About this Sailboat:

The forward companionway comes down to the saloon between the nav station and galley. The U shaped galley is to port. Just forward of the galley is a large L shaped settee. Forward of the settee is a bulkhead mounted table that folds down and out for dinner. Opposite, on the starboard side of the saloon are 2 fixed seats with a drop down table between them. The drop down table reveals the liquor locker. Just aft of the starboard saloon seats is a proper, forward facing nav station with fixed seat.

Just aft of the nav station is a walkthrough to the owner’s aft stateroom. In the walkthrough is access to a very large engine room with a standup workbench opposite against the hull.

The owner’s berth is athwartships aft. The owner’s head and shower is just forward to port.

Forward of the saloon to port is the day/guest head with doors open to the saloon and guest stateroom. The guest stateroom features a huge vee berth.
