I did a pretty in-depth headroom study of a pilothouse V-40. We had one for sale
and a tall client say 6'5" client called. I told him, "well I will measure but the owner is known as Tall Tim. He is 6'7", so I think she does have 6'5" headroom." I was really suprised at the result.
In the main saloon
, headroom was 6′3″ in the center tapering to 6′0″ at the sides. Forward with the stepdown and sheer, headroom went up to 6′4″ in the master stateroom. I made sure to take conservative and accurate measurements. The shower
is always an important spot. I remember this tapering from 6'2" to 6'0".
I was disapointed at this result. I do not know if this helps as I noted this was one of the pilot V-40's not a standard version. I do not have records on a standard one. If you, mnrsail
, are set on high headroom which I would put at 6'3"+, I do not recommend the V-40, and a pilot version will not help either. You will always wish for more. But if all you need is your modest 6'2" clearance and maybe can accept low spots of 6'0", I agree with newt a
V-40 is worth a try.
