Starting all the way forward is a double private cabin with access to the anchor locker. There are two single berths port and starboard. There is seating between the two berths and on the starboard is a counter with storage lockers above and below. Overhead is a rather large opening hatch for lighting and ventilation. Aft is a privacy door to the passageway to the starboard side private sleeping cabins with two bunks over and under with lots of storage cabinets. To starboard across the passageway is a large head with shower.
Moving aft into the very large main saloon with its U-shaped galley. The galley provides lots of counter space. There is a large stainless steel double sink with storage above and below. The three burner propane stove with oven is on the port outside position with room for spice rack behind, some room for hanging pot storage as well as storage lockers to the sides. There is a long athwartship counter with storage below and four utility drawers. Along the starboard opposite the galley is another counter with the refrigerator installed below and storage cabinets above. To port is the U-shaped dinette with seating for six. To starboard is a single settee with a pilot berth outboard. Aft to starboard is a chest of drawers, a counter and the refrigerator. Aft on the centerline is the access to the cockpit and to starboard is the companionway to the aft cabin. To starboard in the companionway is the navigation station with navigation instruments mounted above a large countertop with storage below. On the opposite wall is the electrical panel. Aft through a privacy door is the master cabin -- one of the very nicest I have seen. Beautiful teak, mirror, countertop, lots of storage and a double berth athwartship. There is plenty of natural light from the side ports, the overhead hatch and the windows across the transom.
Also in the master cabin is the ensuite master head with shower enclosure and access to the stand up engine room with a work counter and tool storage.

Buyers looking for a big, powerful offshore vessel that will also make a wonderful liveaboard should give this vessel a close examination. It shows quality everyplace you look. Wide open decks with lots of safety features. Teak decks in very good condition. Beautiful light colored teak interior. The craftsmanship of Taiwanese master builders is abundantly evident. This boat is large enough to provide more than ample interior spaces. An important feature is the stand up engine room with work bench and storage for tools and engine supplies. She provides sleeping for nine in four separate sleeping areas -- two in the forward cabin, two in the port side cabin, three in the main saloon and two in the master cabin. You will find this vessel shows very little wear and tear.
A comment from the most recent survey says it best: "This yacht was again found to be in very good condition. Her interior was found to be very clean and well
maintained throughout. Bilge spaces were also found to be clean and well maintained. Engine room was
clean with no contamination noted. Hull sides and decks and decks were also found to be clean and well
maintained. Her hull bottom was sound with some blistering noted. Overall she shows that she has had very
good care from her owner."
