Overview (apologies for slightly amateur finish!):

Accommodation

Accommodation consists of double berth in the forecabin, and two single berths in the stern. The saloon berth can also be used to accommodate up to 5 people.

The previous owner installed a home-made drip feed diesel heater which, though we never had need to use this, is still in situ.

Galley

The galley is compact but well designed with plenty of places to wedge yourself while underway. The stove has 4 hobs and an excellent oven for making bread (a daily occurance on our travels). There is a huge worksurface created by the engine housing.

The engine housing provides a large work preparing food

As part of the refit the aft heads were removed and this area converted to a pantry with storage and Waeco CoolFreeze Coolbox (low energy yet can go sub zero).

Heads

The heads are ensuite to the forecabin with a shower. There is a small holding tank from the Jabsco marine toilet that can be sealed off to comply with areas that regulate this.

Water/storage

A custom built 350l stainless steel water tank was installed beneath the bed in the forecabin as part of the refit, leaving huge coffin storage spaces either side. There are similarly large storage areas under the aft berths.

Berths

There is a double berth in the forecabin, and two singles to stern. The foreward cabin was relined with sheets of thermal foam at time of refit in 2015 which keeps it both cosy or cool, as required. The previous owner has lined the rest of the boat with similar.

Large forward-opening hatch allows plenty of light, and catches the breeze. 

 

Aft cabin

The aft cabin on the starboard side can be closed for privacy, and can sleep two at a push. There is a large amount of storage beneath the berth, in addition to good access to the steering mechanism if needed.

Pilot berth

On the port side there is a simple pilot berth with huge storage beneath. It is possible to talk to those on watch without leaving your bed….
