The Lucia does not have a metal frame. The Life Raft stands on the "ledge" of the rear beam/bridge deck
. The factory option was either a 6 or 8 man Zodiac
raft, I would imagine there is a bit of flexibility with regard to the size.
I can't give the dimensions of the space they use but if you look up the Zodiac
8 man and that will be a minimum acceptable size. We have 6.
