Ata Marie has a nice swim platform aft that doubles as a dinghy dock. You can access the aft covered cockpit from the transom through a door.  The cockpit is capped with varnished teak and includes a BBQ/refrigerator/sink console atop a gorgeous teak deck.   From the cockpit you enter the salon with U-shaped built-in settee to starboard including a fixed table. On the port side is a straight settee with storage underneath. Behind the port settee is a 40" Samsung LED T.V. mounted on an Aritex lift. The seating in the salon area enjoys wonderful views on both sides, plus forward and aft.  Sharing the forward area of this same level you transition into the pilothouse with a single helm chair and a large chart table to starboard.  The dash and overhead panels are smartly equipped with navigation and instrument controls.  Port and starboard pilothouse doors provide access to the foredeck.  Going outside you can walk along either side of the mast up to the bow. There is a forward hatch that provides access to the chain locker and sail locker.  Aft of the mast is a large deck area with three large opening Lewmar hatches. Back inside and continuing forward from the pilothouse to port, you descend a set of three steps which leads you into the large galley and salon area.  Forward of the galley and salon is the VIP stateroom as well as a bunk room to port. You have great access to the engine from three large opening hatches in the sole (galley and salon).  Aft and below the salon is the master stateroom.  All 3 staterooms include separate heads and showers with heated tile floors. The lazarette (below the aft cockpit) is accessed through a deck hatch or aft through the master stateroom shower. She has over 1,200 square feet of sail area.
