Layout of Longbow

This much more detailed diagram should help to explain how Longbow's layout allows privacy in several cabins. We realise that it may not fit on one screen, but we think it's worth the space. It should print on one page.

[Thumbnail] Berths 8 and 9 occupy the "for'ard" (forward) cabin, with a large hatchway onto the deck. There is plenty of locker space, including a clothes rail. This cabin has its own bathroom with toilet ("heads") and shower. The cabin can be used as a double by inserting a triangular infill.

[Thumbnail] Berths 6 and 7 form a double bunk in a separate cabin. There are hatches above both the bunk and the corridor. There is another wardrobe here, cupboard space and a small desk at the foot of the bunk. The bathroom again has toilet and shower, and has one door from this cabin and another accessible from the saloon. It is possible to configure this bunk as a twin with a vertical board.

Berth 5 wraps around the dining table, which folds to half the size shown here when not in use. There are folding chairs available so people can sit around all four sides.

Berth 4, on the port side of the main saloon, has some shelf and storage space behind it, and is within arm's reach of the library.

Berth 3, in the upper saloon, is rather higher than the others and thus has excellent views out of the windows.

[Thumbnail image of galley] The galley (kitchen) has a gas oven and 4-ring hob, fridge, freezer and of course sink. It is set slightly down from the upper saloon and partly enclosed so that the cook is safely out of the way of people passing by.

The companionway that gives access out to the cockpit is above the storage space (orange) next to the galley. On the other side of the companionway, a step goes down into the "aft" (rear) cabin.

Berths 1 and 2 form a double bunk in the aft cabin, which also has its own toilet and shower. The navigation instruments (radio, GPS, radar etc.) are around the table in here, so this cabin is usually occupied by the skipper. However, he can vacate it for a third couple if required. Despite being under the cockpit, there is perfectly good headroom in here because that part of the cockpit is raised.

Storage for food, equipment etc is not shown.
