Bunkbeds/Split twins in Cats?

Are there any Cats with bunkbeds or the option of those? If so does anyone have any comments on the usefullness of these? Looking for extra space for a growing family of 5. Split twin beds in one berth would work also if anyone has comments on those. Thanks

What size cat are you considering? Catanas, though pricey have several "family" configs that use a split berth. see: http://www.catana.net/index2.php?pag...g=us&modele=43 Broadblue has bunk options: http://www.broadblueusa.com/Pages/BB...%20cabins.html
Hope that helps

Prout often used this sort of berth option. See attached photo from a Prout 46. Of course, if you're willing to do some modifying, there's no reason why you couldn't construct a similar arrangement on almost any boat.

Thanks guys for the replies. I was told Catana's may be more boat than I could handle right now, although I love the family layout. We're hopefully gonna be a family of at least five on board and no one with sailing experience, yet. But also they seem pretty pricey, as do the Broadblues. They both look nice but don't see many used BB's on the market. My range is 300-400k with a size of 38-43' so as my wife and I can handle fairly easily. Do bunks work well? It just doesn't seem fair to make the kids share a queen bed w/o any kinda separators.
