Re: Last Boat- Time to look at the end game Cruising Boat
Interesting, that listing is the same layout as the one we've been on, except the engine sits higher in the boat.. hence the large engine box/table that makes the dinette an "L" rather than a "U". The Perkins on our friends' sits low enough to be under the dinette seat - I'm guessing engine access is better here.
This listing is also missing the 'eyebrow trim' on the cabin top - that's a plus (difficult to keep looking nice) The only other thing I generally don't like is the tiled countertops, but the rest looks pretty nice. You could do a lot worse, Dave...
Yes, the engine location is kind of cool and after seeing how clean Chef's engine is he could use it as a warming cabinet for food waiting to be served! throw in some surplus scraps of some nice quartz counter top and you would be set.
