Pearson 26 OD
Headroom in the P26OD is more like 5'' 0". 5''8" is the headroom in the standard P26. The OD is not what you would call a stand-up cabin. But I think it is a great layout and if I were in the market for another P26 I would be looking for an OD (or weekender which is basically the same). The cockpit is a lot bigger and visibility is greatly improved. Real useable space below is still very good. The P26 is a very seaworthy boat and pretty good performer compared to it''s peers.

If you want headroom, inboard, seaworthy, 26 feet, look for something like a Cape Dory 25D.
