Yeah, We've got 3 steps down to the side decks and the aft deck is a good 6 feet above the waterline.

Four steps down to the saloon, four steps up to the flybridge. From the saloon it's 4 steps down to the forward cabins and 4 steps down to the Captain's quarters.

You never have to do more than 4 steps anywhere -
