The main deck is where the Apreamare Maestro 82 really shines, and the pilothouse is the icing on this cake. Vertical windows in a full semicircular array provide great sightlines. Everything one could want is here: a companion settee to port, a navigation desk to starboard, and a day-head aft to add to the captain's comfort. The centerpiece, though, is the helm, a raised pod that can accommodate two large multifunction displays and up to six small ones, all within easy view of the fully adjustable leather captain's chair on centerline. If you don't feel in command here, you never will. A door closes off the pilothouse for night operation or for guest privacy when desired, at the base of the stairs to the main deck.
