Help Needed : Space Inside the Hulls ...

As I am 6`7 (2,00m) high, I want a fitting bed and bathroom, but canīt find this kind of measutres in the catalogues. My Lagoon 410 has not enough space inside the hulls like some of the new modells - so I will have to buy another one for my long-trip. My question:

Which Catamarans between 40 and 50 feet have an inside hight in the hulls and also in the saloon of at least 2,00m?

Mainecat 41, I think...also a Lagoon 440 has to be close.
I'm 6ft 6" and have the same issues.....like airline seats, European cars and most off-the self jackets....all seem to be made for children!!! lol

Hmmm I knew an Austrian Engineer called Joseph, in Brisbane in the early 90's....he was a very tall fellow too.

2m is a most inconvenient height for most activities on boats, though your horizon is wider.

My condolences on your condition..

When young and stupid I always wanted to be BIG and TALL.

Now at 5'7' 141 lbs and 65 yo I' wouldn't want to be 6'7" for all the tea in China

Depends on the budget, I know the Catana 47 would give you the head room, also look at the new He'lia 44 from FP.

We built an 1160 with a bit more saloon headroom for a guy. So maybe you can check if a boat you like could be modified to suit?

I am going to print T-Shirts that say Retard Magnet. And I'm always going to wear one around CaptainKJ.
Look it's working already.
