We have a full flybridge enclosure, it's ugly as hell...but it keeps the weather out when needed. A bimini top is actually nice looking on our boat but not effective.

***that pic was taken just after we got it in the water after 2 years on the hard, loose lines and all.

I would think that you could extend the house line aft to the uprights, then across the beam with a slider door, leaving a usable cockpit....with a transom door!

Why worry , you cant see the boat when your on it .

Just chainsaw all the "lifestyle" before listing it.

And why do you care if it looks goofy if it works? That's like those critical of flybridge enclosures. Well, the enclosed boater is nice and warm and dry while the one who doesn't do it over appearance isn't. The easiest and cheapest way to add space aft is a full camper type enclosure. Also has the flexibility of being open when desired. Looks goofy until you're seen relaxing on the enclosed aft deck and enjoying yourself.

Not sure I would say canvas enclosures by the better canvas makers are the "cheapest way"...they can be painfully expensive if done well.


That's why you see so many home made enclosures of plywood and plexi Some pretty nice)...and one of the reasons you see no full enclosure (upper) on my boat.

Cheaper than a new boat? Your point is well made. Still they're a good way to accomplish it.

Isn't that the truth!!! I fear the replacement of my canvas/isinglass!!!

And honestly, my boat looks weird(er) without the canvas on it. Probably just the way we are conditioned since most boats have canvas.

Thanks Larry , that's cool looking . I could cut out the deck and gain some headroom with two steps down from the pilothouse . There is a ton of room under that deck and keep the side decks like a Europa .That would give us about 70 sq ft more of indoor space and still have about 60 sq ft of aft deck . I just listed it here in classified . If we don't sell it we might take this on .
