My Truant 33 has a pullman forward. It is a nice arrangement for coastal cruising but probably not very good for offshore. It allows for standing room beside it to get changed, a hanging locker and some nice drawers underneath it. I am 6'6" tall and the bunk works well for my wife and me. Ventilation is not a problem with an overhead hatch and an opening portlight. It does have a lee cloth so it would be useful on both tacks at sea but I think we would likely sleep farther aft if we sailed overnight.
