Entry to the salon is from the Cockpit through a single, large Diamond/Sea Glaze dutch-opening door. The sole is beautiful teak and holly with extensive area carpeting. To starboard are two built-in barrel chairs with built-in cabinets. Located in the forward cabinet is the washer/dryer. All seating in the salon is luxurious green leatherette, accompanied by a high/low table with birds-eye maple. There are very large windows both port and starboard in addition to 4 windows in the aft bulkhead. There are designer fabric window treatments, woven wood shades, and designer throw pillows.
The U-shaped galley is located in the forward port side of the salon. Appointments include:
Staterooms and Heads
The master stateroom is located all the way forward and features a queen centerline berth, hanging locker, generous storage throughout, a large opening hatch, four opening ports, and an ensuite head.
The head includes a separate Corian & tile stall shower with two opening ports. A Head Hunter toilet, Kohler fixtures and Corian vanity sit atop a beautiful marble sole.
The portside guest stateroom contains twin athwart-ship berths, a hanging locker, cabinets and shelves, and 3 opening ports. There is also a pull-out desk so that the stateroom can double as an office.
The guest head is across from the guest stateroom on the starboard side and features a Head Hunter toilet, Corian counter, Kohler fixtures and a tiled sole. There is also a shower with a teak fold-down seat and an opening port.
The pilothouse, with its commanding view, is up from the main salon and has the look and feel of a small ship. The 3 reverse raked windows reduce sun glare and the effect of rain and spray on visibility. The two opening windows on the bulkhead behind the watch berth, two large overhead Lewmar hatches, and the sliding Diamond/Sea Glaze side doors with screen inserts provide plenty of ventilation. The pilothouse is extremely well laid-out and allows for the effective use of the extensive inventory of navigation equipment from the mounted helm chair. The tan leatherette watch berth with designer throw pillows also pulls out to form a double berth with a drop-leaf table.
