Adventure Wales can accommodate up to 14 people on day voyages and 13 people on residential voyages. For residential voyages, such as the Tall Ships Races, she will be a home for up to 9 trainees and 3-4 crew.

The vessel has one 4-berth cabin at the bow of the boat, four 2-berth cabins and one single berth at the stern for a crew person. The berths are comfortable flat bunks.

She is equipped with a galley (including a 5 burner hob), saloon, two bathrooms (toilet/shower) and safety systems. The galley/saloon area has windows around it, enabling those cooking to see outside at all times. This makes the time in the galley much nicer and has the added advantage of helping to reduce sea-sickness.
