    This is probably more your style Richard. A mix of traditional and modern.

    Some of the modern bridges lack a good workable layout for two people on the bridge when it's required.

    Nah, not really Mike.

    This is a oldtimer, ok, that has a old fashioned bridge with some electronics added where the space could be found. But good is different. On a new built vessel I would prefer the style and layout (with excemptions) I have posted in #9.
    Like this one:

    The monitors should face inwards a bit and the space in front of the wheel should sport only the motor management, tiller and thruster and be horizontal.

    Regards
    Richard

    Ah, Richard, so you are a modernist after all.

    Mission control style rather than olde worlde. And the watch has to wear reading glasses all the time, and dozes off in the chair. ;)

    Ok, that's an entirely different picture :) And I like the master console too.

    I missed the wheel in the other shot.

    There are just a few major flaws in this design:

    The engine controls are not paired

    The plotter monitor does not belong there

    The Radar monitors should be slightly angled towards the helm

    The Radar keyboard has to be closer to the helm

    The "dashboard" is too steep

    But there is a tiller at the helm seat, and the radios are in the right position, thats good.

    The second picture shows a sistership, therefore you could not see THIS wheel.:D
