The layout of this beautiful boat is exceptionally functional and comfortable. The interior feels light, airy and spacious, for many good reasons:

  • Fifteen opening ports w/screens. All are stainless steel and have bug screens that have NEVER been used – still in the bag from IP!
  • Six deck hatches with Ocean Air® screens and shades.
  • Four Dorade style vents w/screens and plugs.
