If you are a serious cruiser...you'll get more than your feet wet on the swim platform....not often but it only takes once or twice in scary conditions to make you think how could it be better...

the only way I would have a major vessel with a high main deck or sundeck is with a cockpit....but that is just me and my way of using a vessel.
