Cuddy cabin boats offer protection and privacy of an enclosed cabin, where two or more people can sleep, have a drink or seat out a rain. Cuddy cabin offer removable cushions that convert the layout from a wide v-berth to a seating area around a table. Storage bins are located under the cushions and a portable cassette toilet is often hidden in a small area under a cushion. Often the cabin gets filled up with equipment or junk over time, a poorly maintained cassette toilet stinks, a leaky hatch seal may let in unwanted moisture. On the plus side a cabin would allow for romantic moments or overnight stay. It is also a place for childern to rest or change after swimming. Young couples or families with childern prefer cuddy cabin boats, while older couples or families with grown children prefer large and more expensive cruising boats with multiple cabins and luxurious creature comforts.
