The aft deck comes with a dining table for eight guests on upholstered seating, enabling comfortable and relaxed al fresco dining while up on the flybridge is a helm station forward, a dining table for eight guests on teak chairs, a large bar with sink, fridge, ice maker and barbecue grill, plus a four-person Jacuzzi.
