The accommodation is spacious and bright with lots of stowage. These are a very light and roomy boat for its size, with 6ft 3" headroom in both hulls, and a sheltered steering position. Their cockpits are larger than most 37 ft catamarans as they can comfortably seat 10 people.

She has 2x Yanmar 1GM motors and 2x 60 litre diesel tanks, 2x 80 litre water tanks, 3x new batteries, 1x 150 watt solar panel, wind and speed indicators, gimball stove, 1x 12v fridge, new standing rigging, rear wood dive deck, Diesel heater with 5 litre tank, heads shower room.
