- This boat has a central wheelhouse, and a small aft cockpit. Starting in the wheelhouse, the helm position is to port where there is excellent, and full, engine instrumentation. There are fitted helm and pilot seats with a chart cupboard, and fold out table in front of the pilot seat. Opening windows fore and aft and a huge hatch (primarily to facilitate engine removal) supplement sliding doors and windows to either side in the wheelhouse roof. The wheelhouse is thus very light and airy, with superb visibility in all directions. Going forward, the forecabin has two full length berths, with storage under and hanging locker and in the bow is the toilet compartment, which has a pumpout loo, and a handbasin with pressurised hot (from calorifier) and cold water. Going aft, the main cabin has a hanging locker to starboard, plus a small sideboard/drinks cabinet to port plus two full-length settee berths and a bulkhead mounted catalytic heater. Aft of this is the galley, which has a full sized cooker (4 burners, grill and oven), and Electrolux fridge, stainless steel sink unit, drainer and worktop plus cupboards and other storage. Double doors lead through to a small aft cockpit. Headroom throughout the boat is 6ft plus. Interior (and exterior!) decor is in excellent condition, being competed in white with varnished mahogany (see photos). Her upholstery is in good shape, with the same material being used throughout (including curtains).
- Navigation equipment: Sestrel compass, brass binnacle compass, Harrier log/speedo, Hector depth sounder, clock, barometer, Husan 55 VHF radio, Neco repeater compass, Kent Clearview screen, Vetus helm indicator navigation and search lights

This boat has been the subject of continuous upgrading, with a huge amount of work (some £16,500 having been spent in the last 12 months). Amongst other things, this included replacement of planking in her lower hull, replacement of her foredeck, replacement of her wheelhouse roof, and some of the windscreen frames and so on. In consequence, she is in sparkling condition. Her foredeck, wheelhouse roof and aft cabin roof have all been replaced using the West system.
A very pretty, spacious and homely vessel, kept in beautiful condition by caring owners. Much admired, a thoroughly nice coastal craft which is also ideal for inland cruising.
