The sense of generous space extends into the cabin, which is unusually well lighted. Most of that light is natural, streaming in through the wide Plexiglas cockpit door. Just down the steps, to port, is a large leather settee that serves as the main gathering point belowdecks. On most American-built express cruisers this size, this space would include a galley, head and portside aft cabin. On the 43 Typhoon, though, everything's to starboard, including the aft cabin. That's not necessarily a bad arrangement, since it moves the galley up to the starboard corner, out of the way of the crowd, but with good working space for the chef. The head, just abaft the galley, has doors from the saloon and aft cabin.
