    Reduce the size of your drawings to 640x480, std Email size.
    It looks like a Modified Center console is in your future.

    It looks like you are looking for a generic center console design. In this size cuddy cabins are not particularly useful. You give up a lot of fishing room, and I haven't seen a cuddy that was really sizable enough to provide even over night comfort. My advice would be to start with a center console fishing boat, then add a convertible tent that could be snapped into place. It would provide pretty close to the same comfort, but be removable easily for fishing.

    Most larger center-cockpits carry a PortA-potti in the center console so that isn't a stretch, but I don't think 100hp would be enough if you want much speed. I would think 200 would be more expected in this size range.

    pistnbroke I try

    go look around some boatyards pretend you want to buy second hand then either build the design you like or buy second hand ..get s you on the water quicker ..will have value when re furbed and remember many DIY boats never get finished and have little second hand value even when finished 115 on a 6m will get you to 25 -28 kts

    Thanks guys for advice!

    It will be a modified console boat with removable tent. Indeed a cuddy off this size gives up a lot of space at the bow, so a cuddy is no longer an option.

    100HP is the max i had in mind, i prefer lots of lounge/leisure space above speed,
    and mostly dutch open water isn't that rough.

    Back to the drawing table! :)

    My recent boat is a Zodiac mark2 4.2mtr. It is lots of fun, but only for one day. Stalling, trailering the boat in and out the water, drive home and so on...

    You have a point about second hand, console sportsboats are even bought new reasonably priced... especialy now, we have a bad summerseason, and boatyards are selling their boats for dump prices now.
