Below decks is well appointed with berths for 6 persons over the saloon and forward cabin. The first thing that grabs you is the quality of the wood and how bright and welcoming she is. This is further enhanced when seated on the well upholstered settees. You can imagine spending quality time with family and friends between sails. She also benefits from Webasto diesel fired heating which adds further comfort in colder weather and extends the useable boating season. Her fit out is moulded GRP units finished in cream flow coat. Teak veneered bulkheads with solid wood furniture and trim. Smart teak and holly flooring in great condition. The steps down into the saloon are part of the engine bay housing. Immediately to starboard is the forward-facing chart table. Here you will find a multi-function 12V switch panel, chart reading light, DSC VHF, speed and depth instruments, radar, and GPS/plotter. The chart desk is angled for comfort and has chart storage below. The seat is the forward end of the comfortable quarter berth.
