Instead of climbing over the coaming, you simply walk from
the drop-down transom to the bow and back. Judging from
the reaction at the boat shows, this newfangled thinking will
easily find an eager market because even those with limited
mobility can move around easily. An added bonus is that this
may help keep people in the sport longer.
Another head-smackingly brilliant feature is the backrests
of the cockpit settees that lift and extend outward like gull
wings to form large sunbeds on either side. This simple trick
transforms deck space into lounge territory in less than a
minute. This idea was introduced on the smaller model but
with extra room in the larger cockpit, the concept has grown
into itself on the 490.
Newly added are two fun features if you want to party
ashore and take along a portable galley of sorts. The optional
12V refrigeration unit that drops into the cockpit table can
be lifted out and used ashore, as can the portable grill that
hides in the transom seat behind one of the wheels. Just pack
up the beer and appetizers and take the party to the beach.
Primary winches, which typically reside on the coaming, had to move inboard, but that's a good thing. It allows
the weight to shift toward the centreline and lets the crew
face forward when grinding in genoa sheets so they can
see the telltales.
The final benefit of this radical deck design is that the
driver can now sit facing forward and that's way more comfortable on long stretches of watch-standing or when tack-
