The piano, flanked by two Harken winches, is situated at the base of the mast allowing regulation of all halyards with buttons through the hydraulic system. Similarly, the hydraulic winches are positioned in front of the piano.
In the center of the deck, there is a huge C-shaped room that you can access from inside and, just aft of the room, stands the double carbon rigging and control console from which you control all hydraulic systems trim of the vessel and electronic navigation systems.
