Up a flight of stairs, is the wide open SkyLounge / FlyBridge where the view is spectacular.

This comfortable room is open to the breezes, yet can be closed-in during bad weather.  It can be fully climate controlled by its own dedicated central heat and air conditioning system whether at the dock or underway. And the visibility just can't be beat. The Eisenglass curtains with screens will keep out the weather and the bugs without limiting visibility.

 

The steering station is located forward in the SkyLounge looks like you're on the bridge of a much larger yacht.
The steering station is laid out the same as the enclosed version.  All controls are right at hand with ample space for all the instruments you could ever want, even the popular large screen radars and chart plotters.
There's also an observation deck aft of the SkyLounge for when you want to be totally outdoors and under the stars. It's the perfect spot for cocktails as the sun puts on one spectacular sunset after another.
This photo, taken from the steering station, shows the stairway down.
And at the bottom of that stairway is the aft deck / outdoor galley.
There is also a door to port giving you instant access to the weather deck, just as on the enclosed version.
Should you need to go out on the deck in a hurry, you're never more than a few steps away.
The external stairway is covered so you don't have to go out in the rain to get to the SkyLounge / FlyBridge.
