Intrepid designed the 410 Evolution with cruising in mind. It has a three-sided house, side windows that open and a single-pane windshield that allows for unobstructed visibility. With the aft and windows open along with the overhead electric sunroof, being aboard feels like being on an open boat. An aft enclosure curtain can shield crew from the elements. The 410 also has two air-conditioning units up top (18,000 Btu each) and 16,000 Btus for the lower deck. They should be great for the tropics. With the 8 kW Fischer Panda generator running, I heard barely a hum thanks to the well-insulated box. The main helm has room for dual chart plotter displays, and a second helm station to port can carry a repeater display or other electronics for a critical second set of eyes.
