Entering the cockpit thru the transom Dive/Fish door and into the very large aft cockpit deck. There's a transom live bait well, on the forward port bulkhead there is a complete tackle center with five shelves & tackle locker, fresh and salt water wash down and an insulated ice chest.  Moving forward up two steps is the raised helm deck, which has a centerline helm behind the windshield for maximum visibility, hard top with two overhead electronics consoles, adjustable helmsman and companion chairs, along with lounge seats and lockers.  The helm deck is surrounded in new isinglass enclosure ('17), and has it's own 16000BTU air conditioner/heating unit to keep the area comfortable.  Moving forward to the starboard of the helm is the access to the cabin.  The salon is accented in teak cabinetry and trim, a standard L-lounge, upholstered chair, high-gloss hi-low table, ice maker and complete entertainment center enhance comfort during extended fishing trips or dockside entertainment.  

Forward on the port side is the galley which has a microwave oven, two-burner range, Corian countertop and over sized sink, refrigerator/freezer combo.  The surprisingly roomy Master Stateroom is forward featuring a offset double bed with hidden storage, cedar hanging locker, clothing drawers, and overhead ventilation hatch.  The head has a fully enclosed shower, electric toilet, a mirrored vanity with sink and Corian top, vinyl flooring and a raised teak entrance door.  Moving aft of the main salon is the Guest stateroom where three guests can sleep comfortably in double and single berths.  A hanging cedar locker, clothes drawers and a large mirror contribute to their well being. Moving aft to the cockpit and up the full tower is the marlin station with full vessel operational control box, Rupp standoff sand spreader lights.  Access to the forward bow deck is easily made by walking forward on the wide gunwhales and utilizing the hand rail.  The bow deck has bow rails, built in bow pulpit and a windlass.  Owner is motivated to sell, all serious offers will be entertained
