Re: Center Cockpit Versus Aft Cockpit

When we considered a centre cockpit some years back I found the loss of cockpit lockers something of a minus but the aft cabin a major bonus.

Have to say I do prefer sailing an aft cockpit but visibility particularly under power is a nice aspect of centre.

Quite frankly, if it came to the crunch I doubt the position of the cockpit would be a deal breaker.

Mind you, the very idea of ever having 12 people on board give me the heeby jeebies.
