Enclosed flybridge cruiser from Australia

What is it?:An enclosed-flybridge long-range cruiser from Australia.

Worth seeing because:You may wonder at the aesthetics of the thing from the outside, but once ensconced in that so-called ‘skylounge’ it all begins to make sense. With the helm, chart plotter, fridge, sink and comfortable seating up top, the adults can be fully self-sufficient while the kids do their thing down in the saloon.

Wide side decks and an excellent galley make the boat a stronger family proposition still.

The hull is superb, demolishing chop and hitting a 30-knot top speed with ease. Down below the three cabins are well fitted out and there are two large bathrooms.
