This provides a comfortable and spacious seating area around 3-sides of the saloon.
The keel case is mostly hidden by a wooden double-leaved folding table. Thanks to the short coachroof and flush foredeck, headroom forward of the galley is over 5', but there is 6' plus headroom in the galley and heads. The double aft cabin is large and roomy.
