Pretty much all boats of this size will have at least one set of 3-4 stairs down to the cabins although many have a single level between cockpit, saloon, galley & helm.
Our 6 year old kelpie is still very nimble, although she has gone overboard while underway when trying to access our narrow sidedecks to the foredeck. Her new bulkier lifejacket made her a bit wider than what she was used to. Since then she has decided to use the opening front window at the helm.
