Shannon 28, PSC Dana, PSC 31, and some Flickas have the head by the companion way. I think you are right on that one. Makes a good place to toss soggy foul weather gear without messing up the whole cabin.

The Mark I PSC Orion's v-berth is laughably short on the port side due to the head location and width. Haven't seen a Mark II yet, but the head is apparently narrower to allow a longer bed.

The bats usually prefer the v-berth...it's quieter and darker... and they can sleep better there during the day.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

MKII doesn't have the same head configuration to take up that space. The V is full sized all the way across. Depending on how I feel, sometimes I will sleep long ways across it (sideways?), and I'm 6'0" and fit with extra room.

maybe I can add to thsi thread, what is teh smallest boat that you would feel safe in crossing the ocean, or making very long passages, who knows, maybe an extended circumnav. i am talking smallest you would feel safe, not comfortable necessarily. (i've been living in studio apartments in Manhatten for years, now montreal, i have a big apartment adn it's too much)

I love the smaller PSC the mroe I look at it, acept the fact that there is no head on teh smallest of them, all be it probably too small to cross with.

Basically I want to have the most highquality, small package I can sense I can afford a high quality large boat.

I'd rather have a tank of a little boat that I can afford to do 100% and have the highest quality of everything.

People cross oceans on Flickas all the time. There are Flickas that have a head built in that is right to starboard as you go down the companionway. Flickas come in a few different flavors, some have outboards, some inboards. Some have a proper head, some a porta-potti, some where even ferro-cement. They might be a little small though, imagine 30 days in a minivan.
Danas are really nice boats, and they meet the head by the companionway requirement.
Here are a few:
