The Yachting Monthly Senior
The Senior is a 16' double chine cruising sloop. It is essentially a blown-up version of the 13'6" Junior with only a few minor alterations necessary in a larger boat designed for a cabin with two sleeping berths.
For a hull only 16' long by 6' beam there is a surprising amount of useful space inside her cabin. The cabin length from the stem is approximately 9'6" and under the hatch about 5'. The accommodation opens up unlimited cruising possibilities for two people, with a galley and room to stand up to dress.
