The main saloon has pilot berths outboard to port and starboard. Storage under both berths. There is a drop leaf centerline teak table and settees port and starboard. Both settees can be used as bunks. Lee cloths on all bunks in man cabin.

The nav station is next aft to starboard and has a large chart table. Opposite is the galley with great storage and working space. Two ice boxes
