From an operational perspective, a centrally positioned helm position provides her coxswain with clear uninterrupted vision equally to port and st/bd, large side and overhead windows, all double glazed to prevent misting assist visibility when alongside ships. Her helm position has been especially designed to provide a focused and ergonomically efficient operators environment, which allows the coxswain to take full advantage of the Interceptors fine responsive handling.
The 55 pilot has a very high level of fit out throughout the craft with the large wheelhouse providing enough space to allow combining the standard 6 pilot seating arrangement (although seating for up to 12 pilots is available) on CAB hydraulic sprung seats, with a VIP area in the aft section of the cabin, comprising a very comfortable 6 person seating dinette with a table and a 6ft worktop opposite with substantial locker space incorporated. All internal furnishings are from walnut effect laminate, white headlining and grey sidelining providing a warm, high quality yet practical environment.
One of the main advantages of Safehavenís design is the huge forward accommodation area allowed by placing the engines centrally under the wheelhouse. Forward there is sleeping accommodation afforded by traditional V berths combined with large bunk berths. A comfortable seating area along side the large galley area, a full size heads compartment with sink, grey waste management with holding tanks. Large wet lockers and under deck storage enhance her functionality and provides a very comfortable crew environment
