(more details below).  The NAV STATION is opposite to starboard with plenty of room for the electronics and a good-sized, well-lit chart tabel, and a bench that swings out from beneath.  The starboard AFT GUEST CABIN features a large double berth (6'6" x 5'), a good changing area, reading lamps storage locker and shelves.  The insulated engine compartment is aft of the companionway.

Sails and Rigging

She's designed to offer a single, competent helmsman great performance.  A single or short-handed crew can go where and when they like.  This magnificient sailing yacht is maybe the most maneuverable - easier to control, and therefore safer. 

Self-vanging and self-tacking camber spar jib and lazy jacks for easy handling of sails.  The unstayed Carbon Fiber mast also frees the deck and hull of cumbersome rigging and compressive loading and reduces the weight aloft - therefore increasing stability. All lines led aft to a series of line stoppers and (2) Barient self-tailing winches.
