“Cygnus” has a bright and inviting interior with oiled teak bulkheads, soft white overhead, teak ceilings, and a teak and holly cabin sole.

The forward cabin vee berth has a custom Tufted Topper and custom sheets.  There are storage hammocks, hanging lockers, drawers, port and starboard opening ports, solar deck vent, screened deck hatch, and port & starboard reading lights.  There also is a privacy door to the head.

The manual head w/holding tank (overboard discharge has been render inoperable) is to port.  The stainless steel sink and counter top are to starboard with, mirror, handheld shower fixture, teak shower grate and independent shower sump pump, cabinet, dome lights, deck hatch, port and starboard opening ports w/screens.  There is a teak door to the main cabin.

The salon’s port settee has a foot well under the galley counter to form a single berth with storage under and behind plus shelving outboard.  A folding teak dining table can be stored against the forward port bulkhead.  The starboard settee folds out to form a double berth with storage under and behind and more shelving.  Good light and ventilation are provided by four long windows w/custom curtains, a screened deck hatch, and the companionway.

The U-shaped galley to port has storage galore, double stainless steel sinks near center line with pressure and manual water, and a 6 gallon electric hot water heater.  The insulated, top loading ice box is accessible from both the port cockpit locker and galley.  The gimbaled stove with oven has been removed and replaced with cabinetry (2018).

The standup navigation station is to starboard at the head of the quarter berth.

The Starboard quarter berth serves as a comfortable double.  There is hanging locker storage under the nav station.  An opening cockpit port w/screen, and overhead lighting make it all feel light and airy.
