PDQ32 Altair Classic

Does anybody know if the PDQ 32 Altair classic had CE certification.

Also does it have reasonable bridgedeck clearance.

Ireaney, I suspect it does not have CE certification as I don't believe they had access hatches from the hulls to the bridgedeck. While I don't have the figures in front of me, as I recall bridgedeck clearance and shape are quite good for a cat of that size.

Brad, Thanks, with regards access/escape hatches these are only required (I believe) for CE purposes on cats greater than 38 feet.

The bridge deck clearance on the PDQ32 is excellent for a small cat - the unique center cockpit design and full width sliding hatch allowed for excellent accomodations without compromising water clearance or making the boat too tall. A terrific boat!
