Haven't measured yet, but the one time I've seen our Defever 44 hauled, it appeared to have about 1.5 to 2 feet between the bottom of the keel and fin tips.
As for space, I don't know if Art designed his engine rooms for active fin stabilizers or not, but god bless him for building in enough room for them . . . plus enough left over for a small bowling alley.
