With a wife and 2 boys, any cat under 40' or so is going to get a little cramped. Ideally I think something in the 45' range would be the best combo of ease of sail and room for family
and friends. My issue is that when you get in this size you see mainly the condo cat type with marble counters and nice wood flooring
. I tend to like my boats a little more function over form. I like white gel coat finish instead of wood paneling on the walls, stuff like that. I guess I prefer a racer
with the room of a cruising cat. Does anyone make such an animal?
