Re: Show Me Your V-Berth

I just wanted to say I hate V-berth's because they make me claustrophobic.. however, I have to say that some of these look REALLY amazing! Kudos to some of your designs... very well done!

Re: Show Me Your V-Berth

I'm really late to the thread but I like what you all have done. If anyone has photos of a more "workshop" oriented forward cabin, I'd sure like to see them. Thanks!

Shoot no photo at the moment, but we each have our own personal storage along the full height (such as it is) of our respective sides of the bed. Not sure what your vee looks like or even if this is an option, space-wise (we are 36'). But if you're reconstructing the entire space, consider building long skinny lockers along the hull. Imagine a plywood vertical with doors in it. Even just 6" deep holds a LOT of clothing. Ours have rattan doors for airflow. If this even sounds like an option, let me know and I'll dig up a photo. Good luck!
I had not until our current boat. Our v-berth houses a few hundred gallons of water. Behind that it is accessed from the forward head or the forward cabin hanging locker.

Looks nice, we are redoing our entire interior and adding the reflective insulation before replacing headliner shells. Like this;

Re: Show Me Your V-Berth

First time boat owners so the first thing we did is every weekend we slept in different spots on the boat. After trying the quarter berth, v-berth, cockpit and finally the main salon settee we settled that the best spot and most comfortable spot is the v-birth. So now after reading through this thread we are embarking on making it more comfortable. Thanks to all for contributing some great ideas.
