The boat was displaying many striking new features.
Of particular note: The bow has a five meter flush sundeck with recessed hatches and a large sail locker.

Below the cockpit lies the dinghy garage capable of housing a three meter rigid inflatable with outboard.
Access to the dinghy garage is through the cockpit floor or by opening the aft transom door which folds down to become an enormous swim platform and launch ramp.
