The cockpit is comfy with teak slats on the seats and deck. Dual helms and rudders give good handling, stability and visibility in all conditions. The swim deck is easy to dive or swim from. Additions are the solar arch, dingy davit and dingy engine hoist (2019). There is a dodger, bimini and splash guard for comfort in all weather conditions. Bow thrusters make her easy to dock and maneuver. The plumb bow, full-length hull chine and wide beam creates superior stability and exceptional high-performance sailing. The fractional rig sail plan combined with the angled twin rudders create a well-balanced sailboat in all wind conditions.
