I had assumed that they were one at a time.

But I have to admit I have wondered about how a 'couple' would __________ (fill in the blank) on such a a small yacht.
When my Grandfather would show people the boat, I remember him saying " yep, sleep's three and screw's none." Of course I later proved it could do just the opposite. I actually used to throw wild after party's the year I spent at Miami Beach Marina in the early 90's.

Those were indeed the days.I'd set a goal of three a day for two days running,Lots of close but no cigar so the summer of '86 was a bust. Expo time.

I have a W28- plenty of room for several couples to ____ if needed, she's a sturdy boat and doesn't rock much....

The W28 doesn't have a specific place for a shower, but you can adapt it with a little shower pan/sump. The coolbox i have only draws a small amount, do-able with solar. In the UK, you could probably just do what WingNwing says about managing without a frig, just using ice occasionally if you want cold stuff (e.g. white wine for the potential ____.)

I'd say the W28 you are looking at would be move-aboard ready if she is dry- you might wanna check if there are any leaks e.g. from stanchions etc. Or more realistically, if there are WAY too many leaks. or just get some plastic boxes for storage to keep stuff dry.

Good luck!
