Default Height of a big V on a trailer

How tall is a 36-43' stand up style V hull on a trailer? Something like a Cig, Nortech, Apache, etc.

Trying to figure out if it would fit through the garage door. Around 9' clearance.

Thanks.

It would be close, but I don't think my 382 would fit under a 9ft door.

I did 12X12's to be sure I wouldn't have any issues.

I think mine sits around 9', but my deck is raised higher than the boats you list. I'm closer to a BT in height.

Almost all will fit through a 10' tall door. Aim for a 10' door if you can. A few will fit though a 9' door on cradling "low slung" trailers like Myco, Manning, and others. But a typical aluminum bolt together bunk trailer often with vertical 3x10 or 4x10 main bunks will raise the boat a few inches vs. aforementioned.

That's because of your big affeminent windshield.

I just measured - my Cafe is almost 8 feet exactly.

My 36' apache has the flip up windscreens rather than the racing fairing and it is on a lower slung Eagle trailer and Mine is 8' 9" on the trailer when hooked to the tow vehicle. I am building a pole barn for mine and I went with 12' doors just incase but as sydwayz said unless it is a black thunder it should fit through a 10' door.

Thanks all. The door and garage exists already, it might be easier to build an entirely new garage in the future rather than try to put an addition on to the existing building.
