinghy.  Teak toerails provide good footing, with additional teak on the coachroof handrails and the cockpit coamings.
  • Down below, the galley  has a two burner stove and refrigeration.  .  The saloon has a table that folds up against the forward bulkhead, and this opens up the area considerably.  A small head is to port.
  • The V-berth has an insert for the "filler" to make a large and comfortable double forward berth.
  • The engine's low, amidships placement adds to the boat's stability and allows excellent access.
