The interior sleeps four with an athwartships double berth aft of the galley and a convertible dinette/double berth forward. Theres a separate stall shower in the heada big plus on any small boat with cruising aspirations. Additional features include wide side decks, an opening windshield, transom shower, and raw-water washdown.
