Although the cuddy in a 23-footer can be spartan, when I accessed it from the wide portside entry, passage was comfortable thanks to the overhead hatch that lifted, giving more headroom. Bowing to another European CE standard, the cabin threshold is raised, preventing deck water from splashing below. Inside, I found our test boat had a storage locker on the portside bulkhead and a pump-out head beneath the berth. A lounge seat can be converted to complete the extra-wide berth — doing so gave us more than six feet of stretching space both across the beam and lying feet forward. The only blot on the interior design is deck-railing bolts that, though they firmly hold rails in place, could have been capped for a better cabin finish. Rinker’s 210 MTX cuddy ($34,984) with a six-inch-narrower beam and two-foot-shorter length is comparably appointed, and the wide tri-point hull design does a lot to add space in the smaller cuddy.
