partition for privacy or night operation. The house roof has large opening

space connects to the outdoors, as well, by a wide boarding and swim
platform at the transom.
A central stairway leads to the midships cabin deck, where there are three

a fourth guest cabin. Crew accommodations forward include three cabins for

controllable pitch propellers on external shafts through a V-drive. The
keel and rudders raise dagger-style to suit the needs of sailing and
motoring, as well as to enable access to shallow harbors and anchorages.
