No sure if you already are living aboard
or are searching.
I am pretty new at this live aboard game
and this is our first boat. At 6'5", I was initially obsessed with buying
a boat with full headroom. When we were looking, it was hard to get anything under 40' to achieve that and boats that size were beyond or would stretch our budget
to buy and then more importantly maintain.
I did some reading on this forum and elsewhere and what we ended up with was a 36' Southcoast. But that is not the point.
I don't have full headroom, probably 6"4 at best, but to be honest, this is not really a problem. Most of the time when down below I am sitting. If we are underway I am not usually down below but if I am, I am not standing bolt upright either so that helps. Sure I bump from time to time but that gets less the more attuned I become to the boat.
I suppose what I am saying is that for me now, there are more important factors than just headrom and that was the advice I gleaned from my research
. Headroom is a factor sure, but shouldn't in my opinion be the factor in a purchase
Just my 2c worth.
