That’s the menu here, executed with an extra helping of French style and panache. I loved the arrangement of the raised helm station, with the space split between two compartments, or pods. The forward one contains all the sailing controls—the sheets, traveler and Lewmar winches, including an electric one for raising the hefty, square-topped mainsail. The aft pod is for the helmsman, and includes a bench seat for two, a full suite of Garmin instruments and autopilot, the engine controls, and even the buttons for raising and lowering the Quick windlass, because why not? Hop up a few steps, and there’s access to the sun deck and cushions on the coach roof which, come to think of it, has become another traditional feature for so many cat builders.
