At anchor, or at the marina, the cockpit comes into its own with the recessed seating forward under the spray-dodger, and a cockpit table with ice-bin or fridge within.
Giant windows enable great views and abundant light. The wrap-around galley has a conventional style fridge, while storage can be easily accessed and a pantry is located at the aft with optional refrigeration.
Andrew Winch created the interior design, which features a lounge on the port side of the saloon and the large U-shaped dinette. The master cabin is located forward and set back from the bow, where sits a large storage compartment accessed from the deck. The dimensions of the cabin, including the head and shower, are very similar to her sister model Jeanneau 54. It highlights hull windows right forward allowing views while sitting up on the bed.
The guest cabin is situated aft to port with ensuite, while to starboard is the third cabin, which can be used as storage or combined storage and cabin. There are also a forward facing navigation station and a U-shaped galley adjacent to the companionway.
