Prefer a pilothouse (particularly without the unneeded flying bridge). It doesn't seem proper to operate a boat from the saloon. A pilothouse is likely to have windows on all sides and providing good visibility, and it is (somewhat) away from the hubbub and lights of the living room/saloon.

(As usual, this summer we often ran the boat with only one of the two pilothouse doors open. It was too cool/breezy otherwise. Occupying an open flying bridge would have been uncomfortable.)
