Mast height is 11m above deck (Z-Spars).  Add 2m to waterline.
If you go to teh tech drawings, 36ft 6 inches to coach roof (Jeremy drawing)
Plus 6ft 1" to waterline.
So drawings say 42ft 7inches plus aerials etc, less stores, duty free, useful stuff and general weight to bring her down again...

Thanks Richard, that's useful.  I intend cruising in Norway and Sweden, lots of bridges and overhead power cables.
