INDEPENDENCE features the standard four-cabin layout with three en-suite owner/guest cabins, plus an additional en-suite crew/guest cabin.

Finely crafted solid teak joiner work is finished to a high level throughout the interior, including solid teak raised-panel cabin doors, fully louvered cabinet doors, solid teak trim and custom table tops. Cabin soles are bamboo with teak inlays and custom locking mechanisms. Head and shower areas are all painted white Awlgrip and feature Blue Pearl granite vanity tops, solid Corian sinks and molded floors. Hanging lockers are lined with cedar and feature automatic lights. White fabric headliner with Oceanair hatch screens/blinds throughout. Upholstery is custom leatherette, with a very comprehensive and tasteful décor package including various accent throws in each cabin: custom duvets and comforters, fitted mattress covers, custom mattress pads, pillows and (2) sets fitted sheets with high thread count.


Beginning forward is a private VIP stateroom with a queen-sized berth and significant storage space, including two large hanging lockers, drawers and several cabinets.

Forward of the main salon and to port is the second guest cabin, featuring a generous double berth, hanging locker and multiple drawers and lockers. There are three opening portholes and a large deck hatch. A head and shower stall is across the passageway.


The main salon is quite spacious for a vessel of this size, due in part to her generous 18’ beam and generous headroom. A large L-settee is to port, with a custom teak table with beautiful compass rose inlay that can be raised or lowered by a manual lift. Two custom seats are inboard, with anchors for tie-down while underway to provide comfortable seating for six. To starboard is a full-length settee with a coffee table with inlay. The entire space feels light and open due to two large deck hatches, expansive deck house windows and two hull windows.


Aft and to starboard is an L-shaped navigation station with easy access to the cockpit. There is a comfortable pedestal swivel chair along with built-in backlit switch panels, navigation instruments and remote control panels for the water maker and tank monitors. The workspace also includes a chart table with compass rose inlay.

The owner's private stateroom is located aft and features a comfortable 66” berth on centerline, with large countertops and storage outboard each side.
