A heavy transit door separates the swim platform from the cockpit, which is large enough to hold a small table and chairs. On the port side, two propane tanks are discreetly enclosed in a molded fiberglass bench. The entire cockpit has both removable privacy screens and vinyl enclosure for cold weather. An awning provides sun and rain protection. There are docking controls to starboard.
After entering from the cockpit through the watertight Dutch door you will find yourself in a comfortable salon that extends the full 14'6" of her beam. There are 4 large side windows as well as 4 opening windows aft that contribute to the feeling of spaciousness and light. To port you find a large L-shaped settee and a drop leaf table which can easily seat 6 people for dining. Directly across to starboard are two armchairs flanking a storage cabinet that has a separate bar facing the salon. Next to the Dutch door is another cabinet with a teak paneled icemaker. Adjacent to the galley, behind a teak louvered door is a freezer. The counter above is the entertainment center which boasts a flat srceen TV, DVD player and stereo. Forward, where the steps lead up to the pilothouse, is a large hanging locker.
The u-shaped galley is on the same level as the salon. This is ideal for allowing the chef to join the party while preparing a gourmet meal for guests. Quartz countertops, overhead food storage and a large double sink add to the ease of food preparation underway, at anchor or dockside.

There is a custom helm chair that allows easy movement around helm station when not in use.Two opening windows behind the settee, three front windows with windshield wipers and three windows at each side, give excellent vision while navigating. Two opening hatches and two dorade ventilators provide plenty of fresh air.

Down three steps from the salon you will find the master stateroom amidships. The walk around queen sized berth has storage and drawers beneath. A hanging locker and a linen pantry flank the head of the bed. There is a large mirror located at the side of the bed. On the forward bulkhead is a large chest of drawers. Across the walkway at the foot of the bed is the master stateroom head. This area has a large Corian counter with full storage both above and below. The head is a fresh water Vacuflush. Louvered teak doors, ceramic tiles and a large stainless portlight complete the master head. Adjacent and forward of the head is the shower. This area is large and extremely serviceable, finished in light colored surfaces for a light and airy feeling. The tiled floor and a teak shower seat make this a most usable shower both at the dock and underway.
Forward of the master stateroom you will find a guest stateroom. The large V berth has ample storage on both sides and a spacious hanging locker. The guest stateroom has its own separate entry from the pilothouse. The guest head is to starboard and mimics the layout of the main head except for the separate shower facility. A shower head can be connected to the sink faucet.
Exiting the pilothouse through the side doors allows you to go forward to the bow. A cushioned bench seat is placed beneath the front windows. Ample bulwarks topped with a sturdy rail protect you underway. At the bow you have full access to the windlass and the two self deploying anchors. A set of steps at each side of the pilothouse will allow access to the uppermost deck where you will find a Nick Jackson Dinghy Crane.
