Headroom

I''d like to hear experienced liveaboard and/or cruising sailors'' opinion about interior headroom. The latest boat I looked at doesn''t have headroom for me in the head/shower, the master stateroom (forward), and the passageway leading to them both. I would have to duck quite a bit to make it through the passageway, and bend my neck in the head and stateroom while standing. Most other spaces (salon, galley, a small area forward of the aft quarterberth stateroom) have sufficient headroom. The navigation station on the port side is under the cockpit so it doesn''t have sufficient headroom either, but I figure that''s OK because I would probably be seated when at the navigation station.

Does this situation sound untenable for living aboard, and cruising? or am I worrying about something that doesn''t make a real difference over time?
