Nice to have a woman's perspective here. My wife liked them too. Of course, I am always more interested where the kids are going to sit and where Dad and Mom can escape when the Lego's start flying (er, hm, not that it happens on my boat), but I have always liked them for what they are and would consdier them. Tom & Mel Neal raised their two girls on a GS 50 as I recall.
Again, you are not going to win any races... but you sure will be comfortable at the New Years Eve party(s)!!
PS That does not mean the boat YOU are looking at is a good deal. That is a lot of $$ for a GS.
