   Aft and to starboard is a private entry to the Head and stall shower compartment, featuring a Vacuflush freshwater W.C., fore and aft varnished teak vanity with polished stainless sink with H&C water and storage in three lockers and forward most a stall shower compartment with seat outboard (draining to a separate sump with pump).

   To port is the L-Shaped Galley with Corian counter tops with deep single basin stainless steel sink with H&C pressure water, and large top loading storage unit. Additional storage is in sliding face lockers outboard and one aft and above. Below there are two Vertifrigo dual voltage refrigeration and freezer drawers and storage in an additional locker and four drawers. Cooking is off a Force 10 3 burner propane stove with oven while smaller jobs are handled in the Panasonic Microwave.


   Up three steps (with storage under) to the Salon/Wheelhouse; to starboard there is space for free standing seating and outboard there is a built-in unit housing a pop-up TV Lift. To port is an L-shaped settee and when the table is dropped down to berth height makes a 46" in width double berth. There is top load storage under the settee.
