Pop the sundeck and you will find a giant (and welcome) storage area for stowing your gear and water toys. Two swim platform pods flank each side of the outboard and provide ample room for boarding the boat or hanging out at the transom. In the bow, what appear as built-in steps with non-skid surfaces actually serve a second purpose. Upon closer inspection, you will notice stainless steel hinges and latches on each step that house an in-bow cooler, a boat fender locker capable of stowing two 6-inch diameter boat fenders and a three-step bow boarding ladder with anchor locker combination. A bow wash down will remove mud and/or sand prior to passenger re-entry. Once again, boarding becomes an ""easy come, easy go"" proposition particularly when beached.
