I'm currently trying to find a 320 with a decent spec of equipment & niceties, rarer than hens teeth at the will be our next boat coming from a Beneteau 25.7S thats been a tad space trying over the last couple of years for us and our 2 kids plus occasionally their mates coming along. 

Would like to hear any thoughts from anyone regarding the sleeping arrangements and how they find staying on board for a few nights fully stacked out like the above.

Thanks in advance

Hi - Not familiar with the Hanse 320 but I had a Hunter Channel 31 (which was probably a tad smaller) when my children were younger (upto teenage years) we would take them and their friends for a weekend. Typically one friend at a time, so 5 onboard. I think our record was 8 people on board for a day sail.
Worked fine. Itís all an adventure to them when they are young and enthusiastic! As a family of 4 we would take off for 2 weeks in the summer no problem.

Hi Sailorted, 

Front cabin is okay, but small at the feed for adults. Cabin at the rear has lots of space in length (210) and width (160), so that's the place were we are staying. Children in the front cabin is the best solution imho. We 'survived' at easy 4 weeks of holiday with a lot of stuff packed.

Thank you both -  that arrangement of smalls up front sounds just the ticket! Hopefully a 320 will come up soon so I can have a proper poke around
