PS34 Bathroom Door

I am considering the purchase of a Pacific Seacraft 34 however my wife dosen't like the shared door between the head and V berth. If we have guests overnight she would be sleeping in the open because the shared door would be needed for the head. Has anyone solved this problem?

Thanks,

Bob

Just kidding of course. We have a 31, but I've been aboard quite a few 34s. It's tricky to solve this -- although I've seen at least one boat that had a curtain installed.

I think ultimately most folks don't view this as a design flaw so they don't modify it. On smaller boats, getting complete privacy for the owners and guests is not an easy design feature to achieve. Especially on a boat that has moderate dimensions because it is designed for off-shore sailing. If two-cabin privacy is a must, you might need to move up in size to the 40 or look at "modern" designs from the bigger builders (Hunter, Beneteau, Catalina).

Hopefully you can persuade your wife that this is only a minor shortcoming -- the 34 is a nice boat!!

I agree with John (hi, John!). We own a 34 and love it...even the shared door. I think that on boats this small you just can't be too modest nor invite others that are too modest.

I guess another modification would be to hang a curtain at the end of the bed so you can always keep it closed if someone were to enter to go to the bathroom.

Hope you find something that works for you and your wife, but I'll tell you that the Crealock 34 is a wonderful boat!!

What about a folding door, I assume the opening and closing of a second door would be a problem ? I have seen panels on some folding doors as small as 6 inches and they ride on a track which shouldn't get in the way.

Haven't reached 10 posts yet so I can't send you a private message.

Did you go to the Crusader Open House this spring? We wanted to but when the day rolled around we got lazy and didn't make the drive down.

Are you going to the Annapolis Boatshow this year?

Well, I think folding sliding doors and bifold doors can be a good solution.
