All the features that one would expect of this type of yacht. Four watertight bulkheads and crash box forward. Stability and performance is augmented by 1700 litres of water ballast each side split into several tanks.

Designed as an offshore single/shorthanded racer/cruiser, the accomodation is lightweight, minimal by cruising standards but highly functional and well thought out for the task. For someone looking to cruise, one would describe the boat as a passage maker, rather than comfortable cruising. However, it's minimal fit out does mean that there is plenty of scope with ease for modification for someone looking to add some creature comforts.
Forward of the mast there is a large sail compartment which could be fitted out with pipe cots to boost the number of berths onboard.
Behind a third watertight bulkhead there is a large heads compartment and drying/hanging locker that extends accross the entire beam of the yacht.
The main accommodation is between the mast and the companionway and has full standing headroom. The forward end is taken up by the galley which isn't crammed into a small area which is the norm on this type of yacht. There is space for a new owner to play with the arrangement here, replace the existing single-burner with something larger if they so wished for example. The rest of the cabin is dominated by a modern navigation pod and chart table seat in the classic Open 60 style. Outboard each side are bunks above the side saddle water ballast tanks.
Under the cockpit there is more storage space and access through a central hatch through the aft watertight bulkhead into the steering compartment. This area can be accessed from the deck and so used as a lazarette for storage.
