That ship has already sailed. When you completely redesign the interior to fit your needs... Well, it fits YOUR needs. The average buyer who is looking for a Seafarer 34, is looking for a Seafarer 34. They are not looking for a Seafarer 34 that has been rebuilt to the specific wants and needs of one particular person.

If you are concerned about resale value, then leave the boat as the designer designed it, and the builder built it.

Since you're already past that, build it the way that will best suit you and forget about resale value. Accept the fact that--come resale time--you are going to have to price it to appeal to that particular buyer who just happens to have the same tastes as you, rather than for the general mass of potential buyers out there.

Good luck to you, whatever you end up doing.
