The 61 offers two different galley layouts, while maintaining spacious living space and enjoying plenty of natural daylight. The layout with forward galley interconnects the different living spaces. The longitudinal port galley integrates very smart fittings and gives the feeling of being in a Chef’s kitchen… This layout creates room for a large warm saloon.

The master cabin, as spacious as it is luxurious, offers privileged private space for relaxation on the boat. You will appreciate the large wardrobe and numerous cupboards for infinite possibilities of storage.
