Instead of hammocks, I'd recommend setting up the interior with pipe berths, as that will allow you to pack in more berths and won't have the swing problems that hammocks would present. Also, the outer pipe of the pipe berths can be setup to be adjustable—to compensate for angle of heel on different tacks, and can be moved out of the way to open the space up when not in use.
I would highly recommend not hot bunking the crew, since it is generally a good idea to give each crew person at least one spot or location on the boat that is truly theirs for the duration of their time on the boat, if they're going to be aboard for more than just a daysail.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
