Re: Liveaboard mono with no v-berth?

Thanks for all the feedback guys. I really appreciate it. I'll add the couple boats mentioned to my shortlist.

I would second this. If you are looking for an older fiberglass boat in the 32 foot range for use as a liveaboard / coastal cruiser it is hard to beat an Out Island 33.

Instead most seem to use v berth and quarter berths to get a good nights sleep. Twin sofas would do the same.

A workshop you say, well now we are talking ....


I'm considering modifications to a forward V berth, which is cramped and too high to climb in/out of.
V berth is stuffy and cramped, lockers nil!
She's a 45 Roberts with sufficient single quarter berths (x2) as well as setee berths (x2) in the main cabin, with an aft double cabin.

From the cruising/living point of view the boat requires storage and a workshop, with room for sail storage and cordage, spare anchor...etc.

On the upside this will allow the chain to get stowed further aft and lower down to the hull, simultaneously freeing up the deck bow locker.
Agreeably there may be more weight fwd from all the cruising stores, yet it may free up lockers presently utilised for spares etc.

Is there anyone with ideas/drawings/pictures for a workshop/bosun store who can assist me with ideas?

Your comments welcome.
