Saga 43 is a great expample of Pullman also. One advanatage is sleeping further after than in a V berth is less motion at anchor. Most boats with them have a second head which is the primary one while the V head is mainly for anchor. There also seems to be more hanging locker space with pullmans as the bulkhead opposite the bed is usually long and has plenty of run for a hanging locker, where in a traditional V berth this are is usually not much great than the length of the "V". The pullman gives an appearenceof being more wid eupone with more headroom than the V also.
