Full forward the acclaimed bathroom has a wrap around style layout with a shower stall and excellent stowage. Moving aft into the owner's cabin, it has ample storage, drawers, lockers and bookshelves. Four opening ports, a large overhead hatch and two ventilation ports create plenty of breeze for comfortable sleeping.
