Bow quarters

mmi-1.jpgThe bow quarters are a set of six cabins with capacity to accommodate 40 men.
 
Each crewmember holds a bunk and a locker. At the centre of the cabin there is a water radiator, essential to bear the coldness of the North Atlantic Sea.
 
The most experienced crewmembers choose the best bunkers although the management of the quarters is responsibility of the boatswain.
 
The bathroom is by the exit of the quarters.
