Personal preferences...and you adapt over time.

For example, I sometimes captain an older Lagoon 47 with helms far aft and a big cave like full cockpit enclosure. Really poor vis when docking, engine control access a bit awkward...esp when stand on deck to see, but you get used to. I dont like it, but I'm used to it. At least it has engine controls at both helms. Its actually easier to back it into the dock because then you have great vis!
