Down several steps there is a dining table to starboard with a guest head forward and a large sitting area with settees, chairs, tables and an entertainment centre including a 37-inch Sharp television screen and a Bose Lifestyle surround sound system. Twin 300hp Lugger diesel engines give her a range of 4,000 nautical miles.
