Installed ventilation fans to improve interior comfort. Had the same Caframo Bora fans in my 22 and they really were a game changer on hot days and also aided the Walllas move warm air in the winter.
Lastly the aft fan will aid anyone in the "head compartment", as that space is small and if you are washing up, or using the head, the added air flow will aid in comfort as well as moving moist air out of that space.

The ventilation fans are almost essential. We have two of the Bora, in the main cabin--directed either on the windshield or can be pointed to the main cabin. We had those in the V Berth area, but in the last two boats elected to go with the slightly more expensive Caframo Maestro, This has a variable speed fan, with a rheostat to control fan speed, and a rocker switch for selection of red night light or white reading light, all on a corded remote. We put the remote where it is both easy to access from the cabin or V berth when in the bunk.

We run the V Bunk fans almost every night, hot or cold. Also we have either an Endless Breeze (Dometic) which is 12 volts and placed on dowels over the fore deck hatch, or in the opening window--if not using an air conditioner, or heater. The other option we have is a Ryobi battery operated two speed fan, which at times can supplement the "Endless breeze" and avoid using the air conditioning.
