It is tiller steering and just questioning the location of the tiller. It's located pretty close to the companionway openning, this is the first boat I've seen this? Look forward to learning about this boat!
Cheers and thanks in advance.
While all steering systems (wheel or tiller) have their advantages and disadvantages, having the tiller where the driver can enjoy some shelter behind the cabin or the dodger on any day with blowing rain or spray is a Really Good Thing.
