Motor Yachts with a raised pilothouse:
What is the benefit of a raised pilothouse (RPH)? The main benefits of an RPH are that it gives better visibility for a helmsman and frees space on the main deck (below the wheelhouse). With this configuration, a wheelhouse is placed half deck above the main deck, so that the space on the main deck can be used for a master cabin. Many owners want their suite to have 180 degrees view out of it to enjoy the surroundings. Usually, you can find the raised pilothouse on yachts larger than 24 metres and smaller than 40 m. The majority of the yacht builders in the 24m to 40m range, including Riva, Custom Line, Sanlorenzo, Azimut, Benetti, Ferretti, Horizon and Ocean Alexander have raised pilothouse models, many of which present similar profiles. The raised pilothouse is accessed by steps from the main deck and from the RPH you can go all the way up to the flybridge. Most wheelhouses have settees in case an owner or his guest wants to join helmsman there.
