Surrounding the seating area forward, a storage unit with two lockers and a position to site a TV. Storage lockers are situated below the seats. Good sized windows give an airy and light feeling to the cabin

Heads - Shower: Situated to the starboard side of the boat and accessible from the cockpit, the heads and shower room features a moulded seat over the toilet, moulded sink with pull out shower unit, mirror, window with ventilator, storage cupboards, toilet roll holder and dashboard rear access panel.

Cockpit: Typical of a Scandinavian designed boat, the cockpit is the main living area aboard.  Aft of the galley and surrounding the rear section of the cockpit is a comfortable L shape seating area with infill's to give seating for six in comfort. The helm, fitted with a double seat which has a reversible backrest so five can sit surrounding the starboard foldaway extending table for socializing.

The cockpit floor is surface finished in teak strip veneer which is fitted with numerous large hatches offering excellent accessibility to the engine, tank space and batteries.

The helm console features full engine instrumentation as well as Garmin GPS and VHF units.

Aft cabin: For a 28' cruiser the space inside is truly fantastic. The aft cabin offers 1.53m headroom and features a double berth [1.3m x 1.8m] to starboard and a single berth [0.7m x 1.8m] to port. Windows at eye level give excellent natural light and there is ample storage space above the berths. A mirror is fitted to the back of the cabin door.

Above the rear cabin is a sun bed giving additional lounging space.

Exterior: Being of centre cockpit design an important feature is the deck space for easy boat handling. 15 cm wide side decks surround the vessel, sturdy stainless-steel rails of 45 cm height offer safety to the exterior edges with ample handrails being fitted to the cabin tops. The forward deck is a safe and flat working area. Meanwhile to the stern, a large stepped moulded bathing platform is located and features a foldaway stainless steel boarding ladder and moulded fender storage. 

Hull: Marinella features a semi displacement hull, with a central keel, from which the shaft extrudes. Aft of the keel is a separate rudder and from the base of this, protecting the propeller, a sturdy stainless steel skeg. The hull features hard chine design with two spray rails. This offers a very comfortable and dry ride at sea and excellent manoeuvrability in confined low speed locations.
