Lots of boats "run fast" that have cabins, but how often do they sleep in the cabin, or use the cabin for something other than storage

It's a nice place to sit out a summer squall (anchored in a cove) till the rain/hail passes over. It makes the boat more comfortable/useable.

Adds a lot more dimension to how you can use your boat. If you have young kids, like I do, it gives them a place to hang out also.

Funny, this was brought up a couple weeks ago and us cig owners got bashed for just having a minimalist style cabin, but after reading the above posts it seems that is what everyone wants...

I don't really have a cabin but I have room to sleep two. I love it and I need it. A lot depends on where you boat. Overnighters at Put-in-Bay are awesome and I'd rather be at the docks with the other boaters than in a motel. Sleeping on the boat rocks. Actually literally as the boat moves a little with the waves. I run a small fan in there to keep the air moving. My next boat will definitely have a real cabin. Yeah, the guys can pee over the side but PIB and most marinas have nice bathroom and shower facilities. Cedar Point has two restaurants, a pool, stores and other amenities just for those who come by boat. Oh, they have a separate entrance to the park that opens an hour earlier too! Do I need a cabin? H*ll yeah! Rock the docks.

Most of our customers have cabins that stay untouched

I'd bet if they boated on the Great Lakes the cabins would get used. There are just too many cool overnight destinations.

That's a fact.
I'm always amazed at what I find in the cabin when we winterize.
