For customer information the steering and engine controls can be relocated anywhere on the boat, at the stern with a small self draining cockpit is best, leaving the massive cavernous interior area clear for fitting out.
See pictures of similar WATERCRAFT lifeboat after part conversion, also gives an excellent outside self rainwater draining seating and steering area, cockpit area can be smaller or larger, free advice on this alteration, easy DIY, we cannot carry out any work for you until JULY 2022, simply too busy, this stern area free's up more interior space and makes access to interior a lot easier, pictures show stern cockpit with seating for 4 persons.
Internally on the 9.2m the engine is slightly further forward allowing the new proposed engine box as a table, the space lost inside is about 60cm at the stern with a small cockpit.
By making a cockpit, it makes access to inside a 100 times easier,see pictures, remove the side entry doors, use as windows increases the natural light inside.......the original steering bubble on top can be removed and replaced with roof lights using the windows from the bubble, also lowers the outside height for low bridges.
