From the cockpit down the companionway steps to port is the galley, with new plumbing fixtures and a gas burner stove (which is not connected, but works). Currently, all cooking is done via the convection microwave oven.

Forward is the saloon, with a dining table that seats six.

The mast, on centerline, is encased in a teak wooden covering. There is a couch on the starboard side of the salon with storage behind. Forward is the V-berth, which sleep two, and also the forward head which is also used as the day head.

Proceeding aft from the companionway is the passageway to the large master centerline queen berth with en-suite head. The fixtures in the head are all new. The entire cabin is very spacious, with ample opening hatches and portlights.

The entire fit and finish of this Gulfstar is exceptional, with many new items. The owner has spent a lot of time maintaining her to a very high standard, which shows throughout the yacht.
