Amazing Grace sleeps four: two in the forward cabin V-berth, and two on the convertible dinette.  Stepping down three steps from the helm deck leads to the main cabin.  To port is the banquet with facing seats and a large teak table that lowers to covert to a double berth.  To starboard is a fully equipped L-shaped galley.  The main cabin has an ample hanging locker, with louvered doors, forward of the banquet; and forward of the galley, opposite to starboard, is the enclosed head with a hand-held shower.

The private forward cabin has a V-berth with filler.  The cabin is bright and well-ventilated by a large overhead hatch.

The upholstery is a handsome navy Sunbrella fabric w/tan piping.  The sole is varnished traditional teak and holly, and the interior is bright, finished in the classic "Herreshoff" style with bright teak trim. There are 4 custom large Bowmar opening ports and 3 Lewmar hatches providing abundant natural light and ventilation.

On the helm deck, the console is to starboard, while to port is an L-settee.  A dark blue Sunbrella bimini and enclosure surround the helm deck, with zip out panels and doorway.  The non-skid cockpit  is two steps down, and is equipped with a hot/cold cockpit shower and shore power inlet.  Aft is the teak swim platform with a swim ladder mounted below.
