Need Opion about boats...
Check out www.nauticat.com for more info. They are currently producing two distinct breeds of cat: The roomier motorsailor types and the better-sailing pilothouse sailboats, like my 42. It''s interesting that you ask if they are "just another pilothouse motorsailor" as it seems that very few true pilothouse designs are offered these days. There are quite a few "raised salon" types with front facing windows, but these usually do not provide the visibility necessary to keep watch frpom below.
As for "girly" interiors on Catalinas, that''s more a comment on their decor rather than their layout. I once saw one exhibited at a boatshow with stuffed animals (poodles, teddybears, etc.) all over the largest berth!
