Main deck includes a spacious aft deck including work bench, an outside dining area, a salon with open galley, formal dining areas port and starboard and an entertainment center.

Below decks on the port side are two guest cabins, with vanity, a shared head and stall shower and book cases mounted on outer hull.
Upon entering the yacht from the aft deck, the nearly 27' beam becomes readily apparent. Even with ample walk-around side decks, one feels as if he/she is aboard a much larger yacht.

Immediately on the left upon entering the salon is the staircase which is the primary access to the pilothouse.
Port and starboard forward are two dinettes with plenty of seating.

Below is a multi-drawer cabinet holding an easily-accessed selection of tools.
