This practical 3 cabin / 3 head layout is ideal for the cruising family along with visiting guests.

Below, the 523 layout is decidedly impressive with amble beam, generous headroom and pleasingly lit with numerous ports and hatches. Along the starboard is a full length linear galley with all the counter and stowage space one could possibly need.  Built into the array of cabinets are front loading fridge and freezers along with a microwave oven. A centerline, freestanding island cabinet features a handy fiddled counter top and additional organized drawer storage.  A true brace point and handhold for galley operations underway - the opposite side is designed for additional dinette seating.  To port, the broad dinette will comfortably seat 6 all total in a semi-circle fashion

The Forward Master Cabin is truly remarkable.  Situated well aft of the bow, there’s sufficient beam for a queen bed.  The wide dimensions allow comfortable bunk access on along either side.  Hullside settees there are great for sitting and dressing.  To port, a large, private ensuite head features an enclosed shower.  Plentiful storage includes mutilple hanging lockers and along with extensive hullside shelving.  Abundant light and ventilation is provided through 4 opening hatches and 2 fixed hullside ports.  A sitting make-up vanity desk tops off luxury of this stateroom.

Finally aft, the two guest cabins are identical to each featuring their own in-suite heads.  Additionally, there’s standing headroom, double berths, hanging locker, multiple ports and a hatch.
