What interior style do you like?

Have been looking at boats with more traditional interiors, and modern styled interiors. I tend to like the modern styled interiors my self, but that could be because I'm young. Not really sure.

So whats the TF Consensus?

I like the Herreshoff style interiors , maybe because I'm old and I like traditional stuff . Or maybe because I'm a half ass decent wood worker . Those European guys I think are better at the modern styles of interiors .

Yes, there are many boats coming out of Europe with the modern style interiors. I'm not a fan of them. I like a more traditional style I think it's warmer more comfortable feel overall.

Would not be surprised if there's an age bias on one vs. the other. For what it's worth I've recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of my 31st birthday.

Prefer "boat-like" interiors rather than those looking like someone's dirt-home living room. Prefer wood over plastic.

I can go either way on the topic as traditional is so as it tends to never go out of style. However a tastefully done modern interior in muted tones can be nice too.

I'm perhaps in the minority as I was one of the few people on the planet that liked Steve Jobs personal yacht that was completing construction when he died. At the same time I also like Johnny Depp's yacht that is extremely traditional inside and out as two examples of the extreme.

Both styles have a place IMO it is just a matter of personal preference. Am 46 years old FWIW.

Any one that doesn't leak.

Ease of use, easy to keep clean and easy to repair. I was once a guest on a large Italian yacht on Lake Washington, it belonged to the ex-owner of Bayliner... the interior was European and very modern, but entirely finished with suede(!) and wool carpets which looked GORGEOUS but I suspect the yacht would be replaced the first time a grandchild spilled his orange juice.

My wife and I like Grand Banks interiors, Fleming interiors, and Krogen interiors. However our favorite interiors have never been production boats but restorations/modernizations/customizations of working boats. One of our all-time favorites is pictured below.Click image for larger version

Guess im in the minority here. Although i don't have any thing against the traditional style interiors, i prefer modern ones.

See the links below, for what i mean by modern.

This some of our wheel house area . I like simple probably because I can do simple . Solid wood is always easier for me to repair. Plus I work for a hardwood lumber company so materials are easy to come buy. I would screw up a fancy interior with a screwdriver left in my back pocket or caulking on my pants .

To me, that is as good as it gets. Any more information on that would be appreciated.

Most boat designers forget that you will not be eating or running the boat all the time. They put in nice dinettes and helms but usually forget to put in a comfortable chair.

Venus di Milo

Totally agree.

But when it came to boats, when Julie and I saw the Krogen, her only comment was, "perfect, it had more rooms than our N.Y. apt."

Depends if it is a "use it boat" or a "look at it boat"...

Until you get to a certain size...I want a boat that is nearly indestructible to keep maintenance down if it is used hard...Commercial build almost.

I personally don't want a boat that you need to take your street shoes off or that young kids are a constant threat to woodwork.

Modern or old...give me nearly industrial strength....like other peoples's golf course like lawns or beautiful gardens...I'll just look at their's and use and abuse mine in the go-go-go fashion.

Apparently I am a sucker for the classics if by classic is meant old fashioned material like wood, rock, and steel. I am comforted by these in living spaces and also like lots of windows and light so that the inside space is like an extension of the outside.
I think I know in my heart that modern materials are often superior in many ways but am always more affected by the traditional in both home and boat.
These are both 'use it' spaces and often full of kids and young adults, though we try to treat them both with respect as we use them.
To each his own on this question I am sure.......

When we bought this Eagle it was to stark and shippy, so we decided go make our more comfortable and warm. New curtain, counter tops, carpet, lighting, upostery, electric fire place and Webasto diesel heat. No major structural that changed the classic design and look.

So buy classic or new design and change to your liking and comfort.

The Gikumi was built in Vancouver, BC sometime in the 1940s to be the utility vessel for the lumber mill at Telegraph Cove on the northeast coast of Vancouver Island. In this service it hauled logs and lumber, pulled small barges, transported people and supplies and a million other things.

When the mill closed in (I think) the late 1960s or early 70s, the Gikumi was sold to an enterprising scuba diver who, with his wife, converted it into what became the first commercial whale watch boat on the west coast of North America. The little cabin aft of the pilothouse was significantly extended and the flying bridge was added. The rather Spartan interior was completely redone with results you see in my photos.

The whale watch business (Stubbs Island) became a big success and a large aluminum whale watch boat was built for them named the Lukwa. The other year another, smaller aluminum boat was added.

The Gikumi has been phased out of the whale watch business and is now used for week-long wildlife charters for up to six passengers (minimum four). Two small staterooms and a head were added under the aft deck and a third stateroom was created in the small forward cabin.

I took the interior photos a couple of years ago during a special cruise commemorating the 100th anniversary of Telegraph Cove.
