Best,

I am also 6'5" and am searching for a 32-37' cat with enough head room.

Did you find many with 6'6" of head room? Think I could live with that.

delan I have a schucker 437, center cockpit cutter, 6'6 headroom, 14 foot beam, all lines lead aft for single handing, stainless centerboard for shallow cruising, definitely built for comfort not speed, motors at 6k, flat out sailing 7.5, doesn't heel much, pretty much sounds like what you're looking for.

tv195 Hey, I am 6'5" and happy with my Columbia 34 MKII which has 7 feet headroom in the main cabin!

adamsaquatics Guys below 6'3" are lil fellas. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Like someone else said. You need a comfy bed or that trip is gonna be a looong one.

WanderingStar Yeah well, all that gets harder as you age.

wescarroll My 6' 4" son has never complained about the headroom in my Oday 30, the 1980 to 1984 had a very high build quality and an advertised 6'3" headroom I think.

puddinlegs Almost anything designed by Bob Perry will have good standing headroom and long bunks. He's a tall guy himself, so....

mitiempo I'm lucky that way, being only 5'7".

DanielBoon Hahaha, my posture is just fine, I walk "extra" tall when I'm outdoors. Yes, there is a need to stoop a bit when I'm onboard but hey, that's boats for ya and until I can afford a bigger, loftier boat I'm happy to compromise.
