Starting at the Bow is the large Vee Berth with convenient shelves along both sides of the berth, large hatch over the berth and two smaller hatches over either side of the entry plus an opening port just under the hatch.  The area under the forward end of the Vee serves as a sail locker.  There is a Hanging Locker and 3 drawer Bureau on the starboard side of Entry and a Dressing Seat and cabinets to port.  

The Saloon is light and airy with an "L" shaped Dining Area to port.  The Table folds and stores against the bulkhead when not needed.  There is a straight facing Settee across on starboard long enough to serve as a single berth.  A combination of shelves and cabinets over both settees provides lots of storage.  She has 4 -12V Ceiling Lights and a 110V Lamp and a 12V Fan and Wabasko diesel heater.

The aft facing Nav Station is behind the saloon on starboard and features a large desk with 4 drawers providing a place for all of your "stuff".  The Electrical Panel is within easy reach as are VHF and SSB Radios, Chartplotter and Autopilot Remote as well as Battery Monitors.

The "U" shaped Galley is across on port with lots of storage and counter space.  She has 2 shelves with sliding doors along the hull side, a bank of 3 drawers and a cabinet under the counter.  She has a Force Ten Stove/Oven(2009), a good-sized Refrigerator and Freezer and two deep sinks.  You have a lot of room to store, prepare and feed your hungry crew. 

The well-insulated Engine Compartment is tucked under the double sinks with access on starboard and port side.  

The quarter berth is behind the Galley on port and is big enough for a couple to sleep comfortably.  It is well ventilated with 3 opening ports and an opening hatch. There is lots of storage with a full shelf along the hull side on port and a smaller shelf on starboard coupled with 2 large cabinets, 4 cubies with drop down doors at the entrance.  There is even more storage under the berth.  Built into the back of the companionway facing the berth are still more shelves and a cabinet
