As whimsical as the Day Cruiser appears, it makes a great deal of sense. The cockpit is 28 feet long and about 16 feet wide. Where I come from, that's enough floor space for a dance. The space lends itself to a scattering of casual wicker furniture and lamps in the Victorian style, or to ghastly plastic patio furnishings if you want to stage a party for the children. You would, of course, have the parties catered, so the complex preparations don't overtax the small galley.
