I agree the P14 is cramped, but I think it has more to do with it's history than it's length... it's the original microcruiser and the designs have came a long way since then. I think anything under 15' shouldn't have a separate cockpit and cabin but needs to combine the two to be roomy. Modern microcruisers also do away with the centerboard trunk and mast support.

The cabin bed in my M15 is bigger than the bed my wife & I sleep on at home, and MUCH bigger and more comfortable than our old Catalina 22 cabin. I could never get a good nights sleep in the C22 because the bunks are all designed for shorter people.
