Her equipment list is extensive and she includes a serious inventory of misc. and spare parts for cruising.  Her performance is arguably the best in her class.  Her accommodations, storage space and live-ability are unmatched.  Most will agree, her master cabin is the roomiest and most comfortable in her size range.  Surely, she is worth a closer look.
