Interior layout varies in detail depending on what was specified when new. All boats have a large aft cabin and two forward cabins although in some later models the forward V-berth was replaced by an island double, allowing guests to be accommodated in some comfort.
Some boats do not have the interior helm position, prefering instead to make the most of the large deck saloon. In most cases a 'corridor' galley, reminiscent of the Ocean 37, leads to the en-suite owners aft cabin, although some models had a separate staircase to port.
A variety of twin Volvo diesels were fitted during the production life, varying in power from between 200 and 300hp, which had a corresponding impact on performance.
