Well, I just hope you're not too wedded to the notion that you definitely need something over 35' to "go cruising on"... Nice to have, perhaps, but such size is certainly not a requirement to really go places...

Lots of folks out there doing just fine on boats considerably smaller, or older... Here's but one example, Thies Matzen and Kiki Erickson on the legendary WANDERER III...
