We have now owned our J 29 for 4 years and LOVE this boat. We cruise it most of the time and race it once in a while. We have the full cruiser interior meanin 6 berths. We go on a 2 week vaction every year on Lake Erie and have a great time. Down below is huge just no stand up head room. Im 6 foot and have no trouble the V berth is huge and very comfortable for sleeping. What the boat lacks in down below is made up in sailing the boat. On most every occasion we can pick a boat out on the horizon and reel them in pass them and then they are just a dot on the horizon again. Most all the time the boat we pass is a 30-40 foot cruising boat like a Hunter, Catalina or a Beneteau. As we get close we are able to see the skipper looking at his sail trim and wondering why we are rolling past them. Joke on the J 29 is that as we sail past then are down below pulling the Lasagana out of the oven and putting in the Choclate Chip cookies while they are mixing Margareta's in the blender. If your worried about the lake of interior head room don't the boat is a pure Joy to sail and that has become a problem for us because nothing measures up for us now. We are spoiled by this boat and and how fast she is and how well she sail's. We got caught in a storm with 50 knot winds and just the main up. Had 10-12 foot lake Erie Waves and after the intinal blast and all settled in we were doing up to 15 knots for hours. Not hitting 15 then back to 7 but climbing to 15 knots and then slowly back to 8. After a few hours it was a blast we never felt in danger boat was just perfect. If you want to sail fast all the time and have a boat that will out sail all crusing boats up to 40 feet and can get past the no head room part the J 29 is a wonderful boat.
