Its funny how ones taste in interior can change. I was involved in the furniture industry many years back and at the time all I wanted was a pale beech or ash interior, alternatively while paint with some simple timber trim a'la Herreschoff.
Since owning Raven I've come to revise my thinking. She has a dark timber interior and rather than being oppressive I find it calming and surprisingly enough no great problem in warm/hot weather.
Our new boat is also dark timber interior. She has in effect a fully enclosed cockpit and my gut feeling is that we will spend most of our time up there even in winter as the enclosure with it solid screen is to a large extent a deck saloon with a drop top.
Anywho, Chimbatete, you overlooked one obvious contender from your list ..
This is the new M40 which replaces the M39.
The reason there are not Malos on this thread is because they have not a new model for ages (they only change each model once in a decade
). The last one was the 37, three years ago or something like that (great boat). Has you already know, when that 40 come to the market (6? years ago) that was my dream boat. It has still one of my preferred interiors. I love their saloon table system. Even if the standard boat comes with mahogany but as you know there are a lot of different types of mahogany and the one they use it is a clear type of mahogany, much clearer than the one that was used on the Dehler and in many boats, like the Bavarias for instance.
Today I favor a faster boat but I have still a soft spot for the Malo 40
and if I could I would have a faster boat with the building quality of the Malo. But I can't, it would cost a fortune (it would be a Luffe or a X-yacht).
Regarding the 39, It has a great interior, not different in style or quality from the one from the 40:
By any chance do you know this boat

It has a cozy and good looking interior
That's the teak platform that I was talking about (on the other thread):
The Classic version is much more beautiful, has more storage space but as you are going to find out, it is not easy to come aboard from the dinghy, groceries and all. This nice platform removes that inconvenient.
