Entering the cabin through the companionway, on the port side you see the u-shaped galley and just forward you find the saloon table which can convert into a double berth. On the starboard side across from the galley you will find the navigation area and chart table. Just forward of the navigation station is the settee, which serves as a single berth. Just forward of the starboard settee is the Alaskan diesel heater to keep you cozy warm during Pacific Northwest winters. Across from the heater you will find the head complete with a vanity and shower. Up forward in the V-berth you will find the master suite. The woodwork throughout the boat is in phenomenal condition. Walking back aft just past the cockpit you will find the aft cabin containing two single berths. This cabin could also serve as the master cabin, and provides great privacy.

The galley's appointments are wrapped with custom woodwork and trim.

A double sink and Hillerange 3 burner propane stove/oven allow for preparation of a feast for the crew.
