Entering through the electrically operated salon door, one will immediately notice the fresh interior updates as well as the excellent condition of the wood finishes.

The three stateroom, two head layout features the proven Viking salon, galley/dinette layout with a large settee, modified C-shaped dinette with teak table, and U-shaped galley with granite counter tops, abundant storage, and all the amenities of home. Moving forward, accommodations are spacious. The starboard guest stateroom features crossover bunks with abundant storage. The forward stateroom with its island queen bed and private access to the forward head offers guests a private suite.


The entry to the salon is Amtico teak and holly flooring, allowing one to enter the salon without soiling the carpet. Access to the electrical panel and audio visual equipment is readily at hand for easy breaker checks or power switchovers without walking through the boat.

The teak sea rail along the cabinetry panel doubles as a handrail. A "pop-up" 50" Smart TV (new 2023)raises from the starboard credenza and offers great viewing from the settee. Additional overhead lights are switched separately and all the lights are on dimmers.
