On deck the cockpit sole is at deck level surrounded by high coamings and protected forward by the high bulkhead of the house. There appears to be room for a large, deep lazarette and the drawings show a hard-bottom inflatable stowed on the flush foredeck. Unusual for a modern cruising boat, the Nevis 62 has a full keel with the rudder attached.
There's an aperture for the propeller. Draft is a moderate 7 foot, 3 inches, with a 42 percent ballast/displacement ratio.
