What, you've never seen any of the newer Hunters.

Why don't builders/designers use a 'cubic foot of cabin space' designator like autos do? It would be nice to look at or sift thru a database of boats searching for cabins of a certain size available.
A 1 foot diameter tube 100' long contains 78 cubic feet of "space". What does that tell you about livability?
"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
