Re: New family, new-to-us boat?

Get the largest boat you can afford. A 36' has considerably more space than a similar 32' because every added foot is amidships; at the widest point of the ship. The additional room will be luxury. Plan on a few years rebuilding the ship and getting familiar with navigation and weather.
In the meantime, enjoy the Ranger 23.

Re: New family, new-to-us boat?

Just to throw a wrench into the mix, what about a 36’-40’cat? Faster, more stable for kids and cruising, more room. Vs the like size of a mono hull
