Entering below decks from the cockpit's wide hatch you are instantly met by classic class. The craftsmanship that went into building these timeless craft is long lost. Beautiful steam shaped overhead deck beams, picked out by the white deck head in between. The hull ribs are visible in places and varnished, adding to her classic look, hand built furniture and quirky elements from a knowledgeable eye makes for a lot of character and practicality. Although you kind of sink into it's old worldly comfort you cant help but notice the light and airy feel created by the white deck head, coachroof sides and 6 large coachroof portlights.
