|In about a week, this will be a single sette|
I'm sure there are cruisers who love the two seat layout (which is common on so many boat designs) and there are probably benefits to this design for some. In my opinion, however, this setup is a complete waste of space that would be much better utilized as a full settee. First of all, a settee provides a little more seating room, and second (and most important) it also provides an extra sea berth or bunk. When we first looked at Asante, we did not like this layout one bit and almost considered walking away based on this small cosmetic fact alone. The pros, however, outweighed the cons and we knew the conversion from two seats to one was something we could easily outsource to a yacht carpenter. Which is what we did, and Juan has been doing some great work for us since we took ownership.
|Yes, that is an air conditioning unit you see. Our new boat has AC. Insane.|
