Enter the saloon galley from the aft deck via the huge "French windows" that open right up to give a light bright and convivial layout. Galley to port with BIG fridge freezer from 2009. There is room to seat eight people at the table and it can be lowered to form a huge double bed. Helm position forward to starboard & there is an outside helm up on the flybridge.
Forward & just 2 steps down we reach the cabins & 2 wet-rooms each with heads and showers. 2 coffin bed cabins with standing height at the entrances with double beds (140 x 195 cm & 135 x 180 cm), cupboards and closets. Right forward is the owners cabin with its central bed (140 x 190 cm), its numerous storage facilities and "Houdini" new in 2010. The side windows of this cabin were also renewed in 2014.

Curtains inside, exterior sun-blinds and many opening windows, assure a constant ventilation and shade.
Floors have been redone by the current owners in 2012.
