The main deck house is the major social center. The simple layout has dining table to port, opposite low sofas to starboard, and navigation and communication equipment at two desks forward.
Descending forward from the main deck house is the main saloon and the library, which also serves as the main office. One with a surprise installed - a wood-burning fireplace with two relaxing sofas and armchairs for an enduring welcome at sea.
Forward of the saloon on the port side are two guest cabins and aft of the deck house are two further guest cabins, four in all.
Past the guest cabins is the galley, the crew mess, four crew cabins, and the laundry room.
Going past the two aft guest cabins, is the owner’s suite. It includes a bedroom with a sofa and a writing desk, bathroom with Jacuzzi and a dressing room. The private sitting room in the aft deck house has sofas, bar and another writing desk. It’s a place to relax and reflect.
In fact, Adèle has three deck houses – the third is forward, with a sitting area accessible from the forward guest cabins or the crew area. Sometimes appreciated by guests who wanted to withdraw and still watch what was going on, it was mainly used by the crew as a social area, especially in heavy weather.
