In the saloon there is a settee to starboard and seating around the large fold down table to port. Behind this area to port is a good sized sea-berth for one.

Quite a large area here and current owner stores all manner of items he needs to keep at hand. Opposite here is the seperate head and shower arrangment. Forward again and you enter the good sized Vee berth.

As you can see from the inventory above, there have been many recent and not so recent upgrades to this yacht. The reason being, the owner has been sailing some of the more outer recahes of our seas and he wanted to make sure everything was in order to enable safe passages. The boat presents well and has returned from her many and varied travels in good order. Being a center cockpit yacht, this will give new owners the comfort that they are aboard a strong yacht equipped to take on new adventures.
