Building Bridges
Sun Deck: The flying bridge on the Hargrave 84 has a clever sunroof, with a net to catch the fabric when folded. The entertainment area includes a full bar with stools, plus curving settees to welcome guests.
Building Bridges
Cruising to Java: With a fully equipped outdoor galley, the Cheoy Lee Serenity 68's bridge has a double bench seat next to the helm for guests. Take homey comfort to the next level: The cupholders are molded in, each with a slot to accommodate the handle of a coffee mug.
Building Bridges
High and Dry: The Viking 60's flying bridge offers great protection for electronics in two lockers on either side of the helm, but the slick setup is the hinged Lucite panel over the three displays, allowing them to show their data, even when they're buttoned up.

Paper Tiger: We love the old-school chart holder, made of waterproof Lucite and located-where else?-next to the helm on the Marlow 72's flying bridge. Sturdy rails on the windscreen and counter are ready for service in any sea conditions.
Building Bridges
Table Steaks: High-backed settees and sea rails on the tables and countertops are offshore touches right at home on the flying bridge of the Outer Reef 65. The spacious barbecue area has plenty of room to work, for simple and delicious entertaining outdoors.

Cat's Cradle: This Leopard 47, the Moorings charter catamaran, has a flying bridge with an aft helm for great visibility, a full wet bar, and two forward settees including one that reclines.
Building Bridges
Flying Fish: The aft-placed tournament helm on the Bertram 540's flying bridge gives the best view of the cockpit for fishing, and also welcomes guests forward to a wraparound settee with their own fridge.

View From the Top: An efficient flying bridge for cruising, the upper deck on the Nordhavn 72 has a spacious dinette for alfresco meals. Gentle stairs with sturdy rails provide access to great visibility with an eye height greater than 30 feet.
Building Bridges
Top Flight: The oh-so-Euro bridge of the Sunseeker 86 has a streamlined helm that could have been lifted from an Aston Martin. Big sunpads fore and aft, plus lots of seating around two tables, encourage cruising companionship.
Building Bridges
Seats of Power: Upstairs on the Grand Banks 59 Aleutian, one finds a good mix of raised Stidd seats and comfortable, high-backed settees, with tables sized to leave space for easy movement. Curving teak stairs provide secure access.
