Deck and Cockpit

Dog House:

Stay safe, dry, comfortable and most of all in control under the fully equipped permanent dog house.

The area features a secure area, with all sailing controls close at hand. The watch-stander has easy access to electronics, and all engine controls. The comfortable seats work well with the boat upright or heeling; the permanent dog house provides excellent protection from the hot tropical sun and rain squalls.

Extra high lifelines make maneuvering on deck
safe and easy.

Security: In rough weather, the Sundeer is well laid out for safety. The lifelines are extra high (32 inches), the stainless stanchions extra strong, the nonskid superb. The aft pipe frame pulpit wraps all the way around the cockpit. This enables a safe climb out to the deck while at sea. The deck Dorades are protected by strong handrails which provide security when moving fore and aft at sea.

Lines and winches: The cockpit area is very well designed, set up so that one person can easily work the boat. All lines are led aft. There are five winches arrayed around the helm station. The 3 main winches are push-button electric. The work stations are well spaced and do not interfere with one another, and no one winch handles more lines than is convenient. The wheel is a reasonable size, and there is plenty of room for one person to step quickly around it while moving from winch to winch, or for two people to work together standing on either side of the cockpit.


Avalon has a permanent hard dog house that covers the whole forward end of the cockpit. Where the port and starboard high-backed settees are not only long enough to lie down on, but are very comfortable for sitting both to leeward and windward. Thus, it is easy for the watch to stay dry, out of the weather and to keep a good lookout. This permanent dog house provides an essential shaded area from the tropic sun and still allows the watch-stander full visibility.
