Bridge deck clearance. This is the vertical distance measured from the water to the underside of the boats bridge deck. It is also referred to as under wing clearance. At maximum design load we should have 28.5" of clearance and as you can see from the picture this is a clear span with no protuberances. This translates into a capable, fast, quiet and comfortable boat.
The forward cockpit design has all sail handling controls within easy reach and offers unparalleled safety as the cockpit is waist deep and one is about eight from the edge of the boat.
Up swept bows slice through waves.
At over twenty two feet wide this boat has a huge amount of initial stability.
