Everyone has to wear a floating overall. It is nice to get inside and out of them in the warmth.

While sailing, reading a good book, or looking at excellent photographs of people, places, and animals in Greenland and Iceland can be very nice.

Ski storage

Main deck

Being outside, finding the fresh air, and watching endless gems of pure wild nature are the most significant moments. Nice chairs, sun beds, warm blankets, and a fireplace will do the trick.

Lower deck

When the weather is cold, windy, and rainy, it is great to sit in the stern on the lower deck where it is less windy, having the upper deck above.
