She is expertly well maintained and has been genuinely loved over her lifetime and charter career.
There are comfortable cabins below including two doubles and one single. The shared head is well appointed and has a separate shower area. The spacious apartment style galley and homey salon living area with a spacious dining area. Guests may enjoy our spacious front deck area with mats, enjoy a nap in the hammock or watch the sunset on our wooden benches aft.
Cooking and entertaining are a specialty of the owners. There are a few different areas for dining. Buffet or more formal dining can happen in our dining/salon area or for a nice sunset view and breeze the cockpit is large enough to comfortably accommodate dining guests above.
