SUPERIOR ATTITUDE. The finish inside the 410 Sport Bridge is decidedly upscale. The stainless-steel sink is installed with its flange below the two-tiered Corian counter. Cabinetry and paneling throughout is bookmatched, straight-grained cherrywood with burled accents. Tightly butted joints are proof of solid carpentry and provide a modern, seamless look.
Step down into the salon and you're met by a burled counter and two bar stools. A breakfast nook? Yes. But the 110-volt AC outlet and phone jack also make this the spot to boot up and check your e-mail or get the latest weather information online. Pick up the remote and switch on the Bose Lifestyle 30 Sound System ($4,995). Its amazingly small speakers provide colossal audio while your crew mills about on the 410 Sport Bridge's lush, padded carpet or lounges in the convertible, Ultraleather settees. Registers for the dual-zone a/c system ($11,530) are hidden inside the headliner's sculpted valances. No brown-painted grates here. Finely fitted hatches in the salon sole cover the engine room. Pull up a hatch and take a gander at those hefty steel beams that span the bulkheads. Bolted onto beds like these, the 410 Sport Bridge's engines are as secure as those of an inlet-busting, offshore fishboat. They'll stay put, and aligned, for the long haul.
Now descend the curved stairs and go belowdecks. Solid, raised-panel doors conceal master and guest staterooms that feature full-size innerspring mattresses and more bookmatched cherrywood. The split head arrangement - the shower is to port and the commode with sink and vanity is to starboard - is convenient when it's time to read and someone needs to shower. The split head can be accessed from the passageway or from each stateroom. Grab the towel rack. Lean back. It easily bears your weight as does every other fixture aboard the 410 Sport Bridge.
