I made my reply before I read this(I do have a tendency to skim). I will agree with this. Sedan is a general term. It is a term that relates to the layout and configuration of a boat. Whether the aft and side decks are covered does not alter the basic configuration or layout of the boat. So I will stay with my above statement. To be honest, I have a hard time calling ANY boat a "Europa" unless it is a Grand Banks. For me, it is almost a trademark. If I see a Marine Trader with covered aft and side decks I will likely refer to it as a Europa styled the end, they are all sedans!!!!...
