Field-bolted steel moment frames were used to keep the floor plans relatively wall free, guaranteeing a view from anywhere in the boat. The arched roof is constructed of exposed glulam beams which frame out two pilot houses, adding to the volume of the upper level. The boat also features decks fore and aft...
