The wide stance of the catamaran gives an enormous working deck that’s as enjoyable for cruising and playing as it is for playing fish. The doublewide helm and leaning-post seat also accommodate a jumbo workstation for rigging baits. The trick I found and liked is a storage compartment that folds down, from the helm seat back, and doubles as the rigging shelf or, in my case, a note-taking desk. Instead of being waist high, it hits just below chest level so anglers can plant their feet in seas and work without bending. Below the console is an enormous compartment — take two steps down to its sole — that houses a flushing head, tackle storage and convenient access to the electrical workings of the rig. Comfortable forward seating and a large aft boarding platform make this smooth-riding workhorse a pleasure cruiser as well.
