Accommodations & Layout

Two private staterooms: Owner's en-suite cabin aft with centerline queen berth, and double guest cabin forward, with pull out settee berth in salon for a total of six berths.

TOOT has a beautiful highly-finished varnished teak interior with and exquisite joinery throughout, with teak and holly floors.


The galley is located on the starboard side walk-through to the aft owner's cabin.

  • Double stainless steel sink

  • Grunert refrigeration / freezer
  • Unique Little Harbor corner door provides excellent access to rear of refrigeration unit, with plastic storage shelves on face of door
  • Gimbaled stainless steel Force 10 4-burner gas stove

Forward is a large private stateroom with generous V-berth with filler for converting to a comfortably-sized double bed.  There is a large hanging locker with auto light and full head and shower facilities to port.  Ample storage lockers are located above the berth on the hull deck join.  Plenty of drawers for adequate storage are also found in this cabin.  Two Frigast reading lamps, a 12 volt fan and two overhead lamps complete this stateroom.


The owner's stateroom aft features a center line queen berth surrounded by comfortable seating on both port and starboard sides. Storage is plentiful in lockers and cubbies, plus a generous cedar-lined hanging closet to port.  Most lockers have built-in lights which turn on upon opening.  A center mirror and vanity are located on the forward bulkhead in front of the bed, and the en-suite head is forward to port with a separate large stall shower and wet locker.  Fine teak joinery is evident throughout. 


TOOT's main saloon is large for her size, as well as being bright and airy due to the numerous overhead hatches and opening ports in the cabin truck.

The saloon features a pull-out berth on the port side with a small teak coffee table.  A custom glass cabinet is mounted on the forward bulkhead for crystal storage with stereo speakers and air conditioning controls.

Little Harbor hulls both port and starboard complement the unique ambience of TOOT's saloon.

To starboard is a circular teak table with a half-circle green leather couch which provides plenty of seating for meals.  Just aft of the saloon seats is a Majestic flat screen TV.  A brass clock and barometer are also mounted on the forward bulkhead.


The aft-facing navigation station, with seat and chart table, is located on the port side aft of the saloon and is beautifully detailed and well-equipped with the necessary complement of navigation gear and electronics, stereo, VHF and breaker panel.
