Under its current / first ownership Northern Rose has been used exclusively for day sailing here in Brooklin, Maine. Reflecting this intended use the interior accommodations are simple and straight forward with little in the way of unnecessary extras. That being said there is just enough in the way of accommodations and features to allow for the occasional over-night or weekend aboard in relative comfort.
Coming down the companionway from the cockpit there is a simple galley space to port and an open / wet locker space to starboard. Next forward is the main saloon area with settee berths port and starboard, shelf space above and out board of the settees and a bulkhead mounted table that folds down to provide dining space for up to four people. The galley and main saloon areas are nicely finished off in the Herreshoff style of white painted bulkheads and joinery accented by satin varnished mahogany trim. The cabin sole is teak board left (bare) natural finished and the area is well lit and ventilated by four bronze opening ports (with screens) in the cabin sides.
Going forward from the main saloon one enters the forwards cabin. This space has been left mostly open at this time but there is a raised platform forward underneath of which is housed a 35 gallon water supply tank and forward of which is the storage area for anchor chain and rode. As in the main saloon area there are (two) bronze opening ports in the cabin sides to provide for light and ventilation and the cabin sole is teak board left (bare) natural. When first designed and drawn by Joel White this boat was to be equipped with a galley stove, galley sink, ice box cold storage, a fresh water system plumbed for (manually pumped) supply and (overboard discharge) drain and a manually operated fixed head. With the exception of a galley sink none of these features are currently installed aboard Northern Rose but there is the space and design work already done for installation either by a boat yard or the skilled amateur
