The fabrics are a nautical blue covering well upholstered foam cushions. The coverings are zipped so can be easily removed for cleaning from time to time.
What strikes you immediately on entry is the sheer volume of the yacht. You are made to feel that you are on a much larger craft, thanks to the generous beam which continues throughout the saloon.

Perishables are more than catered for from the large capacity front opening fridge and the top loading icebox fitted with a fridge plate.
