The whole starboard berth is useless space, I sail alone. But I do not want to rip the boat apart either. The galley is a joke. With so little space, making a little change is a big undertaking. The ceiling/overhead of the main cabin is a liner. I've thought of attachments but the liner is weak.
Taking doors out ?? Good start..
You could replace the door to the head area with a curtain on a pressure rod. For the sliders, I replaced mine last winter with nice smoked acrylic panels with a finger hole. A bit more work, but you could also replace them with panels that use a woven rattan (sp?) section mounted in a frame. I saw someone who added a triangular storage shelf in the bow of the vberth -- perfect for towels, linens, etc. and high enough so that it won't interfere with someone sleeping there. The same person added a similar shelf in a quarterberth.
