Oh yeah....I'm 6'3, 250#....I actually fit quite well up in the V berth. With the top of my head just short of touching the bulkhead, my feet do not touch the bow access partition unless I point my toes. It's actually quite comfortable. In this Texas summer heat/humidity, it's too stifling up there, even with a fan and the hatch open, so I sleep back in the quarter berth....and there's plenty of room back there. However, in the cooler months and over the winter, the V berth is gonna be my place to sleep. Both have overhead cabin lights, new LED ones, so reading, watching a movie on my laptop, or gaming on my Nintendo DSiXL are a perfect end to a day of sailing.
