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
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...
