I agree, Gikumi is one of a kind, I like the traditional.
I have lots of varnished wood inside, definitely not modern,
I hope this doesn't remove me from the traditional.

No, that moves your boat to the coveted.

She's a beauty Ted.

Looking at your avatar, I thought I recognized your vessel, and a quick look back at my 2014 cruising photos came up with the attached. August in Port Harvey.

She is gorgeous Ted. The photo was taken on August 9 so this would have been her last day at that dock.

I'll keep an eye out for you when I'm either dock walking or cruising.

Likewise Conrad.
I think I've seen your boat at Discovery Harbour Marina, but not lately.
We're tied up in Browns Bay Marina.

Ted, that boat is absolutely perfect. Every time I come across your avatar I stop and ogle it for a few seconds. Beautiful.

Regarding the OP, I tend to favor a more traditional style. Many more modern designs look cool now, but 15 years from now, I can hear people asking 'what the hell were they thinking?' In case it's relevant, I'm 31 and have never been accused of being trendy or even cool. My Sperrys and I are okay with that.

I believe the most important factor to me is large windows. Maybe that is in part to the fact that I like hanging out in the Pacific Northwest and the weather can be chilly or drizzly, especially in Autumn. Next, I like a bit a place to move around in the galley. I don't want to feel crowded and I like natural light. If those characteristics are present I would prefer a traditional style.

Because we live in Alaska the galley down makes for a warm boat. Also windows at setting level in is important for the Admiral.

For the boat, I love a traditional teak interior like we have on our Tug (it actually has a factory upgrade package). But for our dirt house, it is modern all the way.

The ideal interior would look as good after 6 months of no use as the day you departed.

A endangered rain forest of wood is great to Visit , but plain old paint interior is easiest to install and live with.

Wood for trim as eye candy , that is easy to remove and refinish works for me.

Prefer the traditional wood accented interiors, but not a spec of wood exposed on the exterior.....unless I don't have to maintain it. Removed or covered all the exterior wood on my boat to reduce maintenance. Don't what to spend my recreational time refinishing as opposed to using the boat.

While not our favorite interior design on the planet-- I've already posted pictures of that--- our boat has what I'll call Simple Traditional. While later versions of these boats have teak veneer-finished bulkheads and sidewalls, the earlier versions were painted with solid teak trim. We've added a few details, notably some bookshelves we made, but for the most part the interior of our boat is stock from 1973. This year the upgrade will be new main cabin cushions of a much more comfortable and ergonomic design. Here are some shots I've taken over the years....

Start with "form follows function" . The boat must be comfortable and safe to use. Some of those European boats have very poor access to the bow for working lines and anchors.
I also don't like those large sloping front windows that create a very hot green house in the driving area. Aft cabins are much quieter for sleeping when at anchor.
All sorts of broken sheer lines come and go and some become difficult to sell as they get dated.
A straight of slightly concave sheer will always be around because it just looks right.
The suitability of the boat for your intended use is more important than its looks. Buying a macho speedboat or offshore cruiser is just dumb for use on a lake, get a houseboat. Buy a boat that suits your current and near term plans not ten years out.

In the sixteen years we've owned the boat they plus one other are the only ones we've allowed on. They're the daughters of good friends who used to live on Sucia Island in the San Juans. The photo was taken eleven years ago when our current dog was just a puppy. The family has since moved to another island and the girls are grown and into their own careers.

Marins boat is a nice mix of painted panels and bright finished wood and trim.

We have plenty of teak and like it but w contrast like a panel of warm white FG here and there. Sailor of Fortune says "Marins boat is a nice mix of painted panels and bright finished wood and trim" .. as it should be IMO. And glossy wood inside is not to my liking. 100% glossy wood inside like the 83' Rhodes in cafesport's #4 post is out for me. I think I swing a bit toward modern style interiors.

Some boats are chopped up into very small cabins and I don't care for that. At least w/o one large spacious cabin or salon.

My biggest must have I don't have. I like dinettes. And as old deckhand says "Also windows at setting level in is important for the Admiral" Seating needs to be high enough to see out while socializing, underway or at anchor. And half of the people in a dinette even get to see where the boat is going. Yes I really like dinettes. Interestingly a common feature of older and smaller boats.

We have the settee as shown below and one good thing about it is one can stretch out on it and nap while the other steers the boat. To turn it into a dinette would cost our small boat considerable storage space. Bummer.
