I had a Gobbi 27 Sport (30 feet over all 10 feet wide) from 94 till 2008, and the boat had standing engine room with sun pad closed. Full walk around the engines, only you had to sit low to port side. Interesting for its size, the boat had rather large Volvo41s 200hp with stern drives. I think that boat had one of the best technical layouts I ever saw. Separate boiler box (to stbd), separate battery box (to port), both molded in fiberglass. Separate fuel tank in between the cabin and ER, which you could easily remove (remove hatch floor with six screws and you take it out). Infact once I did remove it and clean it. Also very seaworthy, for example I did Messina to Porto Rosa (over 30 nm) in 1.5 to 2 meter waves to the nose at 20 knots with no slamming.
