|The interior of the FH 39 is bright, cheerful and elegant in the Herreshoff style with varnish teak trim and teak and holly sole.
The forward cabin, with its 6' 7" V-berth, has shelves, drawers and two hanging lockers. Space under the V-berth is devoted to the 25 gallon holding tank and storage.
Going aft, there is another hanging locker across from the head door with six drawers just aft. The head features granite counter tops, mirror, medicine cabinet, shower, stainless sink, and an under sink cabinet.
Recessed lighting in the main cabin has a dimmer and is complemented by bulkhead reading lights. A varnished table on center line has a folding leaf to easily accomodate four for dinner.
The galley features granite counter tops which is split fore and aft around the Force 10 three burner propane stove, with extra space below the DC powered refrigerator, freezer on the starboard side. There is a food storage locker aft of the refrigerator and freezer with additional storage under the sink, outboard of the sink and in drawers and lockers forward of the stove. The intelligent location of counter space port and starboard, enhanced by generous lighting makes meal preparation in this galley a joy.
Everything required for boat operations is centered in the pilothouse. The wheel and engine controls and instruments are immediately at hand from the cushioned pilot seat. The chart plotter/radar display is on the port side of the instrument panel, complemented by a dual instrument display with a choice of depth, speed, apparent wind speed and direction, autopilot controls, and VHF. The anchor winch up and down control is readily accessible just inboard of the wheel.
There are two large compartments under the pilot seat which serve as a handy storage area for tools, bosuns chair, fog horn, navigation tools, flashlights and other gear that needs to be readily available when under way.
The interior has excellent ventilation and light with five opening hatches located in the forward cabin, head, main cabin(2), and pilot house. Further ventilation and light is provided by two opening ports in the forward cabin, two in the main cabin, five fixed windows and two opening windows in the pilot house.
