The three-cabin interior has the guest stateroom and enclosed head forward with a hanging closet, lockers and a large hatch above the V-berth. The chain locker is accessible through doors located in the forward bulkhead. The forward head is just to aft on the portside. It is very well appointed with a high quality Groco manual toilet.

The salon, just aft of the enclosed head, is very large and airy with several opening ports and a large hatch. There is a large U-shaped settee to port with a centerline drop-leaf table with fiddles. When the table drops down, the port settee can be converted to a comfortable double berth. To starboard is a long, straight settee equipped with a lee cloth which serves as an excellent sea berth. Just aft on the port side is an extremely functional U-shaped galley. Opposite on the starboard side is the navigation station with a large, lift-top chart table, control distribution panels, book shelf, storage for charts and a cushioned seat. Between the galley and the navigation station is the large companionway ladder and centerline hatch that is used primarily in port or at anchor.

Aft of the navigation station on the starboard side is the enclosed aft head with doors leading to the master stateroom. The master stateroom has a companionway ladder to the cockpit and an offset queen berth on the port side. Opposite on the starboard side is a settee. The master stateroom has a hanging closet, two large lockers, numerous drawers for storage, and two opening ports. The engine room is aft of the companionway ladder and forward of the master stateroom. There is excellent access to the engine from three sides and the top.
