I know this is an old thread but in case somebody else runs across it while researching boats with a pullman berth/head forward option I'll add the following to the list.

CSY 37 B option layout.
Islander Freeport 36 B option layout.

Charlie,

(and absolutely irrelevent to the thread)

First up how was Scott ?

Yes, old thread and all that but the Pullman berth issue is worth discussing.

We nearly bought a Passport 42 last year. One of the great attractions of that boat was the pullman berth aft quarter cabin. She also had a pullman forward as well.

The attraction for an old fart like me is that you do not have do the V-berth spin to get out of bed.

The negative is, as Jeff mentioned a couple of years back () you have to climb over your partner to get out of bed if you have drawn the short straw. Also , it seems to me that most pullman berths are closer to being 3/4 width than full double or queen. I also worried about how clammy it was going to get in hot weather.

My preferred option now would be v-berth with wide head or island in the forward cabin. Useless at sea but can then be used for storage of all the crap you don't want on deck for passage making. If berth is a decent width up front, you can sleep with head forward. Decent ventilation of the forward cabin is essential of course. In order to have decent width up front the v-berth cannot be as far forward as is often the case these days which gives you nice sized locker in the bows and moves the berth closer to amidship.

Difficult to achieve in anything under 40'.

For the record - the Caliber 38 has a Pullman too. Its a feature I sought out and like on mine. There is no lack of ventalation on mine and like the forward head configuration. - as for not getting two people in there... rubbish. Most the time thats hardly an issue but also I am no small guy and me and my GF fit in the shower (which is 1/2 the forward space) together just fine. Just sayin.

Tak....you talking two people in the shower or the berth ?


One thing to consider here is location. I'm sure, for instance that if your cruising ground is PNW US/Canada the coziness of the pullman is not going to be an issue but spend a few weeks in the Australian summer and it could be another story.

As I said before my preference is either a forward island or a foward v-berth that you can sleep in with your feet aft.

Once you go with a centerline queen, you will never go back. I actually like V's better than Pullman. Why? Cause with Pullman, somebody's not going to get a good nights sleep.

The nice thing is the room it opens up for the cabin, but some of the practicalities are tough to live with.

CD,

Are you repeating yourself around the house, too?

Actually, I'm not sorry this thread got revived because I have some very important additional comments I'd like to make.
