 The Navigation Instruments and Autopilot are all Raymarine.
A New B & G Colour Plotter has been fitted in 2016. A really excellent piece of kit.
 The superbly reliable  Volvo 75hp Turbo enables motoring at 7-plus knots and is sensitive enough to allow for easy Marina berthing.

Below decks, the Deck-Saloon design presents an exceptionally bright stylish interior, in Cherry Mahogany.

Twin identical aft cabins offer plenty of space with excellent headroom and long bunks.
The saloon has the dining table fit that allows conversion to a generous double bunk.
The second toilet/heads, shower and washbasin is accessed from the saloon.
There is central heating to all cabins and saloon, provided by the Eberspacher D5L Warm Air system. It is programmable and provides the crew with somewhere warm for those cool early and late season evenings..
