The problem with most “convertible” yachts is that they lean too far one way; real fishy and dorm-like cabins below, or a smallish cockpit without adequate room for a fighting chair.

The aft cockpit settee of the Galeon 500 Fly, which includes a telescoping teak table, rests on a rotating platform, allowing the settee to rotate a full 360-degrees so that it can face forward toward the swim platform or any angle in between. When the table is lowered, the settee converts into a sun pad. More...
