If you find a listing, post it. However, I'd bet people are lined up to buy it already.

The problem is that people live in space. Generally less space = less long term comfort, assuming good design of the interior spaces.

less space = less long term comfort

Not at all, the usual person not sleepimg requires about 4 sq ft of space.

Comfort is determined by how comfortable the space being occupied actually IS .

Thats it , sitting in a great fitting recliner gets zero from a 20x20 main cabin that is windowless and unventilated..
Sitting in the same chair in a boat 8ft wide with big huge windows is a far superior existence.

Its not mere volume , its great design that is needed.

Proper design required the persons aboard to be able to do their tasks with comfort and ease , a cabin that echoes is hardly required.

Hand grips for movement in rough weather are more important than the size of the piano.

Read their entire blog from end to end while bored at work to night. Lots of interesting thoughts behind that design!

Thanks to OP. for this fabulous read, and thanks to the Dashews for thinking this fat outside the box:-)
