Sliding open the Manship bi-parting glass doors leads the newcomer into a spacious and bright salon, which feels a lot like a miniature family room. Big windows along the sides and across the front let everyone aboard see everything that’s not aboard — porpoises playing in the wake, beautiful beachfront houses ashore, other boats — most of this visible from the settee to port or the free-standing barrel chairs on the starboard side. The varnished teak coffee table lifts and lowers on a stainless-steel pedestal to be a dining table or a platform for the filler cushion that converts the dinette to a berth. Two loose stools provide seating on the inboard side of the table during meals. Time for a movie? Lower the table, place the insert on it, lie back with your remote and summon the TV from its hideaway on the starboard side. Who’s serving the nightcap?
