Large double berth in bow and additional double berth below the sole. Toilet compartment with marine head and shower. Two large opening roof hatches fitted with blackout and mosquito screens.

Immaculate inside and out.

Accommodation

The main saloon is entered from the cockpit via a triple leaved sliding door. This feature really opens up the saloon to feel like an extension to the cockpit. The wheelhouse is bright with large side windows and a one-piece panoramic screen. Two large hatches in the wheelhouse let in lots of natural light and ventilation.The upholstery is covered in a neutral beige fabric. These can be removed for cleaning. There is a U-shaped seating area to port which will accommodate 4 people with space to spare. Good level of storage under the aft seat. Opposite is the galley with wooden bi-folding countertop which raises to reveal a 2-burner gas hob and stainless steel sink with pressurised hot and cold water. Excellent storage cupboards below for provisions. Forward of the galley is the helm. Beneath the helm seat is the front opening fridge with separate ice compartment.
2-steps down from the sallon and you enter the sleeping quarters. In the bow is a large offset double set against a mirrored bulkhead. There are large panoramic windows on either side of the hull which let in natural light reflected of the water. There is a pull across privacy curtain. Opposite is a dressing seat/bench with storage below. Aft beneath the saloon seating is a large double berth with 12V reading light and opening port into the saloon. This also has a privacy curtain.
Forward of the helm is the heads compartment with marine toilet, moulded sink unit with pressurised hot and cold mixer tap and shower pump out. Opening port for ventilation. Privacy curtain to the porthole.
The interior is in excellent condition and overall the vessel has been lightly used. Full curtain package including windscreen. 220V socket.
