The open and airy feel which is very much attributed to the large frame less glass front screen, windows and companion way door is impressive. The decor is light to allow easy matching of accessories. The saloon is designed as a bright but protected living and entertainment area.

A full length settee on the port side divides the saloon area from the galley below. A serving shelf on top of the port settee seat back effectively connects the two areas. An open area above the serving shelf allows easy conversation and eye contact between the galley and saloon areas. To starboard is an L shaped settee and table. The two settee arrangement has an uncrowded feel that is congenial to easy conversation. For special occasions, the settees serve double duty as single berths.

The forward helm station has a navigation console that is sufficiently low as to not block the front facing view but still provide a viewable line of sight from around the saloon area. A 32" LCD television is mounted into the back of the dual helm seat. Large work space areas either side of the helm double as navigation chart tables while under way and as food servery platforms at anchor. Two motorised windows either side of the helm provide forward ventilation with the possibility of being left partially open in raining conditions. Large hatches above the helm seat are fitted with sliding screens and sun block blinds.

Companion ways either side of the helm lead to the galley and guest cabin to port and the head and master cabin to starboard. Flooring is kept simple and easy to maintain with faux beech wood grain vinyl plank floor boards. The widow mullion area is standard vinyl covered or optional faired gel coat surface as shown. All trim and the horizontal table surfaces are finished in machined solid surface material. A foam backed vinyl ceiling liner is finished either side by full length pelmets which incorporate LED strip lights.

Detail attention has been given to reducing heat buildup in the vessel so as air conditioning is not a necessary option. The forward glass has been angled more vertical and has a large overhanging brow which extends at each side to a large aft deck overhang. The side glass is near vertical and tinted. Solar heat loads are kept to a minimum. The frameless glass aft windows and doors allow a commanding rear view and open fully to allow maximum ventilation.

Sleeping Cabins


The master cabin on the starboard side has a full queen size bed with a custom mattress using layered foam cushioning. A tambour door reveals a generous hanging closet space. Below the hanging locker is a solid surface counter top with a large drawer unit under. Additional storage is accessible through hatches under the mattress. A staircase provides access to the bed.

The aft bulkhead turns aft on the outboard side creating an interesting extra space that is suitable for a small bookshelf and LCD TV mounting that angles towards the middle of the bed head. Storage space under the shelf is sufficiently large for an optional cabin air conditioner.

The cabin is finished in foam backed vinyl and wood grain panels. The outer cabin topside is optionally finished in fair gel coat. Wood grain vinyl tiles finish the cabin floor.

An overhead hatch is strategically placed above the head end. It allows immediate access to the foredeck and presents a view of the sky above while lying down. The hatch is fitted with a sliding screen and day shade. An opening port light is fitted to the outside cabin topside.

Pelmets on the outer cabin side and above the bed head incorporate LED strip lights. Two reading lights are located under the bed head pelmet. A 12 volt cabin fan provides extra cooling for warmer nights.

The guest cabin on the port side mirrors the starboard master cabin with the exception of a closet at the aft end replacing the solid surface shelf.

Shower and Toilet


Aft of the master cabin in the starboard hull is the shower and toilet. A basin is installed on a full length solid surface bench top. Pressurised hot and cold water is on tap at the sink which has also has a shower head attached to the wall. The floor incorporates a shower pan which has a well for waste water that is pumped out with an electric pump. All inside corners of the head area are radioused for easy cleaning and the floor has a slip resistant finish.

A large mirror door at the aft end of the head provides service access to the vessel pumps and plumbing. An electric salt water flushing toilet is at the aft end of the head compartment. The toilet pumps to an onboard holding tank that is fitted with a deck pump out and gravity drain. At the vanity facia, a covered water resistant roll holder is mounted along side the toilet and shower pump controls. A bright overhead LED light provides illumination.

Ventilation is provided by an overhead deck hatch and a port light. A lockable privacy door is fitted at the forward end. Fresh towel storage is provided on the outboard fascia of the companionway between the master cabin and head. Towel hanging racks are installed above the storage area.

In the port hull aft of the guest cabin is the galley. Facing inboard the galley is open to the saloon area above. The galley bench top is an L shape 2 metres long by 1.2 metres wide at the aft end. The bench top is solid surface with an integral sink. Two portable induction cook tops are provided. Ship stores and galley appliances are stored in cupboards at the back of the bench top (under the saloon port side settee). A refrigerator is located athwart ships under the aft bench top. Above the aft bench is a flush locker for a microwave oven or additional storage. Along the length of the outboard section of the galley is a wall mounted storage unit for plates and other items that are relatively narrow. Ventilation of the galley area is by way of a port light on the outer hull side, an overhead hatch and a cabin fan.

The vessel electrical system supplies 240 volt AC power that is sufficient to support the induction cook tops, a microwave oven and other kitchen appliances such as a bread maker or toaster . The AC power is sourced from an inverter that uses battery power instead of having to run a generator set.

A panel at the aft end of the galley controls important house functions - refrigeration, AC power, inverter, battery management.

The helm features an elevated seating arrangement for two that provides a commanding view. Two hatches are strategically placed overhead to allow a standing position on the helm seat for an even better perspective of the surrounding area. Large workplaces either side of the helm are perfect for charts or laptop.

Forward ventilation is provided by two cabin fans and opening outer windscreens controlled by motorised actuators. The cabin fans swivel towards the screen to double as demisters. The inner two windscreens are fixed and each are fitted with a pantographic arm windscreen wiper incorporating fresh water washer sprays. The inner screens join with a narrow gap to provide a commanding view without obstruction.

Vessel steering is conventional hydraulic wheel steering. A Glendinning electronic Morse control unit controls engine power and gearbox. Standard electronic equipment includes a VHF radio, 12" colour multifunction display, GPS, radar, fish finder, autopilot and AIS. A rocker style switch panel controls "drive the boat" functions.

Two membrane keypads control switching of the vessel operation mode and auxiliary functions. Red and white overhead lighting is provided at port, centre and starboard stations.

Aft Deck


Covered by a large overhanging brow, the aft deck has been designed as a multifunction area that is perfect for entertaining, fishing or just lazing around. The brow provides protection from sun and rain with provision for side curtains or clears. At 2 metres long by 4.3 metres wide, the open plan style deck is ready to accommodate portable furniture that can stow in the deck lockers.

A wide central companionway door joins the aft deck to the saloon. Either side of the door are frameless glass windows that hinge out and upward. On the port side, a 70 litre top opening fridge/freezer is mounted under a solid surface counter top. An AC outlet supplies power to any portable cooking appliance. The starboard side has a seat with a refrigerated ice box fitted under and a storage locker for an optional LPG system. Fresh and salt water pressurised water outlets are convenient for hosing the deck area.

Large lazarette floor lockers are provided on either side of the aft deck. Gates on either side provide entry to the boarding platforms which at 0.4 metres above waterline allow easy access for dinghy boarding. The port platform has built in mounts for the swim ladder which normally stows in a forward locker. An optional electric capstan can be installed on top of the aft bulkhead to assist with mooring lines, fishing tackle and crab pots. The cabin roof is ideal for light weight dinghy stowage. Davits are optional.

Overhead task lights, aft flood lights, night lights and underwater lights provide a comprehensive lighting package. All lights are LED.

Fore Deck


The foredeck features a central nacelle and trampoline nets joining to each bow. The anchor, chain and windlass are mounted under deck. This means that the foredeck area is completely free of mess and clutter. Fresh and salt water deck washdown outlets are located under the port anchor locker hatch. Control of the anchor windlass at the foredeck is provided by a wireless remote key fob.

The starboard hatch gives access to the anchor locker and windlass. Each bow has a deck hatch providing access to a locker suitable for stowage of light objects such as fenders and dock lines. Going aft the deck is clear except for a hatches over the master and guest cabins.

The roof is a special area that provides utility other than just keeping the rain and sun out. Over 500 watts of solar panel capacity charges the vessel house battery which in turn provides power to the vessel electrical system. A communications tower mounts the radar transceiver, VHF antenna, horn, navigation light and TV antenna.

The aft roof area accomodates a tie down space for an inflatable dinghy, crab pots and other "garage" items. It also doubles as a perfect private spot for taking a rest outdoors.
