Pardon my language...but I would have a full blown stiffy if I could just sit down next to my engines and wrench away

Just be careful with the amount of torque you employ

Mee too. It would give a whole new meaning to a "stand up" engine room.

I am 6'2" and bulky. A stand up, walk around engine room without having to open an overhead hatch is a big priority for me. The Grand Banks 49 Classic and 49 Motoryachts we chartered fit the bill for me just fine.

Best of all in my opinion is the split engine rooms on the older Hatteras motor yachts starting with the 53.Two real doors on each side to the front and rear of each engine, great walkway on the front and outside of the engines (even better on my 18'2# 56) and ton's of headroom.. maybe 6'8" or more. If for some reason you need to get better access to the inboard side of engine, removable panels are there. Between the engine spaces is the companion way to the aft stateroom from the galley. Engine room checks while underway are easy and fast.

All modern Hatteri have big high single ERs. You know you've got a roomy Er when you start thinking about how you could mount a basketball hoop in there.

On our Selene the engine room isn't standup for me but it almost is for my wife. It's tall enough to make walking around hunched a bit fine, but I can sit all around the engine on both sides to work on it. Don't need the extra headroom.

I hate hunching. For one thing, that means a klutz like me is going to be banging my head all the time; things are already rattling enough in there.

The 47' Nordhavn has a stand up engine room and a full height door for entry. There is full access to all sides of the engine as well.

Here's what mine looks like:

Just curious...speaking of sub-fifty footers...at what point does having a stand up engine room demand raising the saloon and pilothouse so high that stability is compromised, windage is increased, and stabilizing fins are pretty much required?

On the Nordhavn 47, the stand up engine room was accomplished by adding a small bulge in the hull where the engine sits. They are referred to as "maintenance strakes" and have the additional benefit of lowering the engine in the hull to the point the main shaft is pretty much horizontal.

I guess you could get there, but I think it would take a naval architect to address questions about compromised stability.

My thought is that anything above the waterline increases windage. With the exception of Northern Marine's Baden, I have not heard of any of these boats with standup (trying to get Healhustler's unwelcome analogy out of my mind here) engine rooms that actually have stability problems. We have active fin stabilizers on our boat, but I don't think any of the unstabilized Defevers are known to be unstable.

Greetings,
As I recall, the 50' Marine Traders also had 2 ER's with a hallway between and removable panels in the hall for side engine access. Kinda small but stand up none the less.

Here's the ER of the late model 36 Selene, now called the 38. Pretty darned good access for a sub 40 boat. Brochure says 5'9".
