Large cockpit lazarette - how important?

We're talking a nice big deep cockpit locker that goes to the bilge. Beneteau tends to very nice ones in all of their boats I have seen. My intent is to find a boat that would be appropriate for long term cruising (years).

If one is cruising, I can imagine all kinds of uses for this locker. In most, I could put a Honda generator, lines, spare anchor/rode/chain, dinghy (I have a rollup RU-260), outboard motor, oil, cleaners, buckets, deck brushes, hooka, snorkel gear, lifejackets ...

I have been lusting over a Catalina 36 MKII due to it's really nice salon, galley and cockpit layout but it makes me wonder where all of the stuff I mentioned above would go.

It is beginning to make me think that it's something that I would likely really appreciate for things you don't want to toss on the back berth.
Curious to hear from others on their thoughts.
