Everybody is different, but that is a long time on a Catalina 25. The killer for me would be no standing headroom. Our 27 is tight enough for my wife and I for a weekend, having to crouch the entire time on a 25 would not be fun.
Just make sure you spend some time in it before buying so you know. All of the boats in that range will be about the same regarding headroom.
