The superstructure grows from the stem at an angle that also appears in the rake of the windshield and in the engineering truss. Then it flattens and continues to rise as you follow it aft, creating a wedge. This wedgelike shape gives the ASAN an aggressive look, maybe warning observers that they’ve met a fast and seaworthy yacht. It also visually reduces the yacht’s imposing height, as does beveling the top of the structure along its entire length. Scuppers indicate the level of the side decks, which are very wide, but because they are above the accommodations, they don’t encroach on the space below. High bulwarks add to the safety of anyone who goes forward while the boat is under way.
