Re: Cape Dory 27

This says it has "standing head room."

CDSOA, Inc. -- CD27

My Bristol 27 is advertised as having 5"10" of head room, and I am 6' and can stand in bare feet from the hatch way almost to the mast.

Maybe I have strunk at bit though since I'm mid 60's!

This is a great place to ask specific questions concerning Cape Dory sailboats.

I'm 6' and I have to duck slightly in the cabin of my CD27, but if I stand near the companion way under the hatch cover I can stand straight up.

Re: Cape Dory 27

On my CD28 there is standing headroom everywhere, I'm 5'11" , I do have to duck under a beam going into the head. I know it's not the 27, but the 28s are pretty cheap from time to time, and they are nice boats that can circle the world.

Re: Cape Dory 27

I should add that when I have stood in my boat (I've only had it a couple months), it's with shoes on and the sole has a rug, so I may not have to duck while barefoot and/or without that rug.
