Re: Good Centre Cockpit with 6"5' Head Room

Hugh,

Just a thought here: If you have a center cockpit that means that your main cabin is going to be the aft cabin and the passage way to that cabin, in my experience as a short man, is going to be tight for you. I too like CC boats, but you might want to reconsider.

This is why my preference is the Endeavour 43, I'm sure there are others, not like the Gulfstar and many that have cramped access to the aft berth. Ours has 6' 10" throughout including the aft berth passageway that is nearly 4' wide. Many 43s have bunks here but ours has a workbench and with plenty of room for storage.

Re: Good Centre Cockpit with 6"5' Head Room

Hi:

I am 6'4" and started off with insisting on headroom too. Now I have ejected this spec as it just is not feasible when trying to jamb in all the other things I want. 6'2" is now my goal - opens up about 2 orders of magnitude more boat designs to possibly being the one.

If you are on the west coast, see if you can find a Spencer 1330 CC. Never been in one, and likely never will be, but on paper, this is my dream boat. Rumor has it I would fit.

Hugh;

I have a 41' Columbia which has 6'4" clearance in the saloon and also in the walkways to the aft cabin through the head and galley. Its not 6'5" but close.

Re: Good Centre Cockpit with 6"5' Head Room

I have a TOCK (Tartan Offshore Cruising Ketch)(S and S design). Tartan built about 30 of them in the 1970-80s. I'm not so tall, but there is a lot of headroom in the boat, it is center cockpit, and aft of the cockpit is a large main cabin under a flush deck. Its 41 feet LOA, and definantly not a racing boat!!!!
Thanks
ED

Re: Good Centre Cockpit with 6"5' Head Room

I'm 6'5" and didn't expect to find much on standing height. A few of the suggestions here are what I've been looking at if I go bigger in the future. I just recently got my first boat and it may not have a lot of head room down below but it's plenty for what I'm doing anyway.

Best of luck in your search.
