The purpose of this post is to identify those monohull sailboats that are up to 50' LOA that have a shower, that is, a real "shower stall"
that is separate from the head/toilet area, so that one can shower
and the head/sink/toilet area stays dry.
Why this thread or topic?
I have seen that many monohull
cruisers wish they had a shower that was somewhat separate from the head
, so that the head
is not always wet from showers being taken by the crew. For many, that "separate shower" is a key feature that is considered a luxury or even desired on a future boat.
Some boats have a "sit down" tub/shower compartment. One boat I know of, a Nauticat 42 built in Finland
, even has a separate sauna (optional).
While there are often comments posted about showering in the cockpit
(I have done this), and some about the issues of humidity or mildew growth due to taking showers in a typical head in tropical areas or issues of condensation
when showers are used in cold weather
areas, I am interested in those boats that do have a separate area for showering (inside the boat, not on deck).
Unfortunately, most monohull boats under 50' LOA
do not have a separate shower stall . Some boats do, and those are the ones I hope to identify here.
I recognize that many catamarans under 50' LOA have a separate shower stall, and that is a nice feature and a big plus for cats. In this thread, I hope to find monohulls with showers, as they are rarer at this size range.
For the purpose of this thread, please post a photo if you have one of your shower/head IF you have a separate shower and if that shower is IN the boat (not in the cockpit). If you post a photo, please also indicate the boat brand/maker, LOA and year/model.
Also, if you know of monohull boats that DO have a separate shower, post the name of the boat brand/maker, LOA and years or model if you know that.
As I come across monohull boats with separate showers, I will update this thread.
I will post a couple of photos to show you what I mean. Unfortunately, I captured these photos off the net, but was unable to note the brand of boat. But these two photos should illustrate my point.
Thanks in advance for your contributions to this discussion.
