Abstract

Pleasure craft, sail or motor, provided with means and equipment intended to constitute a floating dwelling, characterized in that it is arranged so that the passenger living space is separated into two parts, namely a first part comprising sleeping means and sanitary installations, and disposed under the deck, and a second part located on the deck, substantially rearward, open to the outside, and comprising facilities suitable for relaxation, and the preparing and / or eating meals.

Description

DEVELOPMENT IN DEVELOPMENT
OF A CRAFT FOR HOUSEHOLD USE
The present invention relates to a boat, of the sail or motor type, provided with all the means, equipment and fittings, allowing its use as a floating dwelling.

The invention relates more particularly to improvements to this type of boat, with a view to providing boaters with optimal use and use of space on a boat where each square meter counts.

The design of such boats is difficult because the boat must also contain all the technical means allowing its navigation and its propulsion, in addition to the reserves, whether regulatory or pleasure. In addition, pleasure boat users demand that their boat meet the comfort conditions that can be found in a terrestrial dwelling. However, the boat is subject to the natural constraints of navigation and it must therefore be self-sufficient in all respects, whether in terms of pleasure, propulsion, navigation or security.

 There are many types of such craft, called pleasure craft, for residential use and architects and designers must reconcile these contradictory criteria.

However, to date, pleasure craft, whatever their type, layout and efforts, have substantially the same layout structure. We find on the one hand the rear deck, arranged outside, and sometimes partially covered, where the bar is located, and on the other hand the passenger living space intended for the dwelling itself, and provided with means of cooking, taking meals, sleeping and sanitary facilities.

These two spaces have very different functions, since the rear deck is intended for piloting almost exclusively, or for leaving the boat from the rear, and the interior space arranged under the bridge, is intended exclusively for habitation in the sense proper to the term. Under the bridge there is also all the means specific to navigation and propulsion, and which decreases the space reserved for accommodation.

In known manner, the communication between the two spaces (rear deck open to the outside and interior living space) is achieved by an opening made in a substantially vertical partition and separating the rear deck open to the outside and the space interior arranged under the bridge, and by the use of a staircase with a few steps.

The opening is generally low and forces passengers to bend their heads and often their backs to be able to enter or exit the rear space. Going up or down a few steps in this position is awkward.

In addition, pleasure craft of this type are intended by definition for the comfort and pleasure of passengers, who use these boats in climatic conditions favoring life outside.

However, the known arrangement as described above leaves little choice for passengers who must be satisfied, for their leisure time, with the relatively narrow outside deck, which is moreover congested with the bar, and who must carry out relatively frequent comings and goings between the exterior deck and the interior living space, through this awkward opening.

The present invention aims to remedy this situation and provides a pleasure craft, sail or motor, which allows boaters to fully enjoy the space offered by the entire boat, balancing the concern of outdoor life, when weather conditions allow, and comfort, and without sacrificing security.

To this end, according to the invention, the pleasure craft, sail or motor, provided with means and equipment intended to constitute a floating dwelling, is characterized in that it is arranged so that the space passenger compartment is separated into two parts, namely a first part comprising the sleeping means and sanitary facilities, and arranged under the deck, and a second part located on the deck, substantially towards the rear, open to the outside , and comprising facilities suitable for relaxation, and the preparation and / or taking of meals.

In a schematic way, the outside space is rather intended to be used during the day for the leisures and the meals, and the interior space, under the bridge, for the night or the sanitary interludes.

In order to allow optimal and pleasant use of the outdoor living space on the deck, the latter is covered.

According to a particularly advantageous embodiment, the deck cover includes three successive elements, from front to rear, namely a windshield, an intermediate cover element, and a rear cover element having a general shape. visor cap.

Preferably, the windshield and the visor are fixed and made of a rigid material, while the intermediate cover element is foldable, and consists for example of a hood.

Advantageously, the rear visor element comprises a substantially flat, horizontal part extended on the sides towards the rear by side panels allowing its fixing to the bridge.

More particularly, the flat and horizontal part of the visor is extended on its sides by lateral flaps.

In order to improve the comfort of the relaxation living space, the rear visor element comprises at least one removable side panel between the bridge and the upper planar element of the visor, so as to create a closed space, possibly completed by a removable vertical rear closure panel.

The invention will be clearly understood in the light of the following description relating to an illustrative but nonlimiting example of the invention, with reference to the appended drawings in which: FIG. 1 is a side view and in partial section of a boat
according to the invention,. Figure 2 is a top view, the bridge being removed for spokes
sounds of clarity, from the boat in Figure 1. Figure 3 is a front perspective view of a boat to
sails of the invention; FIG. 4 is a perspective view towards the front, showing the space
relaxation located on the deck; . Figure 5 is a rear perspective view of a lifeboat
the invention; FIG. 6 is a side view of another example of a lifeboat
the invention; Ia 7 is a view of the boat of Figure 6, in another
embodiment of the cover of the relaxation area; Figure 8 is a schematic side view of another form of real
covering of the relaxation area.

Referring to Figures 1 and 2, there is shown a boat 1 provided, in known manner, with a hull 2, a deck 3, a keel 4, a rudder 5 capable of being actuated by a helm 6 itself subjected to the commands of a pilot 7, the ship being propelled by means of an engine 8. It is understood that the invention also applies to sailing pleasure boats. Only the main elements are shown in the figures, for reasons of clarity, it being understood that the boat of the invention includes all the means necessary for its propulsion and navigation.

The invention also includes means making it suitable for the home, and to constitute a floating home.

In Figure 2, there is shown sleeping means 9, sanitary facilities 10, and all of the means and arrangements specific to floating dwellings.

Referring again to FIG. 1, the deck 3 comprises a front deck 3A located on the top of the boat at the level of the upper part of the hull, and a rear deck 3B located at the lower level, but above the waterline.

The boat is divided into two parts, or two spaces, namely a so-called living space, referenced 12 and located at the front of the boat under deck 3A, and a relaxation and meal space, referenced 13, located towards aft and on deck 3B.

The living space 12 is an interior and closed space, since it is located under the bridge, while the relaxation and dining space 13 is open to the outside. The latter constitutes a sort of bridge square.

The two spaces communicate via a passage provided with a door (not shown), the passage being provided with a staircase 14.

A yachtsman has been shown in Figure 1 climbing this staircase. Note that a regulatory walk can be planned to prevent the invasion of the interior space 12.

The interior space 12 before the dwelling includes all of the sleeping means and sanitary facilities necessary for the life of boaters, especially at night or during ablutions. The rear space 13 for relaxation, leisure and meals, meanwhile, has two contiguous subparts, namely a part located towards the front and referenced 15, and a subpart referenced 16 for relaxation and leisure. The front sub-part 15 of the relaxation and leisure space 13 comprises the means necessary for the preparation of meals or drinks, known in themselves and some of which are shown schematically. The relaxation and leisure sub-part 16 (behind the sub-part 15) of the rear space 13 comprises means suitable for promoting relaxation and / or taking meals, namely lateral seats or berths. 17 and 18, and tables 19 and 20, each set of seats I berths / tables being situated on either side of a central passage 21 leading to the communication passage between the rear relaxation space 13 and the space front interior 12 for habitation.

The front sub-part 15 intended for the preparation of meals, above the bridge 3B, has a central zone 22 in alignment with the central passage 21 (of the sub-part 16) and thus access the dwellings (space interior 12) and also the preparation of meals or any other similar activity.

The rear space 13, facing outwards, intended for relaxation and meals, is covered by covering means 23, shown in FIGS. 1 and 3.

The covering means 23 of the rear deck 3B, and covering the relaxation and dining space 13, comprises three parts, namely, from the front to the rear, a windshield 24, an intermediate covering element 25, and a third rear cover element 26 in the form of a cap visor or cap.

The windshield 24 at the front and the cap or visor 26 are made of rigid and fixed material, while the intermediate element 25 is preferably produced in the form of a folding hood.

The cap or visor 26 comprises a horizontal plane panel 27, extended on the rear part by two side panels 28 and 29 allowing its attachment to the boat.

Figure 5 is a rear perspective view of an example of a boat showing, in particular, the rear relaxation and meal space 13, open to the outside.

FIG. 4 shows a schematic perspective view showing most of the rear space 13 for relaxation and meals. The cover 23 (windshield 24, intermediate hood 25 and cap 26) has been shown in transparency for the purposes of understanding the figure.

The front sub-portion 15 and intended for meals comprises a set of furniture and means suitable for the preparation of meals or drinks, according to a sort of ring with rectangular section, interrupted in two places, namely on the one hand towards the front to constitute the communication opening towards and from the interior space 12 intended for the dwelling (under the bridge 3A), and on the other hand for the central passage 21 of the passengers towards and from the rear. Also, the furniture of the rear part 16 relaxation and leisure is shaped (in particular the berths and the tables), so as to create a rectangular space (seen from above) only interrupted in front by the central passage allowing access to the under -part 15 for the kitchen, and towards the rear by a notch allowing access to or from the skirt 30.

Figure 6 shows, from the side, a boat similar to that of Figure 1, but under sail, and on which we find (partially shown) the usual rigging elements.

In Figure 7, there is shown the boat of Figure 6, for which the cover 23 of the rear deck 3B (and thus covering the leisure and meal space 13), arranged differently, in that the hood intermediate 25, between the windshield 24 and the cap 26, is folded so as to open outwards and upwards, the relaxation space 13, in particular above the sub-part 15 intended for the preparation meals. Thus, the rear space 13 for relaxation and meals is widely open to the outside. The release of the hood 25 allows in particular to evacuate kitchen odors. In addition, this opening (FIG. 7) makes it possible to create an air draft during navigation or even at anchor, and thus to send a refreshing breeze towards the rear relaxation sub-part 16 where the seats are located. and berths 17 and 18, as well as tables 19 and 20, for the greatest comfort of the users.

In order to improve the comfort of boaters, the invention provides, as shown in FIG. 8, for closing laterally, in a removable manner,
The rear relaxation space 13, and more particularly the rear subpart 16 corresponding to the seats, berths and tables, by one or more side panels, referenced 32, 33 and 34, for the three panels on the right side which alone can be shown in Figure 8 (being a side view).

A rigid, flexible or retractable panel can be arranged (not shown) transversely to completely close the space 13 by placing said panel at the rear of the boat, the edge of said panel being fixed on the rear edge of the cap 26 and on the upper edge of the deck 3A, in particular at the level of the seats provided at this location.

The lateral closure (FIG. 8) can also be carried out by a flexible panel capable of being rolled up, and preferably made of transparent material.
