The pilothouse design maximizes three very important requirements: spacious comfortable onboard accommodations, excellent handling characteristics, and protection from the weather. You will discover a comfortable starboard side steering station and matching mate's chair on the port side provides an excellent view of the surroundings through eight pilothouse windows. The 6' 6" headroom in the pilothouse makes it comfortable to operate the boat and work in the galley. The cockpit is deep, and long enough to allow sleeping under the stars. Lumbar support is molded into the pilothouse aft exterior, and drink holders are molded into the substantial bridge deck. The coamings are wide and comfortable to sit on when necessary. Teak and other fine wood give the interior that warm, elegant ambiance that is so important to pride of ownership. The 6-foot, 4-inch berth behind the steering station can be converted into a double. The forward berth is separated from the main cabin by a teak bulkhead, and overhead hatches illuminate and ventilate the main cabin. Two hatches in the overhead of the forward cabin provide illumination and ventilation. Individual reading lamps provide light in the evening.
