I am sure they do already, Have you ever tried to remove a major item from inside the boat. My stove wont get out unless I break it down.

Re: Build from the inside out????

For some reason I think we are veering off from the direction the original poster was going with this thread... Sailboat builders are going to build what their customers are asking for. If most new buyers want a big floating condo, then that's what they are going to build. And yes I do agree that most production builders figure out what kind of amenities people want on the interior and then design the boat around them.

I know what you're saying, but I do think that's a bit harsh if you're talking about some of the newest designs.. in fact I think many of them will sail quite fast, an ongoing debate is how safely or comfortably they'll do so in rough/oceangoing conditions.

For the 95% of we boaters who rarely venture far from sheltered waters, anchor every night and stay put in a forecast gale these floating condos probably do the job - and I suspect to some extent they are in fact built around some preconcieved 'needs' that the market must be saying they want.

Re: Build from the inside out????

From what I have heard about what the builders are showing as sailboats at the boat shows, they are doing just what you ask. Design the inside for all the comforts imaginable and place it inside a sailboat hull that now can't sail for crap.......

Only ever seen pix of HUnters; so I couldn't pass judgement!?!?

AFA the "tube"...Yes! Yer right.... Estimating room from pix and dimensions just doesn't equate to actually being there; but knowing those dimensions and seeing pix of a prospective boat, the CuVol would be a handy number for comparison,

I want one bigger on the inside than out!

What, you've never seen any of the newer Hunters.

Why don't builders/designers use a 'cubic foot of cabin space' designator like autos do? It would be nice to look at or sift thru a database of boats searching for cabins of a certain size available.
A 1 foot diameter tube 100' long contains 78 cubic feet of "space". What does that tell you about livability?

It *may* sound weird; but why not? I have specific needs/wants for an interior; as most of us do. Better to do a rough plan of that first and see what's available in production hulls before shopping; or do "we" simply accept what the manufacturer includes as close as we can get?

In line with that/those questions.....

Just curious
