It certainly boasts its share of big-boat features. The bow scuff plate, a chunky hunk of stainless steel, is more than a pretty accessory, as anyone who has ever hauled an anchor while a boat is pitching can avow. The galvanic isolator helps prevent corrosion that can occur when connecting to questionable shorepower, something that can happen at any dock. The engine compartment is gel coated and brightly lit. Plus, I had no trouble grabbing the pumps, dipsticks, filters, batteries, and other maintenance points. Even the water heater, which is often shoehorned into boats this size, will be a snap to winterize. Yachty "soft" touches include the frosted port in the head, faux teak cabin sole and steps, and a fiddle rail installed around the single-burner galley stove that Monterey placed in the faux-granite counter.
