Upon entering the main salon, there is an immediate feeling of spaciousness. My eye didn't stop at a bulkhead that usually separates a salon and pilothouse, and it didn't stop at a wall of galley appliances, often located on the same level. Instead, it followed the flow up two stairs to an expansive pilothouse and down to the open, spacious galley.
A large master stateroom amidships utilizes the vessel's full beam, and its location makes it more comfortable at sea compared to a forward stateroom. Separating the master stateroom from the galley is a convenient laundry-utility room. The galley and dinette are also below, and they benefit from their open layouts and large ports that provide good visibility and natural light. I like the idea of keeping the eating area separate from the main living area. Forward are two staterooms, which Kanter can arrange in a variety of ways.
The exterior details show a practical, sensible approach to cruising. Wide, protected side decks and a Portuguese bridge make it safe to move about in a seaway. The raised aft deck is protected by the overhang and features a comfortable settee. A watertight door on the integral swim platform leads to the engine room, eliminating the need for service technicians to enter the salon.
Sunshine features a simple flying bridge with a basic helm station and forward-facing passenger seat, but there's plenty of space to add such amenities as a barbecue, wet bar, settee, and dining table. While there are no interior stairs from the pilothouse to the bridge, access is via a low-rise stairway from the protected cockpit.
