At the same time, overall height above the water of the enclosed space cannot be increased over the
equivalent cruising catamaran without causing excess windage. These two factors limit the height of the central pilot house
roof (at its edges, the top of the windows) to just barely five feet above the bridge deck, the same height that is commonly
found on 40' catamarans and adequate for seating. Full standing head room is available only in the main hull.
The galley (in yellow), salon and steering station is located in the center of the main hull where pitching motion is at an absolute minimum.
