I don't know where you are going to put them all! but when I had my '24 I was told by QLD coastguard that it was 11!!!
Cheers Martyn

A common legal formula is:
Number of people = vessel length (ft.) x vessel width (ft.) 15
Which comes out to 11.2. Sounds like where QLD coastguard got its number (although I'm sure the formula is slightly modified for metric)
Here is anther interesting article:
