Guest Stateroom

The guest stateroom is to port side directly across the companionway from the head. It features long over/under bunks with designer bedspreads and pillows. There is a storage locker under the bottom bunk and a storage cabinet beneath a small Corian topped bureau with mirror. It is a large stateroom by comparison of similar size boats and takes very little room away from the salon.
