No it is not, other than free space.
If anything, I have removed stuff that previous owners had put in.
There must be living space for actually living. If something comes on the boat, something must go off the boat of equal size.
I have never modified a boat by adding other than what the manufacturer designed it for. Never so much as a small shelf.
Also, i have used hidden spaces such as under a bottom drawer, against the fiberglass hull to store smal stuff like a hacksaw.
I actually kept an inventory book so that I could find stuff in really hidden spaces.
Attached is an example of one of my boats.
I cant find the other pics of the salon (living room), but the room is actually longer and the temporary chair was replaced with a smaller one.
