Voyage Yachts Model ID

Which Model of Voyage Yachts Has the Steps that Lower Between the Tramp?

Looks like a nice feature they have and wonder which model has this feature on their Catamarans.
Has anyone been on a VOYAGE yachts with this feature?
Ive heard the boat sails great.

It may be a day charter cat. Those are the only ones I've seen with the ladder.

St Francis has it on their new boats. I can see no use for it on a cruising boat though. Just adds more weight and who is going to be running their home up on the beach, on purpose.

It comes in very handy on our Seawind 1000. Great for snorkeling, easier to get out of the water and the tramps are a good place to put wet dive gear. Makes for easier access for those that have a hard time getting around. And an easy place to get on and of the boat during haulout as we are now learning.

Our Voyage 38 has the front steps that lower down.

I have always thought it was a brilliant set-up that added little weight. I assume the ladder extends, although it is difficult to tell from the photos.

I go back and forth between thinking it's a nice feature and it's a dangerous obstruction on the "deck" when extended (watch that first step) or not.
