Looking into the saloon area on the left, the table comfortably seats four and we also chose the table option that swivels through 90 degrees and opens. Looking back there is a corner seat too. Pleanty of opening hatches for air, two heating vents to keep us snug and warm.

The galley was one of our key factors. We specifically wanted the galley to be at the bottom of the companionway. Although we could have had a three burner stove we chose the two burner. Other bits, half height fridge and a separate freezer compartment, microwave (must get an inverter), double sink with the optional sea wash. We initially thought the cupboards were too small, but after a few outings we thing that it is better to have a lot of smaller cuboards as they are easier to pack so they dont jumble themselves up too much.

Forecabin is a really nice space, it has a large v berth which means you sleep ‘upside down’ or very, very close at the top. There are two half height wardrobes, and quite a lot of other stowage in draws and space above the bed.  All the bow thruster mechanicals and batteries are beneath the fore end of the bed. There is an ‘en-suite’ bathroom with (silent) electric flush toilet and a shower. Single heating outlet in the cabin, but none (yet) in the heads. There are also three opening hatches and two fixed portholes in this area, loads of light.

The aft cabin has a full size double with standing room as you enter. Half height wardrobe on the left as you enter and a huge storage cupboard opposite with loads of space on top and around the room. Two opening hatches and single fixed porthole mean there is enough light. If it is not light enough there are plenty of lights, single heating outlet to keep you snug. The cabin has a door to the aft heads, although this is really the day heads. Full size manual toilet and a great shower which has proper doors to separate this space from the heads. Large porthole in here with an opening within it for ventilation and a heating outlet.

Not a lot you can say about a chart table, it is certainly big enough with space to store all the books and charts for cruising. Anything I leave lying around also gets ‘tidied  up’ and placed in here! The electrical panel is easy to read and also hinged to give easy access behind to all the electrical. Raymarine DSC radio, it does everything it says it does and this will probably remain although we will need to get a VHF radio later on.
CD player is surprisingly good and even better as if has a USB port on the front for hours of whatever you want music.
