Below, the ladder had a generous 60-degree slope and side rails kept one's feet from sliding off when heeled. The interior was light and airy with double staterooms fore and aft. The cabin ports opened. Double berths and the inboard end of the J sprit occupy a portion of the forward stateroom; however, given the interiors of most 40-foot race boats, this cruiser/racer had very nice accommodations. The two main cabin settees were long and straight, and could easily function as sea berths with lee cloths in place. While the galley is compact, it is very adequate and the six-cubic-foot icebox is bigger than on many boats. An Origo non-pressurized alcohol stove with oven is standard. The stove gimballed well and was equipped with a protection bar. The stove/oven is current removed for "race" mode.
