DARK SHADOW’s design is absolutely stunning with a ﬂush deck that is almost completely free of the multitude of sheets, halyards, blocks etc found on most sail boats. On this yacht the majority of that gear runs below the deck. The twin helm pedestals are positioned aft and provide an excellent vantage point whether cruising or racing. Just aft of the helm are two large deck hatches through which the lazarette is accessed. An transom door also provides lazarette access whilst acting as a bathing platform and allowing the tender to be launched and recovered. Ahead of the helm is a centre cockpit with comfortable seating for 10 to port and starboard around two tables separated by the centreline walkway to the companionway leading below deck. Forward of the companionway is a very spacious cushioned sunbathing and lounging area. Towards the bow is a large deck hatch providing access to a voluminous forepeak with plenty of space for all that needs to be there. WINCHES & BLOCKS

A dodger and bimini erects around the front of the companionway hatch and covers the centre cockpit.
