Sherpa has berths for six, but is most comfortable as a liveaboard for a couple. Her layout is fairly traditional which makes her a comfortable home in port as well as on passage at sea - a claim not many modern yachts can make.

Coming down the companionway stairs, the navigation table and a large quarter berth are to starboard and the "U" shaped galley is to port.

The main cabin consists of settees port and starboard with storage lockers above and a floor mounted double leaf folding table. Forward of the main cabin to port is an enclosed head with shower and a hanging locker opposite.

The forepeak has a large V-berth with a storage locker to port and drawers and a small counter area to starboard.
