Headroom & accommodation

Main Saloon – Generally, 5’4″ to 5’6″ ( 1.62m) but 6’2″ (1.88m), full standing headroom only at the aft end of the saloon, by the companionway steps. This is a Victorian Yawl, after all.
If you think this is low, consider that her deck was raised by 8″ (0.20m) in her major rebuild. The Victorians were purists for sea-keeping qualities, and didn’t build floating caravans, as a rule.
