If light is everything to Bill Seale, he chose the right boat. The cherry joinery in the lovely salon almost seems to glow from the effects of the outdoors coming in. Fans of the 52 will recognize this layout instantly, but why mess with a good thing? As you enter from the sliding glass doors to the cockpit, a U-shape dinette is tucked in the after port corner — the table drops to form an extra berth. To starboard is an entertainment console with a hidden flat-screen TV on a lift. The helm, forward and to starboard, has a Stidd seat, and the line of sight is excellent. Even better, a door beside the helm opens to the deck — a feature that adds extra reassurance when docking from the salon helm in lousy weather or when there’s no help with the lines. A full array of electronics is set in the cherry dash, which sports a beautiful matching wheel. An integral chart table lifts up to reveal dash stowage beneath, and the AC/DC display hides behind cherry doors above. L-shape seating to port sits atop an ice maker and offers the skipper handy companionship.
