Sliding doors open to port and starboard decks, and teak stairs ascend to the flybridge. The intelligently equipped galley features full-sized appliances that include a side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, range with oven, trash compactor, and disposal. In the master suite, a king-size walkaround bed is covered in designer linens. The guest stateroom offers twin berths and its own TV, VCR and stereo with CD player. Creature comforts in each of the staterooms include cedar-lined, lighted, hanging lockers, individual room temperature controls, reading and accent lighting, and opening portlights with screens. Reigning above it all is a soaring flybridge designed for easy entertainment alongside a fully equipped helm station.
