Starting forward and aft of the anchor locker is a V-berth style stateroom with two single berths/port and starboard. There is an insert to fill in the "V" and make a traditional shared single. There is a large overhead sliding hatch in the salon to provide light and ventilation. There are shelves over and lockers under the berths. A hanging locker is aft to starboard.  To port there many small custom drawers for parts and such.

Moving aft there is a large head to port with sink, shower and large storage lockers. To starboard opposite the head is a large utility locker that currently houses a 110v microwave (2016) and toaster oven (2019) with exhaust fan.

This table can be dropped and converted to a large double bunk with interior matching gray insert.  To starboard is a pilot berth and a double pull-out transom berth with shelves outboard, and nine large drawers under.
