Continue the tour with the helm deck, inviting her to nestle into the custom captain’s chair with its twin flip-up bolsters. Don’t get sidetracked by the huge area for flush-mounting a large multifunction display. Point out the full-width windshield that protects her from wind and spray, and the fiberglass hardtop to shade the family. You’ll like the hardtop’s six rail-mount rod holders and dual overhead electronics boxes. You might drift away thinking about the 185-quart fish box under the starboard seat or the 30-gallon livewell under the port seat.
Tell her about the cushions that fit the topsides of both the livewell and fish box, as well as the wraparound backrests and folding footrests. As the tour moves farther aft, show her the fold-down, cushioned jump seats in both corners of the cockpit. And if she asks about the six gunwale rod holders and cutting boards with knife-and-pliers holders on either side of the transom, quickly set up the optional pedestal dining table in the middle of the cockpit. That should distract her.
Next, walk her out to the swim platform. Don’t tell her how this lets you work a fish around the stern, but instead how the integrated handrails will allow the family to access the folding swim ladder to take a dip.
Pitch the tackle cabinets in each inwale and in each seat pod as great places to store her goodies like sunglasses, cell phone and sunscreen (as if she could find room amid all your fishing gear).
