This salon is set up with several unique conversation areas and plenty of space for entertaining guests. Forward is the galley done in the country kitchen style with a large banquette that faces aft and into the galley. To starboard in this space is a day head. To starboard is a staircase that leads to the staterooms below deck. This yacht features three comfortable staterooms, each with an en suite head. Additional accommodations are found forward and down a staircase from the galley.

The main salon is designed with an non-traditional furniture arrangement making it seem more like a chic lounge than a living room. As you enter, to port is a seating area made up of a love seat and sofa done in a bone colored leather and in between which there is a lovely display nook with a raised counter and overhead lights that currently highlight one of the owners' many gorgeous sculptures. This display area is the perfect space for you to place your most prized art pieces. A centrally located ottoman and several blue and tan throw pillows accentuate this area. To starboard is another seating and entertainment area with an aqua blue arm chair situated next to a large high-gloss cherry display counter that conceals a 42" Panasonic Plasma TV on a high/lo lift system. Forward and to port is a spacious dining area with a built-in banquette, round glass dining table and several parsons' chairs. This main salon lends itself entirely to your pure enjoyment. Other features that round, fine high-gloss cherry wood throughout, and a full audio-visual package.
