Windjammer Layout #1: Mercantile

Mercantile has an interior layout common to many windjammers. An aft "main" cabin has a center center "landing" type area with several staterooms opening from it. A similar arrangement exists in the area just forward. The passenger space most forward is separated into two cabins by the centerboard. Each has a different entrance and more than one room inside.

All the way forward is the galley, which is quite large on Mercantile. Thus, Mercantile has five distinct inside spaces accessed by ladders through hatches of various sizes. Each area has a single head below decks. This schooner carries 29 people in her very "cozy" interior.
