It might save them a trip to see a boat they won't be happy with. We had several 410s on our short list while looking and we chartered one for two weeks sailing in Greece, so it was not just a walk-through either. Oliver
Oliver,
I was merely giving MY opinion as a person who stands 2 meters tall, and I was directing it to "Therapy", not you.
Ok. So maybe I never was on a 410? But I've been aboard a 440 and a 380 and a 470. Nothing more than a walk through, mind you, but I seem to recall them having more than ample headroom for my lanky ass. My memory is questionable however.
On my boat, I am more than happy with being able to stand at the galley down in the hull. My hair grazes the ceiling and I don't jump for joy down there, but it is ample, and I am psyched. I spend 99% of my time up on deck, where in the main salon (glorified marine dodger), there is only 5'6" of headroom, but at night it is a king sized bed up high with views, ventilation, and quick access to all the boat controls. Not everyone's cup of tea, but it works for me!
Sorry if my earlier statement was misleading.
If I was looking to live aboard, as long as I could stand at the galley and almost stand everywhere else, (and it was a multihull), I'd be fine with that.
The MaineCat 41 would be top on my list though with a minimum of 6'9" headroom throughout.
And yes, I was aboard the MaineCat for a whole week...
It's all a series of compromises...
Cheers,
Big B

Re: Headroom

I am 6'3" and have lots of headroom to spare in our Voyage catamaran.

Was that a nice way to greet a new member? Perhaps it would be in order to send her a PM apologizing and give her a warm welcome.

I didn't think it was a full moon out right now.

Re: Headroom

I'm 199cm (6'6") and in my research, within its price bracket, I think the Lagoon 380 offers the best headroom for the dollar.

A bit more expensive, the Lagoon 400 is king of headroom. The L400 has even more headroom than the L420, L440, and L450.
