For the most part, Yacht Captains prefer forward facing navigation stations. In this case, it also makes sense because the forward facing orientation works well with the main salon settee and the galley forward. Located at the base of the companionway stairs also means that the crew at the helm can communicate with the navigator.
Tartini Time’s chart table is large enough to work with paper charts to compliment electronic systems. Paper charts are a natural aid when planning passage and waypoint details along with the Raymarine RL80C. Instrument panels give you access to ship’s systems, tank monitors and the XantrexLink 2000 battery charging systems. The Standard Horizon Spectrum+ is linked to a Comand Com mic at the helm. A remote control for the Raymarine ST600 is mounted at the nav station so you can control the vessel under power from below.
The ship’s battery switches are conveniently located on the side panel under the nav seat while the 12v and 110v circuit breaker panel is in the wall immediately behind the nav seat in the aft cabin.
Any serious Captain or Navigator would be proud to call this Tartini Time’s nerve center.
