blt2ski will become famous soon enough
I have a friend whom is 5'23" and sails an older Peterson Island 41, seems to work ok for him. Spouse is just over 6' herself.

With that, as mentioned, some of the newer Jeanneau's especially the DS versions have plenty of headroom, now, if they have enough for you! that is another story.

Another couple I know, he is about 6'3to5" they have a Catalina 420, I believe he has headroom through out, I should be seeing him in a bit and over the weekend at Seattle's opening day fun, so will ask. Right now we are tied together at another YC.

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
