Through hulls were replaced, adding reliability to her systems. A state-of-the-art Spectra watermaker capable of producing 50 liters per hour was installed, ensuring a steady fresh water supply. New batteries were fitted, offering efficient energy storage.

In the main salon/dining area, you'll find a spacious and well-equipped L-shaped galley adjacent to the salon. Featuring a double stainless steel sink, propane stove and oven, cold plate refrigeration, and freezer, this galley is a haven for culinary enthusiasts.

To port, a large U-shaped settee and table provide a cozy space that can also convert into a watch berth. Three steps lead to the expansive cockpit from the pilothouse, featuring an aft helm and comfortable guest seating, all while providing a superb forward view over the low-profile varnished pilothouse. The large drop-leaf table in the cockpit offers a delightful setting for alfresco dining and relaxation.
