Underneath the starboard countertop is a Stainless Steel automatic internal lighted freezer controlled by an opening top or door. Additionally, the refrigerator box opens from the front. The refrigerator and freezer have large capacity plates which were built to be easily removed for future servicing. 

There are 2-deep stainless steel sinks, fully gimbaled stove and generous counter space. Overhead cabinets have a moveable peg system, which allows you to custom fit spaces inside to the size and shape of your dishes. Over the galley is a large opening hatch for light and ventilation, also, there are two opening ports over the stove area for added ventilation. 

Directly across from the galley, to starboard, is a proper offshore, forward facing navigation station and chart table with tremendous room for an exceptional compliment of navigation and electronic equipment for easy use while navigating. The large nav table/desk has a generous storage locker under the desk top and room for the additional electronic navigation and communication equipment outboard. The nav seat is contoured for ease of use underway and the electrical panel is flush mounted here, on a swing-out door for easy access. Overhead are two additional opening ports for excellent cross ventilation with the galley and Nav area.

Just aft of the nav station and to starboard of the companionway, are 2 huge lockers, one a pantry with shelf top lockers, which provides a tremendous amount of space for provisions, the next is a large full length, wet locker, with a hidden lockable gun safe/locker. There is a teak grate built into the teak and holly floor at the bottom of the companionway, to catch water from wet gear. With the wet locker and teak draining grate, which drains to the bilge, all foul weather gear is kept aft and away from the main living quarters. All locker doors are ventilated. At the bottom of the companionway stairs is additional storage behind bottom two steps.

Next, to port is the owners aft cabin. There is a custom made (by Handcraft Mattress Co) queen sized berth with a centerline folding hinge with 2 large drawers, locker with removable shelf and enclosed storage locker, as well as ample book storage and large teak framed mirror, mounted on the bulkhead. The aft stateroom also has excellent ventilation provided by two opening ports and an opening hatch overhead. 

There are 11 Stainless steel opening ports with screens and 5 opening deck hatches, plus the companionway hatch, with screens, which provides a tremendous amount of light and superior cross ventilation. There are also 2 dorade vents, one over the head and one over the chart table. Below deck ventilation far surpasses the standards in the industry. There are light colored curtains at the ports for privacy, interior cushions are a blue-green, durable velour, reupholstered in 1998.

ABOVE DECK, DECK HARDWARE & SAFETY:
The topsides of This yacht, features a large unobstructed deck and cabin top. Safe & secure deck work is ensured with raised bulwarks, double fastened, extra heavy stanchion bases with double lifelines, full length teak handrails on coachroof and heavy stainless steel mast guards. Included with the purchase of the boat are six custom fitted fuel tanks that fit snugly inside the mast guards. Also note, there are custom Sunbrella covers for mast guard and fuel tank.

The large and comfortable cockpit is self bailing with oversized scuppers, designed for heavy weather sailing. All lines are led aft to cockpit for safety and ease of sail handling (the exception being flying the spinnaker).Excellent visibility from all positions is consistent with the proven offshore capability that the sailing world expects from a serious bluewater yacht.

The mast is keel stepped and in 1997, the mast was removed and foreshortened, to provide an elevated step to eliminate corrosion potential. In addition, in 1997, a new custom made Stainless Steel mast collar was fabricated with two S.S. tangs to provide additional stiffness to the deck. At the same time, a new larger & thicker stern chainplate fitting was fabricated (all of these improvements were done, not out of necessity, but to make the mast and rigging as bulletproof as possible) and all bolts, tangs, cleats, stoppers, winch and other mast fittings were rebedded in Silicon Rubber.

Hull color is white and the whale stripe and boot stripe are a deep rich green which compliments the Sunbrella covers on the roller furling.
