The interior is designed for comfortable weekend cruising, though many owners have cruised for longer stretches of time.  The layout has numerous options including a galley with sink, stove and icebox and an enclosed head with a porto-potti or plumbed head.  Below there is sleeping for four on full-length settees on either side and a v-berth.  There is and an optional fold-up table on the starboard side of the centerboard trunk. 


Access to the foredeck is best reached by the narrow side decks.  Optional stanchions, lifelines and bow and stern pulpits offer a secure way to ensure safe and easy movement on deck.


The Presto Cat has a huge 10’6” long cockpit with seats that are over 7’6” long for comfortable seating or stretching out.  The cockpit has plenty of space for a full family or group of friends, secure inside the high cockpit coaming, for sailing or dining.  There are generous cockpit lockers on either side.

The aft part of the cockpit can have wrap around seating or be open with a transom door with an attached ladder for easy access to a dinghy, swimming, or the beach.  Tiller steering is standard.
