Most of the Gamefisherman Flybridge boats were built with an "open bulkhead" concept in mind. E&A benefits from a custom aft bulkhead that was designed and installed by John Bayliss of Bayliss Boatworks in Wanchese, NC.

As you enter the salon through the centerline door, the dinette area is located to starboard. This area contains ample storage throughout and a nice seating area. To port, another seating area can be found with additional storage. During a refit, the port and starboard engine boxes were modified/hinged and built out of molded fiberglass for great accessibility to the engines for servicing, etc. The engine room is accessed through a centerline floor hatch.

Just forward of the dinette area, you will find the galley areas to port and starboard. The countertops have been customized and updated to Corian throughout. A top-loading refrigerator/freezer can be found to starboard. A molded sink area along with a custom cupholder/drink rack built out of Corian can be found to port. Just forward, recessed cabinetry space can be found which houses a microwave and additional storage throughout.

This area has a beautiful teak sole with mahogany trim throughout. The interior walls were updated and painted in "Egg Shell White" (Imron) rather than the standard "Matterhorn White."
