Mine is port-side mounted with port tiller lever and is not cramped. Rather my issue is that the standard tiller arm is not long enough and you have to stretch back over the aft locker to reach it from the side bench (while looking forward where you are going). To get over this I use a detachable extension and slip a metre or so length of plastic waste pipe over the tiller handle …..though this is not as rigid as it could be it works really well. You have to be quick and whip it off if doing any tight manoevering but the comfort is essential for any distance.
(To answer your question though obviously the tiller mounting on the starboard side of a port mounted engine would be even more of a stretch without an extension.)
