Walkthrough
Classic Rock is accessible from a variety of locations, up the swim platform steps and onto the aft deck or through the port and starboard deck railings.  Up 2 steps from the port side deck are the mid deck and dinghy.  Up 4 more steps are the spacious fly bridge and upper helm.  There are multiple doors to the main cabin / salon. Two side deck doors to port and starboard and an aft deck door into the aft stateroom.  The main cabin / salon is multi-functional with the lower helm, galley and dinette.  Forward is the guest stateroom with ensuite head.  The master stateroom and ensuite head with tub/shower are aft.
Deck Areas
One of the nice features on Classic Rock is the all-around deck configuration. The wide side decks allowing easy access forward or aft to manage dock or canal lines.  The aft deck accesses the swim platform and stern lines.  It should be noted that the aft deck lazarette hatch doors have just been rebuilt and follow original design. 
The fore deck is spacious with ample room to manage the windlass and bow lines.
From the side decks up, is the mid deck that features the dinghy, stabilizing mast, davit and radar dome and ample storage for everyday gear.  Bridge clearance with the radar mast up is 23ft 6in from design water line (DWL) and 13ft 1in when mast is down and cradled.
The dinghy located on the mid-deck is a 2013 Zodiac Cadet 310 RHIB (10ft 2in).  The engine is a 2014 Tohatsu 15hp 4-stroke (electric start) with back up pull-start.
