Accommodations

As you enter the cabin from either the port or starboard side decks, you step into the main saloon which truly has the feeling of a bygone era.  Forward is the centerline helm with a mahogany ships wheel with brass controls and a brass binnacle housing a compass.  Located aft to port is an L-shape settee with storage under and a drop-leaf table.  Opposite to starboard is a leaded glass cabinet with a fold-down writing desk and a bench.  Aft to starboard is a cabinet with lockers and drawers next to the stairs leading to the aft lower cabin deck companionway.  The ceiling was updated with a new headliner held in place with athwartships varnished battens.

The aft lower cabin deck is accessed through stairs aft to starboard in the saloon.  Their are two staterooms and the main head for the owner's party, separated from the crew quarters by the saloon, offering maximum privacy.  The master stateroom is aft and features port and starboard berths with a bureau between the berths on the aft bulkhead.  There is a hanging locker and also opening windows on three sides.  Forward to port on this deck is the guest stateroom which has a double berth along the forward bulkhead.  There is a dresser with drawers, a hanging locker, lockers above the bed and opening windows.  Between the staterooms to port is the enclosed head which features a porcelain sink, a small porcelain bathtub with shower, a vacuum flush toilet, a mirror, storage lockers and shelves, opening windows and a parquet floor.  In the companionway to starboard is a single berth, storage lockers and opening windows.

The forward lower deck features the galley as described below and a crew cabin forward which has over/under bunks, a hanging locker, a built-in dresser with drawers and three opening ports.  On the starboard side on this deck aft, is the crew/day head which has a sink, vacuum flush toilet, shower, a storage locker and an opening port.  In the companionway is an overhead ventilation hatch and also on the aft bulkhead is the door to access the engine room.

The entire cabin is exquisite varnished mahogany complemented with fabrics and accessories that maintain "LIBERTE'S" original appeal.  She is clean and comfortable and a pleasure to be aboard.   

Galley

Located on the lower forward deck aft to port, the L-shape galley features a large stainless steel sink, a three burner propane stove with oven, a full size refrigerator/freezer, a GE microwave, a coffee maker, a storage shelf, two opening ports, cabinets and lockers for storage and a parquet floor.  All appliances have been updated but cosmetically her original appearance was retained.
