BARBERIC has three sizeable staterooms, the forward guest cabins, forward head, main saloon, and galley, are located in the forward section of the boat and accessed through the main companionway. The owner’s stateroom and aft head are separate and accessible through a second companionway leading aft from the walkover cockpit. This configuration, while unique, provides several benefits to include the capacity for a much larger center cockpit, walk-in engine room with incredible access to all the ships systems, and of course, privacy and tranquility away from the rest of the crew when you want it most. A luxury not always found with a boat full of guests!

Adjacent to starboard, a 6’ 6” long settee with bulkhead mounted brass LED reading lights makes for the ideal lounging area with your favorite book or a proper sea-berth with lee cloth while underway. Storage is more than abundant with lockers both below and behind the settees as well as within compartments under the recently refinished cabin sole, a tall hanging locker, and ten cabinets with sliding Lexan doors, four to port and six to starboard.
