Sleep will be one of the most important needs during overnight cruising. Make sure you get the best innerspring or memory foam mattress possible.

Absolutely true but I'm thinking this thread is more about when at anchor or berthed. If just the two of us I sleep in the saloon when overnighting. Makes it quicker and easier to hit the cockpit if needed. When fully crewed I'll go quarter berth though I do admit that on one overnighter in quite nasty conditions I crawled into the forward cabin (which on that particular boat was nowt but a sail locker) and slept like a log cocooned by the sails.

ps - Outbound .... thanks for the info re Frolli.
