Just aft of the locker is a bureau with a storage locker and mirror over it and drawers and another locker below. A louvered bi-fold door separates the forward stateroom from the rest of the boat yet provides private access to head through shower entrance.


Aft of the galley, on the port side, is a 6'6" settee with upholstered backrests and stowage lockers outboard with a full Navigation Station aft.  Opposite the port settee is a 6'7" "L" shaped dinette which converts to a 48" wide double berth when the table is folded down. Aft of the dinette is a locker with shelf and drawers outboard. The single drop leaf teak table has center storage wells. A deep full-length shelf is outboard of the settee. The companionway is removable for access to the engine.  There are 4 opening hatches and 7 opening port holes.


The head is fully enclosed with marine toilet, arborite counter top with oval stainless steel sink and large vanity with mirror above. Outboard is a locker with shelf and below the vanity are drawers and another locker. The separate shower room can be entered either through the head or from the forward stateroom. A curtain separates the shower from the head area. A molded sump with electric pump-out and teak grate is fitted in the sole. There is a locker outboard in the shower room and a teak slatted seat.
