EUROPA is finished with satin varnished teak interior and satin teak and holly soles. 

Starting forward is the Master Stateroom featuring the preferred V-berth arrangement with recent fabrics and memory foam mattress. Below are four drawers, two drop face lockers and dressing seat. Above the berth the hull is lined with teak ceilings and under-deck lockers. Aft and starboard is a four drawer bureau and locker. Portside is a cedar lined hanging locker.

Aft of the Master Stateroom and to port is the Guest Stateroom featuring upper and lower single berths. Drawers are positioned under the lower berth. A cedar lined hanging locker and small bureau with three drawers are aft.

To starboard is the Head with separate stall shower, Vacuflush marine toilet, vanity with Corian counter top, sink and ample storage. Continuing aft is the Salon featuring L-shaped settee and pedestal mounted table. Storage located below the settee as well as outboard of the seat back.  Above are teak faced lockers and shelves. At the inboard end of the settee is a small bureau-end table.

Aft and up three steps is the air conditioned helm deck featuring an L-shaped settee to port. The settee has a custom 3" extension to make it far more comfortable than the standard Eastbay 43 settee. Bin storage is below the settee. Opposite to starboard is a small settee (also with the extension and cabinet). When the yacht was ordered new, reading lamps were specified for the helm deck settees, not often seen on other 43's. A second custom varnished teak table with an extension for the settees, allows joined dining from both the starboard and port L-shaped settee. Forward of the settees are companion Pompanette seats for both the captain and navigator.
