The galley is immediately to port when you go below.

The countertops are durable and quite functional.

There is a single sink, a three-burner stove and oven and a decent-size icebox/refrigerator.

There are large fiddles which nice to have when working while under way.

There is also a dedicated trash bin and outboard lockers for food stowage.

The foul weather locker next to the companionway can also be accessed from the cockpit locker-a feature rarely found on a small boat.

The nav station is opposite the galley and includes a good-size chart table with shelves above. The electrical panel is outboard and there are three drawers below. The head of the large quarter berth doubles as the nav station seat and some previous owners have added custom cushions to serve as seat backs.

The saloon features an L-shaped settee to starboard that converts to a double berth, and with the straight settee opposite makes a good sea berth with the addition of a lee cloth. Two table arrangements were available-a fixed centerline table or bulkhead-mounted foldaway version. There is decent storage in lockers and shelves above and behind the settees, although the water tanks occupy the space beneath the settees.

The head, which is a one piece molded unit, is to starboard as we move forward.
The molded counter incorporates a sink and plentiful storage areas
A teak grate, on the sole, covers the shower sump.

 More Information


As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
