This is because the Tug is essentially a sedan layout where the salon is open to the back deck. No stateroom beneath (well, the Bayliner 32xx/38xx managed a second stateroom) so there is indeed less living interior space if that's what you want or if your climate precludes spending much time outside. Depends on your priorities. We spend a lot of time on our back deck and could not imagine a boat without this type of lounging space close to waterline.
