Re: Help me find my next boat 24-29 foot

Have fun. If I were in town I'd offer to take you out on my boat, but I'm currently cruising around BC.

I liked the C25 a lot. I think it's too small for extended cruising with a couple (we're doing about 7 or 8 weeks of cruising this summer) due to not enough storage space and not having standing room. That's why we sold it and got 3-foot-itis. The Pearson feels bigger than many 30' boats, so it's been a major upgrade in space.

It's great for weekend-length cruising, around the buoy racing, and day sailing. We had one with the tall rig and with good sails it's actually a pretty good light air boat. I've been next to it a few times with my Pearson where we could get the Catalina moving faster. However once we're up to a little more wind (or motoring) the Pearson is faster.

We sold the C25 to friends, so I'm lucky to get to sail it on a regular basis.
