The 20 Classic is a smaller Express-style model that shares the same easy-to-handle, incredibly efficient hull design as the 20 Defiant and 20 Pioneer, but offers a very different cockpit and berth configuration. Similar to the larger 23' model the 20 Classic has a welded aluminum white powder coated framed windshield with convenient outside handrails and an inside center grab rail for the driver or navigator. Large ventilation wing vents open on both sides of the windshield that allow fresh air to flow directly into the helm area; a nice feature on a hot summer day. Visibility from the helm is excellent whether you sit or stand, annoying windshield reflection common on some boats is reduced with Maritime's standard non-glare dash.
The helmsman enjoys a sliding pedestal seat behind an oversized gauge pod that accommodates the latest electronics. On the port side, the companion enjoys the same comfortable seating, mounted to an easily accessed storage box, which doubles as a third bench seat. There is plenty of space behind the Captain's helm seat to store gear, a cooler or a deck chair. Seat cushions come standard with durable grey vinyl fabric but can be upgraded to a variety of colors of Sunbrella brand fabric.
Below deck behind a lockable bi-fold door is a cuddy cabin with a comfortable four-piece cushion set. The large cuddy offers privacy when changing clothes or accessing a Porta Potti and provides convenient easy-to-access storage. With the removable center cushions inserted both big and little people alike can stretch out in the well ventilated cuddy for a comfortable nap.
Adding the optional bimini provides terrific sun protection while installation of the seven-piece weather curtain set, including bimini, front and side Strataglass windows, and three-piece zippered rear drop curtain, makes this boat ready for all types of weather.
