From The Forward Berth Looking Back

Keith - mid-October, 2007
You can see the Nav station, part of the starboard sofa (that turns into a small two seat dinette), and the closed door to the rear cabin also on the starboard side, which I presently use for storage. It could sleep a guest or two comfortably. I usually fall asleep on the sofa there and then stumble into the forward berth at some point in the middle of the night. They are both very comfortable beds. The big table on the port side (you can see the edge of it) also goes down into a large bed, and another guest or two could sleep there. Technically the boat could sleep 7, but it would be crowded. 1 or 2 on this boat is ideal, 3 or 4 probably the max for any length of time. I've been reading about a family from Alaska that is sailing the world with two parents and two grade school kids in an older Catalina 36. They seem quite content. The kids are together in the rear cabin.
