WDS123 is on a distinguished road
For a live aboard - standing headroom is going to be very desirable. But note, in order to get 6'2" of honest clear headroom in a boat less than 40' many adjustments will have to be made all negatively effecting seaworthiness and sailing qualities.

Wide beam

Excessively High cabin top


All serve to raise the weight above the waterline, decreasing stiffness.
