Description of below decks accommodation from forward:
Forward Cabin -Separated from the heads by a door. Two single berths in a V-berth formation with infill section to create a double berth. Storage provided overhead outboard with cave type lockers running the length of the berths. Large cave lockers beneath the aft end of the bunks port and starboard. Light and ventilation provided via opening deck hatch.
Heads -Located between the saloon and the forward cabin. A clever door arrangement conceals the heads and sink on the starboard side when not in use providing a passage way forward. When required the doors separate the compartment and increase the area to occupy the majority of the boats beam. Starboard side of compartment finished in a moulded lining with varnished teak trims. Moulded shower sump with electric pump out, electric flushing marine toilet, wash hand basin and vanity unit to starboard. Outboard to port a large hanging locker is provided with the shelved section aft.
Saloon -Occupying the heart of the below decks space. Bench settees outboard, port and starboard. Drop leaf table located centrally. Both settees converting to berths of a generous length, backrests can be moved and double as bunk extensions to create two double berths. Storage provided with fiddled shelves outboard of the backrests and lockers overhead.
Galley -The galley is a very clever use of the space on the port side of the elevated wheelhouse. Linear in layout the galley runs the length of the wheel house with a stainless steel finished worktop. The worktop hinges up in two sections to reveal the cooker and sink mounted below. A front loading fridge is located below the worktop forward with the cooker aft. Storage is provided outboard.
Helm Station -Benefiting from dual control station the boat can be steered from the cockpit by tiller or the internal wheel station. The skipper enjoys an excellent view from the internal helm with the overhead hatch providing ventilation and the opportunity to feel the wind in your face. A dedicated forward facing seat is provided with all instrumentation easily visible.
