Upon boarding the boat, the first distinctive feature is her synthetic teak flooring on the decks, however unlike natural teak wood, her decks look great without the constant maintenance of natural teak. Also unlike natural teak, these decks do not get extremely hot in the sun.
The pilothouse/cockpit is centrally located and offers excellent 360-degree visibility for the helmsman, as well as a fully protected area for the captain and guests. There is also a good amount of protected space on-deck aft of the pilothouse.
A stairway leads from the pilothouse to the rich wood-trimmed salon. A full U-shaped Galley is to port, and a curved dinette is to starboard. Aft of the Dinette, on starboard side, is the Nav Station, which is quite complete, and the electrical panel within easy reach.
Access to the aft cabin is through a workshop area, aft of the Galley, on port side. This work area includes a counter and numerous storage lockers and drawers. The aft cabin is a very private cabin with a large king berth and private head /shower.
Forward of the Salon is the large forward cabin and private head w/ shower. This is not a V-berth, but rather has a comfortable square king berth. This cabin also contains a private settee and head.
There is an additional Crew/Guest cabin forward with a V-berth that sleeps 2 additional guests. This cabin can be accessed through a sliding door forward of the Berth in the forward cabin, or from an overhead hatch on the foredeck. This Crew/Guest cabin near the bow of the boat can be used as a crew cabin, additional guest cabin, or storage. There is a separate chain locker forward of this cabin with deck access.
Work room: A convenient workroom is between the Salon (aft of the Galley) and Master Cabin, along the port side of the vessel. This not only provides a companionway separating the master suite from the Salon, but also contains a functional work bench and numerous storage drawers and lockers for tools, spare parts and addition provisions. It is lit and ventilated by side ports. The teak parquet floor extends through this area as well, and all of the hull sides and interior walls are finished in rich woods.

Rich woods cover the hull sides and make up the overhead beams in the traditional design of the interior. There is abundant storage shelving, and additional storage under the dinette seating.
