One of several outstanding features of Senshu Maru is her huge outdoor covered living area, with large dining table, wet bar, day bed and lounge seating. This area could be easily fully enclosed and heated or cooled. It could also be used as a covered storage and service area for submarines and still be used as a lounge.

Above the the lounge area is a very large boat deck which was designed to also be used as a helicopter pad but minor modifications would need to be done to bring it into service. There is a 5 ton crane on this deck and at present 3 tenders.
