Considering 36 Tri Cabin

Post by Nickburf » Tue Aug 27, 2019 8:46 am

Hey there, I’m considering one of these and I’m a y’all gu so I’m wondering about headroom in the salon and aft cabin (I won’t spend much time in the forward cabin so I’ll stoop if necessary there)

Thanks in advance

I'm 6' 3" and have been on a friend's tri cabin. I don't remember ducking in the salon or aft cabin, but its been a few months and I wasn't focusing on the headroom. Hopefully one of the folks who actually owns one will answer with a more accurate response.

There is about 6' 5" of headroom in the center of the salon on our F-36 convertible and I don't have to duck in the lower passageway or v-berth.

In our 1985 Tri Cabin in the forward v-berth standing between the two berths the headroom is 6’5”. In the center of the saloon it is 6’3” and in the aft captain’s berth at the foot of the bed it is 6’3”.
