Two private staterooms fore and aft, forward stateroom features double berth with lockers outboard with two hanging lockers to starboard and forward head with toilet, sink and shower.
The main salon has a U-shaped settee to port with settee berth to starboard and generous locker storage outboard both port and starboard. The port settee berth converts to accommodations for two when the backrest is engaged as a second Pullman berth.
To starboard is the nav station with armchair navigator's seat and table facing forward with a full array of navigational gear above. Going aft to port is the passageway to the owner's cabin aft. Outboard along the passageway is a wet hanging locker and then an ingenious housing for the ship's independent generator. On the inboard side of the passageway are two large doors making for unusually good access to the engine room.
In the aft cabin there is a full king on centerline with lockers and shelves outboard. Along the port side of the standing area are two hanging lockers while the port side houses the owner's full head with separate stall shower. The aft cabin is uncommonly generous for a boat of this size, compliments of bulkheads that do not run perpendicular to the hull, but at angles, allowing for very effective utilization of the vessel's interior volume.
