I was about to echo Fast's caution re the pullman. The Womboat's forward berth is about the same proportions as yours. I would have liked to rebuild it to a pullman but when I laid it out in situ there was no way it was going to work unless we raised the sleeping platform by around 12" which so reduced the headroom as to make it impractical.
That said I agree wholeheartedly with wanting to get away from a v-berth. I am finding that as the old joints start to seize up that doing the v-berth shuffle is becoming somewhat difficult.
My preliminary measurements show it will work if using an extension design. That way we still have a bit of access to Starboard of the berth when it's in. The settee may be a slightly lower height then normal to allow the berth to slide over it when opened but I can adjust the vanity height to compensate. It's still in the design phase so it may or may not happen. We can both live with the V-berth the way it is if necessary. I just thought to make it nicer for Fredia, a little more feminine.
