COCKPIT: Modern sailboat designers have forgotten that the crew, skipper and guests need somewhere comfortable to sit.  Many cockpits have degenerated to the point where they are nothing more than footwells surrounded by flat decks, totally unlike the deep, comfortable cockpits of the past.  Anthem's cockpit is deep and luxurious, with seats and backrests that really fit the passengers.  Cockpit seat cushions are very thick, soft and comfortable.  

Many of the new cruising boats have their cockpits located amidship, right in the path of large doses of spray when the boat is sailing to weather.  Anthem has its cockpit near the stern, where spray is minimized, and where the helmsman can keep an eye on the entire rig and boat without putting a crick in his neck.  The cockpit seats are high enough that you can easily see over the cabin top, and long enough to sleep on.  With a bimini in place, this is a really great spot.

There is also a removable bimini sunshade that covers most of the cockpit.

  

The foredeck features a large hatch for sail handling and ventilation.l

 

Anthem as a pair of large Fortress anchors, each with 70' of chain and 350' of nylon 5/8" line, and a  powerful Muir electric windlass.

 

The rear deck is large and flat, perfect for storing a large dinghy.  There is a large storage area below this deck.

Boarding steps are a major convenience.
