The berth under the cockpit is 2 metres (6'6") long, all others are longer. The cockpit will seat six but as on most trimarans the nets are a far more comfortable area on which to lounge around. Lockers under the seats are for life jackets, fenders, spare anchor etc.
The Avalon 9.0 is a big yacht and will require a fairly large car to tow it, but once rigged and launched should be easy to sail with a minimum of crew and enough space for extended cruising.
