Based on how you plant to use the boat there will be a deck layout that is right for you:
- Standard layout
- Passenger Layout
- Lounge layout
Larger boats will typically give the buyer an option whether it should be equipped with a cabin below deck (allowing for a restful retreat during the day or an option for overnight stay) or not. Boats without a cabin are lighter and are easier to get around on. Boats with a cabin are more luxurious and typically weigh more.
When looking at the top level of a yacht from above the seats / benches might be configured in the shape of a C with the C opening up to a table. The alternative to this is a U-configuration with two lines of benches opposite from a table and another seating option at the bottom of the table. C-configurations are most frequently found on smaller boats and offer a more intimate feeling for a family picknick. U-configurations are one of the differentiators of Alfastreet Marine, providing a much more luxurious ambiance known from bigger yachts, easier access to the boat and each bench can be used as a full-length sun lounge. Whether it’s C or U configuration that you prefer ultimately comes down to personal preference.
A the very front of the boat (the “bow”) there are commonly two options to choose from. One option is to have a sunken seating area in the front (boats with this style are often called “bowriders”). This means that 4-8 people can enjoy sitting in the front of the boat enjoying a view but also enjoying the boat’s performance at its most extreme. As the boats tip jumps up and down with each wave at high speeds it brings the adrenaline rush of excitement to the passengers. When the vessel is anchored it is simply a nice area to sit, sunbathe and carry on a conversation. The opposite of the bow seating configuration is the “deck” configuration. This means there is a smooth deck closing off the boat at the tip, allowing you to sit or lie on the tip. This is also a very popular configuration as it normally allows two full size adults to lie down side-by-side and enjoy the view. For those customers choosing a cabin configuration, the sundeck option is mandatory since the cabin will be situated below the sundeck.
