Down below, the three-cabin, two-head interior layout is simple but stylish and well executed throughout. Light oak woodwork, gray upholstery, and white panels on the hull and overhead brighten the interior considerably, aided by three portlights in each side of the hull, long ports set into the cabin top, and hatches overhead. In the saloon, the two-piece hatch can open in either direction, a nice touch for dockside living when the breeze isn’t always from dead ahead. The judges did note the number of fixed ports elsewhere, though, and wondered how ventilation might be in more tropical settings.
I found generous headroom in the owner’s cabin forward, and appreciated the elbowroom in its en suite head and shower compartment. Accommodations included a good-size hanging locker and an island queen berth.
