I recently visited a Daphene (French design) Spanish Navy boat on display in Torriveija. The D/e boat was built in 1971 a bit smaller than a P and O boat. It had 10 internal tubes, 8 fwd and 2 in stern plus two under aft casing. No reloads were carried. The for-ends was the J.R's mess with bunks four high port and starboard. The after ends was the S/R's mess. They operated three watches and bunks for only 2 thirds of the crew were provided.

Further enquirers with the guide and a Tiff of my acquaint who visited many European navy boats indicate that two thirds bunks was the norm over the Channel and North Sea.

The boat is well worth a visit if you are in this area.

And here is the actual vessel... the future of our boats perhaps: micro-boats for micro-matelots?
