forepeak berth

We will be chartering a Lagoon 440 in the BVI's and have a 9th who now wants to join us. Anybody have any experience sleeping in the forepeak berth? Can a 6' male be comfortable? Does anyone know the dimensions of the cabin and is there any storeage? Thanks
Prost!

big enough for 1 person to be reasonably comfortable,a bit of storage under bunk and in lockers.

toilet in the opposite hull.

the person would need to be agile enough to get in and out .

cabin is aprox 1.5m wide,by 2.5 long by 2m high,accessed by ladder to 60x60 hatch in deck.

the cabin is not really accesable when sailing due to the risk of a wave over the hatch that needs to remain closed,as thiss also doubles up as a watertight compartment.

aircon if I remember correctly is duckted in to this cabin as well,

Re: forepeak berth

Mine is very basic. Just a triangular mattress and a light. Just make sure the one you are going to rent actually has this area "fitted out" as a genuine "crew" berth. Mine really just gets used as a sail locker. I wouldn't want to sleep in there.

Re: forepeak berth

Thanks for the headsup - I spoke with the charter company and they reassured me that the crew berths are set up as "rentable" space and are quite humane.
Thanks again.
Prost!

Re: forepeak berth

Do you think that a couple could sleep too into in the forepeak berth ?
Of course I mean a man and a woman that are close and with the aircon that keep the berth dry enough.
