Moving forward there is a cosy offset double berth for overnighting with an opening hatch, and a surprisingly spacious separate heads compartment fitted with a marine toilet (with holding tank), washbasin, and storage. Fitout and equipment levels are to a very high standard, with premium quality marine upholstery and fitted carpets, Webasto diesel-fired warm air heating, and a built-in Fusion marine stereo system. Excellent all-round visibility and ventilation is provided by the wrap-around windows with opening side sections and a large sliding roof hatch, whilst fitted curtains provide privacy when required. A two-stage sliding wheelhouse door provides easy access to the aft cockpit with walk-thru transom, offering plenty of space for comfortable cruising.
'Why Knot' is fitted with the optional extended roof providing a more sheltered and weatherproof cockpit when combined with the removable enclosure. It also has the extended seating pack with premium quality fitted cockpit cushions and a removable table which can be converted to a large sun pad or an additional double berth on warm summer nights (the enclosure has removable curtains for privacy). Good storage is provided by a large cockpit lazarette and additional lockers including an area for storing small fenders or a horseshoe lifebuoy. The asymmetric deck layout allows easy access to the foredeck which has a removable sun pad cushion, and the walk-through transom helps make mooring safe and easily managed.
