Yes the ER gets crowded for space by the time the usual extras are put in. The master stateroom only has one small portlight and is pretty dark as well.
For the tropics they are not ideal due to draft. People who buy them cross oceans, or dream of doing that. But that is not a frequent event and although living spaces are workable, for the size of boat and money there could be better options for sure.
