A quick question for you conquest 23 owners out there. Is the cabin on this hull large enough to sleep two 6' adults comfortably?
I am considering a long trip (2,500 + miles) and my traveling partner (my father) and I are looking for the right boat. We would like to be able to stay with a single engine setup and the 23 conquest seems like a beautiful rig. We are basically thinking one or two nights on the boat and then 1 night off. Is this feasible?
We aren't new to whalers, just new to the new hull designs. I have a 81 newport and pops has a 79 13' sport. We both want a larger boat that we can keep after the trip and are just looking for the right one.
As always, any input is greatly appreciated.

I owne a 21 ft Conquest,I think the cabin interior is the same size in both the 21 and 23 ft Conquests.Two people can sleep in complete comfort in the v bunks.My cabin interior trim is top quality.I had some cabin water leaks no problems all easy and quick fixes.I also have the oem hardtop and full canvas enclosure.You can sleep people out in the cockpit also with the canvas up.

I have a 1998 Conquest 23 and I would say the cabin is just about big enough for two adults to sleep comfortably if you don't thrash around too much. It has pretty good headroom and I would say is nearly 6 foot wide. The storage shelf around the wides is pretty good too. I use my cuddy for wonderful siestas away from the children after lunch at a Greek taverna. But there's not a lot of headroom and I can't say that I would want to sleep night after night in it. Incidentally, the one thing my Conquest has never done is leak. Windows and hatch fit perfectly which makes a nice change from so many boats. The cabin interior looks as though it was made yesterday, wonderfully fitted out with lots of high grade wipe-easy vinyl and very few lumps and bumps in the padding.
