Interior Layout.
The companionway to starboard spirals down to a spacious salon filled with rich teak, ornate carvings and rattan accents with enormous storage space. An inside steering console and engine controls are to starboard. A U-shaped settee with oval inlaid teak table is to port. The table drops transforming the settee into a guest berth. Engine access is provided below the salon teak deck. Aft of the salon down two half steps is the Master Stateroom with a double berth to starboard, a single settee to port, ample hanging locker and drawers abound. A teak pocket door affords privacy. Forward of the salon down two half steps is the navigation station to starboard, where the electrical breaker panel is mounted, a full size chart table with ample drawers and cabinets for navigation charts and supplies. Forward is an L-shaped galley to port with an under-counter refrigerator/freezer, large insulated icebox with top access, double stainless sink, fresh and saltwater supplied by foot pumps. Energy efficient electrical appliances with a gimbaled-mount compact microwave, countertop magnetic induction cooktop, grill and an induction oven. The galley has ample storage and is well outfitted. Forward is the head and shower to starboard. The head features a natural composting toilet that produces no discharge. Waste is segregated, processed and held for disposal ashore as trash. A designer mirror, stainless sink with fresh water supplied by foot pump complete the head. The shower offers a handheld wand, with fresh water supplied by foot pump with ample storage cabinets. Forward up one half step are pantry drawers and cabinets to port with generous space for provisions and a butterfly hatch overhead. Forward up one half step is the forward stateroom with a Pullman berth to starboard, writing desk to port, and ample hanging storage and drawers. The master stateroom, salon and galley have recessed LED light ribbon on separate dimmers to provide safety lighting at sea and ambiance at anchor. Custom salon glass is tempered for safety and tinted for privacy.

Deck Layout.
The traditional double ender design is well known for safety and sea kindliness. High freeboard provides tremendous reserve buoyancy and resistance to breaching seas for a high and dry safe ride. A stainless bow pulpit mounts navigation lights 10 feet above the waterline for excellent visibility. It supports two anchors on stainless rollers. An electric windlass handles both chain and rope. A dinghy is securely carried on the foredeck while cruising. A pressure demand saltwater wash down station is provided at the bow. The self-tacking staysail is rigged to a spinnaker pole which serves as a boom sailing on the wind or can be changed to a whisker pole for downwind sailing. Halyards, vangs and reefing lines terminate at the mast where 5 winches handle all tasks. Belaying pins port and starboard provide secure storage for working lines. Wide positive grip decks and long handrails make moving around this vessel at sea easy and safe. Cockpit seats are finished with Sea Dek for comfort and safety. Five winches are available in the cockpit for sail control. The helmsman seated on an elevated platform has full view of every thing on deck. There is excellent visibility all around. A drop down fly leaf table turns the cockpit into a comfortable dining room or lounge at the end of the day. Marine grade bean bags above and below deck provide comfortable seating anywhere.
