To a die-hard yachtsman, though, this space also feels like an intelligently designed pilothouse, giving him 360-degree sight lines and a fully equipped helm. The electronics displays and instrument faces stand at attention in the teak dashboard. Almost everything appeared in my peripheral vision when I drove. Thick mullions in the windshield create small blind spots, but after a while at the helm, I stopped noticing. Powerful pantograph wipers squeegee rain and salt spray from the windshield, though we didn’t need them during our sunny sea trial on Rhode Island’s quiet Narragansett Bay. An adjustable dual Stidd seat likely will accommodate a variety of physiques, and I found it to be quite comfortable during the short time I sat there. Although I preferred standing during my sea trial, I imagined myself perched up there while the autopilot steered to the next waypoint.
