Forward of the galley is a full head with separate stall shower to port and guest cabin/office to starboard. The master stateroom has a queen berth with ample storage. Blue Note has spent 2 of her 4 seasons in fresh water (Lake Ontario and St Lawrence River), stored inside each winter, and easily shown in Portland, ME.
