Calling all Tangaroa owners! I'd love to see some pics of your cabin interiors...

I plan to modify the interior of my soon to be new Tangaroa MKIV. Currently she has one double bunk and two singles forward. I'd like to add an additional double. For layout ideas I'd love to see how others have done things in their interiors and any insights as to what works well and what doesn't. Of course I will strive to change as little as possible and to apply the K.I.S.S principle whenever possible. I've poured through the pics on the main Wharram site and saved all of the ones that appealed to me so if you have pics already posted there I may already have them.

Thanks in advance!

Our Tangaroa had a similar starboard hull arrangement with the elevated bed, though no surrounding cabinetry. It was quite comfortable.

Carl these are great pics! Thanks and for the write up... excellent ideas. once I'm aboard I'll be taking a lot of before and after shots to add to this for future Tangaroa owners and maybe even present ones too :)

Galway Bay I like what you suggest and it makes a lot of practical sense. I had considered keeping the main hatch area fairly clear for wet weather but didn't think about other coming and going but it makes perfect sense. I like the idea of the L shaped galley but not sure if it will work for my application you said as much your self being we have different boats but I like the idea especially the seat. I may incorporate some kind of fold down seat for cooking in adverse conditions. Love your boat by the way... I stop by your page from time to time just to look at your pics.

Brandon, maybe you find this sketch of a Tang with extended cabin useful. Some things have been done as Galway Bay discribed it before.

Those are great! Thank you! What boat did these come from? Is she still sailing? Budget Boater... Where did your Tang sail away to? Still in contact?

Capgeraldo... Thanks again those pics are super helpful

Man I keep coming back to these pics and checking out your galley... what a work of art! Quite beautiful work. Where did you get the hood for the stovetop? and awesome work on the cabinets... love the woven work. This is exactly what i was asking for now my head is buzzing with ideas. Can't wait leaving tomorrow for the Keys to move some things aboard and spend some time on the boat. Pics on my current cabin interior coming soon.

So Capgeraldo in looking at yours and Carl's pics (Your boat is coming along nicely btw)... I am curious it looks like in both hulls access to the forward berths are blocked from below. Are these accessible only from on deck?

I am not still in contact. I have no idea where it may be or its status.

Here is an old ad of a Tangaroa with pictures from inside

HI Brandon. The port berth was accessible from the saloon (behind the cushions through a "hatch" or a folding door), as well as a hatch on deck. The starboard forward berth was only accessible through a hatch on the deck.

Your previous comments about the galley- the stove hood etc is how I bought the boat. She was built in Australia mid '80s and had sailed to Phuket where I bought her. Fantastic yacht, but she was high maintenance. I did like the steering "pod" being part of the hull rather than the original Tangaroa design on deck. In the photos of the galley looking aft, there was a sliding hatch between the helm and the galley, so you could pass a cup of coffee through to the helmsman on a cold night without going outside. If I ever found the commitment to build one, it would follow the same layout, but I would experiment with a light-weight deck pod rather than the canvas tent arrangement I had.

Cheers.

The reserve berths/storage is only access able by the deck hatches. Advantage: watertight bulkheads, more storage space. 99% of the time in the hulls are spent in the middle sections.

I once did a long trip on a Pahi 52, which also had many compartments accessible only from the deck.  People on a nearby boat nicknamed us "The Meercats", because of the way we popped up out of one hole, scurried across the deck and disappeared down another hole...
