Having the owner's stateroom under the cockpit suits me just fine. It can't have standing headroom everywhere, but you'll find it where you need it-in the head and the dressing area right abaft the engineroom. Zaraffa carries a large percentage of her maximum beam well aft, so the after cabin isn't as claustrophobic as its location suggests. Overhead hatches and a companionway from the after cockpit naturally brighten and ventilate the space. A tiny desk hung onto the engineroom's after bulkhead holds a laptop PC, which displays navigational data. Two Pullman berths, one above the master and the other over a built-in single opposite the master double, add sleeping space for overnight races. The forward stateroom has two built-in singles, two Pullmans and a private head. All the Pullmans adjust to compensate for the boat's heeling angle, so the crew can sleep on the level.
