Walk Thru of Interior
Through the companionway, you go down three stair steps. The spacious interior provides 6’4″ headroom and is noticeably cooler due to the 1″ thick foam insulation with vinyl covering on the ceiling. Six hatches provide excellent ventillation. The U-shaped galley is aft to port and features an 8 cubic foot freezer/fridge box that was completely rebuilt with a removable divider (to convert the box to all-freezer or all-refrigeration as the need arises). The system was re-insulated from the hull in with R-40+ insulation and the SeaFrost BDxp system will keep you making ice, even at anchor. There is a three burner stove with oven. The galley has excellent light from LED’s over the stove, sink, and in the fridge, as well as natural light from 2 portholes and a hatch above. One of the portholes is a large pass through to the cockpit. Additionally the galley has extra shelving and a microwave cabinet, mesquite countertops, an undermount sink with a standard household faucet, water filters, separate drinking water faucet, and a soap dispenser.
The navigation station is starboard at the bottom of the companionway. It features a large desk with chart storage, good access to the wiring through cabinets, 440 amp hour house batteries under the nav seat, and wiring panels that are easily removed to make changes or repairs. The Garmin chartplotter provides a WiFi network to monitor or control with an iPad or iPhone. A Cat-5 cable is routed for an external WiFi booster antenna by the arch. The split backstay has an insulator and ground for an SSB. The Pioneer stereo powers two cockpit and two salon speakers and is Bluetooth ready, so you can stream music from any capable device.
Moving forward, the large portside L-shaped settee converts to a double berth, and the starboard settee has been modified to provide additional storage behind and above the seat back. Two 70 gallon fiberglass water tanks are located under each settee. The table has been removed to allow for a more open layout but can easily be reinstalled, accommodating 6-8 guests. The 50-gallon fuel tank is accessed through the sole. The salon has ambient lighting, bookshelves, a bar, 12-volt tv, speakers, 3 hatches, and a tremendous amount of storage.
The owners’ cabin features a Pullman berth to port with a step and handle to assist getting in and out. Below the berth is a 30-gallon holding tank, a pullout laundry hamper, and storage accessible either from the front or huge hinged hatch beneath the mattress. The mattress is antimicrobial latex with a Tufted Topper, both in excellent condition. To starboard are two large hanging lockers, 3 drawers, and cubbies. We have installed a standard household 6,000 BTU window-unit air conditioner which can be run on a 2000 watt generator (not included). A large hatch over the berth keeps it cool at anchor and provides an excellent view of the stars. We also run the A/C when we are not cruising to keep mildew at bay. A shower sump is located beneath the sole.
Forward of the berth is the head with a separate seated shower in the fore peak. Custom teak flooring allows the water to drain beneath rather than getting tracked all over the boat. There are two enormous cabinets as well as storage beneath the counter, chain access through the removable shower seat, with the chain and rope locker forward. The head has both a porthole and a hatch. LED strip lighting flanks the vanity mirror.
