The interior is beautifully finished with rich satin varnished teak woodwork . The thick luxurious interior cushions are done in a subtle cream ultra suede which complements the rich wood for a warm traditional feel to the interior The teak and holly floor also adds to the rich effect, and the owner has the cabin sole varnished each year by Palmer Johnson. With her generous headroom ....... this is a roomy and spacious interior. There are two custom wood screens for the companionway, and screens for the hatches, and with 4 large opening overhead hatches, 8 opening ports and 6 dorade vents, this has to be one of the most airy and well ventilated boats ever.
