We are new members here and we want the CD28. I need some interior info if possible. I'm 6'4", 200 lbs and I would like to hear from an owner as to whether I will fit in 1/2 of the V berth or will I have to sleep in the saloon? We were aboard a 28 but there was stuff stored in the V berth so we did not get to try it on for size. Thanks, Bob

I am 6' 1/2", 160 lbs. and fit in the V-berth fine. 6'4", might be a bit tight.

I'm 6'3", and was 260lbs or more for much of the history of my CD28...which is almost 22 years now (but 218lbs now and dropping).

I fit without trouble in half the vberth, and feel there is still a little more length...but you will have to try it somewhere yourself to be sure.

The salon berth is tighter for me, still fit but a little less length. I rarely give up the "owners cabin" though.

Thank you all for your help. Having been liveaboards for 10 yrs on a bigger boat with lots of room, the space issue is our biggest concern. Having a land base will solve most of it but we want to cruise for months at a time.
