There are a few things that would be different, even if you built a "duplicate." For one, there would have to be an elevator!
However, there would be LOT to be said for keeping a new boat to the DQ's outer dimensions. The DQ can go many places the MQ and AQ can't even think about going.
There are probably a few layout arrangements that would be changed too--as much as we love our DQ, she does have a few "uncomfortable" lodgings!
As to the MQ's machinery, how about saving them to put in a somewhat smaller boat, built along the DQ's lines--but maybe a bit more Western boat style than the DQ, which is definitely a "California style" boat.
