Vessel Walkthrough

This three stateroom, two head layout is fantastic.  Starting forward with the VIP stateroom with over/under bunks and ensuite head.  The master stateroom is aft on the starboard side with a walkaround queen berth with underneath storage. The guest stateroom is located portside with over/under bunks.  The head is accessed from the companionway on portside and is connected to the VIP.  Also located portside is the washer and dryer.

Up four steps to the salon is a starboard dinette, opposite the galley, featuring a teak table. Aft to port is an L-shaped leather sofa and teak Hi-Lo table. To starboard are cabinets which house the entertainment center and the ship's breaker panel.

The boat is finished with high gloss teak and all cabinets and drawers are raised panel.  Full carpet and runners found throughout the staterooms, wood flooring in the galley and salon.  An upgraded luxury decor interior package has been completely redone and she shows like a modern vintage Viking!
