The Catalina 35 actually has 6'7" headroom I think. Huge for it's size.

Took a look at a Bristol 45.5 with a center cockpit yesterday. It's got good room, I can't wander through it without ducking, but it's tall enough that it would be comfortable.

Denr is an unknown quantity at this point
All of the Catalinas have been designed specifically for NBA players, unfortunately they forgot hand holds so the players will bounce around the cabin like ping pong balls....

Re: Boats with cabin space for tall people

i'm 6'4'' and went to see a colvic sailor 26 today.In Dunfermline very disappointed with the 6'2'' liong.2.5feet narrow double bed [ 6'9'' diagonaly]. it had been sitting for 2 year in a welders yard and had developed an inch of rain water under the floor, the bloke said " it's cause the hatch on the cockpit floor's lacking a seal, all boats have a bit of water under the floor.''?
Is it just me? or do we british make very badly designed boats.
The bloke said '' I cant fit past the hatch leading to the V berth as it's so narrow''
He wasn't that fat !

The designers of the the colvic sailor should have made the cockpit six '' smaller and added that to the interior.

Ted Hood, being a tall guy, tended to design boats with lots of head room.

Most of the Cascade 42 sloops have about 7' of headroom.

Pacific Seacraft 34and. 37 have 6/4 headroom. Not sure of sleeping spots but you could google the manufacture site. The cockpit is fairly long also.

Re: Boats with cabin space for tall people

I am not really sure about berth size but here is a few I have found information on. I am 6'2" and dont want to have to crouch while cooking so I am looking for something with a little headroom too.
my findings are all from internet searches so might be the model always has this headroom or there is one for sale that has it im not deep enough in my research to know yet
I know you said your looking at 40-45 ive been looking at a touch shorter say 30-35 although several 37's made the list too

6'4"
Baba 30
Fuji 35
Niagara 35
Pearson Vanguard 33(32)
Tayana 37(top of my list)
Vancouver 27/28
Columbia 36

6'5"
Grampion 34
Mariner 31/32
Morgan out island 33
Mirah 31 (Pacific seacraft)

Downeaster 32 at 6'6"
CSY 33 at 6'7"

hope this helps with your search gives you some more to look at.
