Habitability

Using the deck for the purposes of habitation and food production optimizes the surface area of the boat. In this way all the hold volume is kept for spaces that do not need to be heated (or very little): Water storage (clean and waste), utility room, workshop, vehicle garage, engine room, food storage, safe, survival room, etc.

Maintenance

Usually, intervention on the hulls of steel ships is expensive because you have to remove all fixtures, fittings and insulation from the interior in order to do any welding on the inside and on the outside. With our design, we can work directly on the hull, without disassembly. Similarly, in the case of intervention on the wooden part, everything is removable without touching the hull; the work can be done at the quayside without having to visit a shipyard. A good handyman can do the maintenance on his own, in his workshop in the hold, in keeping with the idea of maximum self-sufficiency.

Safety

The living quarters are above deck, which reduces the risk of water damage in this part of the boat, unlike a boat fitted out conventionally. The more far-sighted can even install a survival room in the hold.
