The main deck provides space for dining, galley, saloon area, one of the five guest staterooms, crew accommodations and pantry /cooler space. Entry to the deckhouse is from aft with a starboard wing door forward. To starboard is a dining area with a table which currently seats twelve.
Galley is immediately forward with a serving bar. To port is the saloon, which has been utilized as an open scientific workshop on her most recent expeditions. Forward of the saloon space is a stateroom. A central passageway leads to pantry, walk-in coolers, crew mess and crew accommodations.
The lower deck is fitted with four comfortable staterooms each with twin berths, head compartment with shower stall and space for a small desk. It is worth mentioning that each stateroom could easily accommodate four with bunk-style berth modifications. Forward of the double firewall is the technical space with main engine, generators and all pumps and additional machinery. Aft of the accommodations is a large lazarette with fresh water tankage and additional freezer space.
Fit and finish is simple but robust, functional and comfortable. The pilothouse is raised above the galley space with all ship’s controls, unobstructed 360 degree sightlines and captain’s quarters.
