Yes, there are two (or more) flybridge designs. Mine has seating port and starboard which are molded into the helm area, and open space aft. Again, the flybridge dock box doubles as seating. We have a folding bench seat from West Marine that we put on the dock boxes if we want back support. We call it the "Granny Seat" after Granny Clampett's seat on the Beverly Hillbilly's truck.
I like how your dock box is mounted on the aft deck.
Iím going to give that idea more consideration.
