I was really meaning the Bavaria you referenced a few weeks back but I did get a bit confused there. The Beneteau interior while still a bit apartment like is not as Ikea as the Bavaria. I don't dislike it, if I am in a modern state of mind. I don't so much mind the look, as long as they round off the sharp corners. Its more the ornaments and set decoration that I find loathsome.

Me , I can look at an older boat and appreciate the timber fitout though some of the Taiwanese built things had a tendency to overdo the twiddly bits. Then again I can appreciate more modern design as well, I guess because that is what I work with Monday - Friday.
