The boat layout consists of four guest cabins. The owner’s suite at the stern includes a comfortable sofa with a desk on starboard and a nice vanity corner with sink on port. On the fore starboard side of the suite there’s a comfortable bathroom with a wooden masterpiece bath tub. Forward on starboard there’s the VIP guest cabin with a queen size bed and a spacious bathroom. On port there are one more bathroom and two guest cabins, each with two single beds and a vanity corner.

The center of life on board is in the open spacious area located below the entrance staircase. From there you will be led into the lounge area with the galley on starboard and the navigation station on port. In front, one will find the saloon with a brass fireplace and a piano, lighted by the decagonal skylight located in front of the mast. This area represents the state of art in wooden carpentry with marvelous wooden layered structures giving a warm feeling of perfection.

The crew’s quarters are situated at the bow of the saloon. They include two cabins, one with bunk beds and a bathroom and the other with double beds, a removable table and sofas.

All areas have air conditioning (heating & cooling).
