They are for taking up a massive footprint at anchor (or better yet at the dock) for people who need a lot of space to wander around on and who simply can't seem to leave the plush living room sofa, laz-z-boy, and big screen tv at home. Granite countertops and Viking range in the galley? Of course! Huge picture windows? Yessiree! Look mom, there's ocean on the nature channel!

In short, I don't particularly care for them. Not if you're a sailor anyway.

(Oooo... I bet this one's not gonna get a lot of 'likes.')
Couldn't agree more if your talking about the new breed of charter cat that dominates probably 90% of the new cat market. If the trend continues, the hull beams will get wider until eventually they will join in the middle making for a big party barge!
