Virtual Tour

Interior Layout

There is no doubt that this boat was built to fish. Every aspect of her design and deck layout lends to just about any style fishing desired- trolling, deep-dropping, kite fishing, you name it! Wide decks leading all the way around the center console, an open bow, and a tremendous cockpit. 14 flush-mounted rod holders alone, with plenty of room for more if desired! But the other surprise is the use of space in the living quarters of the center console: there is an easy-to-enter cabin door to port that leads into the larger than expected cabin. Aft is an L-shaped counter with solid surface counter top , 2-burner electric stove and stainless sink. Cabinet storage is located both above and below for dry goods and galley ware. To starboard is a dinette with table matching the galley counter tops and a comfortable settee. Forward is the roomy sleeping quarters which features a large centerline queen berth with storage beneath, storage to port and starboard, and an overhead hatch. To port is the private head with electric flush head, matching countertop and sink with vanity, and a grated wood sole for showering. Just aft of the head to port is another small section of the galley that features a matching countertop, refrigerator with freezer compartment, and convection microwave. The cabin has an ornate wooden sole, is equipped with a reverse cycle air conditioning and heating system, and offers 6'4" of headroom!! The interior accommodations are certainly adequate for several days at a time for a couple- much more than you might expect from a center console.
