CHIEF sleeps eight owners and guests in four staterooms. The master stateroom is on the main deck with "his and hers" en-suite baths. There are three guest staterooms on the lower deck each with an en-suite head. Two of these staterooms can be converted from present king configuration to twin berths. There is also a small exercise gym on this level.

In addition to the Master Stateroom, the Main Deck level also features an owner's office, day head, pantry, salon with dining area and aft deck. Aft of the pantry is the main entry foyer with a varnished teak sole and port and starboard doors out to the main side decks.

Powered by twin Caterpillar 3512DITA freshwater cooled marine diesels, each rated at 1750-hp at 1830 RPM. ZF reversing gears have a ratio of 2.529:1. The engines have 1,850 hours since major overhaul in 2010 and a total time of 5,300 hours.

Both main engine exhausts consist of blanketed stainless steel exhaust risers with bolted flange connections and bellow flex sections to stainless steel water injection rings with exhaust discharge out the hull bottom isolated via bolted flange butterfly valve. Each main engine is fit with an idle bypass line out the hull side isolated via a manually-operated pneumatic actuated valve. Both mains and reversing gears are single isolated mounted. Each main engine is pneumatic start with dedicated air receiver tanks and each has an electric pre-lube pump.

PTO driven off the front of the starboard main engine via a pneumatic actuated clutch is a 110-hp hydraulic bow thruster pump. Belt driven off the front of each main engine is a Koopnautic Quantum stabilizer hydraulic pump. Belt driven off the front of the port main engine is a Scot engine driven emergency bilge and fire pump. 

Each main engine has a triple Racor fuel water filter separator with vacuum gauge. Each also has a local mechanical gauge panel with digital tachometers and a Walker Engineering AirSep air filtration system with crankcase vent recovery. The electronic controls are Mathers Micro Commander. There is an emergency bilge pick-up off the starboard main engine raw water pump suction. Each main engine also has an Algae-X fuel algae filter.

The engine room has overhead fluorescent light fixtures with separate DC spotlighting that automatically comes on upon loss of AC electrical power. This emergency lighting is separate from the ship's emergency lighting. The decks are painted aluminum diamond plates mechanically fastened to welded aluminum deck supports. The engine room is insulated behind anodized perforated aluminum sheathing and is protected with a Halon 1301 fixed fire suppression system with time delay bottle and a pressure-operated switch. The pressure-operated switch electrically secures all six engine room fans and both fuel transfer pumps, and shuts down both main engines and generators. There is a "pull" at the emergency station on the main deck foyer. Also at this station are fire dampener pulls. There is a soft patch in the engine room overhead centerline aft of the generators fitted with warning lights and horns for Halon discharge, telephone, fire alarm, generator prestart, and SiMon ship's monitoring alarm. Also in the engine room are four monitored smoke detectors and a CCTV camera.
