I think you should consider the capri
22. This boat has a fairly roomy interior
for a 20-24 foot boat. I considered one of these when I bought my corsair
. I am 6'5".
The capri cabin
is quite a bit bigger than my corsair
. I have a dodger
that I can stand under. For liveaboard
you could make up some cloth panels
to close up the cabin
. Around the dodger
I would suggest you add some custom cloth duffles to attach to the cabin sides above the berths for equiptment, blankets sleeping bag, clothes, etc.
I would also consider building a galley
box that would hold your stove and pots , pans, dishes, and utensials. This can be built of 1/8 inch ply with epoxy
filets and could also be brought into the cockpit
. If you are a coffee drinker, a jet boil stove hanging from the ceiling and a backpackers french press will have your coffee ready in no time.
Possibly you should check the net for the smallest teeny microwave stove for "baking needs.
There is some space behind the 1/4 berths that you could set up for storage
of items not used much. Try to find a small handy friend for glassing in this storage
area. The older capri 22's have cockpit
lockers open to the cabin. The newer 22's have their own box built in to the cockpit locker.
