Anyone have a list W/ 6'5"+ Headroom?? AKA..Tired of Kneeling at the Galley Stove

Does anyone have recomendations???? I am 6'5"+ tall....I am looking for a boat that is good in light air for coastwise cruising. I supose $75,000 is the limit for now. I would prefer a smaller boat to a larger one. I can go on with specifics.... like I like lots of wood inside with very little on the outside, I like fin keel spade rudder boats but hate IOR designs. I think an Ericson 41 is a very nice boat on the eyes. I think a Kettenburg PCC is very beautiful, if the boat were lovely and had standing headroom in the galley I would take on a full wood boat. I would go to the opposite end of the spectrum and take a flat out racer like a Davidson 44 which does have the headroom in at least on of them, I value a boat that is built to be sailed first and lived on second... I only need to be able to stand at the galley sink and the stove.... I sit most everywhere else....
If anyone has a list of boats with exceptional Headroom, please forward it me
Thanks so much....

and headroom does matter, after several solo 1,800+ mile passages and lots of long distance cruising,,, I am tired of kneeling at the galley sink

Aloha Flit,
Welcome aboard! There are a few out there with enough hedroom for you in 35/36 foot LOD. Columbia comes to mind but I'm certain there are others. When sailing I sometimes with I were shorter at only 6'1". It would be lot less painful.
Kind regards,
