Dutch term or phrase: achterpiek
Context:

I am currently translating a document for a shipbuilding company, and cannot find the correct translation for "achterpiek" in my Van Dale/Kluwer.

The sentence is as follows:

De salon, eigenaarshut met badkamer, het stuurhuis en de gastenhut met badkamer in de achterpiek zijn gelijk gebleven, evenals de breedte van het schip

All suggestions welcome - KudoZ point will be awarded asap.

Thanks,

Pikey
