The salon has twin opening sliding side helm doors opening to oversized walk-bys with railings.

The salon has a pass through into the galley, separated by an intricate cut glass sliding panel of vintage art flamingos, and large access hatch with grill in the cabin sole for ventilation into the forward most area of the engine compartment. It should be noted that the cabin sole, stem to stern has an overlay of ¾” Brazilian Rosewood with White Oak accent stripping, over original plywood sole. Overlay was installed lagging into deck beams for a superior structural element.

Leading aft down the passageway to port is the entrance to the Galley that is full width with 8’ L granite counters, copper farm sink, mahogany cabinetry, 5 burner propane range with oven, solenoid and exhaust hood, a Hobart commercial built-in microwave, 19 cu. ft. over under stainless steel 110v refrigerator, and overhead vintage USN deadlight.

Further down the passageway to port is the entrance to the Captain’s Quarters, and an air conditioning mounting in the upper bulkhead. Beneath that is a mahogany staircase leading to the flybridge, (which is further accessed by mahogany steps from the aft cockpit.) To starboard are two antique dressers, one mahogany, and one walnut with marble top.  To port is the head with electric fresh water toilet, copper sink and copper faucet, and shower compartment with glass door and sliding window.

On the starboard is a vintage queen size New Orleans French Quarter bed with headboard and footboard, LG flat screen with surround sound, opening port and mahogany access door leading to the aft cockpit.

The Engine Room access is in the forward bulkhead of the Captain’s Quarters, with two steps down into the roomy engine room housing the twin Detroits. There is easy access to all sides of the motors, full grating to the bilges, twin electrical panels, dual Fire-Boy fire prevention systems, twin battery banks, tool chest, and dry bilges.
