||V Berth, Double Aft cabin, 3/4 salon, pipe cot salon
The V-berth is 2.2m long x 1.9m wide at the pillows. 4 lockers are above the bed and large storage areas underneath.
There is a large head containing a toilet and shower on the port side with hanging space opposite and more lockers.
The salon is very roomy - 6 people can comfortably sit around the table for a meal.
One settee converts to a ¾ bed, the other to a single which we use as a sea berth in view of its proximity to the nav station and the cockpit hatch.
There is also a small pilot berth above the starboard settee. The nav desk is opposite and measures 100cm x 60cm and holds full-sized charts folded.
The bunk in the aft cabin measures 2m x 1.4m (at the pillows). There is room for dressing, storage underneath the bunk and a full size hanging locker.
The aft toilet has been removed. The confined space made it not very practical to use. The skin fittings are still in situe and a toilet can easily be reinstalled. Otherwise, the skin fittings would be useful for installing a watermaker. The area is now a storage/junk room.
The cockpit is large but very safe at sea, and we have had 10 plus people for sundowners. There is an enormous cockpit locker. The steering station has sculptured seats which provide a very comfortable area when sailing. There is a cocktail table and a removable dining table seating 4-6 people for al fresco dining.
There is a hot and cold shower in the cockpit for use after a swim.
The interior has extensive teak panelling which is regularly varnished. The flooring is also varnished. The upholstery was redone in Sunbrella fabric of light blue with a coral coloured fleck which suits the boat perfectly being light and setting off the timberwork nicely.

||Major rewiring of Speranza took place in 2002. Many wires that went nowhere were removed and other wiring replaced. A new circuit board was constructed with new circuit breakers.
A "Bantech" smart charger was installed for the shore power. It "floats" the incoming charge to meet the demands on the battery bank.
In 2012, we replaced all the batteries. We now have 4 x "Acdelco" 97ah dry-cell batteries as the house bank.
These are attached to 2 battery switches which enable 1,2,3 or 4 batteries to be brought on line.
There is a also an "Acdelco" dry-cell starter battery. It is fed through a valve switch which is triggered when 12.8 volts is generated. There are a series of isolator switches which enable all 5 batteries to be linked.
New engine alternator in 2010. It is a " Bosch" 120ah model which we were told is the highest rating alternator to run on a single drive belt.
There is a single "Sony" 150 watt high-tech solar panel which can be isolated from the rest of the electrical system.
The electrical status is monitored by a "Pulstronic" Battman system. This measures the input and output of the electrical system. At normal cruising, we use about 40-50 ah per day.
There are 3 cigarette outlet plugs on the boat (one in the cockpit).
There is a 300w inverter on board and a smart charger which tricks the alternator into producing maximum power.
