The Azuree only has a water tankage of 160L and that's really not enough for living aboard. the Elan 350 has and identical problem. I think that this will be the biggest problem, not the interior space.
I think for living aboard a good solution for this issue which is actually a weight-issue is a watermaker. Use the water tank as buffer and for safety but use the watermaker for the continuous demand. However the energy for this needs to come from somewhere, e.g. from the watt-and-sea generator. So its going to be expensive...
