The Pahi 42 is a good size for family long distance cruising.
The deck pod was a new venture for James Wharram Designs in 1980. Not only does it provide shelter for the steering / watch crew, but a sleeping cabin for the skipper or navigator to be on instant call and has been appreciated by the many builders.
