Expansive interior with ridiculous headroom includes a centerline king bed in the aft cabin with ensuite head. Galley is to Starboard and has 3 newer fridge/freezer units and a 48-bottle wine cooler. The full beam salon boasts seating for 10+ and is modernized with flat screen TV and Fusion sound system. The portside mid berth can double as storage or sleeping quarters.  The large V-berth has entry into the guest head. All wrapped in beautiful woodwork throughout!
