Where's the Bath Tub?

How is it that we have plenty of what I consider large boats, <40 feet, that do not have bath tubs of some sort.
No, I don't mean the cockpit with the scupper clogger.
No, I don't mean the Hunter 50 center cockpit with the lift up aft berth.
I mean a monohull with a proper bath. Of course it is not for me!!! Maybe wives and cold blooded friends would like a soak now and then.

Do you have to go to a mega yacht to get a bath tub these days? I mean really!

Greg

I saw a Hunter45 with a bath tub at a boat show. The frosted glass door seemed inappropriate though.

I bet that the tubs in the house I live in have not been used in 20 years, except maybe to wash the dog in cold weather. One has been removed completely. IT would not be a selling point to this boat shopper. Nonetheless, it should be doable. I guess it would maybe even be a salt water spa ...

Bayfield 36 has a tub, if you can believe it. Not the roomiest, but it worked! Our boy certainly loved it at the time.

FYI the last time I was 'on' a boat with a tub I felt like I was flying and swiming through mud at the same time.

I'm fabricating a vanity mirror with LED (5600K) lights right now, fun project and she will be proud but your post makes me think about buying a blow up kiddy pool for the sand!

Ok, now that is an entirely different story. I retract my comments about not wanting a "tub" on a boat.

The 42-foot and up Irwins had tubletts... wonderful or useless depending on one's frame of mind...

Some boats are tubs unto themselves.

David,
As you are Cat searching still, do notice there are no posts regarding tubs on multihulls yet.

And I agree some boats are tubs.
