No dust on it, I dust regularly. This is the boat we live on currently, and the fireplace is going as I type. She is 40'' loa, 12'' beam, and pretty much all house. With 15'' cathedral ceilings, skylights, a ceiling fan, and wood stove in the main salon(living room), pressure and hot water galley with oven and plenty of counter space, and storage. There is an upstairs loft and a queen size berth in the aft stateroom, plus my office in the very aft with a huge sliding picture window looking out over the marina as I work. plus 70 gallons water, power inverter, etc etc.
It is really very nice and comfortable, we plan on living on it until we finish rebuilding our formosa 41, But we want to start doing some short cruising now, and would be willing to trade it for rugged "working" old sailboat in the 40ish range.
