Hull, Deck and Cockpit

traditional Carl Alberg designed hull, a full keel with attached rudder and tiller steering. The hull is constructed of solid fiberglass laminate and the deck has a balsa core with fiberglass laminate overlay. Eight opening bronze ports and two deck hatches keep the interior cabin airy and cool. The white deck has tan non-skid, and is accented with a teak toe rail. Inside the toe rail is a double lifeline system with stainless steel stanchions, all connecting to a stainless steel bow rail and stern rail. The cabin house top has teak eye brows above the bronze ports, teak hand rails, teak tracks for the companionway sliding hatch and a teak dorade box for the cowl vent.
The cockpit can easily accommodate four adults when underway. The mainsheet attaches aft of the cockpit and with the tiller stored up, the cockpit opens up for more guests.
Interior Cabin Layout

From the cockpit, step down into the salon area. Behind the steps you'll find the galley stainless steel sink. To port is a propane stove; to starboard you'll find the built-in icebox.
The salon has a port and starboard settee and dining table. The port settee opens to a double berth; behind is a pilot berth. The starboard settee is a single berth with a storage shelf behind. The dining table folds and can be stored up against the midships wall when not in use.
Following the salon is the head to port and a hanging locker to starboard. At the bow is a traditional v-berth; two single berths or with the center filler piece, one double berth.
Teak and holly sole throughout and accent high gloss bright work create a warm cozy atmosphere below decks.
