Only in a Neel. I did see a cat with one.
Btw there is a trap door in that striped carpet section with full standing room access to the "hold" below.

We don't need no stinking badges.

William F. Buckley, Jr. had a piano in his transatlantic yacht, which IIRC, was around 55'. In "Airborne" he vividly describes playing in the middle of the night while on passage. Sounded wonderful!

Whether you happen to agree with Buckley's politics, he was a heckuva sailor and his sailing books are some of the best sailing prose ever written.

So, while a definite "over the top" luxury, if you play, I could see it.

A portable MIDI keyboard interfaced with your laptop only weighs a few pounds and is easily stowed, use the headphones to save juice or patch into your stereo for those Nemo serenades without having to carry the pipe organ.

William F Buckey's piano is on my boat. Was told his son Christopher Buckley would like it--contact me.
