I don't mind light wood on a boat but I didn't see any berths on this boat! I guess you could pop a filler in the v-settee and sleep there but it looks like that's also your salon settee. And I didn't see any sea berths. Am I missing something?

It also looked like there was quite a bit of MDF used.. I don't know how that handles high humidity.

Aren't we nasty.

I don't see any mdf. The pic shows plywood as far as I can tell.

Strange layout though.

It does really make a boat look lighter and brighter! Guess I wr wr wrong about the MDF. I see a little tiger maple there on some of the frames.

Maple has HORRIBLE rot resistance. Not a good choice on a boat....

Way to many sharp corners for me. It's just not that hard to round the corners and much more comfortable when you get slammed into them moving about in rough seas.

Nothing wrong with the use of maple per se, but some of the execution details leave much to be desired. Several areas where maple veneer plywood was used and the bare edges left showing. A couple pretty sloppy-fitting miter joints, at least one obviously filled with some sort of putty.

I bet it sells pretty quick if the price is half way reasonable and looks ok when you look at it. You can talk about a boat being seaworthy, but the glass sink will sell the boat by itself.

The sink IS cool. I was thinking of something like that for Oh Joy when I get to that stage.

The issue I see for some, it looks more like wood work one would find in a home vs a boat. I like the look from that angle. BUT as noted, not sure I want that look in my boat! BUT, it is clean, looks reasonably well done etc. Hard to say how fast or slow it will sell etc.

Nothing wrong with plywood either. Lot of our boats use a plywood veneer. I have a teak plywood on my boat, with solid edges etc.
