1) Our cabin above decks and well ventilated
2) Space for a real king size bed
3) NOT needing a/c to be comfortable
4) No more than 1/2 gallon/ nm burn at hull speed
5) Full standing room er.
6) Roof space for almost 100% solar

I could not find that on a $2million dollar plastic or steel boat
But I could find it on a timber one for almost $2million dollars less.
