The vessel is a raked bow, round bilge, fin keel, skeg hung rudder, staysail ketch with flush decks, raised trunk cabins and an enclosed center cabin.
Forward Cabin: Beneath the foredeck is the forward berthing compartment with chain lockers, V-berth, stowage areas, and an escape hatch overhead. Abaft the forward compartment is a watertight bulkhead followed by the forward head with Blake marine toilet, sink, and shower. A sliding pocket door separates this area from the main salon.
Main Salon: Directly aft of the forward cabin/head is the salon. There is a large dinette that converts to a full size berth and a settee that converts to a single berth as well as port and starboard pilot berths. Aft in the salon is the galley to port with Force 10 LPG stove and oven, a two burner electric range top, fridge, microwave, and double sink. To starboard of the galley is the navigation station, chart table, and main breaker panel which sit atop a raised deck above the battery bank.
Cockpit: From the nav station, the companionway steps to starboard of centerline lead up to the enclosed cockpit. In the cockpit forward are the engine controls, helm, captain's chair, and space for nav electronics. There is seating port, starboard, and aft on cushioned settees. All sail control lines enter into the cockpit to their dedicated electric winches. The enclosed cockpit was designed to offer shelter to the crew in extreme conditions and climates and would be excellent for high latitude exploring, circumnavigation, or provide extra square footage for a liveaboard. Aft in the cockpit a ladder leads down to the master's cabin.
Owner's Cabin: Aft in the cockpit a ladder leads down to the master's cabin. The master's cabin has a private head with toilet, sink, and shower. There are single berths to port and starboard (which convert to a large double berth), hanging lockers to both port and starboard, a desk, stool, SSB radio, and escape hatch overhead.
Engine Room: The engine room is located under the cockpit and is accessed from the galley and master's cabin via watertight doors. The engine room is divided with fire boundary sliding panels into two machinery compartments, port and starboard, with the passageway running the centerline. Each compartment has a Perkins 90 HP engine that drive the boat's counter-rotating, hydraulically-feathering propellers. The other machinery, as listed above, is located in the engine room.
Weather Decks: The weather decks are protected by stainless steel bow and stern pulpits, low bulwarks, and vinyl coated stainless steel lifelines with boarding gates to port and starboard, at the cockpit, and centerline of the stern pulpit for access to rigid hull inflatable.
