A Douglas 32 was way under for me, but might work in a squeak for you.

Some of the Grampians are tall I have read, but likely make other sacrifices.

Oh a broker was going to show me a Ticon 30, but it wasn't available that day.

I was on a Corbin 39 that was probably 6"2" to 6"3". These are mostly custom interiors so one likely would need to step onto every candidate to know for sure.

The best boat I have been on for me in the lower 30s is likely the Aloha 34, but I am concentrating my search on the 40 to 45 foot range now.

Sounds like you have about 2 more inches of trouble finding standing headroom than I do! Thanks for the list. I have the Albergs on my short list. I'm looking mainly in the 32' to 37' range and May go to 40' or 41' for the right boat but I want to keep it smaller and more manageable. I don't believe I've checked into the Aloha's. Who makes the CS 36? It doesn't sound familiar.

I've done enough stooping over at work that I'm not anxious to make that a part of my cruising regimen.
