The wide bow has room for sunbathing. The interior has plenty of natural light thanks to seven portholes. The boat is equipped as standard with a swim platform with a sofa for three. In the cockpit there is a large L-shaped sofa and a wet bar. One section of the sofa swivels to form, together with the removable table, a dining area.

The backrest of the sofa reclines to form a large sunpad together with the aft seat. The salon is surprisingly spacious for a 25-foot cruiser: you can stand in it without bending over, there is a mini-bowl with a sink, microwave and refrigerator; the large U-shaped sofa easily accommodates six people. At the rear of the boat is a stateroom with a double bed and a small galley with toilet and sink.
