As with so many of these 'modern' barges there's no outside deck space to use, unless you want to perch on the cabin roof. OK in the UK but not in Southern France! Personally I'd do away with whatever is underneath the roof behind the wheelhouse, have an aft deck to use for dining and lounging with doors in the aft end of the wheelhouse. Still plenty of room for two cabins forward of the saloon on a 60 footer.
