The windscreen for the main cabin and pilothouse rises from the cabin top with two large forward-facing windows with wipers.

The aft cockpit has access to the lazarette, an opening transom door offset to starboard leading to swim platform, and Dutch-style door into the aft stateroom offset to port. A ladder to starboard leads from the aft cockpit to the cabin top over the master stateroom. Handrails all-around and two access gates with steps from the side decks at either side. The flybridge is two steps up from the aft cabin top and contains two fore-and-aft bench seats with storage and LPG lockers beneath, and the flybridge helm station.  Complete Sunbrella Cadet Gray canvas bridge enclosure with both Phifertex mesh sunscreen and Strata & Crystal glass roll-up windows.(2017)  A tabernacle mast  (Spinlock line clutches added- 2018) and boom is located on the lower cabin top and supported with a frame that bolts to the flybridge deck.
