The Catalina 42 original layout was similar (sorry, over 40); I believe one of the Passport 40 layouts have a head forward/pullman, and the Nonsuch Ultra 30 (and perhaps the larger versions) have similar doubles too.

It is an attractive option, except for trying to use the head underway; it's at a maximum motion part of the boat.

But the pullman berth nicely gets away from the toe wars in a typical Vberth (esp the newer boats where the interiors are so pushed out to the edges that often the V berth cushions literally come to a point) and they are easier to get into/out of.
