Plenty of room for four to eat at the table. This drops down to form a 4ft wide double bunk

The port seat is long enough to be a sea berth, so the table can be left up. Thanks to the offset nacelle there is lots of stowage behind the seat and a useful shelf above. Sleeping bags etc are normally stored in the "bin" in front of the mastbeam and under the bookshelf

Galley has a fridge, oven and lots of storage. By the hatch so lots of light and ventilation (note the boat was still unfinished, no trim or linings, when I took this photo)

A good size chart table folds down against the hull when not in use. Charts are stored in the table. Strings hold table up in use.

But chart tables have other uses. Three teenagers enjoying themselves while I sail the boat.

Then these photos, below, are of the BC Gypsy Lightwave, a very nicely built boat. With only a couple on board one hull can be dedicated to a big shower/heads compartment, with the forward bunk used for bulky storage, like tool boxes etc


That leaves the other hull for two comfortable bunks, this is the wider forward one

and this is the aft bunk

And this the galley and saloon

Again an oven, but this time no fridge, extra lockers instead
