With the transom door open, the beach club is expanded to an impressive 25 square metres. A large swimming pool is placed on the Portuguese deck forward of the bridge that can be filled with seawater while a second 4x2-metre pool on the sundeck complete with American bar setup, 50-inch TV and barbeque area makes for a more family setting.
