Two batteries are stored next to the entry with a Tru-Charge charger and Cole-Hersey battery switch and two Diehard batteries.
Further forward on the starboard side is a dedicated Navigation Station with a large desk for charts. The custom electric panel is there with AM-meter, Voltmeter and 110 meter for easy monitoring of power usage. A repeater of the Datamarine instruments lets the navigator access boat data. Next forward is a small couch which can be used as a pilot berth with large storage lockers behind and above.
