I think Larry summed it up well; the FD boats will be much quieter. Besides wave slap, which I am very sensitive to, we don't personally like the crammed in feeling of most forward berths. I suggest going through the motions of getting into and out of bed while you are searching. Ann once vetoed the idea of getting a Fleming 55 based on the master cabin design, yet obviously Flemings are much loved boats.

It's all a matter of personal preference, for instance, some folks actually say they like the wave slap.

Once again we get back to the benefits of chartering a few styles of boats before buying; it helps clear up or surface so many issues as to what elements of boat design are important to you
