Windjammer Layout #2: Timberwind

Schooner Timberwind has the simplest accommodation plan of any large schooner.

There are two passenger compartments. The aft section has 4 double cabins and 1 twin. Forward are two twin cabins and two triples. Each section has a head. Total capacity is 20 passengers. I stayed in Cabin 1 on the forward starboard side.

The galley/saloon is in the focs'le. I found this space to be one of the most pleasant to spend time in of the schooners I sailed on. Timberwind's deep keel gives the passenger spaces a good deal of headroom and all the cabins have a port. Ladders are pretty steep and the hatchway are somewhat small, so you'll learn to watch your head. Remember, Timberwind was a real work boat.
