As with the majority of Scandinavian built boats, both the cabinet work and insulation is superb. The boat is extremely comfortable from the well-upholstered berth cushions and angle of saloon upholstery. The interior was given a makeover in 2006 when all cushions were covered in a soft velour type material in mid-blue. This enhances the teak and mahogany woodwork and compliments the attractive tartan carpets and curtains.
The wheelhouse can be entered from either side of the wheelhouse by sliding doors. The panoramic views make this a very pleasant place to sit while on passage or at anchor. There is seating to the rear either side of the aft cabin entrance and an occasional table to port for having a cup of tea or doing the crossword.
The helm position is central allowing all-round visibility. Large sliding roof hatch allows extra light and ventilation on warm days. Chart storage to the port of helm with perspex chart holder.
Moving aft is the owners cabin with double berth, reading lights, ensuite head, and plentiful storage. Both the sea toilets were replaced in 2018 with Jabsco twist and lock models.
Forward of the wheelhouse is the main saloon with well upholstered seating to port and linear galley to starboard. Seating area converts to a large double or can be used as a single. There is storage in hull mounted cupboards and beneath the settees. The galley has a Plastimo Neptune 4500 stainless steel gas-fueled oven with separate grill and 2-burner hob. There is a Vitrifrigo front opening fridge with separate ice compartment and a stainless steel sink with drainer and hot and cold pressurised water mixer tap. The cooker, fridge, sink unit and worktop were all replaced in 2017. Lots of cupboard storage for provisions.
Moving forward is the Heads compartment to port with new Jabsco toilet. The interior has been re-lined with plastic cladding and a new shower sump pump installed. Opposite heads is a large hanging locker.
In the bow is the front cabin with V-berth. This can be used as two singles or with the addition of an infill can be made into a large double. Opening deck hatch for ventilation, 12v lighting and port lights with curtains.
There have been several modifications made to the boat. These include lighting inside all cupboards, 3-pin socket fronts, new 12V spotlights, LED lighting, cabin switches and a new Webasto diesel fired heating system.

Engine & Electrics:
Vessel is powered by an inboard Ford 2712E, 90hp workhorse.
Although original, this unit has been well maintained, and there is no reason why will not give many more years of good service.
This is a low revving engine and will cruise all day happily at 6-7 knots. Even at top speed of 7-8 knots she is very economical. The engine is housed beneath the wheelhouse floor in a sound proofed box.
The position of the engine allows easy access to all areas making servicing and daily checks very easy indeed.
Most recent service was in 2018.
The vessel has 2x108 litre plastic tanks. These along with new deck fillers and pipework were installed in 2018.
Lower helm is situated in wheelhouse with full engine instrumentation including rev counter, oil pressure, temperature and charging. An additional NASA Target volt meter was installed in 2018.
There are a total of six batteries fitted to the vessel. three cover engine start and domestic power, a further two look after the bowthruster and the remaining battery is linked to the inverter.
All batteries have been replaced during present ownership and are between one and three years old.
Batteries are recharged via the engine alternator, the onboard battery charger or solar panels. There is a 1000W inverter for use when at sea or in an area with no dock power.
Exterior helm features a stainless steel wheel, Single lever morse control, compass, bowthruster joystick and additional DSC VHF radio.
