Inside, the ceiling features oiled micro-v wood paneling complemented by slats and wood panels on the walls. A vinyl floor features a wood look, complemented by minimal cabinetry and hardware.
The head features a composting toilet behind its own door for privacy. Above, a ceiling fan keeps the air circulating. A small window helps the tiny closet space feel less cramped.
The kitchen features an oven and small cooktop for food preparation. White cabinetry is complemented by butcher block countertops with a small basin sink and faucet. There is also a wall-mounted table with built-in cupholders in case of rough seas.
Above the seating area, a small shelf features wine holders and an audio speaker. Lots of windows in the cabin area keep the space from feeling enclosed. In the daylight, the room is bright with natural airflow.
Full glass doors let in more light while allowing access to the front deck where the steering wheel is found. The framing is painted aluminum to stand up to the conditions at sea. Above, exposed beam ceilings feature puck lighting.
The dining room table features cozy banquette seating for meals and relaxing. A warm walnut finish complements the kitchen countertops. At night, the custom table telescopes down to transform into the sleeping accommodations.
In the sleeping position, the dining area offers a double bed. A large window above means you can wake up to the sun. USB outlets are incorporated throughout the boat, powered by a 300-watt solar panel for off-the-grid living.
Every Daigno boat features its own shower and sink, with access to both hot and cold water. White tile and grout creates a clean shell in the bathroom, with exposed wood beams and an overhead fan.
The home looks out to the front deck, which features built-in seating, a barbecue and a small table. The exterior features wood slat paneling available in Maibec, Fraser and Eastern White Cedar. The roof is painted metal with a solar panel for electric.
