how to sleep on my boat

i have a mistral 16' sailboat i can't sell this boat can never get rid of it a family boat. well my boat. so i want a boat i can sleep on and this is the boat i have to do it with.
ive thought of just beaching the boat but around me all the beaches are rocky and i busy so i don't like the idea of me pulling up and there being people all around me while i'm sleeping or when i wake up. so i think that is out.
so i wanna make my 16' boat sleep able. i think i could make a plywod bed that goes from the center board to the bench and that folds 4 times to make it small. Also i would need to find a place to store food, anchor, bedding, etc. i have plenty of room for storage on my boat i think.
i think that a boom tent could help in overcast times. i would have to put a motor on the boat to make it better for overnighting.
please give me advise for what to do to make it a boat that i can sleep on. Also should i bring a dinghy tied to the back towing behind and keeping most the gear on there and sleep on the on the sailboat open to ideas planning on making a boom ten this weekend.

16' mistral sailboat, And 27' coronado
