'El Segundo' represents a unique layout, not often found in modern cruisers.  An offset companionway leads into a spacious main salon with folding table on centerline.  Pilot berths above, and outboard of, the main settee benches offer additional lounging space and crew accommodations for extended trips.  An L-shaped galley just inside the companionway to starboard offers deep counters, plenty of cabinet storage, a deep ice box, and a lightly-used 3-burner LPG stove with oven.  Opposite the galley to port is a respectable chart table and a deep quarter berth for storage or crew accomodation.

Forward of the main bulkhead to port is an enclosed head compartment, with manual head (new -- Summer 2012), sink w/ manual fresh-water, and cabinet storage.  Opposite the head compartment is a generous storage area containing a hanging locker and multiple drawers.

All the way forward is a large v-berth, which also has dedicated drawer and cabinet storage and a large deck hatch for ventilation while on the hook.
