New flagship tipped for success

This is another very polished flybridge cruiser centred around a big, bright saloon featuring a separate raised dinette opposite a small wet-bar, an unusual overhead skylight through to the flybridge and a three-part patio door to maximise the opening into the cockpit.

The main galley is down below but being open to the windscreen above feels lighter and less cut off from the action than is usually the case. Surprisingly, there is also space down here for three good-sized double cabins each with its own ensuite heads.

Admittedly, they all make do with circular shower stalls that take up most of the floor space rather than separate walk-in showers but who’s complaining. The owner’s cabin stretches across the full beam of the boat, the forward VIP is almost as generous and the third is a proper twin.
