Below decks accommodation is impressive considering you are aboard a 29 footer and all space has been utilised to the maximum. The main saloon is entered via the companionway which has two piece lockable wooden wash boards. There is a sliding Perspex hatch with an additional GRP sliding cover to keep the elements and prying eyes away when the boat is unattended.

Four steps down and you are in the main saloon with its smart teak and holly flooring. The first thing that strikes you is the headroom which at 6'2" all the way to the fore cabin is rare in a boat this size and brilliant for those of us with height.

The main seating area in the saloon is to port with a U-Shaped dinette with table and additional settee/berth opposite on starboard side. These areas are over 6 feet long and can act as additional or occasional berths should the need arise. On the bulkhead is a clock and barometer

To port is the galley with a three burner hob and oven. Double stainless steel sink unit with hot and cold pressurised water from mixer tap. Built into the work surfaces is a top loading cool box (New 2017) to keep the perishables fresh and of course the wine and beers cold. There is oodles of storage thanks to the hull mounted cupboards making extended periods afloat a reality. Ther is a 12v Fridge located underneath the chart table

Aft of the galley is the large heads compartment with marine toilet and holding tank, sink unit with hot and cold pressurised water to pull out faucet. Shower sump pump in floor to evacuate the water.

To starboard of the companionway at the rear end of the starboard settee/berth is the chart table with chart storage and 12/220V panel. There are also gauges for water and fuel so that the levels can be monitored easily.

Aft of the chart table is the aft cabin with double berth. There is a good sized wardrobe with hanging space and shelving so that a good selection of clothing can be carried at all times.

In the bow is the fore cabin with double berth and infill, another wardrobe and deck hatch for natural light and ventilation. All cabins are well catered for with 12V lighting and ventilation is provided from the opening ports and deck hatches.

Due to the stout construction, condensation is kept to a minimum and she is a very dry boat indeed
