Headroom for 1m93 (6'4") crew

We are in the market for a family cruising cat. 3 of the 4 of us are over 6'2 and so headroom is a big issue (as is bed length).
Can anyone advise if FP athena 38 and other similar boats have enough headroom. A Catana 471 with galley up and aft is just OK, but is over budget.

Re: Headroom for 1m93 (6'4") crew

My Privilege 39 is about an inch too short in the salon, but down in the hulls there is no problem with headroom.

Salon headroom never bothered me that much because most of the time I am seated.

If money is an issue, I would not have a problem with reduced headroom in the bridge deck/salon area.

Re: Headroom for 1m93 (6'4") crew

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, michaux.

The Athena's saloon, accessed through a 5- by 2-foot sliding cockpit door, is roughly 13 feet wide with an average 6-foot-plus headroom.
Each master cabin has 6-foot, 4-inch headroom.
