Many ways to heat the boat - two reverse cycle units, diesel Dickinson Newport Heater in pilothouse, Force 10 propane in saloon, two Red Dot heaters.
The pilothouse has opposing bench seating - the starboard side converts to a double bed. There is a fixed helm seat to starboard and a chart table to port. Down and forward of the pilothouse is the main cabin. The U-shaped galley is to starboard composed of a propane cooktop, AC refrigerator, 12V Adler-Barbour built-in top loading fridge/freezer, custom dual stainless sink with solar vent above. Opposite the galley is a large hanging locker, storage, and bench seating. The master berth is a convertible dinette on the starboard side of the main cabin.

This spacious layout and bright pilothouse are great features for sailors who want to live-aboard.
