Below decks
This is a beautifully decorated yacht with an interior made of solid teak and mahony.

Orion features four en-suite air-conditioned cabins: two staterooms foreward and two staterooms aft. All cabins have large-size beds (1,5 m x 2,0 m), electric fans and a private shower/bathroom. Orion's crew is separately accommodated forward in their own private cabin with bathroom.

The saloon is spacious and cosy, with a table seating 8 persons, an open galley opposite (great food!) and a wet bar / ice maker for cocktail hours.

Above decks
Orion is a large and comfortable yacht. The teak decks offer wide walk ways and comfortable seating areas also when Orion is at an angle.

Mid decks you can relax in a roomy cockpit with settee, comfortable cushions and coverage from the sun. This is the place to be during lunches and lounge hour, sipping your sun-downer drink, chatting the day away, playing cards, listening to the outstanding music collection, or just quietly reading your book.

You are into sun bathing? No problem, you can work on your tan on the large sun deck forward while you are sailing away or staring at the waves!
