Trouble with small (35' and down) v-berths is that they are invariably pushed so far into the bow that unless one of you is significanlty shorter than the other it is simply impossible to get comfortable. At least that is how it is for me and I'm not overly tall (just under 6 feet).
Otoh, we tend to hit the sack at different times, me first, and I'm up and about every couple of hours especially when anchored so a Pullman is a tadge inconvenient.
In the ultimate boat I'd definitely have an island type. (Why an island I wonder ? Surely more of a peninsular.)
