Standing head room engine room. I don't have a good shot of the engine room but I am standing here between the engines.

Comfortable flying bridge seating space.

Forward "V" berth. Note hanging locker and private doorway to forward head.

Stack household washer/dryer. We did, and do, use it on our trips.
