In the main cabin there is a proper galley, with a sink, a stove and a bar fridge tucked away under the stern deck. Now the 2.5m beam allows for passage in protected conditions and allows for stress free trailering. Another less refined craft, but something that can be made very quickly, in fact it is just a barge, are the triloboats as seen HERE.
Now when thought is given to the above design, it can be seen that constricting the width to 8.5ft for the most arbitary reasons is pretty silly. If the idea is to make the craft more 'liveaboard houseboat' like and less a true sailing craft, then the following changes could be made.
The broad rear and bow transoms would not produce a craft well suited for long ocean passages, however they give a lot of interior space for a 26ft craft. This Garvey Houseboat I found when I was looking at the absolute best website devoted to houseboats that I know. Below looks like a modified fishing boat that has been converted to a pleasure cruiser, looks extremely sound. This gives the craft the means to survive rougher conditions that some craft, but it is not ocean capable. He has been able to use the greater beam to push the galley up forward and free up the aft part of the interior into one reasonably large open space. It could prove to be an excellent small liveaboard craft, without the expensive refinement of a sailing yacht or a classy motor yacht. Overall dimensions come out roughly similar, with the exception that the Dutch Barges tend to be longer. Not as good a cruising boat as a pure motor boat, but a simple easy to make houseboat, with ability to handle conditions a bit rougher than a typical houseboat. That website is SHANTYBOAT LIVING It is truly excellent and I cant recall exactly where on that site I saw this boat, but it is there.
Space has been provided for the neccessities, such as a sealed off bedroom with a double berth, with space for clothes and accessories, and space to stand up and get dressed in privacy if need be.

The bow is of the scow type so as to reduce lenght overall, thus reducing marina fees and making road transport easier.
However it should be able to travel from one protected area to another within a given weather window. If trailering beam were not an issue, the natural beam of this craft would I think be a fraction greater, perhaps 9.5ft allowing for greater space and stability. After the above sketches were drawn, I discovered the following craft, the Tad Roberts 26ft Sailing Scow. It is unsure from the picture if there has been space allocated for a shower, it could possibly be located near the head. The top structure could well be built lighter as it would not need to withstand the forces of rigging. Note that under the floor there is space for gravel ballast, fresh water tanks and waste water tanks. Width is kept at the legal maximum of 2.5m to assist in road transport without complication. Effort has been made to reduce windage by means of sloping the topsides and curving the cabin sides, cabin top junction.
Stability is something that feels right in terms of gut feeling, but should perhaps benefit from proper metacenter calculations. It could be argued that travel in exposed areas would be a relatively rare occurence, and preparation of a few hours work to achieve this could be justifed given the extra freedom of movement that such a change could bring. It would only be suitable for protected areas but given that proviso it seems a very nice craft indeed. His displacement of approx 5 tonnes sits well with my guestimate of 4 tonnes, for a craft that is a fraction shorter and a lot narrower. We can add a chine to the hullshape, the chine not being needed to dig into the water to create lateral resistance when heeling. Also note the slot in the roof for ventilation (I guess fresh air is nice when its too hot).

What I liked was how they went through the figures, and on how a simple yet spacious houseboat can be built for much less cost than a house (20k in 1989 dollars) and registration and mooring fees can be amazingly affordable. The solution I see is removable lightweight sponsons that increase beam without unduly raising the center of gravity.
The scow layout reduces overall length for a given size, and thus reducing any marina fees which are based on length. Note that the extra space in the stern allows for an engine to be located (it has to go somewhere). The concept is that the craft would usually remain in the one place, but it has enough inherent seaworthiness to handle short coastal passages. The Joli boat is lighter and simpler, but would be restriced to the areas it could traverse due to its flat bottom and low freeboard at the bow. Such sponsons, similar to the conformal fuel tanks on some fighter jets would fit flush with the hull and have tapered ends so as to be less affected by waves. We can raise the roofline a few inches to increase comfort, and without having to worry about the overturning forces of a large sail rig. The blunt bow would be no fun going into a steep chop of moderate size, however the hullshape would comfortably cope with coastal passages, allowing for relocation of home base, when the time comes. Note that to get to the bow you have to walk above the roof, so a narrow walkway between front deck and aft deck via cabin top would be needed.
An inbuilt diesel of 25hp woul be the main driver with a small auxillary outboard of 15hp in case of emergencies.
