Everywhere you look are drawers, bureaus, cabinets and hanging lockers.The enlarged guest stateroom features a large raised v-berth forward and en-suite head with separate shower, as well as laddered access to 3rd berth suitable for children.The galley up floor plan is well thought out, offering tremendous storage, as does the salon settee arrangement.
