Is this appropriate for seniors around 70 years of age? Especially with the climbing up and down?

The bow hatch is the entry. It involves scaling a 7 foot vertical ladder. If your comfortable with say, using a ladder to change a ceiling light you should be okay.

The hatch is semi narrow so it will be a squeeze for a big person.

The boat was built for skinny, athletic young men back in the day!

If your nimble and confident in yourself you should be ok. The hatch ways and doorways require a bit of physical ability. Hope you make it.

Honestly, unless your senior is flexible and able to move, I would say no. In order to get in the lower decks you will need to climb down some pretty tight ladders.

You can get on the upper deck from a ramp, however to go inside you will need to be able to climb a ladder and be somewhat flexible.
