Aft cabin: Lancer 30, ???

Came across the layout for the Lancer 30 a couple days ago and really like it. I dig the aft cabin and fairly open layout.

Do any other boats use an aft cabin instead of a V-berth?

I would have to agree. Saw a 36' Lancer a few weeks ago. Aft cabin with Jack and Jill head was pretty cool. The V berth which was incorporated into the main cabin was pretty sweet. Really liked the layout.

Lancer made some odd boats and I'm not too sure about construction levels, but at least they used a viable design at least a few times (C&C for the 30, and I believe Bill Lee [of Santa Cruz fame]for the 36.)

The 30 uses the dinette/settee fwd/cabin aft arrangement that was a bit of a pioneering move at the time.

Other boats with no Vberth would include the Aloha 32, I believe there was a Pearson model that tried the same approach (not sure), and others, more race oriented like the Santana 35 and J36 did not have a real Vberth either.
