In my boat, the V-berth forward and little used now, except as a work shop and extra storage
. There are two double berths, one to port and one to starboard just forward of the saloon
, but aft of the V-berth, shower/lavatory and head
. The doubles are therefore just slightly forward of the beam, but not so far that they are much subject to wave slapping like the V-berth was. I generally use one as my sleeping quarters in harbour, but at sea I use one of the two settee berths in the saloon
as it is closer to the nav station and the aft cockpit
. The settee berths are actually a bit more comfortable at sea anyway, if somewhat lacking in privacy.
