Asking about size is not the right question, especially when the question "size" refers to length. A mono-hull of 35' that displaces 2 tons is a very different boat than a mono-hull of 35' that displaces 10 tons. These boats will have very different handling characteristics and capabilities. Multi-hulls are no different. Chris White said he could design a boat giving the client any two of three qualities: speed, comfort, cost. Make a list of what you need and want your boat to do for you. Then prioritize it from most need/want down to might be nice. Look at boats and then revise your list again. If you are realistic about what you are going to do with your boat and what capabilities are most important to you, you will be able to find a boat to fulfill your needs.

I agree in deciding what you want to do with the boat before you buy. It is also good to decide how many people will stay and sleep over. also think about where you will sailing and how deep the water is...

Does Gas / lpg still have it's place when cruising nowadays? I see a number of yachts eg the montebello in Aus using diesel cooktops and BBQ nowadays.
