Windjammer Layout #3: Nathaniel Bowditch

Schooner Bowditch is a deep keeled vessel which affords a great deal of space below. Her main passenger space is midships with seven twin cabins and a head compartment. This is accessed by a well angled ladder down to a large open landing. All the cabins are off this open space.

Forward are three doubles and two single berths. There is a head in the bow. The ladder to this space is steeper and through a smaller hatchway.

Bowditch's medium size galley/saloon is just aft of amidships and is the most bright and open of any windjammer that I remember seeing. Head room on this boat is near the top of the scale.
