Two of which have their own private heads.The foremast is stepped on the centerline. This space is accessed by a centerline companion-way ladder leading from the forward deck house. Heat is supplied to this area via a bulkhead mounted heater/stove.

Next is a large midship compartment with a crews pilot berth located on the centerline against the bulkhead. This is then followed by four double berth cabins to starboard and two single cabins to port. There is a single crew pipe berth alongside the centerboard trunk. The companionway ladder for this section of the vessel is situated along the port side of the centerboard trunk and leads to the mid-ship coach house. The centerboard trunk runs nearly the entire length of this compartment but has integrated into the layout and design of the cabins in such a way as to give the maximum amount of space and comfort to guests.

Aft of the mid-ship compartment is "Heritage's" large galley that boasts a fantastic meal preparation area to port with a large classic shipmate stove (at the time of this listing the owners are upgrading to a newer custom wood stove), double sink, island type counter and storage cabinets. The messing area contains three large tables situated around the perimeter of this space with built-in bench style seating. Below the galley located on the centerline there are two firewood storage areas and a water tank that is accessed by lift out hatches. The companionway ladder is located at the forward end of the galley and is accessed on deck through the after coach house.

Aft of the galley is the Captains cabin which includes a double berth with a desk and built-in cabinetry to port against the forward bulkhead.
