The passageway from the aft stateroom to the salon is along the port side of the vessel.

Moving towards the outside you will find the very large refrigerator, freezer with both top opening and front opening access. The refrigeration system is top end with dual, independently controlled cold plates in each of the compartments. The temperature in the refrigerator and freezer are independently adjustable. There is also an optional water cooled assist for the refrigeration that you normally only see in boats in the Tropics. It makes the refrigeration much more efficient and cools down the system faster. The refrigeration compartment also has both a top opening and a front opening door, so no longer do you have to hang upside down to reach the bottom of the refrigerator.

Above the stove is the built-in microwave with rotating tray. All along the side wall and above the sink are built in cabinets and shelves for all of your dining and entertainment needs.

Next around is a large deep storage bin for those large items and cooking tools, followed by a roomy open countertop for working with storage both above and below. Lots of drawers and cupboards. The standard storage cupboard on the bulkhead has been added to, with a second level for even more storage. The "seawater" pump has been removed and replaced with an undersink Whirlpool filtration system for water.
