Additional Information/Equipment

The aft deck and huge flybridge are beautiful examples of the premium outdoor living space which the DF 49 CPMY affords. The aft deck is easily accessed by built-in stairs from the cockpit. It is covered by the boat deck and offers an area large enough to accommodate a large table and chairs for outside dining and entertaining. It even has a pass-through window direct from the galley, and a built-in cabinet with sink. The DF 49 features full walk around side decks. The flybridge, with its facing port and starboard daybeds (storage beneath), and additional seating which faces forward, is larger and more accommodating than most. It's truly a wonderful place from which to enjoy the view, the ride, a great book, or dinner with friends!
