While very famous, this is a wood boat that's 43 years old and has been under water multiple times and it's currently set up as three cabins - maybe not the best choice for somebody with four kids. Currently listed at $350,00 (which I'm sure is negotiable) it's probably a little too feral for the OP. While hiring a captain to teach them sailing and about the boat is a good idea, it shouldn't take more than three months of full time sailing to acquire the proper skills.
