A cuddy is a small cabin in a boat. A cuddy boat is a boat with a small cabin with maybe a small head. It may have a small berth also. Normally the cuddy is not tall enough to stand in. Typical lengths of cuddy boats range from 18' to 28' ft. The term "Cuddy cabin", is still somewhat used (cuddy itself means cabin), and is a common term among small boaters.

A cuddy boat is popular with people who want a little shelter and storage space but do not want to upgrade to a full cabin boat.
