Very comfortable, so long as you're paying someone else to maintain all of that brightwork! :D

Curious that a motorsailor like that would be fitted with a topmast.

Curious that a motorsailor like that would be fitted with a topmast.For the sole purpose of setting that jib, speaking of which, check out the two part purchases rigged on that jib. . .

I've always wondered about the utility of wheelhouses like that.

Because they're disconnected from the cabin proper?

No, because there is only room for one person. Having said that I've often thought about one of those snowblower shrouds to go around the helm position on cold sailing days.

You're referring to the white hull in Paul's original post?

Kotters were fishing boats. The skipper stays in the warm, the crew on deck keep warm by working.

Looks like there'd be room for 8 of me in that pilot house.....
Maybe only 1 of Slim, but.........
