Layout

On the inside she has a galley with a two burner alcohol stove (no gas, no explosions!) and lots of storage. She has a quarter berth which top end works as the seat for the navstation too.

The main salon features a table and and seating on port- and starboard side. The table can be lowered and in combination with the portside seating can be used as a king sized berth.

Further forward, Tuuli houses the head on port and a clothing locker on the starboard side. With a v-berth in the bow we find lots of comfortable sleeping area, even at sea.

The standing height is 1.85m throughout the boat.
