Topside, a flexible arrangement of loose furnishings and expandable tables allows the enclosed space abaft the pilothouse, and up three steps, to function as both a dining room and a skylounge. Seating is to starboard, and a plasma TV rises from the port console for viewing when desired. For exterior living space on this level, the deck has been extended nearly to the stern. On this open deck, there's a bar adjacent to the starboard stairway and to port, there's a dining table for ten. A retractable awning shades the area when desired. Aft is another of those features that is uncommon but seems so obvious once you see it: two L-settees and tables oriented aft rather than forward. By simply reversing the normal arrangement, guests aboard 4H will have their backs rather than their faces to the wind, whether at anchor or underway, and will enjoy a quayside view when Medmoored. The units also convert to sunpads.
With their first foray into aluminum construction, Sanlorenzo has come up with a winner in both styling and arrangement. Innovations allow the yacht to live larger than her apparent size, and features that let in the outside make her seem larger still. You won't find maximalist alongside minimalist in any style manual, but for 4H, the terms are equally applicable.
