Re: Is Bigger better?

Well, my boat has grown during build from 33' to 38' without an inch growth in living spaces so I'd say it depends...

Re: Is Bigger better?

A bigger boat stores more stuff. If you need to store more stuff, get the bigger boat.

Re: Is Bigger better?

Thanks for all the input. As always pro's and con's for both, as they are the same make and series I can weigh it all up on paper before out laying the $$$$'s

Like he said.

Seven years ago we began by looking at 38ft Catalinas and Hunters, put several offers in on 40-41 foot Catalinas and Hunters which were turned down or sold to other people, then ended up with a Hunter 450. It's all about keeping the wife happy and being comfortable. Get what fits best for your family and you'll end up using it more often.
