The extended coachroof provides UV protection to the open cockpit below without the usual appendages of biminis and dodgers. This cockpit is only one step down from the aft deck and double steering stations with overhead skylights and twin folding tables and perimeter seating in comfort for 10. All weather enclosure is provided with side “nuclear clear” curtains. A compact bar two steps down from the cockpit to port includes an aft facing TV, electric eye side sliding door at main saloon floor level and a servery level skylight to starboard over the stair below.
The Main Saloon provides the ideal place to escape too whilst still being able to enjoy unimpeded vision, from both sitting and standing. The interior reflects quality, warmth and comfort, with light Oak flooring and contrasting dark American Walnut furnishings.Ceiling skylights allow natural light to pour in and accentuate the spaciousness but the amount of light may easily be adjusted with controlled sun screens. Patea’s Main Saloon provides a space that can be converted from an informal lounge by day to a spectacular entertaining wonderland by night. Coffee tables to starboard raise and side slide together to form a large free standing dining table where six guests may enjoy a fine dining experience with cuisine prepared by the Chef. A fully equipped bar to port can offer pre dinner drinks and canapés or be converted into a inboard steering station in inclement weather by simply folding over the counter top to reveal its large array of navigational equipment.
