43 — By Tim Clark — May 2001

Above decks, separate
areas are even more distinct and cater to diverse preferences. The aft
deck, a few steps up from the saloon, has high sides under a hardtop and
is protected by the house from head winds. With a few teak chairs and
a small table to complement the starboard wetbar, it would make an inviting
space for outdoor relaxing. Up a companionway forward, six or eight people
can congregate comfortably on the flying bridge’s twin curved settees
port and starboard to enjoy lively, wind-in-your-hair boating. The benchseat
at the helm has an adjustable center section in front of the controls
and pull-down armrests that, as I leaned on one, helped make my morning
flight in airline steerage a distant memory.
