Generally, the layout and design of a sailboat interior
follows a quite restricted formula - but its a tried and tested formula based on the need to compromise between a comfortable living space and a tough seaworthy
vessel - I've found over the years that if you step too far outside the formula, one or other aspect of the boat is compromised.
Yachts were at all times and with every concept
more or less a compromise! One should not overlook the fact that this is a multi-functional water-craft here. That is, seaworthiness, safety
, and comfort must match in an overall concept
. There are also still important capabilities such as flexible as possible adaptability of the furniture and equipment
. Not all solutions can here be described as really smart! Also all the more sensitive is thereby the question of design.
