"The problem with the "helm is part of the salon" definition of a sedan is that other configurations of boats that aren't sedans have this same feature. "

I agree with the statement, however, what I should have said was "they must also have a cockpit." Marin's boat does not have a cockpit, thus the designation Classic, Trawler, etc.

Upon further search, it would seem that a lot of brokers, builders, owners, etc. call their boats just about anything they want! I still have not heard a definition of "Sedan" that sets it clearly apart from other styles.
