The decks are well laid out, moving fore and aft is easy with good handholds and wide side decks. There are two large safety railings at the base of the mast for working in the area. On the Aft Deck there are two Deck Boxes for storage. The cockpit is large with a Wheel Pedestal Helm and a Teak Folding Cockpit Table. The Full Bimini Enclosure provides great visibility with Vinyl Windows forward and above for viewing the sails etc.
