thousands of other details are handled in
accordance to the standards. It also means

The typically modular design allows for a dinette that converts to a double berth. Flip the dinette seat over and you have a substantial companion helm seat for two other people. The interior is made very light and airey buy two large skylights. The joinery is very well finished too. She smells and looks exceptionaly good.
Currently the owners have a porta potti in situ, however they have the sea-toilet as well. They have both options depending on where they are cruising at the time.
