With smaller boats, because you can just roll off the side like you do on land, exiting and entering the v-berth takes a bit of a gymnastic move. A bulkhead would make it worst, some 31s come with a privacy curtain, something you can add if you wanted it.
With the 31, the big minus is lack of big cockpit lockers, so the large stuff will end up in the q-berth, if you don't like clutter, don't buy large items.
