Fishing rods and other gear stows handily and are readily accessible beneath the L-shape sofa to starboard.

Below, the four-stateroom, four-head layout utilizes space for maximum comfort and privacy, including a most spacious nearly full beam master suite and private access to the very generous crew quarters which can also be accessed via the engine room and cockpit.
