Center entry companionway layout.  From the cockpit down is a wide tread stairs with handholds.  There is a double quarter berth cabin to the left (idea as a sea berth when short handed) and the head to starboard.  Continuing forward is the galley to left and navigation station to the right.  This enters into the main salon and finally the queen berth forward. 
Restless's interior construction is cherry wood with ash battens.  Rather than the standard oiled interior finish, Restless has varnished interior with 5 coats of Epifanes varnish.  This was hand sanded between coats and finished with a satin surface that is both beautiful and easy maintain.
All ports have stainless steel curtain rods and curtains
