Yes, indeed, his moniker is Auscan, and it's a Cuddles 30 motor sailer version, and if he does not chime in, search him and send him a personal message. Welcome to another from the land of Oz.
We owned and loved a Cuddles 35, renamed the Resort 35, for a number of years in the mid 90's. Lovely cruiser and without doubt one of the most space efficient designs out there. Using the dinette as a double, it could also sleep 4 in bunks for'd, another master double, (with ensuite toilet), opposite the main bathroom, and two in another double below the dinette, in a cunning 'downunder' arrangement, that gave a total of 10..! Not bad in a 35 footer is it..? I think the Cuddles 30 is a similar layout, but just lacks the double under the dinette..?
