An interesting question! When my parents hired "Summer Breeze" she was billed as 3-berth, and from what I remember, the third berth was NEXT to the toilet. We actually had four crew members on board the fourth sleeping on an extra mattress on the floor between the two main berths.

I usually had 3 crew members when hiring one of the 2-berth "Hustlers" and arranged for an extra mattress and bedding. The smallest crew member got to choose where to sleep on the floor of the main cabin or in the sail locker (which on the "Hustlers is quite spacious) forward of the mast. The sail locker was the favourite, except when sailing at the end of March/beginning of April when it was terribly cold.

The Hunter fleet is immaculately maintained and the "Hustler" sail locker definitely does not smell!
