The large sociable cockpit has plenty of space for family and friends with bench seating along the transom, and pilot and co-pilot chairs. The cockpit cover is windowed to give the captain excellent panoramic views and can easily be lowered for open-air cruising.

Steps lead down to the saloon with comfortable cushioned seating facing the galley, this comprises a spirit stove, an inset sink with a cold water supply, cupboards and worktop space. Alongside the galley, there is a separate toilet and shower compartment with a porta potti and a sink with a shower that detaches.
